Matera: Nadi

Via Fiorentini 1/3 Sasso Barisano , Phone: 0835.332892

Reviewed by: valerie from Italy, review #2711

When: 2007

Lovely atmosphere, good food, and kindly service.

Directions: In the Sassi

Part of the restaurant is housed in an excavated cave and part constructed out from it in the typical tufa rock blocks, making this a characteristic structure of the Sassi. While it’s on the tourist path they take pride in serving up authentic local fare.

It was a chilly and rainy night when we dined here so the substantial dishes and warming Aglianico wine were perfect. I opted for a speciality of the zone I’d never encountered before, la crapiata (yes, that name is just a joke waiting to happen), composed of three types of legumes in a filling soup.

That and a salad, after the typical five-plate Lucanian antipasto, was all I could manage. Bryan had the orecchiette topped with sautéed breadcrumbs and crumbled peperoni cruschi, a real local dish deriving from la cucina povera.
