Average. By far nothing to write home about. It seems - no pride in their surroundings. Such a gorgeous view but the terrace is neglected and unadorned. The pizza did look amazing- so, there is that.

The restaurant has the advantage of being well located for views over the Sasso - if you are on the outside table - but otherwise - nothing to recommend it. The food is very ordinary, and the tables are full of groups eating bulk food...More

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.
