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 elsewhere in Tuscany, the dish here was exceptionally chewy and served with an inedible side...

Hello Mr. disappointed, IT WAS a special occasion! In our obsolete tradition we call it Easter, it's when Jesus, the son of our God, resurrected after beeing crucified and we are used to go eating somewhere right out of the city, to welcome springtime. All restaurants are full of happy families and all restaurants offer a special menu for that... 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 not fancy but fresh and well prepared, the local wines are delicious, and so are... More

If you have a car, make the effort to visit. A wonderful and peaceful setting complimented by a gracious and accomodating staff. No ptoblem if you don't speak italian. Set in the woods this trattoria offers wonderful food and wine at a very reasonable price. Frequented by locals, which is always a good sign, the "shack" offers a great Tuscan... More

Recommended by our hotel and we were not disappointed. This is Tuscan food and wine at its best and all extremely good value. The setting is basic but buzzing with families and groups of friends so has a nice atmosphere.

Our group of eight was easily accommodated by the friendly staff, and the service was pleasant and the food was fine, but it was nothing--frankly--that we have not done at home just as well. Lots of families here and lots of happy people; lots of covered outside seating. Very attractive setting. Easy parking.

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.

Were headed back to Trattoria di Sor Paolo for lunch but they were closed for construction. Checked with the hotel next door and the kind lady working the desk referred us to her brothers place, Trattoria La Baracchina. Took us a while to find it but really happy we did. Very friendly and helpful waitress and surprisingly great food.

We had dinner here . Very friendly owner chef who explained and translated the dishes. The "tuna" of Tuscany was delicious and was in fact Pork. The Ragu pasta was a great hit along with the gnocchi . Dinner for 5 was only €135. Well worth going and we would certainly return.

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.
