“Sensational food off the beaten track”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2011

As soon as we arrived (we had booked) and saw all the tables were reserved I felt quietly confident that the restaurant would be in my husband's word's "A proper place!" We were not wrong, from the plate of antipasti to the delicious and obviously local pasta dishes to the local excellent wine we were not disappointed. The staff were delightful and helpful and the presence of the restaurant cat Mario who wandered unperturbed added to the thoroughly enjoyable experience.

“Lots of atmosphere, great food and excellant service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2011

A great local traditional meal, in a wonderful old building setting, served by a professional who was humorus and friendly. Highly recommend it. Visit Donazetti's home and then enjoy a great lunch or dinner.

“The Best Meal(s) of our entire Italian Trip. Period.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2010

Sometimes one is fortunate enought o encounter a modest yet special family-run eatery where the excellence of the food is matched by the service AND also the incredible view. This is such a place. We ate here twice and had wonderful meals. Bring your camera and if you want, you can buy some of their unique, monastery-made herbal firewater.

“Special experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2009

This is the best place to go in order to find at the same time delicious local food and romantic atmosphere.
This restaurant is located in the high part of Bergamo, in the middle of ancient houses, with a spectacular view over the city. Fourniture, design and decor are aimed to recreate a special, characteristic ambiance. The menu offers a list of local dishes so you can taste the very cuisine from Bergamo.
Prices are reasonable, especially if you consider the touristic location. and they are lower than comparable restaurant in the area.
