Il Circolino di Città Alta

Description

Il Circolino di Città Alta is located in the historic complex of Sant'Agata, better known as the old prisons of Bergamo.

It is a welcoming place that offers quality service and genuine products from the territory and organic farming, to always ensure the freshest, seasonal and tasty products.

In the summer you can rest in the shade of the Canadian grapevine in the peaceful garden, while in winter you will be accommodated in the dining room under a splendid vault with 18th century frescoes.

The à la carte menu offers a wide choice of typical Bergamasco dishes, a pizzeria and work lunch menu, as well as interesting variations such as themed evenings, fish menus and the Florentine menu. 


Il Circolino is the historic headquarters of the Città Alta Cooperative, born as a meeting place and then became a real social enterprise with the aim of keeping the community united in the light of the new economic and social transformations. Il Circolino is recognised as an Aggregation Centre for Seniors, who can frequent without any obligation to consume in a climate of conviviality. The Cooperative is committed, with the profits made from the restaurant, to multi-sport activities, job placements, cultural events, and volunteering.
