“Not really impressed”
Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

I was staying at the Best Western and searched for a restaurant nearby. This one was only a couple minutes walk away and had some good reviews so I went for it. It was ok in all respects but not that special in any. The meat on a pine stick was quite tasty but a gimmick really. Don't order anything seafood because it was frozen an not good. Wine was OK and we had a white at 19E. and a red at only 11E. Both OK. Total bill 86 E. not including tip which I thought was not too crazy but on the expensive side for what it was. Service was good and they can speak English. If you want a typical Italian restaurant this is not one.

“Go there and enjoy!”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

We enjoyed our recent visit to this lovely alpine styled lodge in the centre of Bergamo. We arrived without reservation on a busy Saturday night and we accommodated as it seemed were all callers however they managed it.. Service was a tad slow as the restaurant filled to capacity but remained friendly and informative. The menu is meat heavy , particularly cured meats ( which are not to be missed) try the antipasti misti for a good selection. We particularly enjoyed the meat with the olives and marscapone cheese watch out for it! This was followed by a beef dish and a vegetarian pasta special which wAs the tastiest in the whole of Italy. The wine list is comprehensive and although the pricing is fair it does add up.. All in all a lovely experience .. Go there and enjoy!

“Bloody Amazing!”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 via mobile

It was so umm... Delicious. Very friendly staff, nice distincive design, great food (I had beef on pine stick). It was more than what I've expected. BTW: Bergamo is much more beautiful than Milan. I visited this restaurant at 12/4/13.

“Hunting cabin”
Reviewed 17 April 2013

Open on Sunday night so that is a huge plus. Hearty food in a setting reminding me of a hunting cabin.
