Fabulous food and great atmosphere here. The food portions are tasty and generous and the menu is varied with lots to choose from. Great local wine too and good value for money.

The restaurant was packed when we arrived but we got a table after about ten minutes. We had pizzas, fish and the local dish, polenta with cheese and mushrooms. All washed down with a bottle of Chianti. Service was good, price was reasonable and the food tasty. Couldn't really ask for more.

We visit Da Franco every time we visit Bergamo. The food has always been superb. It is very Italian, the staff are friendly and efficient and we have recommended it to many friends who have been every bit as pleased as we have been. We have been visiting Franco's since 2007 and the standards have never changed. We have often... More

Located a minutes walk from the main Cathedral square & best described as excellent. Menu typically Italian but varied. Nothing to be critical of as the food, presentation, staff & ambience were all that one could wish for. Treated to a night both inside & out by an excellent Italian choir (so good we bought their CD). If in Bergamo... More

We had a lovely meal here- the ravioli bergamo style was the highlight! Nice atmosphere with other diners - although our waiter was not the friendliest ( he could hardly bring himself to speak!!). Nice location in the old town.

The restaurant in the Citta Alta square that had tables in the sun had no tables available, and probably was just a wine bar, so we found da Franco, a restaurant on the way back to the bus, inside. We had foiade pasta with fungi porcini and casoncelli, a little different from the previous night at La Cantina and not... More

Ate here only one time during our vacations in Bergamo. Very busy place at noon. Ordered a menu /21 Euro/: the lasagne was superb, the second not so: polenta was mediocre, the beef was tasteless. Husband ordered an ossobucco vitello (one of his favorite meals) - but this one was very though... I think, a pizza would have been a... More

Had lunch here after fighting our way through the Old Town and locating our B&B. It has inside and outside options. We had a seafood pizza with artichokes and olives.Nice bar and wine list. Good service, although a little slow as they were somewhat busy. Nice interior. Popular with locals. On the main drag through town (Via Colleen).
