This little gem has been a personal favorite for many years.The general atmosphere, the excellent food, the efficient, personal service and friendly staff keep you coming back for more. The terrace is especially nice, well protected from any wind and ideal for groups. Personal favorites when it comes to the extensive menu are the chicken canneloni, monkfish pasta and the... More

This restaurant is not in the main tourist squares but is on the edge of town but can easily be walked to. Service was excellent,food was above average and the price very reasonable. We would definitely visit again.

The restaurant is located a bit aside of Lagos city center in a quiet public garden that is why the majority of visitors are local people not tourists. Cozy family atmosphere combined with delicious main course + desserts and attentive personnel.

Good, tasty Italian food. It is how it has to be: fresh and tasty with herbs and ingredients in the right amounts served in a nice and friendly atmosphere. Just outside the busy center in and worth visiting.

While on holiday in Lagos I visited Borsalino with my daughter and her family who have eaten there before and I was not disappointed. The food was gorgeous, I had the Chicken, Spinach and Cheese Canelloni with Garlic Bread and it was gorgeous. We sat outside on the terrace enjoying a lovely family meal. It has a very relaxed and...

What a find this restaurant is. The food is excellent and the service was most friendly and welcoming on both visits we made. The Tiramisu is the best ever, not too rich but they have got the balance just right. Can't recommend enough.

Nice restaurant a bit away from the old town tucked away by the smaller pingo doce. Nice choice of food at reasonable prices, three clean plates highlighted the quality of the food. The waiter who served us helped keep our 15 month year old daughter entertained with various toys and smiles Well worth looking up

We stumbled across this restaurant one night when we got lost returning to our apartment (!) and vowed to return having bed impressed with the look of the menu and the place itself. I'm not quite sure why some people have criticised the atmosphere because we found it very warm and friendly. We visited with our 3 month old sleeping... More

We go to Borsalinos at least once every time we visit Lagos. The staff are really friendly and the food is great. The pizzas are amongst the best I've ever had and the homemade desserts are divine. We've never had a bad meal here and I would thoroughly recommend it.
