The elegant lakeside town of Sarnico, which makes a nice day trip from Bergamo, has a number of places to eat and for good food at modest prices the Ristorante Pizzeria Anphora is worth a visit.
The restaurant is situated in the heart of the town in Piazza XX Settembre, which is on the edge of the lake (pictured above).
Steps lead up from the square to the restaurant, which has tables outside in the summer. Inside, it is smart and modern and is furnished with some antique pieces and bric-a-brac.
Ristorante Pizzeria Anphora specialises in fish and seafood dishes but also offers some traditional Lombardian recipes. It is closed on Mondays.
