The place is amazingly beautiful (you can't tell from the outside) and the food was really good, but the service was a little bit arrogant.

From the outside when closed, you would never know about the beautiful courtyard dining. Service was wonderful, food very good - but the setting is magical. So is the bread so indulge.

We chose and booked this restaurant as it was only a few steps from our accommodation.
On arrival we were shown to our table in the covered terrace area (as opposed to the open courtyard area).
Nice linen tableware and outlook. Unfortunately the music was far, far too loud and we had to ask for it to be turned down. The speaker over our heads was turned off but another speaker was left on and it was still too loud. Guys, please take note that people like to sit and talk with pleasant background music. If they want to have music blasting they will go to a disco!
The food was ok. My rib steak was well cooked but if I’m paying 25 euro for a steak (with a few roasted potatoes) I’d prefer much less fat content!
My wife’s meal was pasta in lobster sauce and she enjoyed it.
We got up and left when the woman at the adjoining table started smoking.
When will the Italians, one of the founders of culture,learn that it is highly unpleasant and thoroughly uncivilised to eat dinner in the company of smokers, dogs and loud music.

From the outside, it's just a door in a blank wall on a boring street, but inside it is glorious -- with high ceilings, great outdoor dining if you prefer, and very nice furnishings and linens. The menu is extensive and features so many great dishes that it was hard to choose. We started by having two starters; fried zucchini flowers (we always look for these on the menu) and fried tiny fish (yes that's what it said on the menu). Both were delicious. We each felt like fish, so we both had the grilled Turbot (a wonderful fish that for some reason has almost completely disappeared from US menus). It was perfectly cooked. We took a bottle of Veneto Sauvignon Blanc. We blew our diet and each had a desert and an espresso. Total bill €160. Well worth it.

The service was attentive without being obtrusive.

Let's admit it. It's hard to go wrong in Italy when it comes to restaurants. But this one should be ranked near the very top in Brescia.

We came by chance- I called the restaurant "19" and they were closed, but they recommended the Classico.

It was outstanding. The 5 appetizers we tried were world-class, the wine selection was great, and the value was excellent. We averaged 55 Euro per person including wine and dessert- a very, very good value.

The venue is classic. Outdoor courtyard was beautiful. I felt like we were inserted into a venue from 200 years ago in terms of architecture.

We al agreed we would next time choose our hotel location around the location of this restaurant!
