Vitantonio Lombardo – Matera, Italy

October 2021

I visited the ‘Vitantonio Lombardo’ restaurant during my Puglia trip in September and October 2021.

The restaurant is awarded with one Michelin star.

I kindly received the description of the courses from the restaurant.

As usual in Matera, this restaurant was located in a cave called Sassi.

It was possible to look through a window into the kitchen.
