Ate here several times over a month Lin period. Starts with a great selection of craft beers on draft(they are not cheap though at €6 plus a pint). Also had their steak on a few occasions and it's melt in your mouth stuff. So tasty, if a little oily. Would highly recommend for the steak alone, best I'd eaten in... More

So, the service was TERRIBLE. It took over half an hour before the waitress acknowledged our existence and a little longer before we got to place an order (of all four or five tables that were occupied when we arrived, another two more at its peak). The drinks order took about half an hour to arrive - and was not... More

Well, let's say it "short-and-to-the-point": It is really very "rare" to find a place in Italy that present Belgian beers and steak the same way like people at Al Groove Do!.... VOLMAKEN!

I only had a couple of beers in this very nice bar/grill in the center of Matera but they also serve food which I hope to try next time. Great beer and friendly staff!

Had to wait almost 25 minutes to have a beer and food arrived after 1hour and 10 minutes. Two waiters serving about 15-20 tables, it is NOT normal! And also, it was very pleasant outside but no tables. Could be better if service was faster.

It was my birthday. After reading all the good TA reviews, I persuaded my wife to walk here (about half an hour each way). It took a bit of finding, down a small side street. When we arrived, we got a drink, then asked for a table. However, there was a private party about to start in an hour's time,... More

Dear cheshiredave, Thank you for choosing GROOVE beer and Grill and having reviewed his experience here on TripAdvisor. I am very sorry for your bad experience lived twice in our pub. Unfortunately when we organize private parties with at least 60 people, our staff, the kitchen and the space is entirely dedicated to them and it is impossible to satisfy... More

The atmosphere is great, especiallly in the summer, the service is perfect and the food is wonderful. The passion the guys have selecting the greatest beer from italy or all over the world make this place unique. A must for anyone wants to enjoy a good taste italian food and drink that's not the ordinary italian stereotype...

I traveled in early May to Matera from the USA, and enjoyed excellent food and service at The Groove. One of the dishes I especially enjoyed was orecchiette with turnip greens with crispy red peppers and a dessert of birramisu (like tiramisu, except made with beer), which was light and delicious, and a cheesecake with fresh strawberries. They also have... More
