Dinner at Antico Beccaria, near our Hotel Vittoria. We shared a two-Iberico hams starter, then both had smoked tuna with sage and rosemary, which was a bowl with many rosemary branches on which were individual pieces of almost raw tuna slices with a light crumb crust. Two dolces, pistacchio and nocciola semifreddo. It was all excellent, and the atmosphere was... More

Very nice and cozy atmosphere, friendly staff (however not all of them speak English). Great risottos and wines. Possibly one of the best choices for a dinner in Brescia.

We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience, friendly staff, great service, and the good food. The tables are elegantly set. The truffle risotto was heavenly, and paired nicely with the local Franciacorta wine. Our meal was rather pricey for lunch, but we realize we were also paying for the atmosphere and the friendly, attentive wait staff. I would return again.

A very pretty place for a meal. Food is generally good. Service is fine. It was convenient for us as it was just across our hotel. They were generous with the bread and the meringue which came after the meal. Overall a pleasant experience.

I recently had dinner at Antico Beccaria while in Brescia on a business trip. From the exterior, I was attracted to the overall, cozy atmosphere seen through the windows lining Via Beccaria. I was told that the restaurant and the via it is located on were named after a famous Italian lawyer. I was warmly welcomed by the hostess and... More

I was there for lunch this weekend and it was a nice experience. The place is really nice decorated and the staff was really kind. The food was also very good, with home-made pasta, good local products and good desserts. The only this is that it was really full and they took some time between the different courses. But it...

This restaurant majors on presentation, apparently in the hope it will cover the lacklustre food. The staff give the impression we are there for their benefit rather than the other way round. Serving pasta dishes wrapped in aluminium foil inside a perfectly good plate is bizarre only topped by serving fillet of beef with porcini mushrooms wrapped in raw red... More

Perfect restaurant for a romantic meal in the old city portion of Brescia. My girlfriend and I were looking for a quiet restaurant where we could be among the locals and try some of the region's food, and this fit the bill perfectly. We had a selection of local mountain cheeses with honey and mostarda, a bottle of groppello (a... More

The ambience is great with service to match! The prices of food in Brescia are very reasonable and although this restaurant priced their item about 1-2€ higher, it has ambience and service that are worth much more. Food presentation is great and tastes above average. I always have my meals here during business trips.

The restaurant is located in a pedestrian area near the Duomo and is made of glass. Good prices, get food and service. I really like the cingale pappardelle (wild boar). All dishes were arranged on the plate with style. If you can, reserve as it is popular.
