Description: La Baracchina è una trattoria di campagna che fa di "tipico, semplice e genuino" un principio ispiratore.Una cucina concreta, senza fronzoli, pensata con la bocca prima che con l'occhio, per "affamati" amanti del genere..Nata negli anni ’60 come una “baracchina”, appunto, per merende fuori porta, frequentata dai fiorentini per la scampagnata del fine settimana, si è poi trasformata negli anni in quello che è adesso, una trattoria con un’atmosfera semplice e informale. Seppure suggestiva e accogliente in inverno per la piccola sala scaldata dal camino e dalla stufa a legna, esprime il suo meglio d’estate quando si può godere del fresco mangiando tra querce e cipressi secolari.

divine, simple food. Place resembles of your living room. went there 3 nights in a row. Can't find this quality back in the States. Please do yourself a favor and let host Lorenzo take you to a whole new level of farm-to-table kitchen. Oh How I miss this place. Best meal in Tuscany.

We are four Canadians traveling with two great friends from USA. We asked for a recommendation from IL Borghetto, our favorite B&B in nearby Montefiridolfi. The owner, Simone, greeted us warmly and provided superb service. He took extra time to tell us about the wild boar and how they are able to offer it on the menu. Our lunch was... More

We print our menu every day, sometimes twice a day, lunch and dinner. But we all speak english, at least, some speaks german and... More

We just happened upon La Baracchina on a Sunday afternoon while exploring the countryside around San Casciano. The food and the vibrant atmosphere were wonderful. The staff was very friendly and relaxed. Prices are reasonable. Try the tagliatelle con cinghiale. We can't wait to bring our friends.

We were recommended this restaurant for dinner by Villa Murray. We had a delicious, simple Tuscan dinner - one of the best meals on the trip thus far. Our meal included a fresh artichoke & parmesan salad, ricotta with pancetta and garbanzo beans, lamb stew, and delicious house wine. A real gem!
