The Baracchina is a typical Tuscan countryside “trattoria”, where simplicity combines with genuineness.Born in the 60ies as a shack where, on weekends, people from Florence would go for picnics, it slowly evolved into what it is now, a trattoria with an easy and informal atmosphere. The Baracchina is suggestive and cozy in winter, with its small lounge heated by fireplace and wood stoves, and striking in summer, when meals can be taken in the refreshing shade of secular oaks and cypresses. The owner likes to recall how thirty or more years ago Angiolino used to barbecue huge steaks while his sister cooked penne strascicate and beans the Tuscan way. A short waiter served the dishes and, during the pods season, yelled not to throw the hulls to the ground. The management changed several times, with more or less success, until the Baracchina nearly closed down in the years spanning the two centuries. But the place is cozy and it has what it takes, so why not resume the principles of the early years, which were simplicity and genuineness, combined with a fair price and a professional and skilled management. This is the new/old Baracchina, a “substancial” trattoria, the ideal place for those who wish to eat well, no frills at an honest price. Perfect for an informal dinner as well as for the Sunday lunch, and for business or tourist luncheons. You will also find a suggestive glass veranda surrounded by huge trees, especially suited for banquets like communions, business meals, birthdays and so on.

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

We were here in april, the restaurant was full with italian people. Good signal! The waitress explained all the dishes on the menu, so we felt very welcome. The pastas tasted very well. Tip: share some pastas with your friends/family. And for the meat: try the bistecca fiorentina with bone. Good chianti wine and even 100 euros including wine for... More

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
