About
Al Borgo Italian Restaurant Bukit Timah's favorite has been serving its neighborhood for the past 8 years. We are proud to serve our customers with a big smile. We use only fresh ingredients to prepare and serve our tasty antipasti, home-style pasta dishes & Tuscan style charcoal-grilled meats. Some say we do have the Best Pizza in Singapore.

Authentic Italian food in a homely restaurant. Service from Daniel in particular was standout. We celebrated a birthday there, and they kindly accommodated with a candle and serving plates!

Small and cozy restaurant in a residential neighbourhood. The food was amazing and well prepared, with a big menu to pick from. The sevice was even better. Our waiter Aarun was really kind and made sure to give us suggestions about the food and wine....He was a gentleman.More

Good service in a rustic cosy restaurant. Their Grilled polpo was excellent! Prawns soup was delicious. Pasta carbonara with black truffles was too peppery, lasagna and Wagyu beef was good, but it was a very small serving though. Crab pasta was overly too spicy! Strange...that the waiter did not warn us about the spice level.More

Used to come here 7/8 years ago quite regularly and was good. Food was good and service was good, plus the Italian owner was very friendly. I think it must have changed management since then because this restaurant is naw a shadow of its former...self. Was staying for a month at the Alocassia apartments above restaurant and would probably have eaten there most evenings had the quality and service been the same as before. But unfortunately it wasn’t and was far from good. We ended up only eating there once, on our first evening. The pizza was very average, but nothing special. The staff not particularly friendly and seemed poorly trained. But hey, this is Singapore and after 27 years living here I was well used to that. But what was not acceptable was the attitude of the head chef/manager/owner? Not sure what he was. We complained about the starter “Mediterranean Salad” at $21 ++. Seemed expensive but thought okay since I knew (or at least thought) this was a good restaurant. What we got was few salad leaves, a few pieces of cucumber and a quartered tomato with some croutons. Nothing Mediterranean about that! Plus the tomato was totally tasteless and still slightly green. The menu stats “Roma” tomatoes. This was definitely no “Roma” tomato. So in total we paid $23 for that starter salad. When we mentioned this to the staff the Chef poked his head out of the kitchen window to tell us his tomatoes were Roma and that they had been imported from Italy! What did he think? That I was born yesterday? Total BS. His tomatoes were probably bought from Cold Storage next door! How can a restaurant get away with offering such a salad for that price! Even in Singapore! He is taking the p His loss because as I mentioned earlier, we would probably spent over a thousand dollars there in the month we were stayingMore

Time goes and the quality stays. The Chef Tiziano provides an impeccable cuisine; delicious pasta, pizza to die for, perfectly cooked meat and beautiful desserts too. Beautiful wine list with of course a serious selection of north Italian wines that will please any demanding customer....The place is off the beaten path and far from the touristic center, but hey, it is really worth going there. Good service from the staff, full of attention and courteous; this was a great experience, again. Looking forward to the next time.More

Corner seating, cosy, warm rustic feel. Attentive service staff. Kitchen visible, appears tidy and clean. Table neatly arranged. Cutlery clean, wine glass rim clean. In term of cleanliness 9/10. Ordered steak medium rare, succulent mouth watering. Juice dripping when chewing. Paired with red house pour...wine. Prefect. Vegetarian meals available as well. Creamy flavourful dishes. Pumpkin soup a teaser for the main course. Reasonable price for food quality and location.More

We moved into the area 6 weeks ago and kept saying that we must try out Al Borgo. We finally went last Friday and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Firstly, the staff are extremely friendly and attentive. The food is super tasty! My son loved his...lasagne and asked if he could go back the next day to have it again! A small, authentic Italian experience. We'll definitely be back to our new favourite local!More

Table booked for 8 pm. The Server was in a great hurry to take our Order. Hardly had we sat down and she asked us three times if we were ready to order. After ordering the Appetizers, she was in a rush to take the...order for Wine, when we told her that we had yet to decide. Finally, the Italian Manager/Owner came and served the Wine. Pleasant host. We were told that last order was at 9,15 pm. At 8,50 pm another Server asked if we wanted anything more. After ordering another Pizza again, we assumed that Desserts would be served even after the last order time. Quite normal in Singapore to keep Desserts options open after Last order timings. At 9,10 pm we asked for the Dessert Menu and the same Server said that the kitchen was closed. They could offer only Tirramisu and another item. But, nothing else - KITCHEN IS CLOSED. Pathetic behavior exhibited by uncaring staff of another nice and cosy ristotante. Unfortunate!More

Used to eat there allot in the restaurant but have not been in 2 years. Tried ordering in and food came ice cold and the pizza was so greasy it was not funny and the salami was also packed with oil. One piece of salami...came on the pizza I kid you not 3 inches round and 1.5 inches thick if not 2 inches. Just sloppy housekeeping. And order pork chop it came sliced which was nice idea it was okay but would never never go back. Maybe if he reopened the restaurant but even then? I think this place is historyMore

Friendly staff in a not particularly welcoming or stylish interior. Functional and practical, sure, but not more than that. Food was good, portions on the modest side of adequate. As a dessert fan I was a bit disappointed by the panna cotta: very very small....My wife had a nice tiramisu, though.More
