In August we had a pleasure to have a special lunch in this cosy, lovely place. Great attention to detail, the food was traditional but modern and every course is a little piece of art. Suggested wine perfectly fitted every moment of the lunch. Desserts...have been a delicious surprise of flavours. The charming and welcoming staff added a touch of perfection! Very reasonably priced, given the services and the quality provided. Absolutely recommended!More

I would go to Venosa over and over again to eat at this lovely restaurant. Ambiance, the ownew, music, lights and menu are in perfect harmony. Staff welcomes you with a taste of a sparkling wine and a lentil soup. We had very limited time...so we had their traditional pasta dish which was spectacular. We will go back again to have a better taste of all other delicacies. My only suggestion is to speed up the coffee service. Thumbs up!More

This is an elegant restaurant - quite distinct from anything else in town. The food is consistent and innovative, with a strong sense of the local traditions and local seasonal ingredients (not sure why asparagus was on the menu in September, though). The wine suggestions...were local/regional and excellent. The service was charming.More

One of the few places I know that manages to prepare traditional dishes from Badilicata in a modern way. Just delicious!! Decent prices and high quality of food and service. The wine choice is as well excellent.
