Tuna wasn't the freshest, otherwise the food was excellent. The server brought the main dish before we finished the starters. The views were sprctscular!

“Highlight of our trip”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

Reservations were made by our B&B owners, and necessary looking at the fully booked restaurant on a Friday night. It starts with a charming ride on the funicolar cable to the top of the hill. Breathtaking views over lower Bergamo from the outside area of the restaurant. We both had the Menu di degustazione, 5-course menu, one had the sea (fish, shrimp) menu and othe other the land (meat) menu. Wine list reads like a short novel, but waiters are happy to help out. Raw tuna on a bed of ricotta and home made casoncelli were outstanding. Make sure you save some room for dessert, the home made tiramisu is heaven. If you are into cigars, then have a go at the excellent collection of Cuban and Dominican top brands.
Just over 100 euros for two 5-course meals, a bottle of very good Pinot Noir and coffee with complimentary fruit and sweets.Only minus, the speed of serving was a bit too fast, we had to indicate a short break after 3rd course to let the food 'sink in'.

Nice detail: free cable ride tickets back to Bergamo Citta Alta, handy when you have run out of cash for the vending machine. Last one leaves just before 1 AM so no need to rush home.

“Views views and more views”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

In Summer you can't fail to see this Baretto if you visit San Vigilio. It is the place with the tables outside and the happy people! Food and wine both excellent and, unusually in Italy, it is possible to leave a table here feeling virtuous! We ordered light Pasta dishes, skipped the bread and chose a wonderful fruit plate for dessert. It's possible to just pop in for a glass of wine, a beer or a coffee during off peak times.
