Rustic cozy indoors as well as the outdoors; two inviting terraces one under the arches and the other by the church with old frescoes, if want an outdoor table better reserve or come early because those are the first to be gone. We had some...appetizers with salami and cheese cuts, pickles and Olivier salad (12,00); homemade casoncelli (dumplings) and whole wheat ravioli (10,00 each) and a delicious braised rabbit (12,00) with cornmeal and cheese (5,00) Good food, portions were a bit small but OK because the dishes were thick and heavy. There are two indoor dining rooms with vaulted roof and stenciled, good place for small family or friends reunions; toilets are tiny (this is an ancient house). Service from chef and the lady manager welcomed, less from the waitresses; if they could avoid mocking customers gestures, hairstyles, dresses comparing us to freaks (no intentional eavesdrop!) would be much nicer.More

My wife and I ate lunch here on Friday August 24. It had been recommendedto us by Michelle, the hostess at the nearby Museo Dei Tasso. It is outside of San Giovanni Bianco and parking is challenging. We sat outside which even on a warm...day was pleasant. The decor is nothing fancy but comfortable. But the dining experience is incredible, one of the most delicious and authentic meals we have ever enjoyed. We had a sampler of local cheese, meats and fruits to start, followed by casenolli (local pasta dish) and followed by veal stew, all perfect, fresh and tasty. We also had a 0.30 liter of the local red wine, very good. Our server was excellent, helped with questions and was quick on follow-ups. We also had pannacote with a grappa for dessert, some of the best ever. All for a reasonable price. We recommend this highly and suggest if you are in the area ( even driving from Milan) you make the effort to have a meal here.More

Let a true northern Italian tell you, this place is everything you might ever want and need from northern italy. This is my favourite place and the restaurant in which I hope to have my wedding reception one day. Not only the food is locally...grown, tasty and of an amazing quality, but Chef Franco has a way of cooking which is traditional and yet incredible at the same time. His dishes are always great and taste like home, but at the same time he knows how to reinvent them everytime. He's as well the most kind and lovely host, who drives you through a different menu every night and makes you discover the magic of real italian food.More

When we arrived we were not sure what to expect from what, at first, appeared to be a local cafe/bar in a very small hamlet. We were welcomed warmly, and then were talked through the meal in prospect. 2 hours later we had greatly enjoyed...beautiful local food, superbly cooked and served, Highlights were the salami, dried beef, sublime gnocchi, wild game etc etc. A memorable lunch - thank you Franco and your team.More

Cozy atmosphere and delicious dishes. I went to this restaurant with friends and all were amazed by the excellence of the food. All the dishes are prepared with local ingredients coming from "Valle Brembana". The chef adds to local recipes a touch of creativity. The...staff is very welcoming and the chef always tries to make the guests comfortable. Casoncelli, the most typical dish from Bergamo, are unbelievably tasty. The second courses lived up the expectations we had after starting consuming the first courses: the meat was very tender and perfectly cooked! The wine was outstanding too. If you are looking for great food and reasonable prices, this is the right place to go to!More

I ate in this place a few weeks ago. Everything was good. We ate Gnocchi with cheese and 'Brasato'. Very very palatable. The staff is kind and friendly. The atmosphere and the location are cozy. I recommend it.

I always make a point of visiting Taverna Arlecchino every time I am in Bergamo. Outstanding local food, chef Franco brings his knowledge and skills to the table with a great deal of passion. The setting is just perfect, in an ancient historical house. Perfect...for every occasion. Maybe a priced a bit higher than the average restaurant nearby but there ia a reason for it! In my opinion it is always good value for money too.More

If it wasn't for my tour guide I would have never known that in a small town of 50 people lived an unremarkable chef named "Franco". Taverna di Arlecchino is truly a gem in the Brembana Valley. It is a small rustic family ran restaurant...that is very quaint and set in a medieval village. This area is known for its cheese and polenta. We started with a beautiful plate of different cheeses with some wine pairings followed by one of the best polenta dishes ever with truffle and porcini mushrooms. I was the only one in the restaurant with my guide Sara. We were treated like one of the family. Franco is very hospitable and will do anything for you. Please spread the word to your friends it is an experience in itself. If you are lucky enough....he will even show you the famous romantic house of Harlequin!! A little costly for one person, but worth it.More
