A multifaceted space
where the great classics of tradition can be rediscovered

Simplicity, elegance and authenticity

Overlooking Lungarno Acciaiuoli, Il Borro Tuscan Bistro Firenze is a restaurant, a wine bar and a deli with artisanal products of the highest quality.

An ideal place for lunch, dinner or an aperitif where customers can discover and enjoy typical, top-quality products.

The origins of Il Borro Tuscan Bistro

Il Borro Tuscan Bistro was born from Ferruccio Ferragamo’s desire to bring the authentic flavours and slow rhythms of Il Borro – organic estate in the Tuscan countryside where sustainable philosophy and ethical vision are an integral part of the cuisine – back to Florence. Simplicity, respect and attention to the environment are of paramount importance both in the menu and in the location. Most of the products used, such as vegetables, cereals and flours, come directly from the family farm, which boasts an organic vegetable garden, a millhouse and a wine and oil cellar.

Design
and sustainability

The concept of Il Borro Tuscan Bistro is inspired by Florence’s historic, intellectual and cosmopolitan character. The design focuses on the use and enhancement of Tuscan natural materials and neutral but warm colors, all inspired by medieval painting and the Macchiaioli canvases. The reproduction of many engravings from Ferruccio Ferragamo’s private collection – a characterizing element of the architectural concept of the restaurants – is also combined with the lights, colors, fabrics and the use of wood for the boiseries: a testimony to the love for history, traditions and their influence on arts. All the components chosen for the Tuscan Bistro are sourced in Tuscany, a way to ensure higher quality and limit as much as possible the emissions deriving from transport. LED lights were installed to limit energy waste, furthermore, the top-quality kitchen equipment allows all staff to produce fine food while lowering environmental impact and energy consumption.
