Il Circolino is always a great place to be, even though I remember when the prices where much lower. It is a beautiful restaurant situated in the historic part of Bergamo and it serves typical food, locally sourced. On an impromptu visit to our friends in Bergamo, we found ourselves walking the old town (or Upper City as the locals... More

... although not necessarily in April! The food, however, was good: starters, pizza, pasta and salads. The wine was typical italian restaurant - just ok. Staff were fine and the value was good.

The food was great, wine was also great. This place was very crowded, mostly with locals, which I liked the most. It is a huge restaurant with excellent choice of food and wine. It is quite hidden in the city center, but once you get there, you won't regret.

Just had a meal here and it was very good. The staff were all attentive and friendly. The food was of a great standard and came in a timely manner. The views from the terrace are some of the best I have seen in the region. This place is situated down a little side street off the Main Street in... More

We would have never found this local and wonderful place but for our host's tip. Great value for money, especially if you want to run away from "places for tourists".

Just back from 5 weeks in Italy and this was one of my very favorites places to eat the entire trip. At lunch there and everything from the polenta to the charcuterie was delicious. And the outdoor garden was the perfect setting.

Big place, with lots of tables in couple of rooms - but almost all tables were taken in the middle of the week (so better reserve a table). Very nice food and good service. One strange thing about the place - no music to accompany your food. Strange doesn't mean bad, but surprising ;) Nice meat and good local ravioli-like... More
