Description: Porta Osio takes the name from a door in the old wall surrounding the city and conserve some walls embedded in the building. Forty seats to be cuddled in tranquillity. The restaurant has been standing out for the first -class choice of cold cuts and cheeses, first of all the Pata Negra, the real Iberian ham "de bellota" (acorn). Among the offers there are always first quality French oysters, Mazara del Vallo scampi and Sicilian red prawns, crudites that perfectly combine with the champagnes in the list. The selection of meats like ribs, Florentine T-Bone steaks and sliced beef always of important sizes served on a soapstone is excellent. The menu follows products seasonality.

I find it unbelievable that in one of the reviews below the diner said he left hungry. I had the foie gras with truffles and scallops for the antipasto course, then the ravioli filled with fish for the primi, followed by the beef and mushrooms for the secondo. Then strawberries with ricotta and cream. Everything was to the very highest standard and hand on heart it was the best Italian food I have ever tasted. And very filling.
Curious note- if you are as puzzled as I was as to the toilet flush mechanism, it is a black rubber button on the floor.

The area is a bit off center and not very picturesque but the restaurant is excellent. Fish and meat dishes are prepared perfectly and the waiter is a well-versed wine connoisseur. It's down to earth, great value for the money and we were the only tourists.

A great meal served by a friendly waiter who knows food and wine. We had a multiple course meal that was carefully prepared as my wife has multiple food allergies. Well worth the visit.

What a great evening we had! The highlight of our trip. The Porta Osio is a small place near the center of Bergamo. It has a small selection of slow food dishes and a wide selection of wines. We were received with a nice free amuse bouche and they offered us some special kids friendly dishes for our little ones. The pasta starters were incredible and the meat mains weren't also good though not as good as the starters. Deserts were yummy and the wine they recommended was mindblowing. The total was 160€ of which 60€ was the wine. Go there!

A very welcoming and enjoyable small restaurant where you eat amongs shelves of wines and cozy furniture that makes you feel immediately at home. Being also an enoteca the wine list was nicely varied. The food was delicious, professionally serviced but nevertheless very friendly staff too. Highly recommended.
