We have been to this place several times when visiting Bergamo. It has been taken over but the older gentlemen with fantastic customer skills is still there - he is really a lovely person so helpful with the wines and food and such a hard worker.

We met the new owner's father who was very nice to us and we had a lovely conversation about the UK carpet industry ..sounds boring I know but this chap made our evening special as he was so knowledgeable and amusing.

We cannot fault this place, we have always had lovely food at fair prices and wine by the glass is excellent and fair in price ...

We have also popped in for a cheese and wine 'nibble' while on our travels and the variety of cheese is exceptional.

On one of our visits we were even given a dessert free of charge as it was Christmas which was a lovely touch and appreciated by us. We didn't want a dessert as we were full after our lunch but it went down a treat as it was so light ...

We would definately recommend this place. Great location with very helpful and friendly staff who obviously appreciate their customers. Well Done!

There was happy hour when we eat there and it was fantastic! For 8 euro you can eat little disses and have a drink! The food was great we loved it! Specially the lasagna tartufo! And the wine was also great! The owner and his wife were really kind! We will come back for it!

Went there twice for lunch. Small kitchen so menu is limited mainly to salads and platters of local cheese and meat with a few cooked dishes also available. Generous portions, well prepared. Very good local wines at reasonable prices. Friendly and efficient service. Would go back.

Selected the day's special (Piatto unico) and it was terrible.
Hopefully we were unlucky, but I would suggest walking by.

This is a lovely little deli located in the main thoroughfare of the old town (Via Gombita.) They have lovely lunches: salads and sandwiches or panini made with their extensive range of local produce. They stock local wine, hams, salamis and cheeses. Of course they also have pastries, cakes and good coffee.

The owners are very friendly and generous and they gave us complimentary little tasters of desserts. I think i went there 3 times for lunch over the course of my 6 day stay in Bergamo and this charming little deli has stayed with me for a long time afterward.
