Vasco Da Gama

Full of character and warmth, this place has an extensive menu serving Brescian cuisine with an innovative twist. Vasco Da Gama has a nice glassed-in gazebo looking onto Via Beccaria: visit to have a relaxing evening. A real delight for all of those who are looking for the real Italian cuisine.


Brescian cuisine is well-known for its authenticity and its richness. Thanks to the city's history and the natural diversity of the surrounding area – rivers, lakes, plains, and mountains – the range of different local produce is huge: meat, fish, cheese, olive oil and of course wines from the famous Franciacorta region. Many of the popular dishes on offer have been eaten since the 15th century, such as grilled meats, rich meat stews, risotto, and polenta. The area north of the historic centre has a number of very cheap trattorie, popular with students and workers.
