Reviewed 24 February 2012

the ambient is fantastic, the food excellent and the portion are hearty! Maura, the owner, is very charming, very warm, she has a great way of welcoming customers! And Chiara, the chef, knows how to convey the taste of real Italian food in each dish! i will certainly go back to have a great food there! Ossobuco was simple fantastic!

“Beautiful food, very friendly owners”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

When we arrived we got a bit of a fright as there was no english menu but one of the Owners explained every part of the menu to us. Gorgeous food a real insight into the real Italy. Beautiful local Prosecco that I will be trying to source here in Dublin. Seemed to be very busy with locals which is always a good sign. Would highly reccommend.

“Nice people, good food.”
Reviewed 3 August 2011

I was in Brescia for a few weeks on business and ate here several times. My co-worker said it was the best meal in Brescia and he might be right.
It's located in an odd spot not really near anything except the museum. On a couple late July evenings we were the only ones in the place.
The women who run the place are very friendly. One essentially speaks no English and the other speaks a little. No matter though as whatever we ordered was excellent.
The menu is small but they do have an English version.
I usually had a fish pasta dish that was great. I also recommend the panna cotta for dessert (one night they made it just for us!) as it was the best I had (and I tried a lot!).
Prices are reasonable and the place is very nice inside.
I definitely recommend visiting this restaurant if you find yourself in Brescia.

“Delicios food, friendly staff!”
Reviewed 24 October 2010

This little trattoria is managed by two friendly ladies. The place is situated near the museum. It is clean (only drawback is the italian style wc) and beautifully decorated. And: They REALLY can cook!

Make sure you try the homemade ravioli with pumpkin (that is our favourite). We tried several restaurants in Brescia, the al Fontanone was the best for us.
