Last year, I dined at this unique and picturesque family-owned restaurant on a trip to Brescia and I had such a fine experience that I returned yesterday evening to dine with my two good friends and Brescia natives, Drs. Giulia Valerio and Francesco Magli. The menu focuses on the traditional cuisine of Brescia with a special emphasis on polenta, cheeses,... More

We arranged to meet friends here and I had made a booking for 7.30, somewhat early as it turned out. The waitress however made us feel welcome and offered Prosecco and bread , and dinner became a lovely experience. Walking past you can easily miss it, as it has great big wooden doors at the front but it belies a... More

We had a wonderful meal consisting of orzo soup, minestrone sporca (a local specialty with chicken livers), veal sweet breads with artichokes and creamy potatoes, and two fine deserts (strawberries with vanilla ice cream and a croquante with vanilla ice cream). With one glass of wine, water and cover charge, this meal cost 54€.

We were here for the 2nd time. First visit we had lunch and this time we had a 2 course dinner. Again it was a great experience. The food is fresh and the products are homemade. The staff is very friendly and they speak English. We had the housewine (a local product ) that was outstanding! We can't wait to... More

The food here is superb and it's very hard to chose what to have as it is all so fantastic. Especially the puddings.

We showed up at 7:30 pm on a Tuesday night. As soon as they found out we were American, they had no interest in letting us eat there. Our luggage had been lost so we were dressed in just jeans.

I have been eating here many times for the last 10 years. If you want to enter a high quality typical local Trattoria, experience a very peculiar ambiance, enjoy typical local dishes (pasta, horse meat, different type of salami) and have good wine at a reasonable prices this is the place. It is good also to celebrate birthday or small... More

We were in Brescia for only one night and wanted to experience the cuisine. This restaurant is a gem. We loved the historic nature of the place and an authentic charm. The food was excellent. We had a risotto with spinach and melted gorgonzola which was amazing. Nice service too. Great find!
