We went here on the recommendation of friends. We set the satnav and off we went...up....up....up! Amazingly we found a parking place right around the corner but I would not depend on this. Probably best to take the funicular and walk. It was a chilly day so sitting outside was not really an option but on a warm day the... More

The name Baretto di San Vigilio says a lot: baretto in Italian is a small bar, and that's what it is, a small bar at the upper station of the cable-car, which in the years has turned into a prestigious, yet unpretentious restaurant. San Vigilio is the other part of the name: it's the area at the very top of... More

Love this restaurant, it is one of the best in Bergamo locality. Degustation menus or just simple meals are always extremely tasty. Atmosphere cosy and romantic and the view is beautiful.

This restaurant is the right place to go for a great meal with a wonderful view (if you eat on the terrace) and awesome service. It is easy to reach, you just take the funicolare from Citta' Alta to San Vigilio and walked few steps. If you are hungry pick a menu, you will try different food and save some... More

Having walked up to the Citta Alta in the morning and having spent time in the beautiful churches and then the wonderful Carrara exhibition I caught the funiculare up to San Vigilio. My host had assured me the views would be stunning. They were. But I needed some where just to sit, draw breath and take in some sustenance. As... More

We were down in October 16th to celebrate our friends birthday and we had the best experience with the food and service they were warm and accommodating . It was like going to a family restaurant, it felt like home. The city was beautiful and there people also. I'm very happy that I went to Bergamo.

This restaurant was mentioned by our tour guide on a day trip to Bergamo and it didn't disappoint. A quiet location with stunning views over the Citta Alta. We had a fixed price lunch that comprised bread, a choice of main course, dessert, wine, water and coffee. All this for E25pp - exceptional value. In addition there were amuse bouche... More

This really was quite an experience. My girlfriend and I arrived at the restaurant at about 7.30 on a Friday evening. The whole place was empty but almost every table was reserved. The restaurant has a lovely outdoor seating area with great views over the city but unfortunately all the outdoor tables were taken so we took a table inside,... More
