Best beer selection in the Citta Alta area by a mile. Friendly staff and a good vibe. Tasty meat & cheese plates also.

Really nice beer, had a variety of stouts, IPA, amber ale and pales. Very cosy, has a nice atmosphere, definitely would recommend as a stop before getting a meal.

Our favourite place in Bergamo, despite narrowness, due to excellent beer with well matched food. This is a place for beer lovers, definitely for a BEER and lunch, not for lunch without a beer.

My friend and I came here for lunch on the 2nd. We were seated pretty quickly and the menu looked great, from what we could see the other guests were enjoying their meals.

We had a range of pastas which seemed to have been homemade and pre-prepared. It's only a small kitchen so the dishes were reheated. The pasta was tasty though. My husband was happy as he loves craft beer but there was no alternative drink for me unfortunately as they don't serve wine or even diet coke.

Had a great evening meal accompanied by a fine selection of Italian craft beers. Yes fellow British beer lovers the Italians do produce some really good beer and its not all blond. The atmosphere is informal as is the food, but excellent, no pretensions here.

We went for a late lunch. The tables outside were mostly full and so we had to wait a while for the 1 waitress to get to us for our order. When we did get our food it was delicious. I had the Casoncelli Bergamaschi a Modo Nostro which was a ravioli and was to die for. My wife went... More

Visited for an early evening beer and felt like some nibbles. What came was a Hugh portion of assorted cooked meats and cheeses. Was for two more than enough for four! Excellent local brew made this a good start to our visit. Would recommend to any visitor to the old town.

Thats a nice place to have a beer! The quality of food was good but what I liked most is the vibe and the youth character of the place!
