The casual wood-swathed trattoria is built around a kitchen with an exposed brick-framed peep window so aromas swirl freely round the laidback dining setting.

One of the best pizzas in Singapore

Having read some of the past reviews, I must say times must have changed.
I'll use my first review to say, as a European, this is the est pizza I've had in Singapore.

I was impressed.
Couldnt comment on the other dishes however, as we just went in to try two pizzas.

5 of us decided to go al borgo for dinner on 22.11.2013. al borgo charges S$30 for corkage but if you buy a bottle then the second bottle is free corkage. 1 friend picked up a jacob creek moscato & he orderd an italian red feudi di san gregorio. 

i ordered a few of our favourite dishes.

portobello mushrooms with crabmeat in pink sauce was an excellent starter. portobello was nicely grilled & flavourful & the crab meat pink sauce was excellent, pretty to look at & tasty. 

parma ham pizza was good too. parma ham was a favourite for many of us (a friend commented it was not so dry when served on a warm pizza than as antipasti though personally i liked the latter more). it made for a fine combination of dishes for the evening though i had no special thing for pizza. 

we ordered 2 servings of seafood squid ink tagliatele to share among 5pax. they were very good as usual, quite a bit of prawns & squid & the nice flavour of creamy squid ink went very well with the pasta. 

next was the florentine steak (we waited quite a while for this item as the restaurant was quite full). this was a 700g t-bone steak (new york strip on 1 side & tenderloin on the other). it was S$60 before, now S$75, just as the squid ink was S$22 before & now S$25.

it came together with very nice grilled potatoes & mesclun salad & a dip of balsamic vinegar & olive oil (maybe with the grilled juices). it was still good though for this night, the meat was a bit tougher than what we had here many times before. being greedy, i ordered a second serving, and though we polished up everything, i thought afterwards i would have done better ordering the S$38 250g ribeye steak instead. 

a friend brought a mille crepe, the new hit in town. it was like kueh lapis, with many thin layers of pastry interleaved with cream & custard, very labour intensive to make & obviously very costly. it was not too sweet. 

the service at al borgo was super! nicola, the restaurant manager (he took over from luigi) was friendly, chatty & constantly at our table & mimo (the chef) came many times & took several photos with us including with his “brother”, my friend who had the same hairdo as mimo. he even recommended the wine. they also arranged for parking redemption for my 2 friends (never knew they had that, so i parked my car along the road with single yellow line though as there were quite a bit of construction going on, i had to park my car a bit further up the road). & the servers, kumar & 2 ladies, were also very friendly, attentive fun & cheerful (an important trait in service business). my wife was commenting on the generation change in the image of chefs. they used to be haughty & temperamental, scowling in their kitchen fiefdom, now they are reinventing to be like gracious, warm, inviting hosts.

the evening (& the whatsapp messages afterwards) was filled with conversation, laughter & fun.

Had dinner at Al Borgo. Menu was good and the Specials were great. Had Wagu Beef (500g) shared between 3 people. Portions are fantastic. Wine selections, though limited to Italian wines, are of excellent quality and reasonably priced. Served with nice balsamic dressing. Desserts are to die for - especially the chocolate lava cake and tiramisu.

Service crew was very attentive and caring. Will definitely come back again with more friends and family.
