Great value and great service. Our favourite in the area. So much more friendly than Alberaccio di Machiavelli and so much better value. Recommended for lunch and dinner. The locals like it too

La Baracchina was a delightful experience - we loved the food so much, we couldn't resist eating there two nights in a row. If you're looking for a local, "real-food" experience, this is the place. We loved the papparadelle al cinghiale, as well as the...More

Very good "trattoria", a simple typical Italian restaurant. Not a lot of tourists and a lot of locals, that confirms the quality and very good price. Food was good and creative, good wine (avoid the house wine, it worths spending a couple euros more). The...More

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.
