Enjoy a taste of local and delicious italian food

Matera, Italy


At my place you'll feel welcomed since the first moment. Usually people hang out in the kitchen while I'm cooking or somebody else is making dinner (yes, my kitchen inspires lots of people). I love to cook traditional italian food, handmade pasta, simple and tasty food made by genuine and local ingredients. I'm happy to let people try what we really eat, how we like to sort the flavours and appreciate any single one.
