A gem of a little trattoria in a quiet little corner on Via dei Musei, right next to the Capitolium Roman Temple. Though fairly small in size, it feels homely and cosy, Limited number of tables, so if planning to have dinner on Friday or Saturday reservations are recommended. Also open for Sunday lunch. Food is generally excellent. Everyone gets... More

I had a Sunday lunch recently at this lovely place. My gnocchi with spek (a Nothern Italy cured ham) and gorgonzola came in abundance and were very tasty and good. All egg pasta is home made. The place is unpretentious and nice. Reservation is recommended as there are limited seats.

Wonderful food. very fresh and local - a little farther down the Via Musei from the plaza and right before the ruins. The others reported correctly - and the Proseco is to be tried very tight bubbles wonderful flavor

I just returned fom lunch there. Food is carefully prepared and matching wines are suggested. Very good selection of regional bottles (Piedmont, Garda) available. The Vitello Tonnato with Tomato salad was divine and so were homemade ravioli with pumpkin. Prices are excellent for the quality offered. I am sorry not to be in Brescia more often but hope that this... More

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!

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... More

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... More
