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.

Beautiful location, amazing pizza (and incredibly cheap), great service and Aperol spritz! What more could you ask for! Wonderful town, well worth a visit if passing through and definitely stop here for pizza!

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.

This restaurant opens for lunch and serves amazing pizza. You can choose between a table in the restaurant itself or on the shaded terrace overlooking the old town and its iconic bridge. It was summer so we chose the terrace. It takes a while to get your meal as they are well patronised by locals and tourists. Genuine Italian pizza... More

This was our first visit to Dolceaqua & Il Borgo. Reservations are a must as this is a very popular lunch destination. Several German tourist buses dropped off many travelers for lunch. There were 3 in our party and we started with a pizza diavola that we shared. It came out very fast and was delicious. 2 of us ordered... More
