Caffé del Tasso

Description

In the Upper Town since 1476.

Originally named ‘Locanda delle due spade – Locanda of the two swords’, because of the duels held here, it then became Torquato Tasso Caffè e Bottiglieria in 1681, when Bergamo placed the statue of Torquato Tasso, the famous poet of the liberated Jerusalem and descendent of the noble Brembana Valley family, right next to the restaurant.

Caffè del Tasso is a certainty in Bergamo. The centuries go by, the styles change but he remains and here passes history, not even the Austrian cannonade in 1849 could interrupt this great tradition of goodness.

It has always been a crossroads of illustrious Italian and international characters. From Nobel prize winners such as John Nash to Hollywood and Cinecittà stars such as Charlton Heston and Ugo Tognazzi, from poets to writers, from sportsmen to singers... Sit at one of the tables, look at their photographs hanging on the walls and let your imagination take you on a journey through time and space!

You can enter every hour of the day: for breakfast, aperitifs, but also for lunches and dinners, thanks to the excellent restaurant serving the typical dishes from Bergamo together with more contemporary dishes based on raw materials from Slowfood.

But that’s not all, they offer a renowned selection of the best wines, able to satisfy the most demanding palates.

If you want to get to know the history of Bergamo, start your visit here. The Menalli family will be happy to tell you the secrets that have passed by one of the oldest "historical establishments of Italy"!


Caffè del Tasso is part of the " Locali Storici d’Italia - Historical Establishments of Italy", along with other places that have been reviving tradition for centuries.
