Restaurant details
Reviewed 14 August 2017

We were lucky enough to rent a villa at the base of which is the Acqua Borra restaurant. We went there at least twice during our two-week stay.An absolute highlight were the stuffed zucchini blossoms in a light tempura batter -- absolutely wonderful. The pizza and pasta dishes were also delicious. The waitstaff spoke very good English and the setting was perfect.

We received the hint from the hotel concierge. We arrived for the sunset and the view was wonderful. The beautiful view (which was already making it worthwhile) was complemented by the wonderful meal we had. Italian tapas for starters, all fresh and delicious; a classic chianti to drink; and for the main course a ravioli with pecorino, sausage and trufle sauce (Just perfect), my husband had a filet accompanied by spinach and potato which was also perfect. In addition, Ariana provided us with an excellent service. In resume, a sensational evening. Worth the visit. The only thing we lacked was an extra day to go back and eat the pizza (present at all the other tables in the restaurant).

We went to Aqua Borra as our Italian friends love it and eat there often. We had lovely meals together but decided to go one evening and it was a disaster.
We waited 1 hour and twenty minutes for a fish anti pasta and we only got a tiny sea food salad having waited all that time.
The service was awful and so slow.
The couple next door to us with a child left as we did, we cancelled the rest of the meal.
This was MidJune.
We shall try again??

We ate here the evening after the gran fondo strade bianche and were amazed at the treatment we received. A tuscan starter to kick off followed by two second dishes and then desert and coffee to finish off. Good meat and a great choice of wine are 2 of the reasons we will certainly return to this restaurant next year. The caramel cheesecake is maybe the reason i shall return with the family before next year.
Thanks again to all the pleasant staff who served us.

Brought our 7 year old and 11year old and waiters were overly accomodatin, despite a prix fixe menu they made whatever the kids wanted. Their valentines dinner was delightful, best night in Italy thus far.
