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!

We visited a couple of times during our stay for a beer and also shared a plate of cooked meats- both very good in quality and quantity and good value. Not a place for a "destination meal" but if a quick snack is all you want its one of the best in locale

Had a seriously good Pasta with Ragu Cinghiale, accompanied by an own brewed beer. However the overall focus here is on the beer, but you could have something to eat as well

We were three people visiting the Città Alta. We seated at the terrace in the square. My friends asked for ravioli and I asked for a ham round panino. We also shared a mixed plate of prosciutto and cheese. Everything delicious, and with drinks included we paid less than 20€ per person. Beautiful lunch!

We stopped in here for lunch. The menu consisted primarily primi, panini and piadini. They also have what looks to be their own craft beer. Our girls had their gnocchi which were delicious. All in all a nice spot in a pretty square.
