This is our second visit for dinner at Borgo as we stay at La Cuccagna just up the road.
After our first visit on our honeymoon I was completely blown away with the food, wine & the way in which things were executed (I am an aspiring cook!) We couldn't wait to go back & see Riccardo & Marilisa as well as experience the beautiful food that Borgo serves with such care, consideration & passion!
I was a little nervous as last year was so fantastico I was almost prepared to be disappointed, however I need not have worried as Borgo was once again taste bud blowing as well as beautiful, intimate & extremely special! This is by far my favourite restaurant on the planet & all the guests we met who were staying at the venue could not praise it enough!
I was extremely touched that Marilisa made her apologies for not being able to see me when my Husband dropped my parents off for their evening of alone time, and yet when we went she was there & made a huge fuss of us both & could even remember the conversation we had last year whilst sitting outside!
Riccardo was extremely attentive explaining to me how the food was prepared in detail without being intrusive whatsoever, you want to hear him speak about the food & the venue as he truly loves what they do & it is obvious in every way!
There was a new waitress this year called Emmanuella who was great fun & who took my Husband's sense of fun & naughtiness in great spirits, laughed &joked & put him in his place much to my amusement!
I can not recommend this place enough, it is a little bit special & it shows in the grounds, the food, the people & the attention to every detail!
I can't imagine Borgo getting any better as perfection is difficult to beat but I know that next year I will be writing yet another review to tell you how absolutely wonderful it is again!!
Thank you Riccardo & Marilisa xxxxxx
