We loved this place. Lovely food, a busy, buzzy atmosphere, and friendly staff. The house wine, a local Primitivo went down well and the portions of food were generous.

The Restaurant Pizzeria The Balcony Matera is surrounded by the stunning landscape of the "Sassi". It is the ideal place to enjoy the excellent cuisine traditional Lucan, godendo al contempo dello scenario dei Sassi di Matera. It owes its name to the wide terrace che si affaccia sul meraviglioso scenario del Sasso Barisano.
