We were in Bergamo and found this trattoria. It was packed with non tourist locals. The menu was very typical northern Italian food. The staff was very helpful and fun. We enjoyed our experience at this restaurant.

Need to book. On arrival you are greeted by a family member. Try the slow cooked rabbit or chicken all served with very good polenta, good wine and a nice cosy atmosphere. Some English spoken, good service at a reasonable price.

Actually we we were not convinced to try polenta although it's very common in Lombardy region (at least that's what the guidebook says). However we gave it a try at Trattoria da Ornella and I must say it was not a bad move. We ordered two kinds of polenta. One was their speciality, polenta taragna (with addition of cheese) and...

A genuine restaurant that offers delicious regional food. Besides the classic polenta, I would suggest to try the "stinco" (pork shin). The service is a little bit too slow, however it worths to wait :)

Typical Bergamasco restaurant with great house wine, we tried two bottles of the Valcalepio with the polenta Taragna, polenta ai funghi porcini and cognilio. We have also the opportunity to share with the maître a great talk about Italian politician!! On Bergamo we always go to Da Ornella!!

I've been living in the north of Italy for a few years now and lived with an Italian family for a couple of those years- so we can say I've had 'real' Italian food ;) If you ever find yourself in Bergamo Alta, this is the place to eat. I took my American friends here that were visiting and have... More

We found this restaurant very expensive and the food was not good. We ate better food on the new part of town. The rabbit was dry and over cooked. The portions were very generous but the quality was not great.
