“Working Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

The best in town for a high quality, fast, and very good working lunch: starter (pasta, etc), main (meat and 1 veg), coffee, 1/2 water and 1/2 wine €20.00 per two. And the portions are ideally measured to satisfy and not be heavy if you have to go back to work. Always full so you'a better nook. Larg car park nearby. Incredible value for money.

“Mille benne. Real italian atmosphere, food and people.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

The place inspires you and gives u the idea of what Italy is. The decoration shows you the idea of how old Bergamo was. Service and food excellent. Location is really good, near the train station.

“A pleasant surpise...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

After walking for more than 5 hours in the snow-covered Bergamo this little place seemed like a piece of heaven!!! The atmosphere was great, warm and authentic, full of locals. The owner knew everyone by their first name, a really good sign. The food was great (mainly pasta) but I would have changed for the delicious looking meet plates passing in front of me. I think this would make a great choice for meat lovers. Everything is reasonably priced and even the wine offered by glass is very good quality. Be mindful to arrive by 19.30 or you probably won't find a place to sit.

“The Best tartare in the world”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2012

A great place mainly attended by locals: this is a guarantee. Every thing here is extremely fresh and prepared at the moment. All dishes are prepared at the moment, a great selection of vegetables fresh and cooked are always available : this is the real plus. This definetly a meat restaurant, with local traditinal dishes. Here I have the best Tartare I have ever eaten so far. You should try once in your life. During summer time you should try the Parmiggiana. The owners are very friendly and attentive, the chef is great, the personnel friendly and customer priented.
At lunch time is crowded, you should book. A quaint Restaurant, with an old italian restaurant athmosphere (Osteria), difficult to find nowadays in Italy. Quality Price and sincere attention for the clients are the real plus plus: it' s worth to go. One recommendation : they should make free the available wifi

“Great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

The Osteria was recommended to us by the hotel. On our arrival, at 7PM the tables were empty but by the time we left it was full! The mixed meats and cheeses as a starter were delicious and generouse. Polenta is the regional dish and was served with every meal on the side. Although we didn't like the polenta it seemed popular with other diners. We had another traditional main course of veal fillets in lemon sauce and veal cutlet, both which was very tasty. The waitresses were very friendly and tried hard to explain the menu in English. The atmosphere was casual and happy with a mixture of locals & tourist diners. The bill for three courses for two people excluding wine was €59. It was an enjoyable first evening introduction to the people of Bergamo.
