Alone by a winter fireplace

What more could you ask for on a cold January evening than to be welcomed at 7pm in front of a roaring log fire alone in this rustic auberge - to drink a glass of the local Chianti Classico - and dream of someone you love

The food was absolutely amazing. We shared a large size (2 kg) Fiorentina steak between 6 people and it was more than plenty - not only that it tasted delicious. All the sides dishes also tasted great - cheese, cold cuts, vegetables. Especially the home made jam that accompanied the cheese - I believe it was a pear/honey combination. It... More

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 all remember you and your guests. Yes, you are right, we don't have an english menu. We are a trattoria, not a restaurant. we prepare fresh food every day and our menu changes every day. 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.

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.
