Whether it's the pizza or ravioli, or the other Italian home-made delicacies, you'd better come early and hungry. It's packed with locals and day trippers from France and well worth the journey. Don't miss tasting the local wine, Rossese.

Wow this was our first meal in dolceacqua and it didn't disappoint. The portions were huge so don't over order. Great value for money too. If you fancy going here please book in advance as there was always a que to get a table.

We are going to Dolceaqua at least 2-3 times per year from Nice to buy fantastic olive oil straight from the barrel and to visit Il Borgo for its pizza. My wife being great fan of Italian pizza prefers this one over any other restaurants in the area and even above the pizza I am making in my wooden fire... More

More up market than neighbouring La Rampa but worth it if you feel like something more than a pizza. We sampled the anti pasta, a different and delicious combination, the tuna special and sea bass , all were delicious as was the local wine.
