Description: Monna Lisa grew out of a combination of numerous work and life experiences, in a family which has always worked in the restaurant business. The birth of a daughter... a passion for ancient and traditional art... Sicilian culture which integrates with the Italian character and internationalism of people who like to call themselves 'world citizens'...as reflected in the furnishings, in the wine and in their gastronomic choices. You are received into welcoming atmosphere in a quiet and evocative corner of the centre of Bergamo, where taste , art, culture and traditions combine to offer customers a unique and elegant, yet simple, experience. Everything works in a way to make the customer feel part of the family at Monna Lisa, with care taken not only to please the palate, but also the eyes and ears. The Staff You will find a spirit of sharing and a sense of belonging. The staff of the Monna Lisa are a family: they are an efficient, creative, attentive organisation, which draws on the wealth of experience of its members, who have an extensive experience in the restaurant business. Peoples, each one of integral importance, complete the customer experience from the moment you walk in the restaurant. The dishes on offer are the result of personal experimentation, developed in detail until they deserve a place on the menu. The creativity, the refinement and the management style adopted by staff make Monna Lisa unique of its kind, set apart from the rest. Art through simplicity What makes a dish a 'work of art'? What makes cookery a language? The simplicity of the ingredients, the creativity and passion of the cook : simplicity, high quality and beautiful presentation are three essential principles that guide the choice of the dishes and their creation. At Monna Lisa, the aesthetics and the culinary choices capture the essence of traditional Italian and international cuisine, in all its beauty, harmony and poetry. Seafood specialities, fresh pasta, renowned desserts, use of carefully selected, top quality products, attention to detail, customer care and the 'work of art' created in each dish. That's how something beautiful to look at is also delicious to taste.

Every time I visit Monna Lisa it's like flying to some top restaurant in New York city and this is a special and valuable thing for a restaurant in Bergamo. Don't get me wrong though, I don't mean that Monna Lisa is some trendy and "fake" place trying to imitate high rollers places, I believe that with its open, understated and well appointed atmosphere it's the place you want to go if you're looking for an elegant, intimate, fresh and contemporary experience. The owner is a Sicilian gentleman with a careful touch for the traditional Italian regional cuisine who's also open to International evening with tastes from worldwide. I recommend this place for family, business and couples, and yes the average price is in the high side but once in a while, when you're not in a budget, it's definitely worth the experience.
