We had the buffet lunch and it was fantastic, very fresh and very high quality and the staff would come round with other things to try which were not even on the buffet menu....if you are in the old town in Bergamo...you have to go!

The place is very typical but modern with walls in ancient stones in the lower floor and old timber beams in the ground floor.... More

At 11 euros (2016) for a help yourself buffet I doubt there is better value to be found in Bergamo. Lots of choice and everything tasted great. Thank you.

The restaurant was a surprising mix of modern and ancient. We tried the local specialty, the casoncelli and the big dessert mix. We had a very good dinner.

We were looking for tasty food, nice place and restaurant where we couldn't wait a year for the bill. We decided to go there for Free bufet. It was very good choice. We had here a big selection of salads, main food and dessert. Waitres were polite and kind. Thank you for experience.
