I looked online and saw positive reviews regarding the pizza and pasta so I thought I'd give Borruso's a try. Ordered online for myself and 2 others. Wow, what a dissapointment. The Cabanara was so bland. I had to put my own salt on it....More

The food was good in this warm, family-feel restaurant, and the fire in the fireplace next to our table just added something extra to the romantic feel. The pizza is better sit-down than take-away.
