The birthplace of stracciatella didn’t disappoint. Very creamy gelato with huge chunks of chocolate. Tip: if you get table service the smallest serving is 6 euros.

Well what can you say when you visit the please where stracciatella was made for the first time! You just have to visit right? And what, you want me to tell you about stracciatella? You think that there is a place elsewhere that could make...it better? Don’t think so, and this is a person who eats a lot of ice cream talking! Furthermore some of the other flavours like pistachio and vanilla where also great so I figure they know their job when they talk about ice cream. Moreover the environment was nice (even though I went late at night) the service was good very polite and always ready to serve you. Many options many varieties and the prices (if you are wondering) where good also! You go there for the stracciatella but you find out many more…More

It's the place where stracciatella was invented. You should try it! It's a nice place to relax and have some coffee or something to eat.

We visited it with my friends on a sunny October day. The atmosphere was wonderful! Amazing coffee and cakes! The Polenta Cake is very traditional for the region and is a must to try it! True Italian experience!

I can imagine this is one of the not many restaurants in Bergamo that can meet the demand for a business dinner for many dozens of people, as ours was. Certainly, some dinner conditions were particular: the first courses and desserts were served at the...tables, while a buffet was organized for the main courses. But what was uniformly high was the level of food served. After a welcome aperitif, two samples of first courses were served: fisherman's rice, and the omnipresent (in Bergamo) “casoncelli”, ie a type of pasta. The food served as a buffet was: - Typical local cheeses with honey and "mostarda" (please note: this is not mustard, but a typical, delicious side dish from Lombardy) - Cooked vegetables from the Bergamo valleys - Roast beef with balsamic vinegar - Salmon (exhibited and served as whole fish) The dessert was an excellent "stracciatella" style ice cream (the restaurant prides itself on being the inventor of this flavor). The bill was 30 euros each: earned by the restaurant to the last cenr.More

What a place, service and food. After 3 fantastic days in Italy we ended a fantastic trip with late dinner at La Mariana. The food was excellent and the service superb. The wine a good match to all the different food that was presented for...us. So thanks for a fantastic evening.More

Marianna used to be one of the best coffee and gelato shop in town. Now thanks to an incompetent managing has become the typical tourist trap: high prices, poor quality products ( and not freshly prepared nor served) and a appalling service where you will...be treated as a nuisance by uncorteous and rude waiters. To be carefully avoided .More

Located across the Funicolare San Vigilio in Colle Aperto, this pastry shop offers many options for breakfast if you don't want just a croissant. You can choose a pastry from the cases inside. Unfortunately, the server was curt and not helpful when trying to order...but the coffee and pastries were okay - nothing extraordinary.More

They're the only ones who do it." You can come here in the morning for breakfast, eat outside or in, then have lunch, then dinner, then dessert, and by all means do not bypass dessert. La Marianna is a bar, a restaurant, a bistro, a...cafe and a gelateria. Get the Stracchiatella, which was invented in this spot. Molto delicioso. Atmosphere inside and out is wonderful. The place hops from morning until late at night: lots of action, lots of good energy. A quintessential Italian experience.More
