This is a great place to dine. Make sure to see the extraordinary wine cellar while you are there! Fairly expensive but worth every euro. Enjoy!

We arrived in Bergamo hungry, but it was late for lunch and too early for dinner. Because it was a Sunday, though, Il Pianone was serving afternoon dinners to lots of happy local families. We were in luck. The restaurant entryway is lined with huge pots of hydrangeas, a fitting introduction to the lovely dining room that opens to a... More

I ordered a salad that was supposed to be luke-warm. It had a lot of fresh vegetables, but since a part of them were hot all of the salad got hot and lost its crunchyness. Not bad for a restaurant alltogether, the wine was ok and such, but very expensive for what it is. Rather loud seating and not so... More

We went here after a recommendation, and decided to walk up to the restaurant from the old town. It was not too bad of a walk - about 15 minutes. We were so surprised when we came there. The views were amazing! Could only imagine a summer evening there. The scenery is worth the extra buck - most definitely. We... More

From the welcome glass of prosecco, the lovely "amuse bouche" (all included in the "coperto" with excellent breads) through to imaginative desserts, this is a top-notch restaurant, and certainly the best meal we had in Bergamo. We found every course delicious, and we couldn't fault a thing. Particular mention goes to the chestnut crepes filled with pear and ricotta -... More

We ate here when staying at La Valletta.The food was incredible with well presented, fresh food that doesn't lose its character or authenticity like some places do.Stay exceptionally attentive and had a very relaxed atmosphere. Would reccomend getting the bus to it or a short walk out of bergamo.
