I really like this cozy café a lot and would like to go back! They had many vegetarian choices which were very tasty and interesting -- not typical combinations. For example, my lunch special was a lentil pancake beside a sort of ratatouille [but better] with an excellent salad. Also, they have an excellent selection of good loose teas which... More

This is a very pretty little café. The food is of great quality but it's a bit on the pricey side. If you're happy to wait a little while for service and splash out, it's well worth a visit! My advice is to sit downstairs where the tables are a little further apart!

Have been there 2 weeks ago with a friend. The place is simple but nice. Food is a mix organic and bio cuisine. The result is excellent! Planning to go back at Sweet Irene as soon I visit Bergamo again. Really, this small restaurant would not get a Michelin star, but the food is really great.

we had a nice apero at the outdoor tabels, good food for a good value. I would think this is more a lunch/drinks place instead of a dinner

My friend and I stopped here for refreshments during our time in Bergamo. There was a 'special' offer of coffee + muffin for €3. We ordered two of these, but my companion prefers tea. So we had one tea, one coffee and two muffins. Total cost €9! The muffins were just average, a bit on the rubbery side. The decor... More

Dry choclate banana cake and sub-par cheesecake and not that cheap made this visit rather disappointing since the reviews here suggest otherwise... Nice, cute atmosphere thoug but definately not worth the money...
