From the outside, the restaurant looks like someone's house (it is, the family owning and operating the restaurant lives there) and you may wonder whether you're indeed in the right place. But as soon as you get into the small dining room, which has been recently redecorated in a nice contemporary, minimalistic style, with well spaced and roomy tables, you will immediately get in the right mood for a fantastic dining experience.

The menu is seasonal and mostly rooted in the regional tradition but all the dishes have been creatively reinvented (and sometimes lightened, like the "light cassoeula," the typical winter dish made of pork and savoy cabbage) to satisfy even the pickiest modern gourmets. Everything we tried was outstanding. The wine list is very good and contains many Italian wines, including a good selection of local options, and few international choices, mostly from France. The floor staff, captained by the chef's wife, is attentive and professional, with the right amount of local warmth.

The restaurant is open only during the weekend, starting on Friday evening, and on many Italian holidays, so be sure to book in advance by phone. A few outdoor tables are available during the warmer seasons. A traditional Italian meal (Appetizer, First Course, Second Course, and Dessert) will cost about 75 Euros; wines start at 15 Euros. A great value for the quality and the presentation.

Amazing mushroom salad, fantastic pumpkin, cheese, and shrimps risotto. Good service. Family or business, it's definitely worth a visit

It was literally a surprise. An excellent restaurant in Selvino. Great service, extremely kind and careful of all details. Every dish was tasty and creative at the same time. Truly recommended.

Casoncelli alla bergamasca were the best ones we have tried in our lives.
Guancia di maiale was top notch. Tagliata di tonno was great but not incredible. Wine list has some interesting wines, especially in the franciacorta section.

Amuse-bouche was subpar (too much fresh cheese).

Fully worth the trip from Bergamo. Highly recommended

Honestly, this is a Michelin star in waiting! Superb food, beautiful location, excellent service! Interesting combinations, yummy treats - visit before the restaurant becomes too well known and the prices go up!
