Our food was delicious, a truly enjoyable meal. The portions were generous. The service was so-so. We sat outside and although it was a little cool, we were prepared. We loved watching the sunset from our primo spot. I would definitely go back.

Yes, great view of the bay and the bridge...with lots of traffic whizzing by...at night the lights of the autos and trucks can almost be distrubing..as you walk in your struck with the openness of the restaurant with its high ceilings and sterile walls with paintings that do very little to enhance the starkness of the restaurant.

First off, ignore the horrible TA thumbnail photo of an awful looking dish of something or other. The food here is very good. After their previous place on 30A burned down, Borago ended up cross from The Bay at the foot of the 331 bridge. Right on the bay, the space is warm and not too loud. Service is always... More

We have never been a big fan of Borago's until last night. Most of these "30-A restaurants" were too lazy, or too greedy, or both to open on a Tuesday night in February for dinner since attendance would not be very good. Borago's on the other hand, was wide open for business with their bar and full restaurant contingent. We... More

I ate here with some friends at a school fundraiser event. The restaurant has a great view of the water. The service was very good. They served focaccia bread with an olive oil dip for starters. For dinner I had the mixed greens salad and the Penne Pasta with Italian Sausage. It was quickly served and delicious. I finished with... More

We arrived at 4:45 and they told us to come back in 15 minutes. We were surprised by that as the staff was in there already. So we walked across the street to The Bay and had drinks over there for a couple of hours. We returned to Borago and saw that only 2 tables in the whole restaurant were... More

This is another one of our favorite local go-to's! We usually sit at the bar and the service is always like your at your own home! The food is always delicious, the best consistent restaurant in the area! We love the owners and all the staff, they're fantastic!

Wife had grouper and just pasta for me. Our server, Ellie, made sure wife's selection was gluten free due to celiacs. Note TA still has their old address. It's at corner of 331 and 98 across from The Bay restaurant.

Description
We are a small contemporary Italian restaurant. We have a full bar and bar area, dining room with open kitchen and a screened in porch area. We are chef owned and operated and at least one of the two owner/chefs can be found in the kitchen every night. We have a excellent staff most of whom have been with us for many years. We had our 15 year anniversary on March 1, 2015 with the same two owner/chefs for that time. We have a nice variety of food to choose from, with appetizers like calamari and pan seared sea scallops, salads like Caesar and arugula, pastas like angel hair with pan seared shrimp and three meat bolognese and entrees like grouper nicoise and roasted eggplant lasagna. Please come and give us a try!
