This place is popular for a reason. Friendly staff, free food taster and every bite is delicious. It is impossible to leave empty handed.

And on the 8th day God made a sandwich stand called Borderi.... and he saw that it was good. I would have paid 4 times the price and felt well served. Best sadwich I've ever had.

In the market if Ortigia you MUST stop at Caseificio Borderi! They put on a show of making sandwiches and they are very generous with offering everyone a taste of their home made cheeses and delicious sandwiches! The food is so fresh and delicious!

It is not a restaurant, more like a deli. For our first time there, they prepared a sample platter of their meats and cheeses with some bread which we sat and ate like a meal. It was filling! On my second visit i ordered the... More
