This was near our hotel & had good reviews so we stopped for lunch. Food was excellent. Really cute atmosphere. We went past at dinner and it was super busy. You really can't go wrong!

We were a little disappointed after eating here at short notice for Easter lunch. Entree and pasta were fine, without being great, but the mains were tough work. Despite the generous serve, the lamb had a weird cloying flavour. Unlike excellent rare beef I've eaten...More

Local friends took us to this delightfully simple and simply delightful place. Nothing fancy on the menu but authentic Tuscan dishes though mainly for carnivores. However, in the antipasti, primi and contorni sections, also vegetarians will find sufficient choices of Tuscan specialities. The food is...More

Friendly and familiar atmosphere in a country redyaurant with traditional tuscan cuisine. Very nice to stop by. NOTE: it is currently undergoing heavy restructuring. It should reopen around March 2016.

Description
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.
