WOOD FIRED PIZZA
Wood fired ovens have always been integral to our menu. Although artisan and far more complex, the resulting pizza is crisp and light with a wood fired toasty flavour.
Wood fired ovens run at temperatures in excess of 400 deg C. The naturally occurring convection draws moisture from the dough very quickly and the extreme heat traps it in the toppings.
The result is a crisp base and flavour sealed topping. This just can't be done in an electric oven!
Making traditional Italian pastas takes more than a recipe - it takes heart. From the way the tomatoes are crushed to the extra care we take in hand-selecting our herbs and cooking the sauces to bring out the perfect flavours entreated with aromas that will have your mouth watering!
In our kitchen, there is no compromise - there is simply nothing but the best.
FAMILY & FRIENDS
Whether in Sydney or Cape Town, Borruso's has always fostered a culture of generosity, openness and hospitality. This manifests in wonderful, caring staff; a warm and welcoming atmosphere; and an experience that strives to be better than expected.
Consistency and customer satisfaction are important to us. We have always believed that, whether getting a quick takeaway or dining in, it's about the whole experience - from beginning to end.
BORRUSO’S – WELCOME TO THE FAMILY
Borruso's Pizza & Pasta began as a tiny little take away shop in the suburbs of Cape Town in 1994. This grew into two large and very busy restaurants that are still crazy-busy today. When Borruso's founders Oscar, Jamie and Robyn moved to Australia, the cycle began again - a tiny little takeaway shop in Northbridge, a suburb of Sydney that has grown into a busy local restaurant.
Borruso's is a socially aware business that contributes to the local community as well as supporting its major charity, the Eniwe Children's Fund.

THE ONE-DOLLAR DIFFERENCE
The Borruso's team has a strong African heritage and is family oriented, both traditionally and in the modern sense of the word. For these reasons, we have chosen to support the Eniwe Children’s fund.
At some point in our lives, we all take family and food for granted. Eniwe supports children who have neither, by assisting AIDS orphaned children in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
$1 is added to every bill at Borruso’s as a donation to the Eniwe Children's Fund.
These $1 'drips' have filled many buckets of money that have been poured into providing solutions to reduce the collateral damage to AIDS orphans.
If you do not wish to have the dollar added to your bill, that's fine, we are happy to remove it!
If you are a restaurant and would like to help support the Eniwe Children's Fund in the same way, please go to the Eniwe site to find out more!
Every dollar makes a difference...
