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.

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.

Great service and inventive dishes with intriguing flavours. A collection of lovely Tuscan wines including a 2008 Chardonnay. Amazing views by the river too.

We were seated on the terrace, and the view was beautiful. Service was very attentive without being annoying. Definitely a place to remember while on our vacation.

The food was quite inventive and very good.
The service, while friendly, was quite slow.
The atmosphere, with its wonderful river views, was very very nice.

A fine dining experience. Definitely different and special meal in Florence. A very nice change of pace from traditional Italian fare. Unlike other Michelin Star fine dining spots, here not everyone has to get the tasting menu in order for one person to get it. Chef allows guests at same table to order tasting menu or ala carte. Also very accommodating for diet restrictions. Some of the items on tasting menu were hit and miss, but main items (pasta and meat courses) were nicely done.

Maria and Miriam stole the show. Very friendly and informative. The somm was excellent. It was just unfortunate for us that we had come off a 10 course meal the night before and did not want to engage in another long eating session.

Went here for my wife’s 40th dinner and the food, service and attention to detail was brilliant. Went for the Experience of 5 courses with the quinoa starter, cauliflower and caviar being the highlight which were both simply stunning until the pork belly arrived which melted in the mouth. Special attention was given to my wife and a nice touch at the end of the night. Salvatore’s help on the wine was also appreciated and not being a connoisseur myself!

Perhaps the quality that really sets a top restaurant apart from the 'merely' very good is the ability to create dishes that surprise the palate from beginning to end and provide unfolding layers of flavour. We experienced this at Borgo San Jacopo, both in terms of the food and the expert wine pairings. The raw prawn appetiser in particular was outstanding. Waiters were unfailingly kind and professional, never overly present. Memorable dining.
