Beautiful restaurant, excellent food, dignified and professional service. Food and atmosphere was bit on the heavy side, so it’s less for casual dinner and more for a special occasion. I was really surprised that the place was rather empty. I guess that despite the high-class and excellence, the old-school atmosphere has less appeal nowdays. Felt a bit sad for the... More

Alrbough a little old fashioned it can still provide you with a sense of quality. Beautiful breaded scallops and truffle pasta for starters and a delightful bacon wrapped saffron sauced venison chop made this dining experience superb coupled with a local tanin rich Valcalepio wine. Cheers!

We no reservation for lunch but were given a warm welcome. The menu was mouthwatering and the food excellent. The friendly staff were very helpful regarding the choice of food and wine and we really enjoyed the experience of good Italian food.

After reading the reviews here about how this place was always empty, we turned up for dinner only to be turned away due to unavailability. So we went back the next day for lunch. The food was stunning, lots of flavour without too much fuss. Excellent staff, friendly and helpful. A large venue but not too many tables so plenty... More

Restaurant is located in a quiet spot. Have a lovely garden for good weather. We were inside. Decorated with light colors, have a pleasant atmosphere. We received genuine explanations for all the dishes in detail; where the ingredients come from, whether they are frozen or fresh etc etc. We ordered only two local pasta; one tagliolini with duck ragu and...

We visited this restaurant in April 2014. Even though it was a Saturday night, the place was quite empty. The food was really lovely and we enjoyed ourselves. There was a large selection of wine. It's not cheap but the quality makes up for this. The place is designed/decorated like an art studio, which makes it bright and spacious; in... More

Very strange place. There was more waiters than clients and they were walking all the time through the restaurant what was very annoying. The food was not value for money,all was decorated with carrot:). It was edable but nothing special. If you are hyngry you must to prepare much money, portions were extrimelly small.

This was a great find in Bergamo! Lovely atmosphere, excellent service and some of the most delicious food I've had! I had scallop risotto and then strudel. The wine is also incredibly reasonably priced.

Via tripadvisor we visited the most popular restaurant on the site in Bergamo, Italy. It was eye-closing good, we tasted the typical italian, delicious food and our eyelids dropped down many times because of the fine taste. We brought two teenage nieces who were both astonished. One said: I don't want to take the last bite, 'cause then it's over...... More
