Restaurant

Our gastronomic itinerary is able to refresh even the most tired palates.
Matera’s cuisine is simple and genuine with pronounced yet balanced flavours.
Its cornetto bread, caciocavallo cheese, “l’uschiante” (sharp aged ricotta), stewed turnips, chickling pea puree, baked orecchiette, roasted lamb with potatoes, “la crapiata” (a dish of legumes prepared on 1st August).
All of this and much more, paired with an Aglianico DOC wine will welcome you to the land of the Sassi.

San Pietro Barisano restaurant is in the heart of the Sassi. The interior of the restaurant reflects the beauty of the location and its traditional structure as a cave-dwelling has been further renovated with a refined and elegant design
