I had lunch at Cafe Borgia which is located in Munster, IN and felt compelled to let people know that there is a good place for Italian in NW Indiana. The Times, which is the newspaper for the area has no discernment whatsoever in their restaurant reviews and according to them every single restaurant in the area is great.
Cafe Borgia is a Roman restaurant and has small cold plate appetizers as well as hot. We really enjoyed the artichokes Roman style and some whole wheat gnocchi. We had lasagna and pork scallopine limone for entrees and the word that kept popping into my mind was balanced. The lasagna appeared to have homemade noodles which is always a plus in my book.The staff was friendly and if they did not know an answer, asked, and returned quickly. The inside is pleasant and I loved the light fixtures which look like red Chihuly stars-they said they got a lot of comments on the fixtures and that they are from a small Italian company. The location is on Calumet Ave. about 7 minutes south of I 94.
