Borago is delicious Italian fare and is a very popular spot with the locals. Every time I think about going out to eat on 30A (where I live), Borago is usually where I want to go. I'm like a lot of people, I think, and order the same 2-3 entrees every time - alternating them. I love the chicken piccata,... More

My wife is still recovering from stem cell trasplant, so taste buds and digestive tract are a battle. But the waiter and staff bent over backwards to make sure she enjoyed her meal. Her grouper was perfect! My chicken was a little dry -over cooked- and I mentioned it to the owner who immediately comped our desert. We will be... More

One of my favorite restaurants on 30A. Great Italian food while at the beach. The pasta dishes are all excellent. The three meat Bolognese is a must have. . I prefer the chicken piccata, which I had earlier tonight, and it was awesome. They also make an amazing Caesar salad. I always go yo Borago's when down on 30A. 👍

Have not been to Borago in about 4 years. I am sitting at the bar....waiting, waiting, waiting. ...I am sure that our order will eventually arrive.

My husband is Italian, so his standards are high. His dinner at Borago literally brought tears to his eyes. ("Just like Grandma used to make.") We were in heaven after the appetizers, including arroncini (honestly, the best I've ever had), veal meatballs, scallops with polenta, and fresh-baked bread. We took advantage of our waiter's suggestion to order half-portions of entrees... More

We've been dining here for over 10 years. Every trip to the beach includes dinner at Borago. We usually dine here on our first night. We always have the veal meatballs and the sea scallops appetizers which are both served over soft cheese polenta. They are outstanding as well as the entrees. one of my favorite dishes is the Angel... More

We were tired of fish and junk food at the beach. We sat at the bar and the service was awesome. We will return tonight, it was that good. Nice selection of wines and great bar. Bolognese with tortellini was the best. Steak, pork loin, were great. Show up early or be sure you make a reservation it fills up... More

We have driven by Borago a hundred times when visiting the 30A area, and this year we finally decided to give it a try. And are we ever happy we did! We arrived early and were seated immediately. First we had drinks and the fried calamari. Both were outstanding! Compliments to the bartender for a very creative drink menu. Our... More

We have dined here off and on for about five years. I almost hate to tell everyone about it, because we have never had a wait. The food is delicious every time. People in our party raved about the Bolognese sauce, the salmon special was great. We had a large party as well. The youngest was 15 and the oldest... More
