I booked the Borgo San Jacapo for a very special occasion, the proposal of marriage to my partner while we were in Florence for the weekend. As you can expect there were some nerves, not only for my pending question but that the meal and setting lived up to expectations! Everything went perfectly! We went for the Tuscan tasting menu,...

EVERYTHING about this restaurant is superb. The location on the Arno River (try to reserve one of two terrace tables) is very pretty. The interior design (prints and fashion photos) is very tasteful. The service was impeccable. Our waiter was knowledgeable about the menu and wines and very attentive. Our meals were outstanding: sea bass and octopus and wild boar... More

This is a good fine dining restaurant that is part of the Hotel Lungarno. We were a party of 15 at least in a faculty dinner. The menu was carefully chosen for us and the food was exquisitely presented. I love that the menu was special and taste of food was just right. I say just right because it has... More

This restaurant was booked by our hotel staff for my husband and I. We are used to very good food and I can honestly say this was amongst the finest I have tasted.

This was a disappointing experience. I have experienced plenty of fine dining over recent years and am used to the gimmicks , but usually these are incidental to the meals. Here the gimmicks added nothing and the taste of many of the dishes was one dimensional. For example, my veal starter came with a cream and a sea urchin sauce,... More

We recently dined at the Borgo San Jacopo (BSJ) after hearing of the new creations by the Michelin chef Peter Brunel. We were lucky to have a table near the window which was cosy and romantic.

A little bit out of the way but we'll worth finding. They have gluten free, bio and whole meal pastas. The Florentin bread is devine. The food is very tasty and the service correct. Prices are reasonable.
