We had a wonderful experience at Borgo San Jacopo. The modern decor is lovely and the service impeccable. We started our meal with the chitarra, eggs and truffle (handmade egg pasta, poached egg and white truffle flakes). The taste was rich, creamy, almost decadent, without being overwhelming. I then had the pappa al pomodoro which was covered in edible gold... More

Setting A square entrance opening up to a long tall room with a wide and high window out to the river Arno. There is another room on the right with a slightly lower ceiling, but again a very nice set of windows out to the river. White linen, spacious table arrangements (a rarity in Florence restaurants), with very comfortable chairs... More

The location is nice, with few tables overlooking the arno river. Sofisticated and classy yet not pretentious. The menu has both set menus for a taste of revised local recepies and one with the chef's creativity. We went for "a la carte". Great wine list maybe a bit expensive. We tried the pappa al pomodoro (I had much better ones... More

This restaurant is centrally located and easy to get to. The atmosphere very nice, the staff well trained and very friendly. The food, amoung some of the best I had on this 15 day fine dining trip through Italy. Very pleased, will definitely go back on my next trip. Put this one on your list of must go.

This is a Michelin-starred restaurant and the food clearly deserves a top billing. I would recommend the Liquid Ricotta, Spinach Broth & Tomato, the Pigeon, foie gras & truffle and the Strawberries & Cream dessert.

We went in with high expectations. We did the tasting menu. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed over and over. Each course was beautifully presented but lacked impressive taste and some courses lacked taste at all. On the bright side, the view was magnificent and the wait staff and sommelier were excellent.

Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints.
