Squaremeal Review of Al Borgo Ristorante ?

Al Borgo Ristorante closed on 12/15

Just off Teddington’s main drag, this intimate Italian is well worth a short detour. The home-style cooking is peppered with strong flavours – as evidenced by a robust smoked-duck pancetta served sweet & sour onions, radish & watercress; or grilled calamari, here boosted by pungent pink pepper. A gentler dish of spinach gnocchi with fontina & Italian sausage packs a punch in other ways: the richness of the sauce making the effort to tackle lamb cutlets with potato rösti (let alone white-chocolate fondant with hazelnut ice cream) all but useless. The cooking’s of a competent standard & food is served with a smile by the omnipresent owners Marco & Nicola. Al Borgo is an easy restaurant to like & has already achieved quite a following of locals.

A truly local restaurant with it's own quirks and charms, whilst the restaurant has not been super busy on either of our trips the enjoyment of the meal has not been diminished. The food variety and quality is superb and the wine selection and recommendation of the highest of quality. With so many restaurants falling back on a formulaic approach to their offering Al Borgo knows what it is and is happy in it's own skin…something that should be applauded especially given the current economic climate...

My partner and I visited al borgo on a Friday night, it was pretty empty for 8pm, and we were maybe the 3rd table seated. The whole evening was poor to say the least, by the end of it we left feeling disappointed and ripped off, we will not be returning and we will not be recommending. My complaints are – when seating, the menu was almost waved in my face as the waiter stood near by, not allowing us to get settled we asked for disarono, we were given amerto My partner ask for no ice in her...

Extremely glad to have a new Italian restaurant in the area; particularly of this high standard . Celebrated my birthday with friends – this was our first dinner there; we will all definitely be going back. Elegant without being stuffy – perfect Italian-style white table cloths, welcoming hosts Authentic, quality food. Considering there are so in many Italian restaurants in London, the menu had virtually all new dishes for me. The proprietor (Marco) suggested our wine: delicious yet reasonably...
