Located a minutes walk from the main Cathedral square & best described as excellent. Menu typically Italian but varied. Nothing to be critical of as the food, presentation, staff & ambience were all that one could wish for. Treated to a night both inside & out by an excellent Italian choir (so good we bought their CD). If in Bergamo... More

We had a lovely meal here- the ravioli bergamo style was the highlight! Nice atmosphere with other diners - although our waiter was not the friendliest ( he could hardly bring himself to speak!!). Nice location in the old town.

The restaurant in the Citta Alta square that had tables in the sun had no tables available, and probably was just a wine bar, so we found da Franco, a restaurant on the way back to the bus, inside. We had foiade pasta with fungi porcini and casoncelli, a little different from the previous night at La Cantina and not... More

Ate here only one time during our vacations in Bergamo. Very busy place at noon. Ordered a menu /21 Euro/: the lasagne was superb, the second not so: polenta was mediocre, the beef was tasteless. Husband ordered an ossobucco vitello (one of his favorite meals) - but this one was very though... I think, a pizza would have been a... More

Had lunch here after fighting our way through the Old Town and locating our B&B. It has inside and outside options. We had a seafood pizza with artichokes and olives.Nice bar and wine list. Good service, although a little slow as they were somewhat busy. Nice interior. Popular with locals. On the main drag through town (Via Colleen).

Even it seems easy to choose a restaurant in Bergamo, it might be a little hard to find ond that satisfy every taste.Da Franco Ristirante has a large variation, we've ordered a special Bergamo dish, zuppa di cozze and a an oven fish - everything was very tasty. The service is also good. Good prices - lower than the others... More

On free lunch time from our Trafalgar tour, wife and I discovered this excellent restaurant tucked in a small square of the main piazza in Bergamo. We had excellent service and fine good. I much enjoyed the regional casoncelli and my wife enjoyed the polenta with mushrooms. We had a small bottle of mineral water and each a glass of... More

Ate here three times as the food is so good and such great value for money. The tagliatelle with ragu is one of the best I've tasted. My friend had the seafood with tagliatelle which could actually feed two! The house wine is so good we just had that....half a litre at €5 we felt was very good value. Service... More

Had a really fantastic meal here while on holiday, I had casconcelli my wife had risotto followed by lamb chops and sea bass, it was fantastic, the only was the portions were huge, I could hear myself putting weight on. Brilliant place that proves the saying if it's busy it's good, this place was packed.
