Homemade Lasagna Al Forno at Café Borgia, Munster

Vanessa Renderman, (219) 933-3244

It's impossible to confuse the hill across the street from Cafe Borgia in Munster with the rolling countryside of Europe's boot.

But, the only view that matters is when the server clears the bread plate and sets a dish of hot Italian food in front of you.

Cafe Borgia, 10018 Calumet Ave., is one of the best-known Italian eateries in the region, and its homemade lasagna al forno is one of the reasons.

With alternating sheets of pasta, meat sauce and cheese that stretches without swallowing the portion whole, the $16 lasagna is a dish that will make other people at your table lean over and say, "I should've ordered that."

Served in a near-perfect square, it will look more like the Leaning Tower of Pisa after your dinner mates swipe forkfuls to get a taste.

If lasagna isn't your thing, the menu is loaded with other Italian options, from margherita pizza and fettuccine alfredo to grilled lamb chops and risotto roasted chicken.
