Bergamo restaurants

Cuisine in Lombardy is not what you would think of as typically Italian. Popular dihses are based on grains, such as maize and rice (risotto is very popular), with rich meats and fats (think beef, pork, butter and lard). In fact, many local dishes do not include Italian favourites, such as tomatoes and olive oil. In this regard, Lombardy cuisine may be thought to have more in common with Austria and Central Europe than South Italy. That said, Lombardy cuisine is still full of variety and every city has its own specialities and Bergamo in particular has a focus on maize-based dishes, such as polenta.

As a popular holiday destination Bergamo has many restaurants that you can chose for your dining experience on your holiday in Bergamo. But you should be cautious to avoid the tourist traps that compromise quality and be sure you go to a restaurant that is going to give you the real Italian cuisine experience. Bergamo has many popular restaurants, so reservations are a must. The specialities of the resort include include polenta e uccelli (polenta served with bird meat), casoncelli (a type of stuffed pasta), polenta taragna (polenta mash flavoured with local cheese) and cuore di vitello alla bergamasca (veal heart cooked Bergamo style).
