Today we choose the Italian life. Not only is it the ultimate comfort food but it is a necessary type of food to eat when on vacation. Borago was a recommended spot by a local and immediately understood why as soon upon arrival. Located right inside the restaurant or right next to but the jury is still up for how it’s all set up, is a LuluLemon. One of those fancy, posh east coast looking lulu’s too. It has that boho feels to it with the wooden exterior whilst plants surround its vicinity. I found it quite peculiar to have a lulu smack dab next door to an Italian place, but it’s Florida and anything goes it seems.
Loved everything about Borago. From the outdoor/indoor seating to the plants and sculptures displayed for all to see. It was magical at night when the fairy lights were on and hanging across some trees for a more romantic feel. But let’s get to the best part. The food. For a walk-thru, nose-up-in-the-air experience, watch my reel!
I was highly pleased with the menu selection as well as the presentation and meal itself. The lighting is a bit darker so it provides that moodiness to it with hand-painted floral designs, simply captivating.
Grouper Niçoise Salad, Wild Mushroom Ravioli, and Pene Hot Italian Sausage.
You know I ordered the Grouper as that IS the fish of the panhandle, so it seems.

The staff were so friendly and right on point of wonderful service, well explained and also keen to make us feel welcomed as it seems hard to find well-serviced places these days. If you’re a people-watcher too, this is prime real estate as you can sick back in the comfy seats, enjoy a bottle of house red, chefs kiss Italian food, and embrace the surrounding noises and experiences.
