There was a long line so it must be good right? Definitely! Lots of pizza to choose from. Thick, flaky crust. I had the spinach and buffalo mozzarella drizzled with olive oil. They sell by weight. Seating upstairs. Line moves slowly because you order, they give you a receipt, you pay and then return to pick up after it's been... More

We saw the pizzas and the sweets from the window and decided to give a try. We were lost at the beginning because there was such a big variety of pizzas, focaccias and pastries that we wanted to taste them all. You can order as big piece as you wish - they will weigh it and cut it with (you... More

Nicely displayed, varied and fresh food to be eaten inside in a chill out atmosphere or for a takeaway. A very friendly place, worth a stop when you're exploring the old town of bergamo.

I have been an "afecionada" of this place for around 10 years - it's a must to stop there whenever I go to Bergamo alta. The pizza is juicy and crispy at the same time and the topping is always fresh and rich in taste. The only little negative note is the cashier: since I started going there she has... More

This cozy bakery/ bistro offers a cozy interior with all typical sweets and bakery stuff of this rich region. I felt in love in its regional dessert called La polentina nad bread stuffed with olives. In addition you can take a seat upstairs and have a rest for while after walking through the old town.

The display is legendary, with all kinds of pizza temptingly shown. The prizes are affordable and the quality is amazing. You can order a take-away piece of pizza- you wait for them to heat it and then enjoy the amazing taste.
