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 stellato Peter Brunel 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 Brunel propone a Borgo San Jacopo è la sintesi di un percorso lungo, fatto di studio, creatività e tecnica nella gestione delle materie prime.

Oltre al menù alla carta, che propone come antipasto «L'uovo affogato» (un uovo pochet con tartufo nero) o «Il ricordo di Lofoten» (alici marinate, acqua di mare, foglia d'ostrica e grissino al finocchio) come primi il «Risotto in H20 di cappuccio» e la «Pasta e lumache» e come secondi il piccione alla brace e il branzino in due cotture, anche tre menù degustazione. «La mia Toscana», «Ortaggi» e «Variazioni sul tema Patata» i tre menù da sette portate ciascuno che, in una sorta di percorso a tappe, accompagnano il cliente alla scoperta della maestria dello chef. Interessante, e ormai iconico, il menù dedicato alla patata con gli spaghetti di patata alla carbonara e a seguire la spuma di patata in due versioni. Questo ingrediente, poi, è protagonista anche del dolce con le praline di patate al cioccolato speziato. La carta dei dolci porta la firma di Loretta Fanella mentre quella dei vini (superfluo ricordarlo) è sterminata e propone il meglio dell'offerta vinicola italiana e internazionale. Si può affiancare alla cena un menù degustazione anche per il vino o abbinare a ogni portata un calice diverso. Bandito anche l'obbligo di scegliere la stessa formula per la cena se si condivide il tavolo: a Borgo San Jacopo il protagonista è il cliente. E i suoi desideri.

We really enjoyed the experience. We had a genuinly lovely evening. The food was beautifully prepared and the staff excellent, attentive, but not too much.
There was only one ladies toilet and it was out of the dining area and in the main hotel ...and there was a queue. A new toilet, that reflects the dining experience would be very nice.

Really on the food and service. They offer a really good taste of cake as we told them this is an anniversary. We enjoy the dinner and appreciate for the arrangement.

Overall an average experience. Trying to be more than it is and way too expensive for what they offer. Food was somewhat creative but didn’t always succeed. Service was trying to be extremely elevated but fell short. Much too expensive for Florence and especially for the product. Michelin Star pricing for a normal 4star restaurant. Overall, wouldn’t recommend.

Reserved the terrace and beautiful views. Service exemplary through greeting, food, and wine to farewell. Food innovative however sometimes missed the mark (potato ice cream - innovative and perhaps failed as it should have, at least, been “creamy” - in Italy after all it should have achieved this necessity). Very expensive but was expected and understandable given high standards and view. Overall and very good experience

The restaurant offers a beautiful atmosphere in Florence, with views of the Ponte Vecchio. The outside terrace is not as private as I imagined, as there are 4 tables close together, but still lovely nonetheless. The food was meticulously prepared and exquisitely cooked. An interesting assortment of flavors.
