Description: Bottega Baracchi a real real concept shop halfway between restaurant, wine bar and store, an innovative space that has as primary essence, excellence, in all its various forms. Small, subtle fragments capable of giving color to our journey. A lunch, a cocktail or a simple breakfast, go to Bottega Baracchi, sit back and try what is our vision of emotion. Between tradition and innovation.

“Infusion for Cortona”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

Bottega Baracchi is a great new addition to Cortona's already long list of very fine restaurants. The happy news is the menu is fresh new and different from the classic Italian selection. There are 2 eating areas one outside is an outdoor terrace facing the Piazza and entrance to Cortona. This is a nice choice for appetizers and drinks or a cappuccino and breakfast. The other is downstairs and is large meandering thru various rooms with vaulted brick ceilings a more formal restaurant. It is freshly decorated with great style not too formal and not too casual warm and interesting. All their wines are along the walls beautifully displayed on shelves or resting on slabs of barriques. The lighting is especially well done. The entrance to the restaurant downstairs is on the street level where there is a bar where one can have a stand up drink as well.

Waiters are very welcoming speak english and are helpful. We highly recommend the Tuna Tartar as an appetizer. Made from Mediterranean Tuna it is very fresh and scrumptious. Also the coconut shrimp is fantastic, light and tasty. I also had a roast pork local of course and divine.

Definitely a winner and of course the wines are fantastic. We had a Baracchi Sangiovese, always a treat.

“Lunch in the square”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

We have been to Cortona for one day. After strolling for the paved streets of the beautiful town, we were looking for a place to taste the local food, cheeses and wine! We found the Bottega, located in a beautiful panoramic square. It is one of the most pleasant stops of our trip.

“A New Excellent Restaurant/Cafe in Cortona”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The new addition to the offerings in Cortona, Bottega Baracchi, is innovative, interesting and provides a real alternative to the traditional cuisine in Cortona.
The old cafe has been renovated in a modern style with the "Baracchi flair".
The restaurant downstairs replaces the old Disco. The menu is excitingly refreshing with a wide variety of cuisine, including fish. The food is excellent- il Falconierie quality served in a relaxed cafe style.
There is a very good wine list
Overall a wonderful experience which I highly recommend.

“New Restaurant in Cortona:Bottega Baracchi(note Bottega not Bottarga)”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

Bottega Baracchi has just opened at the Piazza Garabaldi end of Via Nazionale in Cortona
It is terrific
It is both a Botegga and a restaurant
The food is excellent and there is a very good wine list
The Baracchi family understand style and this new addition is wonderfully put together
The restaurant is located downstairs ( where the old "disco" was located) the tables and chairs and overall setting create a modern feel in an ancient setting. . The service is "il Falconierie "quality.
Overall an excellent addition to Cortona's offering.
