Description: Situated on the eighth floor of Hotel Excelsior San Marco, entirely glassed-in and facing toward Bergamo Alta, the Roof Garden Restaurant takes the guests to a surreal and emotional dimension. The refined environment, the high level Grand Carte menu and the priceless view of the entire city, make the Roof Garden Restaurant an exceptional place for business lunches, A La Carte dinners, company events, Gala dinners, buffets on the breath-taking terrace and fairy-tale wedding receptions. Inspired by the restaurants with a view in the big European cities, the project of the Roof Garden Restaurant was strongly desired to give form to a place that could be in harmony with the city of Bergamo, taking advantage of the mutating colors and the play of lights that only a panorama like that of Citta Alta is able to offer, without forgetting tradition and history. A sensation of extreme lightness and transparency, an example of cosmopolitan mentality that recommends Bergamo as a destination of international interest, thanks to its vast historical, artistic and architectural heritage, together with a gastronomic patrimony of absolute value. Roof Garden Restaurant is open from Monday to Saturday all days, from 19:45 to 22:00. Sunday closed; additional closing may happen for Italian bank holidays and for private reservation. The Roof Garden Restaurant provides exclusively restaurant services. No Bar service is available.

The views are exceptional and the staff very good but the food left a great deal to be desired. The gourmet menu was not cheap and having eaten out all over the world we expected a great deal more. A lot of the combinations in the dishes just did not work

Very good food, nice view over Citta Alta (the old town). Situated on the top of Hotel Excelsior San Marco. The seafood menu of 3 dishes can be recommanded!

“Roof Garden Restaurant”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

The best thing about the restaurant was the lovely view of the old city. The staff were attentive and helpful. There was a large group there and the chef was too busy with them. We have dined at Lorenzo in Forte Dei Marmi and at Four Seasons Hotel in Florence and all we can remember is the gastronomique experience. We will skip the Roof Garden Restaurant next time.

“Did not eat here!”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Stayed in the San Marco and had a wee look but it is so expensive.
Would be nice if they had a "bar area" where tourists could enjoy the views while enjoying a nice cold drink, I think they could make it more accessible to people who don't want to spend 200 Euros on a meal !
