Every dish we ordered was good with the freshest ingredients used from seafood soup, pasta, pizza to steak, antipasti and a platter of desserts. Parma ham was excellent! Lava cake is one of the best!
Food was great. Ambience was wonderful. Dint have to wait very long for the food. Waiters are very nice. The lamb chop and pork sausages were the best.
Excellent food. Try the medium rare Bistekka. The pasta wrapped in paper is very good too. Ask the Manager to recommend some good red wine to go with the aromatic pizza. Appetizers you can try the tomato mozerrella with the green sauce.
Fantastic food, fantastic wine, fantastic service. Bistecca Fiorentina was excellent. A very authentic Fiorentine and Venetian menu which is rare for this part of the world.
Fabulous food, but not so great service. Felt like we were second class customers just because we said we weren't having any wine for the night - the waiter's smile immediately disappeared. We were quite a big party of 8, and shared a few starters/ dessert + had a main each. The starters came together, but the mains all came one by one. By the time the last main arrived almost everyone else had finished eating. When we queries about the last tardy main, the waiter merely shrugged his shoulders and said we're running a full house, the kitchen is busy (despite the back of his restaurant being completely empty). Another waiter later told us the 1st waiter forgot to post the order and apologised for it. Honesty would've been nice in this case, and the waiter who lied seemed like he was the one in charge of the place. Way to go in setting service standards.
Al Borgo is our favorite Italian Restaurant in Singapore: for the Essentials as well as for the daily menu, which always has something exciting an new on it. This time it's 'only' a 5 though, since the Bolognese sauce seemed to be a bit thinner than usual. The rest of the food was great as always.
Al Borgo is our favorite Italian Restaurant in Singapore! We are there on a regular basis - not only because the simple dishes are as excellent as the more refined ones - but also since we were very soon welcomed like family!
I've been to many Italian restaurants all around the island and no one can do pasta like Al Borgo, highly recommended! The portions are a good size and the flavour so spot on. I will definitely be back
Food was good and did not disappoint, as always (this was my 4th time here). Deserts were outstanding. Service was friendly and prompt. Thank you, Al Borgo.
We had seafood soup, pizza, sea bass pasta and tiramisu, each course was good. I seldom eat/see fresh fish, olive oil-based pasta around (although I've had it before, actually in the same restaurant), so was glad it was on the specials, it was delicious.
