Just get in and you feel the ethernal atmosphere of the ancient Bergamo. Nice selection of wines. I had polenta with mushroom. Ideal dish for a cold, rainy day. Fully satisfied with service and price. Highly recommended

If you blink you will miss this place! It looks nothing from the outside and will probably look quite empty, but take heart and grab a table. Lovely simple food, but cooked with love, with great wines and desserts to die for. Take your dictionary if you don't speak Italian, or take pot luck! Great value too. Would certainly go... More

This was directly opposite our hotel Agnello D'Oro and felt we just had to try it as we had used the little bar next door a few times. Great choice and lovely service.

A very nice surprise. The food was really good and the service fast and clear in the description of the dishes they serve. Just let the waiters do their work. We had a local dish, don't recall the name of it. There were two types of polenta, rabbit and chicken oven cooked and a porcini mushroom stove. The "house" red... More

I'm back at Da Ornella after a long absence, drawn in by the ever so good funghi porcini (ceps mushrooms) with polenta gialla (cornmeal flour), which I eat together with a slab of cheese (that's how I asked for the dish to be served). All of the abv is accompanied by a good bottle of Bonarda (a very lively red... More

I first came here more than 30 years ago and, although there is different management, the traditions and menu remain the same. Good, wholesome Bergamasc food served with a smile and in huge portions. Warning, only go here of you are hungry! In the warm weather go through to the small garden area at the back and enjoy your meal... More

They hold me not to have lunch here. And they were RIGHT. Sorry to understand that once this restaurant was famous but now only the name is the same. Very pour meals, low quality kitchen and too high prices. Sorry to say that this is not what we expected and the prices are too expensive if compared with service received.

We have been to this restaurant for the past 2 summers while in Bergamo. It specializes in polenta which we love and we are never disappointed! They have a plain yellow polenta (which is our favorite) and then they have one with butter and cheese. The chicken and polenta is the best. The veal dish isn't great so i would... More

Service was excellent, I believe it was the owner that served us, we ordered around the menu, and with polenta and other local dishes, we all loved what we ate, even the children the pasta was cooked up to their liking...and the other members loved the polenta and the funghi....first class
