We stopped here for lunch while visiting Città Bassa in Bergamo. They have outdoor seating in the Summer and we had a delightful light lunch outside. We ordered panini sandwiches, which were delicious. We got good food and good service. Definitely recommend this place.

A very elegant cafe with a fantastic range of cakes .all too calorific for us but we did manage an ice-cream sat in elegant surroundings and friendly service. It was very popular around lunch time so the elegant Italian office workers must know something
