Improve this listing
Ranked #117 of 1,460 restaurants in Almaty
Cuisines: Italian
Description: This is an authentic Italian restaurant in Almaty. Ingredients are flown in from Italy and elsewhere. The pastas are made on site and are exquisite. The service is impeccable. I had pappardelle with a porcini mushroom sauce that was rich and fabulous. My husband had a steak with a peppercorn curry sauce. Salad, two entrees, three glasses of Chianti, and two desserts cost $175.

They are good if you are not able to cook Italian and7or if you came back home late and you want to eat a good spaghetti dish, but you have no time to prepare them. Borgo Antico seemed to me to use 99% those kind... More

I think Borgo Antico offers nothing really special - food is OK, but not really delicious. I have heard a lot about this place that it was so good, but couple of times I had lunches and dinners - nothing special. And it's overpriced in my opinion, both food and wines.
