Was recommended by Patrizia our ever helpful contact whilst staying at Divinosuite 20. Didn't book a table but managed to get a table for 4 on a Friday night, think we were lucky as it was pretty busy with mainly locals. We shared a meat...and cheese platter to start, then went in for pasta and a mixed fried fish, food came out pretty quick and was pretty good all round, not massive portions, but we're in Italy right and meant to order 4 courses. Definitely worth a visit, nice atmosphere, a good mix of people and a dog.More

We ate here on our last day in Bergamo. It's a delight to sit in the covered garden area, it feels like your attending a local wedding or celebration. We went for the lunchtime set menu for 15 euros which is excellent value. I wasn't...sure what to expect but it was all extremely tasty.More

The worst culinair experience during 3 weeks in north of Italy. Food itself maybe not that bad but all around it truly terrible. Primi piatti came cold. Upon providing the feedback to the waitress we heard it is a long distance from the kitchen. When...eating my primo piatto, sth dropped from the bottom of my plate to the table. The plate was dirty with some other food. Upon providing this feedback, a waitress started the discussion it is normal as people carrying food to tables have multiple plates to carry (???!!!). It took ca 40 min to remove first plates from the table ( a lot of service guys walking pass during that time). From that moment on, the service got even worse. Then the main arrived.... and surprise surprise cold again. And really cold like after waiting for at least 10 min in the pass. I am truly sorry we have waisted our last holidays evening there. A big big mistake- non professional customer service bad communication between kitchen and waiters and a lot to improve. Appareny targetted at massa non returning customers... a pity.More

Buzzing but relaxed atmosphere, huge terrace and utterly delicious food and wine - all at extremely reasonable prices. I would love to come back and try more of the menu.

On our travels through Norden Italy we met guys from Bergamo who recommended this restaurant as a place locals like and go to. So we had to try. The place has a HUGE outside seating. When we arrived we were told they are full so...we made a reservation for later and we are happy we did. The food was excellent (ordered Casoncelli and the other non meat version - both highly recommended!) as well as pizza. The staff was attentive and we had an awesome evening.More

My husband and I ate here twice on our recent trip to Bergamo. We were recommended it by our hotel, otherwise we would never have found it. It is down a side street and there is almost nothing to indicate it is there - just...a menu outside. When you go in it doesn't even look like it is a restaurant but keep going.... The food is excellent quality, the staff are good and the view from the terrace is fabulous. There is also an excellent good value wine list. Nothing not to like.More

Delicious food in outdoor setting with great views of the mountains. Service was prompt and not pushy. Leave room for dessert!

I’m really glad I found this little restaurant hidden in the little streets of Bergamo historic city For 15€, you can take the menu which provides you with first course, second course, water, wine and coffee ! (See the photo) More than the price, the...food is excellent and the service and restaurant really look like an expensive classy one Everything is clean and taken care of, the staff is nice, if I’d stay longer in the dirt, I’d have gone there every dayMore

I read about this place and decided to book a table. It really is fantastic, the food was tasty and cooked to perfection and the wine at 15 euros per bottle was chilled beautifully and tasted really good.The service was faulless and their prices are...much cheaper than other restaurants we saw and they do a brilliant job in their community. A must do when in Bergamo, you won't be disappointed.More

We had a lovely experience at the restaurant - we tried some local dishes - casoncelli alla bergamasca and polenta taragna. Together with some local beer. We tried also the desert and we were not disappointed. There was also a wedding when we were there...and we were enchanted also by old italian songs. Personnel was friendly and effective. The restaurant can become crowded and it is difficult to find a free table at the classical hours for lunch and dinner.More

Il Circolino is a non-for-profit coop whose restaurant supports social projects for the residents of Bergamo Alta, including senior citizens and the underprivileged. The food is very good and less expensive than analogous restaurants in the neighborhood. The restaurant is located in rooms with high...vaults and old frescos that add charm and magic to your meal.More
