Visited in July and had the most memorable meal I've had in years. Food all freshly prepared and cooked to order. Obviously much love and attention to detail involved, I chose the fillet steak and pepper sauce (fresh pepper sauce) The tenderness and taste were exquisite, I could find no fault at all. The menu is laden with choice and... More

Went for a first time to this restaurant. The outside is a bit old stylish, and the interior is 100% italian style from the eighties & nineties. Lots of different dishes available : pizza's, pasta's, meat, .. + and extensive wine card. Enjoyed the meal (pasta's) and the wine (Sauvignon)

Very nice dishes, superb wine, cosy, midprice. From pizza to perfect seafood cooked the Italian way. Served by the owner and his family.

I heard a lot about this one, so I was looking forward to a visit. You'll pay on average € 5 more for a pizza and the house speciality Osso Bucco is a staggering € 25. I've eaten a lot of pizza's and Osso Bucco in my life and do not mind paying more if this is reflected in the... More

It's very true. The Belgians know their food and Villa Borghese was a fine example of the care and pride in what they take in their food. On arrival we were given a lovely complimentary "amuse bouche" of cheese, salami and olives. The waiter was lovely and was asking us which part of the country we came from. The restaurant... More

When I choose a restaurant, I try to go for innovative cooking or for authentic cooking. Villa Borghese in Oostende is a nice experience for those seeking good Italian home food at a normal price. Just go for the friendly service and the good honest food. La bella Italia is waiting for you.

We found the welcome warm, service very good and the food was excellent and reasonably priced unlike several of the restaurants in Ostende. The steak (which was belgian) was the nicest I ever had. I would... More
