Fantastic vegetarian and vegan-friendly food! - Edit

I was recently in Matera to visit my host family from my year as an exchange student, and my host aunt and I decided to try this restaurant for a night out. We were amazed, and spent the night eating some of the best vegetarian Italian food we'd ever had!

Fior di Cucuzza has a menu with plenty of options, many of them vegan friendly. A lot of the food or the style in which it's cooked is specific to Southern Italy, and you can really taste the high quality of their local ingredients. It can be a little pricey for some (main plates are in the 10-12 euro range), but it would also make for a fantastic night out if you've been saving your euro cents during your whole trip. : ) I've eaten a LOT of top notch Southern Italian food, and this is among my best and most memorable restaurant experiences. If you can, save room for dessert (we split the ricotta cream with peaches) and try one of the housemade liquors (incredible!!!).

Pros: Fantastic food, Local ingredients, Southern Italian cooking style

Fresh food, menu also in English - Edit

Cozy restaurant in the center of Matera. Everything on the menu is vegetarian. Menu available in English, Italian, French and German, and staff speaks English fluently. Ingredients are very fresh and locally produced, sothat dishes vary somewhat depending on what is available that day. The food was original in composition and above all very tasty. Nice mix of the typical Italian kitchen with its fresh food and overall culinary quality on the one hand, and not so Italian attitude towards meat on the other.

Pros: Fresh ingredients, Multilingual, Good atmosphere

Cons: Somewhat small portions, average price

Good food, but waited for it - Edit

We had barley soup, jacket potato and vegetable tempura. The food is nutritious and tasty. Some beer selection, but a few craft beers were pricey. On our visit there was only one person doing everything - so even though the restaurant wasn't even half full a few of us had to wait to order.

Pros: Healthy, tasty food , Good location

Cons: Slow service

Very good vegan / vegetarian option - Edit

I spent 3 days in the area and was positively surprised to find this small restaurant in the city centre. The menu lists a few options that are all made of locally harvested ingredients. I had a very good dinner there (soup + first course) accompanied by a glass of Aglianico.

Pros: excellent food, friendly staff, good location
