We found this place because our first choice in the area was booked, but we were glad we found this little gem of a restaurant. The service was excellent. The wine list was top notch. Our charcuterie was amazing. And our entrees hit the spot. Definitely check this place out when you're in Florence.

The squid and red onion dish was amazing. The green pea and mint sauce was just the right amount of mint. We also enjoyed the homemade gnocchi. Make sure you leave room to try their tiramisu!

Their service is impeccable! Truly recommend to give them a try if you’re looking for a nice night out on the town.

It was delicious, regional food with a very special note. We liked it a lot. Combined with a super friendly service, clear archticeture and the most suitable mix of jazz classics we had quite a remarkable evening!

Out of the way and off the beaten path yet just steps from across the Arno and easy to walk to from almost anywhere in old town Florence, (we walked there from our hotel on Piazza Santa Maria Novella in July) BOrGO is a neighborhood gem; a diamond in fact. The owner is personable and sees to it that every guest is made comfortable and welcomed with his charming and disarming manner. The food is all locally sourced, prepared with care and skill and presented with a Florentine flourish. Try the pork meatballs; they're out of this world!

Exceptional food, service and atmosphere! Dining here was one of the highlights of my time in Florence. The food was excellent and our server was amazing. If you want to really experience traditional Tuscan cuisine, this is the place. And of course their wine section was just as impressive.

Thank you B.O.r.G.O. for a great experience!

Pleasant meal . Home style cooking- well prepared and tasty. The anchovy starter should be avoided if you don’t see the humour in a tin of anchovies with toasted brioche and butter. My husband enjoyed it but the lady at the table next to us was furious.

This was the best dining experience we had in Florence. It is clear that the owner takes great pride in his restaurant. He recommended an excellent, moderately priced wine and was very helpful in answering all our questions. Food creatively showcased fresh ingredients while being true to Tuscan heritage. Service and ambiance were outstanding as well. Highly recommend.

A little gem in Florence and the food was excellent. It is small so not that many covers and you may have to share a table with strangers. I think the man who runs it needs to hire a waitress though. He is on his own doing everything so as a result you have to wait a bit for orders, drink refills etc. We did enjoy our evening there though.

This is the best first night in Florence spot...easy walk from central hotel and open late (reservations at 945 pm). Service could not be more welcoming and accommodating with perfect English. Wine by the glass was excellent. Value above average. The octopus was among best I've had. Starter boar's ragu ravioli is very local and comforting. Thank you Open Table for this pick.

Dear Sir, thank you for your review. Thank you for your comment, that we respect...but average quality food is probably very far from what we offer...Our food starting from veggies are purchased direcly by farmers and no food is bought in the G.D.O. in many cases our raw materials are really unique things that are not easily found in what you call average food quality restaurants....anyway thanks for your visit.

This place was absolutely amazing! The owner was very hospitable and made my girlfriend and I feel right at home. Everything we ordered was cooked fresh, and was the best dining experience we've had in Italy. To top it off, the pistachio tiramisu was the best dessert I've had in any country. Highly recommend.
