The restaurant Il Borgo Antico was built in the ruins of an old monastery. The room comes with a beautiful vaulted ceiling, made of sandstone rock, the atmosphere is very warm and welcoming. In our restaurant you will enjoy the best of the seafoods and meat from the local tradition. We offer fresh pasta made in house, and home made desserts too. Excellent wine cellar is emphasizing the local product but without neglecting national and international wines and champagnes. We have air-conditioned rooms ideal for meetings and ceremonies. Dogs are welcome (if well behaved). We look forward to your visit. Greetings, Il Borgo Antico team

We go to Alghero every year on holiday but had never tried this restaurant. The hotel we were staying in recommended it and the food was just out of this world.

Then everything just stopped, we waited over an hour for the maincourse, normal stuff in a small menu. Nonoe notized us, noone said anything. Everyone was just disappeared. I guess they had more important customers to... More

Small dishes and unpersonal service in the center of allghero, its better to dine around old town to avoid places like this. When dining here after reccomendation we started the meal with antipasti, then we had to wait long over one hour for the main dish. The waiters (and obviously the chefs) where not sufficient to serve on time. Also... More

Following a recommendation from our hotel, we had dinner at Borgo Antico. Food was excellent and great value for money. The service was slowish but that was not a big problem.

The restaurant was ok, clean, happy and quick service (which is rare in most Italian restaurants). Mussel soup starter was good. But the main course was horrible. We ordered fried tuna. It was totally ruined by topping it with sesame seeds - which were burned. Ever tasted?? It's like a smoked cat's fur, needed a couple beers to get rid... More

We (party of 3) found this place on tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. We had different courses of fish and even though the serving was not as we expected, we liked it. The starter with meet and chees was something special and I recommend it. Maybe the best serving this vacation
