Asked for an aperitif at lunchtime. Good grief it was as if we had insulted the young woman! She banged the glasses on the countertop, poured the wine and left us to it & totally ignored us for the time it took us to drink the mediocre local red. We will not return.

average experience of dinner here. waiter was more or less uninterested in providing anything like customer service, and couldn't wait for us to pay up and move on. to be fair, the food was decent enough and not expensive, so maybe he was having an off day. given the choices of places to eat, take your time and consider the...

My second time in Bergamo, my second time in this restaurant recently. This says a lot. I didn't remember where it was and I kept walking until I saw the nice outdoor patio and I recognised it. Beautiful, small but atmosphaeric restaurant with home made Italian Cuisine. I was never lucky enough with the weather to sit outdoors, but inside... More

The drinks and the snacks we tried were very good (wines, Spritz and the "day snack) and have a good relationship price - quality, but their dishes -pasti and lasagna- were very expensive (over €12 anyone). The desserts were ok. The service is quite good and the place outside is beautiful and very well located.

The waiters were not polite. They did not offer anything, did not prepared table properly. It felt like they wanted to get rid off you quickly. Compared to prices you expect to get high value services. The beef was good, however other dishes not as good.

So I don't eat there but as I passes by, I saw they homemade cakes and decided to get one portion to go. I asked for the local cake (made with polenta) so the portion was €5, and it was actually small but the taste was so good, compared to other places where there sell it. So I can only... More

Unfortunately this restaurant was an utter dissapointment. The service was very poor, with waitresses being unfriendly and ignoring us for most of the time (it was even an effort to signal staff to request the bill at the end). The portions were the size of a starter/appetizer and double the price to other restaurants in the area and the quality... More
