Guess who's bringing dinner
The best restuarants become delivery
We have reached day forty-five of quarantine and the new normal has become routine. Having cleaned the entire house, rearranged our wardrobes, and cooked for endless days and nights, we are in dire need of the odd treat!
We're still not allowed to dine out but here's a tip for eating something different for a change. Enjoy a slap-up lunch or dinner prepared by one of the restaurants from our selection:
The Civico17 bento boxes are inspired by a Japanese tradition: the art of packing food into boxes. There are three different menus available: one for carnivores, one for pescatarians and one for raw-food lovers (delivery at weekends only, call 035571123 for reservations).
In collaboration with Bolle Restaurant, Al Carroponte combines gourmet dishes with simpler options that can all be accompanied with an excellent bottle of wine (delivery at weekends only, call +39 3398794351 for reservations).
Degusto birra&cucina provides an original pub menu that will whisk you from Spain with a Spanish omelette to France with a Croque Monsieur or even as far as America with a classic hamburger (delivery available all week, WhatsApp +39 3405482656 for reservations).
The sophisticated menu at N.O.I. offers an explosion of perfectly balanced contrasting and harmonious flavours (delivery at weekends only, WhatsApp +393463250047 for reservations).
Osteria Tre Gobbi offers traditional Bergamo cuisine as well as a wider selection of regional dishes (delivery available all week, call 035243405 for reservations).
At Morso, the pizza is prepared to perfection with 100% Italian wheat flour and natural ingredients. The menu combines classic pizzas with gourmet options (delivery available all week, call +39 3662487995 for reservations).
Lostricheria, a little part of France in Bergamo, delights us with its selection of oysters, and raw and cooked fish dishes (delivery at weekends only, call 035246512 for reservations).
Polisena L’Altro agriturism combines traditional dishes with a fresh and particularly attentive focus on seasonal ingredients (delivery at weekends only, within 20 km from Pontida, call 035795841 for reservations).
Enjoy a traditional menu at Trattoria Visconti, where fresh pasta dishes are the main event, such as Nonna Ida’s unmissable casoncelli (delivery available all week, within 20 km from Ambivere, WhatsApp 035908153 for reservations).
The kitchen at Burro Restaurant blends the owner's Sardinian origins with local tradition, creating exciting modern dishes (delivery available all week, call 035510841 or WhatsApp +39 13218479 for reservations).
