“Lovely, nice place, excellent kitchen, wines and service”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

My first choice always when I visit the Città Alta di Bergamo is the "Al Donizetti". The open place under the old arcades of the terrace at this restaurant, the atmosphere, the wine selection, the dishes and the service are absolutely a must during a visit to this wonderful city.
I recommend to taste a tris of pate de foie gras with marmelade and onion jam, for the main course a classical "tagliata" and one of the excellent red wines they will suggest you.
For sure, the cheese mix to close dinner was excellent as well.

“Casoncelli with hot chocolate!!!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

We visited the Città Alta over 2 days... rainy, sunny and windy! We visited Al Donizetti twice because we just loved the Casoncelli and the hot chocolate... which is really creamy!!! Succulent and not too expensive! A place to go!

“Real Italy Passion”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

It's not easy to find an authentic restaurant as we know it from the past where you can feel the Italian soul and passion. I found it here: Italian passion and joy in a room with filled with Italian lust for life and pride hosts who are serving you fresh food.

“Delicious/random”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

The polenta here is delicious and our waiter was terrific- personable, attentive, friendly. We had a cozy lunch in this terrific little gem of a resturant. However, after a day of sight seeing, we found ourselves back at this resturant. We ordered a "nugget" and asked for them to call a cab home. The nugget happened to be 12 euro? not sure how as it wasn't weighted, I think we paid for them to call the cab which was a bit disappointing when we had had a lengthy expensive lunch. Overall great food, cozy resturant deserving of a visit.

“Wonderful Ambience and Food”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

The food was very good. My wife ordered the Funghi porcini con polenta, porcini mushrooms with polenta. I ordered the Casoncelli alla Bergamasco, typical ravioli with meat and cheese stuffing. Wow, both were very tasty and were local specialties. We also tasted white and red local wines which were very good. To top this off we ordered the vanilla ice cream with balsamic vinegar and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was to eat.
