“Lively nice quality establishment, easy going - Dolce vita fuori d'Italia”
Reviewed December 25, 2013

We were here with friends with whom we'd been in Firence (Florence) and apart from the excellent wines (remember - Cusumano is from Sicily and not from Sardegna as you know now CARO Carlo Borelli - who admited I was the first to notice). We love the Cusumano wines, so if they are on the list at least a bottle is enjoyed. The restaurant is easy going, with live music the evening we were here and the food can be shared like in Italy and was really tasty. Bravo to Carlo and his team for making our evening special. If you like high quality food in relaxed surroundings and are not in Italy (but in WIEN), but long for Excellent Italian food then go to the Al Borgo. Mille Grazie e buon 2014 a tutti!!!

“Loved everything about this place.”
Reviewed December 8, 2013 via mobile

We went here for our thanksgiving dinner. It was delicious. They brought us an antipasto plate. The pasta was great. The service was so friendly and attentive. We did a shot with the owner before we left. It was great. Would definitely go back.

“My new dining room in Vienna”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

Being a Londoner who loves Italy I am glad to have found my "little Italy" for my Vienna leisure or business trips. This is one of those places where I was not sure if I should write a review as you'd like to keep it as your secret. Well, the number of good reviews here shows I am not the only one who might think so!
Have a good look in advance where it is located.. it took me some time to find it (even tough it enjoys a location in the city center). Once you found it expect a comfortable atmosphere, a great host with a very charming and humorous team, fantastic food and a very good wine selection. My wife and I felt like regulars even though it was our first visit. As for the food, just have a look at the few impressions attached - they should be self-explanatory.
We have some great Italian restaurants back in London, too (just talking about those managed by Italian families). Nowhere have we felt so much like being in Italy like in this place in Vienna. I promise you, you will enjoy it.

“Lovely Italian in the centre of Vienna”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Restaurant was very busy on a Wednesday night and unfortunately there was a mix up with our booking. Apologies were given along with a couple of glasses of prossecco which we sat at the bar and drank till our table was ready. Food and wine was very good, and the service was very friendly and jovial.

“disappointing flavours”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

The homemade duck pate with thinly sliced veal lacked flavour - and some crispy bread with it would have helped. The wild boar was stringy and lacked the depth of flavour shown when I had the same dish in Florence. The panna cotta with raspberry coulis was well executed and tasted great.
