The Kitchen

The menu is certainly a good reason to come back again to Villa Borghese because the kitchen consists of real Italians with a heart for the Italian cuisine. And that you will taste in their food. Villa Borghese know exactly where to get the best fish of high quality. They have their own address in Naples for the most delicious burrata and use the ultimate recipe for their fresh pastas. Everything that a successful Italian needs to attract his customers, they have it. I was aloud to sneak into their kitchen. 


The food

We started with  a glass processo and a tasty antipasti di Italy. Then they surprised us with bottle of Chardonnay, fruity and refined with a homemade ravioli with swordfish, prawns and mussels in seafood sauce. After a while they served us a grilled seabass. Fantastic! We enjoyed the fish and wine. Then the dessert arrived. A souflé of chocolate and a tiramisu. Again, everything was homemade. Pictures can hardly imitate it.

The Service

As I have mentioned before, the staff of Villa Borghese consists of Italian people. You will know that. In the service, the atmosphere and the food. It is Italian food at a high level and the employees know everything about it. They are friendly and helpful. I am grateful for the good service.
