The place is very nice, with a great atmosphere created by the light on the carved stone. It's spacious and very clean. The service very efficient at the beginning became irregular and then inexistent : after a quickly served first cours we had to wait a good 30 minutes for the pizza when other tables were served straight to the...

Very popular restaurant both for locals and tourists. Pizza here is exactly as Neapolitan tradition suggests, with buffalo mozzarella, basic dough and fresh ingredients. The spot is also very charming and cosy on the way to the main tours and attractions of Matera. It is ideal for lunch and dinner and it gets very busy on the weekends when bookings... More

We came here after a terrible meal at La Talpa just up the road, we had been put off food so just wanted a few drinks. We were staying at a B&B just above it. The service was fabulous, the lovely young man who served us very easy on the eye. I really wished we had eaten at this place... More

This is a wonderful place in a high arching cave. Extensive wine list but really the place is unique.

Recommended by our accommodation owner for the pizza this restaurant turned out to be much more than the average. While it is large, the interior setting has nooks and edges that provide a little privacy. The courses were all generous; unfortunately for us we did not want a large meal so limited ourselves to sharing the Tagliere Lucano (four local... More

We read about this on Trip Advisor, and others had recommended it - we wanted to love it but it didn't work out that way for us. It's a great setting - inside a cave, and I would recommend eating inside for that experience. Our waiter was great, the wine was good, the salad was nice. We ordered four different... More

Set right in the heart of the Matera Sassi - Oi Mari gives options for lunch and dinner. Large selection of Neapolitan Pizza's with thin crust. Also a full selection of primi and secondi dishes. You can eat inside in the cave or outside under the umbrella's - either is a delightful choice.

We visited for lunch on a hot day in Sept.. the outside seating under the canopy is a welcome break from the heat.. we had a pasta and a pizza dish and both were authentic and so tasty.. staff are really friendly and the inside of the restaurant is also very beautiful and I imagine very romantic in the evening.....
