Borgo Trattoria delights

Recently good friends of ours joined my husband and I to indulge in the Italian food flavors at Borgo Trattoria. This new and stylish restaurant in Calgary draws in crowds by the many due to its niche appeal of offering espresso in the morning with freshly made in-house pastries, lunch and dinner, then late night cicheti (appetizers) where you can indulge in dolci (dessert) or small bites. Borgo offers modern Italian preparations served in a sharable style. Not only is the contemporary ambiance enjoyable, the food was good! One of our memorable dishes was the Eggplant Fritta which are bite sized eggplant dipped into fennel yogurt.
