Getting lost in Bergamo Alta, we found this place at the foot of the hill. Food super good, cheap and the host is very kind. He provided us with bus tickets as we didn t have any and we had to reach the city centre

We visited this place just half an hour ago and got the tasting menu because we were really tired and didn't want to spend time digging into the menu. I do not recommend it!

We had salame and a bacon thing which name I can't recall and polenta for starters. Meat was okay but the polenta is not well made. Very thick and somewhat clumpy.
Primi was Bergamo ravioli and risotto con porcini. The ravioli was nice but...I don't think you can really call yourself a restaurant if you heat food in the microwave, that was a problem with all hot foods. Unevenly heated as well. The risotto tasted good but I am not a fan of mushrooms in general.
The main course was some beefy meat with more polenta (with herbs?) and red wine sauce. The meat was not good, it was overdone and sauce was simply a failure. Polenta was same as before, clumpy.
For dessert we had crostata which was okay except it was burnt.
The carafe red wine was not very good either, drinkable but definitely not recommended.

The service was very friendly although a bit clumsy (forgot our water and utensils for one dish) but definitely good! They spoke english and had english menu too.

I suppose their pizza is better because I saw locals eating that.

Two stars for food, pizza probably better, great service!

The down-hill walk pays, the Roccolino is a genuine Italian restaurant with good, even not very well-known dishes. All tasty and fresh. We were nearly the first to arrive, but our choice of the house set dinner menu kept us enjoying long after sunset. The menu contains two appetizers, two primi, two secondi, dessert and coffee + wine and water for a cheap 25 € price. A tour of local tastes and specialities. Please enter with a big appetite!

This restaurant serves a typical Italian cuisine- hearty, simple, yet delicious. The enviroment is not striking beautiful but not ugly either. We have a ham/cheese platter for a starter, then 2 mains (polenta with trio of rabbit, braised beef and porcini; and polenta with snails with porcini), one pizza to share and bottle of Valcalepio for 65€. Our waiter was friendly and efficient. While this restaurant is not certainly the most memorable, I can definitely recommend it if you want unpretentious classical Italian meal for a great price! It has also a nice terrace which can be perfect spot during summer.

We arrived having had a stay in Sorrento for the main part of our holiday. This was better than most of the restaurants we ate at previously, simply because it was so authentic! Menu in Italian and cooked with love - what more could you ask for? Our waiter was so helpful with translations.
Best tip - order the Tiramisu!
