“THE most enjoyable experience we had in EUROPE!”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I had heard of this restaurant thanks to,Trip Advisor but I wanted to make sure that we had a special time so I called the owner and told him how important this was to us......when we walked in we didn't even have to say our name (probably because we were the only party of 5 at 7pm) they greeted us at the door like family...From the moment we walked in, we felt as if we had known these owners for decades. Absolutely the most enjoyable dinner of our entire two week trip. The owners and our waiter sat down at our table & brought different italian drinks, various dishes and tastings and they were that way with everyone in the restaurant. It's like you get great food and a family style floorshow at the same time....we had a blast!!! At the end of the night they sent us on our way with a bottle of Averna-Maro Giliano because they just thought we would enjoy it. If your ever in Vienna you have to,check this place out! Unless you are a stick in the mud, I guarantee you will not be disappointed!!!!

“Truly excellent”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Food and service were excellent. The dining room is very pleasant and the diners have plenty of space. We ate at several Italian restaurants in the area and although we found other good ones as well, this is the clear choice and the one we'll head for immediately next time we're in Vienna. We ordered fish and vegetarian dishes.

“Very good Italian Restaurant at the right price”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

All good, from food to service, good ambient, and priced for what you get. The waiters were very personable, Italians of course, the ambient is quite, not a trap for tourist, the menu with good food choices, the wine list is simple but complete. Price is not cheap, but aligned to what you would pay in a good Italian restaurant in Italy. Close to the subway station and the center for a walk after dinner.

“An excellent Italian restaurant in Vienna”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Not particularly far from my hotel and given the strong rating on Trip Advisor, I decided to check out Al Borga. Wonderfully attentive and indulgent staff, and the owner went out of his way to make me feel like a valued customer. Both the salad and the entree were quite good, though the pasta portion was a bit on the small side. Serving of the coffee was a bit delayed as the server had to mention to the young lady tending bar that I wanted a coffee. Wound up getting an espresso instead. Despite this small snafu, I would heartily recommend. You won't be disappointed. Relatively good value for the money and ambiance quite nice, though still have a hard time adjusting to the policy of restaurants permitting smoking inside here in Vienna. Bon appetite!
