Una cena a Borgo San Jacopo è un'esperienza gastronomica da fare almeno una volta nella vita. Sarà difficile districarsi tra la vista mozzafiato sull'Arno e Ponte Vecchio e i piatti con cui lo chef Claudio Mengoni vi accoglierà. Ma la sua rilettura moderna della cucina italiana, custodita da una location esclusiva e raffinata, è un'occasione gastronomica rara. Rara e unica, come le sale del ristorante da cui si gode un scorcio esclusivo su Firenze e una terrazza con pochissimi coperti quasi sospesa sull'acqua. La cucina che propone a Borgo San Jacopo è la sintesi di un percorso lungo, fatto di studio, creatività e tecnica nella gestione delle materie prime.

    If you are a foodie you must try Borgo San Jacopo. Each dish is immaculately plated and a feast for the eyes. Once on the palate the taste is sublime. The seasonal vegetables are an impressive start to a meal that crescendoed to veal cheeks that melted in your mouth. Service is attentive and courteous. Wine selection is plentiful with a sommelier who provided helpful suggestions. A delightful dining experience.

    Great service and atmosphere. Nice setting on the bank of the Arno. Excellent wine pairings. The food was good but overpriced for the quality. Great night out though.

    Very gifted cook with a great sense of balance between innovation and tradition. Especially good the risotto with sea urchin and also the smoked red mullet. The food was perfect, so we were wondering, why the restaurant only had 1 star. But the wine menu was much more mixed: really excellent champagne and white wine at the one hand, but an unexciting brunello and rose at the other. The service was at the beginning very good (friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic about their house and prompt), but then we had one 15-20 mins break between courses. So all in all the great cuisine was slightly impaired by the unevenness of the wine selection and one fault in the service. All in all I can recommend the restaurant wholeheartedly.

    The restaurant food is nice, but maybe we are Asian some of the staff are reluctant to explain the dishes. I always think that for fine dining, the description of dishes part plays a really important role. Sad it wasn’t as my expectation.

    Excellent meal! We had from the regular menu the oxtail tortelli which is superb, the spaghetti a la chitarra, the pig porcetta and the fassona beef tartar. All four dishes where excellent. For dessert we had the babà and Amorellino. Though we enjoy both, the Amorellino is an exquisite dish. They have a sommelier who will recommend the best wine and throughout the meal they served us several dishes on the house like a Cod mousse, a sorbet and a dessert platter with multiple delicious bites. We highly recommend this restaurant!

    We had one of 4 tables at the terrace with view on the Ponte Vecchio during sunset. An incredibly warm welcome and very friendly and attentive service personnel made our evening. The food was nothing less than excellent! We even got a small birthday cake.
