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 had a very enjoyable and romantic meal here. The fish was perfectly cooked, definitely recommend the swordfish. The waiter was extremely helpful and gave great recommendations throughout. This was by far the best meal we had during our stay at alghero.

A very good restaurant for pasta and fish. Friendly service (which is not always found in Alghero) and reasonably priced. Also great atmosphere, particularly if you decide to sit outside in the square. We went for dinner on a windy day, but as this place is sheltered we were able to enjoy the moonlit evening.

We stayed for 10 nights in Alghero, tried a lot of restaurants, and for me this one stood out as being the best. Food and service could not be faulted, the staff are professional, courteous, hard working and friendly, they make you feel special as their guests. All of the food we tasted was top quality and beautifully presented. The... More

By far the best place we ate in Alghero. The food is good (I had a great frito misto, mussels, some kind of shellfish-packed seafood soup that was delicious, the local fried cheese pie dessert, a so-so deconstructed tiramisu), and I was recommended an excellent local white wine. It's in a small pretty square, a bit harder to find for... More

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. Even now, six weeks later, my mouth is watering just thinking about the tastes. It really is one of the BEST restaurants in the town. Give it a go... More
