Al Borgo’s three locations across Singapore are testament to how well-regarded it is among those who know Italian food. Indeed, Al Borgo is an Italian restaurant – it’s sometimes referred to as Little Napoli – offering homemade dishes served with quintessential Italian hospitality in the traditional trattoria way. You’ll find this particular Al Borgo restaurant on Namly Avenue in Bukit Timah, not too far off the main Bukit Timah Road. It’s cosy and comfortable and certain Tuscan-style dishes are too good to miss, the sea bass baked in sea salt being just one. Treat yourself and reserve a table now.
Service was a bit slipshod, though I would chalk that up to an early lunch, and the fact that they opened just as I reached (at 1130). I'm guessing they were short handed. Pizzas were really good - nice and soft, almost Neapolitan style, but i think most people would have liked it the way it was served. I would have appreciated something more true to the original, but it was still very nice and tasty, and filling! The coffee was a bit watered down, and if not for that an a bit of the tardy service (staff didn't really take initiative or know what to do, often looking lost), I would have given a 5 or even 5.5 (if decimal places were allowed). Ambience is amazing if you get a window seat, though half of them face the carpark.
Great food especially the lagsagne and wide range of pizzas especially the smoked salmon pizza. Not to mention, pleasant and soothing ambience- nestled away in a quiet and verdant neighbourhood away from the hustle and bustle.
Newly opened branch that's a little out of the way if you don't drive. Perfect if you don't like it crowded. The food was tasty. Pizza and lasagna stood out.
