About Borsalino

Dear diners, Borsalino will be closed for refurbishment work on Sunday 22nd October. We then reopen on Friday 27th October at 5pm for the evening service.

Please also be aware that tables booked online are available for two hours only.

The default destination for those looking to dine Italian in Peterculter, Borsalino has serious pedigree. Established in 1976 and now under second-generation owner Luca Balsamo and his team (including renowned tenor Salvatore), the longevity of Borsalino is the result of a commitment to authentic Italian cuisine and hospitality. So much so that you’ll find people eschewing central Aberdeen eateries in order to take the short trip out to Peterculter to indulge in the restaurant’s signature dishes and be treated to the friendliest service. Besides the main dining room, the Borsalino North Deeside Road address houses a large bar area that can seat up to 35 people for a private dining experience.

More about Borsalino, Aberdeen

When a restaurant has been in the hands of the same family for over thirty years, there is a reason why it’s stood the test of time. And when the same restaurant, open since 1976, is only going from strength to strength, then it simply must be visited. This is the situation at Peterculter restaurant Borsalino, just thirty minutes out of Aberdeen, who have a stellar reputation as serving impeccable Italian cuisine alongside wonderful service, always with a smile.

The menu at Borsalino is an absolute delight with a selection of antipasti, pizza, pasta and secondi mains that will certainly whet your appetite. Try, for example, some starters to share like the bruschetta on crusty Italian bread, affettato misto of cured meat from northern Italy with mozzarella and focaccia or the classic caprese salad. For the main, we love Franco’s homemade lasagna with rich bolognese sauce, vitello limone of escalopes of veal in white wine, with lemon, gratin potatoes and seasonal vegetables or one of the traditional Italian-style pizzas cooked to perfection. You’ll find Borsalino along North Deeside Road in Peterculter out of Aberdeen, where Luca, Franco and the team will blow you away. Bookings are essential.

The food was absolutely delicious. Had a lovely meal and service was great. We went to the Borsalino bottle shop afterwards to use a voucher we had recieved as a gift and there was a wide selection of beers, wines and gins. Being gin drinkers, it was great to see a stockists of all the local gins and the staff having a good knowledge of the gins they stocked. Would definitely recommend to come here. A local gem!

Friendly, helpful service. Delicious food, served hot, freshly cooked and well presented. Not overly expensive, for the quality of food being served. We have been before and will be back again!
