Loved the 3 courses I ve ordered, loved the interior! Enjoyable chat with the owner. Do not miss a Salsiiccia pezzente to start!

Emanuele has created a space that is intimate and comfortable. He presents beautiful plates of local cheeses and meats and matches them perfectly with wines from the region. It was difficult to stop eating! And the cookies to finish the meal - yum! This has to be on your list of places not to be missed when you visit Matera!

This was on the top of my list of local places to try while visiting Matera. So glad we tried it. Has a nice relaxed friendly atmosphere with many locals. Has both indoor and nice outdoor seating. Although there was a language issue, our young waiter tried really hard to guide us. We shared a platter of local cheeses and... More

We ordered a tasting for one, to share, and then one portion of local “black pork” sausage and some vegetables. The tasting was of several cheeses. The platter had small slices of goat cheese, one flavored with fennel seeds, one with saffron, one with red wine and one with orange. In the center was a powerful slice of pecorino. There... More

A good location tucked down an alleyway with indoor & outdoor seating, friendly staff & the place to come if you want to try locally sourced cheese, meat & wine. It's not the cheapest place you will find but the portions are generous & the mixed cheese & meat starting plate is a meal itself.

We remember the Latteria before its reincarnation as a restaurant. It's still a charming source of good quality cured meat and cheese, but on out last visit to buy a selection for a lunch we were disappointed with the very high final cost. Not helped by the fact that the individual items had no visible prices per kg, we went... More

Cheeses and meats that will be the highlight of your trip. The most amazing ricotta with fig balsamic and Mozzarella with cream - all made by the shop. Absolutely, the best I have ever had.
