Definitely worth rounding a couple of corners in the historical city center, when one finds a beautiful piazza with amazing local specialities. Sardinian pastas, catch of the day and fried fish and frutti di mare are to reccomend. So good food and not pricey.

Borgo Antico is in a small square, a couple of streets back from the seafront. It has a very nice canopy in the square and looks as though it may be a bit upmarket. In truth, it is priced very closely to other restaurants in town but the service and attention to detail do give you the impression of somewhere... More

We had dinner at this fantastic restaurant. We sat outside but unfortunately there were only two other tables occupied so the atmosphere was not great. The staff were very welcoming and we were shown the various catches of the day and decided to go for the fish cooked in a salt crust which was fantastic. We started with a shared... More

We had booked a table the day before and because of the possibility of a rain shower we chose to eat inside. It is beautiful inside with domed ceilings and chandeliers. We chose a terrific red wine and some sparkling water. We had already seen that there was a rabbit dish on the menu which we could not resist. For... More

We dined outside on a Monday evening in early June - so, there were only 3 other tables booked. But this did not dint our pleasure. The staff were charming, every course was a delight - cooked with imagination and flair. We had a delicate cheese flan (soufflé style) with pear sauce, spaghetti with clams and battarga (smoked toe) and... More

The fresh fish platter was a great experience . The fish was fresh from the day and you could tell. The waiters spoke perfect English and were very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed the experience thoroughly and would strongly recommend to English couples.

I work in travel and decided to arrange a welcome dinner for a group of thirty people in Borgo Antico.

Based on previous reviews we were expecting great things but unfortunately our experience was so-so. It could be that they were having an off day but our dishes were all sadly average. Our waiter was really friendly and translated the menu for us happily. My concern came early on when an amuse bouche of egg yolk (possibly cured?) on crostini... More

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.

Description
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
