A place full of wines. Food was excellent. We tried two main plates, three glasses of wine, dessert and espressos, everything was OK.

I don't understand why this restaurant gets such good reviews. OK, its got a nice wine cellar feel but we found it cramped (See traveller photo by photoMoniker). Staff seemed disjointed as if they were not sure of their roles. We selected wine from the menu but despite the hundreds of bottles decorating the room, they were out of that... More

Wine cellar atmosphere with a menu of traditional Bergamo food made with great care. We came here straight after our flight got in that morning in Milan, and what a way to start our trip. The wine (and prosecco!) list is excellent. We decided to get the most classic dishes: taragna polenta with wild mushrooms, and Casconcelli (meat-filled ravioli in... More

In this restaurant we were met very friendly. First we chose as main course rabbit with polenta. When we chose as first course ravioli with butter and sage, the host said, that ravioli is suitable to share . It was a good advise. The hole meal was tasty. The wines recomeded by the host were suitable with the meal.

A small doorway down a dark street opens to reveal a wonderful surprise. What a lovely restaurant and superb, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Reservation highly recommended. I'm finding it difficult to price it though - "mid range" would indicate it's cheaper than it is, but neither is it over-expensive. Value for money it definitely is, including a wonderful wine list,... More

The owner and his son welcomed us with a big smile, speak excellent English (the father...), explain each plate. My daughter did not like her chosen plate. They replaced it instantly without charging us. The food was excellent. My Corniglio w Risotto was divine.

Very nice atmosphere with shelves full of wine bottles surrounding you all over and creating an intimate ambience. The number one specialty is of course the local polenta and you have to like it, otherwise you would be disappointed

My wife and I had dinner here and the food/service was very good. They get very busy starting at 7:30pm which is a bit early for Italy, but there were a number of tourists as well as locals. Wait staff spoke good English and were a help with questions Re the menu and wine choices. Once they filled up it... More

If a local eats there for a typical dish in the area, then it's worth checking out. We went there on our first evening and was quite lucky to get a seat right away since we didn't have any reservation.

We found this quite by accident, looking for a place a bit off the main street and the piazza. It was a lucky find. The food was good and I think quite typical of the region, the wine selection excellent, with a great local grappa to finish. The tableware was beautiful, especially the glasses made in Treviso, and everyone was... More
