We've been going to Borruso's in Kenilworth for years. For us it's a strictly pizza and pasta restaurant. It takes no reservations and is strictly first come first served, you can bring a bottle of your own wine without corkage being charged. Service is sharp by very friendly and joyous staff. The pizzas are the BEST, we break away from... More

Somewhat hidden away this eatery does not take bookings and is always busy in a good way - buzzy vibe. Approaching 1 million pizzas served and still turning out great pizzas. You can take your own wine and besides sitting inside there is a covered outside area and uncovered - great in good weather. Good value for money and this... More

If you're looking for the best pizza in town, look no further. Juicy, fresh & tasty! They are generally very busy, so get in early to secure your seat.

Very nice setting & relaxed atmosphere. No reservations policy, so get there early. Pizzas are stunning, & so are the pastas. Generous portions served. Service is friendly and warm. Tip - check menu or ask for specials, as it's not always displayed.

It has taken our sixth visit to this area to discover this hidden gem of a restaurant. Excellent pizzas and pasta frequented mainly by locals! Also good for takeaways should they be needed. How have we missed it?

Kind of tucked away into a corner and maybe at first glance from outside you would wonder past, but don't as it's well worth popping in for fabulous pizza and friendly service. This place has been consistently good over years. The pizza is great, traditional style real pizza and the menu offers a lot of choice not way too many... More

Really busy neighbourhood pizzeria, absolutely heaving both times we visited. Good choice of pizzas and pasta, pizzas nice size and lasagna was heavy of sauce and light on pasta (which I liked). Wine list good, service attentive and overall good value.

Dined here with family and friends on evening of 2 January when the restaurant was packed and the service was too slow. However, having eaten here a couple of times before, I know the slow (although very friendly and apologetic) service was an aberration! The wood-fired pizzas are fantastic; a huge range on offer plus the ability to create your... More

You will not be disappointed by the pizzas or pastas at Borussos. A long time local favourite, it's very casual and service great. We get there early, usually at 6pm as it gets really busy and they don't take bookings from my recollection. You can sit indoors or out.
