This is my favourite place: the location, the atmosphere, the staff, the food. All these things contribute to make a lunch here a kind of unique experience. I really love the great attention to details and the perfection of different taste combination. Great dessert, excellent winery, awesome view. You can really enjoy the oldest part of Bergamo. Well done!

I had to postpone my first arrangement to the next day. The responsible has been receptive and very nice. The restaurant and its terrace is an enchantment. The view over the city from wonderful. The menu is very interesting and the plates are perfectly decorated, beautiful and very tasteful. It is the place to eat in Bergamo.

My husband and I dined in this restaurant this week. We dined here because we could not get a table at the restaurant that we normally eat at because it was full. I am so glad that we did eat here, because the food is fantastic. We had to wait for a table, however the gentleman that we spoke to... More

There are only two restaurants outside the St. Vigilio furnicular station, both of which provide splendid views. This restaurant, which is the first one on the left hand side, should better be avoided, though. For lunch, they offer a limited choice of so-called menus only, which cost between 20-35 Euros. The cheapest menu (for 20-23 Euro) includes one tiny and... More

The meal was wonderful - the best risotto I've ever had. We had a beautifully refreshing Hugo Spritz with some olives and bread etc, it was a wonderful setting at sunset with great friends and a great view!

Absolutely top class restaurant with magnificent view and mouth watering dishes. The service from the staff is just top notch. Get here with car, there is parking for the guest, or walk or use the funicular. Enjoy!
