Lovely meals, rustic style dishes in the back lanes of Maratea. Something different than the usual pizza and pasta. Definitely recommend if you're looking for something with great flavour and a bit left of centre.

Genuine food, well prepared from traditional cuisine typical of the region. Good wines and service. Highly recommend. Try podolica steak even if you don't like meat. These cows roam the hill above Maratea eating mountain herbs, pasture and flowers.

We had a one night stopover in Maratea and had to pick one place and boy did we pick right. The staff were helpful, the food was amazing and deeply rooted in basilicata history. Absolutely great.

Tipical regional restaurant revisited. Cool atmosphere in the old and narrow alleys of the historical town center. Nice and friendly staff serving regional and meat courses. After dinner with Juan's cocktails. Good music. Speaking italian, english, spanish, french and some portuguese.
