The delicious reproduction of polenta e uccelli (polenta and birds) certainly makes for a sweet treat, and torta Donizetti (Donizetti cake) or torta di Treviglio (Treviglio cake), typical of the area of the Po plain, are also popular desserts in Bergamo city. Worthwhile tasting in the valleys are the tasty biscotti di San Pellegrino (San Pellegrino biscuits).
