Italy // Basilicata and Calabria //

Eating and drinking

Thanks to the surge in tourism, there’s plenty of choice for eating in Matera. In spite of its close proximity to the sea, traditional Materan food is dominated by meat dishes. You’ll find lots of cafés and bars around Piazza San Pietro Caveoso and along Via Buozzi in the Sassi, or in and around Piazza Vittorio and Piazza Sedile in Piano.
