About Borrello

A major favourite among those looking to enjoy a meal out in town centre, Borrello is an Italian restaurant in Sale with an enviable location and a powerful handle on what it takes to treat diners to elegant European cuisine with a distinct Mediterranean emphasis. The restaurant is as central as can be, located on School Road, just up from the canal and bike path, opposite Sale Town Hall and The Square Shopping Centre, meaning a booking is very much advised whether you drop by for lunch, dinner, or simply to sample what some are calling the best spare ribs in the southern reaches of Manchester! Two- and three-course early bird menus (available Mon days to Thursdays 4pm to 7pm, until 6pm on Saturdays and between 2pm and 6pm on Sundays) are one way to get acquainted, otherwise dive into the refined a la carte menu.

Fantastic food, very busy even on a Monday evening! It took a bit of time between courses but I think that is because we are just used to being quite rushed in most restaurants and this was the more traditional way of enjoying a meal. Would definitely go again.

Exceptional restaurant. Food very fresh and delicious. Staff very accommodating and helpful and unlike some restaurants you felt under no pressure to rush and leave the restaurant. An excellent evening.

We love Borrello's - the food is amazing, the service wonderful & the atmosphere is great!! The menu is so much more varied than the usual Italian restaurants and is not over- priced. The early diner menu is excellent too! Well done, Borrello's!

The restaurant Borrello is absolutely fantastic. The food was so tasty and potion sizes good . We would definitely go again. However next time I will book directly with the restaurant as despite booking it on line through Quandoo and receiving a confirmation they did not have our booking. Thank goodness they found us a table.

I booked for 5 people, the staff were lovely and friendly. We chose off the early bird menu, however the 'Special Garlic Bread' was not special at all 3 of us ordered and all found it to be tasteless and very dry not a trace of garlic could be tasted and you definitely could not smell it, it was mentioned to the staff as they collected the plates that still had 80% of the bread untouched but it was not really acknowledged. I asked for a little extra Garlic in my spaghetti, I received almost a full bulb of chopped uncooked garlic which ruined the dish!! the other 4 mains were lovely I must add. This is just a bit of helpful feedback not a public slaying as Borello's on the whole is a lovely place to eat.

Very busy saturday( perhaps too many bookings & too many tables crammed in) 90 minute wait between arriving & service of main course.Food good quality though.Downside was asking for two Italian wines Montepulciano & Verdicchio only to be told by the man acting as wine waiter that they didn't have them & to be upsold two bottles of raissac vin de pays doc at £22.95 each..Not wishing to spoil the evening for my wife & friends I waited until the end of the meal to complain to the manager..He listened politely & suggested he had received a similar complaint..He apologised & offered us free coffee & liquers which we accepted..Not sure I'd go back though to be honest which is a bit sad because we are frequent diners in Sale

This was our third visit over the past three months. As always we were impressed by the attentive ,friendly service coupled with excellent food at a very reasonable price. I would have no hesitation in recommending Borrellos to anyone searching for a good value and quality Italian restaurant in the Sale area.

The most excellent friendly staff you could expect to meet especially Danillo, Jimmy and Anna. We go to Borello once a week and the food is always impeccable. This time we asked for fillet steak with blue cheese sauce as a main course (it is sometimes a special) and no issue whatsoever. The steaks are absolutely fantastic. Tender, cooked to perfection and always cooked exactly how you like them. We would highly recommend this restaurant for the food, ambience and overall fantastic time you will have.

A very drunken group came in and sat at the table next to us. The men in the group were very loud and constantly swearing. I wasn't impressed that the staff allowed this behaviour,. The food was OK, it was presented well but there was no WOW factor to the taste. I'm surprised that this is the number 1 restaurant in Sale. There is another Italian restaurant in sale (Linguine) which is much better. Would not return to Borrello.

The restaurant was lovely great service lovely food and friendly staff. Unfortunately my booking was never on the system or made with the restaurant despite me using Quandoo to make the reservation and get confirmation email of the booking. When I arrived at the restaurant there was no table for me. The staff felt really bad about it and did their best to accommodate me at a later time than planned. I wont trust online booking again.

Excellent birthday evening at Borello. Staff very attentive & food was amazing. 8 people in total & all courses served at exactly same time. Staff really friendly & funny. One of my party had bought me flowers & the staff kindly offered to put them in water until we were ready to leave. Even the chef came out to meet us before we left. Great experience & will definitely be returning very soon.

We had a really good time here we were a party of 8. The food was very good and piping hot! also the service was friendly. I actually received the wrong meal and they did offer to change it, however I didn't really want to eat on my own as everyone else had started their meals, with a bit of persuasion they did knock the price of my meal off the bill at the end so all good. The coffee machine had broken too so we couldn't have a coffee at the end. Overall though we enjoyed our evening and I would definitely return again for a meal

Food here is fabulous. Very attentive service by staff. Relaxed atmosphere. If you like fish this is your ideal place as its best i have ever had. Recommend sea bass, mussels, monk fish. Wine is good and price average. Pasta is top quality and the steaks ! Beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Go now !

Absolutely fabulous. I brought my sister and her husband who are real foodies. They were amazed at the beautiful food and the service and ambience at this restaurant. He declared it to be one of the finest meals he's ever had. I will certainly go again and am already recommending people to go there.

We booked a table for seven on Bank Holiday Monday. We all agreed that this was the best meal we had for a long time. At about 8 pm we were the only clients left in the restaurant. The service was impeccable - it was a great night out.

Food is always delicious (best Italian around in my opinion), staff great and service was good even though it was full with Xmas parties. We just wish they could sort the acoustics out as it can be unbearably loud and we have to shout to be heard across a table of 4 people.

Had a reservation for 7pm but had a call from the restaurant at 6.30 saying the table would be late. Very considerate. Welcome was warm, the waitress was friendly and the food was excellent. We would go again, and invite the family.

First time we have been, the food was excellent and so was the service. We sat at the rear of the restaurant and we found the noise level to be very high, i would recommend sitting as near to the front as possible. We will be returning in the near future as overall the experience was good.

Super service and the food is amazing. I have tried all the restaurants in Sale and this is my favourite - the food is exceptional. Try the scallops for starters and the steak for the main. It's wonderful.

Authentic Italian experience - all staff friendly and attentive. Our garlic bread was undercooked but we still ate it ! Mussel starter was very pleasant and we'll seasoned and the grilled seabass was expertly presented at our table. A very pleasant meal on a busy Saturday night in the restaraunt.
