An attentive and careful restoration work has transformed the village into an elegant restaurant with great attention to detail. With Florentine hospitality and thanks to the kitchen chef driven directly by Libero and sons Lorenzo and Matteo, the Albergaccio today expresses the traditional Tuscan cuisine at its best. We cook food elegant yet rustic and sincere, that will delight your senses visual and culinary, a trip from classic flavors and traditional to innovative dishes prepared by chefs super qualified. Taking inspiration from traditional Tuscan recipes handed down for generations, all the dishes on the menu are meant for sharing. Using incredible Tuscan products, delicious dishes are created every day in the kitchen, paired with wines and ingredients so good that really speak for themselves.
The food was EXCELLENT! Each course built on the last, until the grand presentation of the standing rib roast all aflame. WONDERFUL! The wines for each course were well chosen. The entertainment was fun and pulled our tour group into the fun! We purchased a crate of wine while we were there, and another, because we gave too much of it away as gifts when we got home! Best experience in Italy!

We stayed in San Casciano for 4 days and ate here twice. The food is excellent, the service pleasant. We had the beef stew, which is really pieces of beef in an outstanding sauce that is so tender it melts in your mouth. The gnochi was tender and the vongole full of clams. They speak enough English, which paired with our minimal Italian, allowed us to enjoy the story of the place and the family.
On our second visit "meat loaf" was the special and it was delicious. The sweet and sour onions side dish was perfect as a pairing. The price is VERY reasonable.... Go and you won't be disappointed.

Every day on our trip was better than the next. The best night was our dinner here. From the moment we entered, we were welcomed with open arms. The wine flowed, the food was delicious and the entertainment was fantastic! This is a must do if you are in the area.

Quaint and rustic Tuscan restaurant run by husband and wife who serve up outstanding courses and wine from a menu that changes daily. A little off the beaten path but well worth the trip. Had our table for the entire night. Loved the Burrata and steak. Highly recommend Gallo Giallo.

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.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.<br><br>A short waiter served the dishes and, during the pods season, yelled not to throw the hulls to the ground.<br><br>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.<br><br>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.
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 desserts. Coffee is outstanding. And the final bill for a four-course meal with wine and coffee was moderate. Having a car to get here is sine-qua-non. Ample parking under the trees. Definitely a place to return to.

We are just outside of Florence. We’ve left the city behind us and have taken the famous Secondary Road n. 222, better known as the Chiantigiana, towards Siena. Beforeentering Strada in Chianti we have on our left the Ristorante Il Caminetto del Chianti known for years for its traditional Tuscan quality cuisine yet not forsaking a few items of national character. The term “Country Restaurant” that can be read on the sign located on its rustic facade is not a misnomer: it is a chameleon-like locale that knows how to be elegant and romantic while at the same time simple and traditional due to its 16 years of passionate family management. The seasonal menu choices are the result of careful research of regional culinary tradition: therefore, next to the “Great Tuscan Classics” there are extraordinary dishes that are now almost forgotten or at least obsolete like Peposo, Carabaccia and Matuffi that come back to life on the Caminetto del Chianti table. The secret to this restaurant’s quality cuisine is found mainly in its use of locally produced prime quality products. Great care is also taken in selecting wines. The excellent house wine cellar, in fact, hosts more than 450 labels, originating mainly from the local area. When the weather is hot, you can also eat on the panoramic Terrace under the shade of the linden trees, while in winter your meals will be heated by the slow and welcoming fire of the large fireplace that gives the restaurant its name.
Location molto accogliente con camino a legna acceso. Accoglienza... come essere a casa Che dire del cibo.... fatto con amore... prodotti di ottima qualità e una fiorentina da urlo. Lo consiglio vivamente.Grazie all'amico Franco titolare e a tutto il personale.

Our group of 9 was taken by motor coach on winding roads and city streets to reach this lovely oasis in the woods. We all loved walking along the lit stone path through Gardens and foliage.
We had a combination of delicious snapper (I think) and very good filet. I can't recall what the accompanying dishes were, but everyone was quite happy and sated at the end of our stay.
We had a piano player during dinner and he was a treat, too.

Montebuoni The restaurant is a quiet corner in the hills around Florence that 'primarily' kidnapped some years ago Emilio Marchitti, chef established by a career of over 35 years, almost all spent in Tuscany at the best hotels and restaurants in Florence and surroundings .The creative cuisine of Emilio, a restored environment, an outstanding view over the valley of Greve, a beautiful Terrace overlooking the countryside of Florence.
I came to ristorante montebuoni and was welcomed as family. All the staff are brilliant especially Emilio. He is not only the chef but drives the mini bus up the mountain. The food is wonderful and plenty of it. The views are amazing If you are looking for a great experience in Tuscany may I suggest you go to this place.
