“First visit to Al Borgo for work night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Came to Al Borgo for work night out. Easily one of the best Italian meals i've had in a restaurant. Amazing quality food and value for money!! Special thanks to Claudia for putting up with our bizarre mix and match dessert requests!!

“Yummy food, fab service, great setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 January 2014

Our family booked Al Borgo for an early dinner on New Year's Eve and dined on their 'Festive Menu'.

The food, service and setting were all fantastic and offered great value. I honestly couldn't fault it and am looking forward to returning in the near future.

Well worth a visit!

“Hidden treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Right next to a chippy (run by the same people), this place looks less classy than it is.

There is the usual selection of pizzas and pastas, but the other italian classics are the real treat.
This is all authetic rustic grup, with little pretension but a lot of skill. The steaks are done to perfection.

Excellent value for money, good selection of italian wines, and a superbly friendly staff makes this a fantastic place. Well worth the bustrip out of central Edinburgh.

“Above average Italian restaurant, well above!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

Dine here often and it never fails to please. All the usual Italian favourites plus specials and all are generously proportioned and well presented. But it is the atmosphere that makes a difference - staff, several being family members, are quite excellent. Always a delight to eat here! A huge asset to the village. Highly recommended!
