As you enter this restaurant, you realize that it is high standard, with its sophisticated vintage decor and soft lighting.
But the high quality is above all confirmed by the food, full of personality and impeccable quality, with no exception.
We were five, and we dined here for one of us's birthday party. We chose our dishes from the day menu (four main dishes and a pasta dish), as for the appetizers we were advised by the waiter, very friendly.
Preceded by a taste of gazpacho and accompanied by an excellent Prosecco wine bottle, five rich starters (not on the menu of the day) were proposed, each consisting of a baked bundle of eggplant slices, alternating with cheese slices; and of a fondue bowl.
The first course (chosen only by me) was a delicious dish of "penne" pasta, cheese, sausage and "Colonnata" lard.
The main dishes were a "cartoccio" of mixed fish, and three "scottona" veal (ie, 13 months old and which has never calved) fillets with salad dressings.
Finally, to celebrate the birthday, a huge, nice fruit cake, specially prepared for us.
The dinner was accompanied by two excellent bottles of "Morellino di Scansano" red wine
The bill was 300 euros, overall proportional to the local level.

Ravioli: tasty but "fishy." Steak: small with a bit of potato, weird sauce, not tender. Fish: tiny portions, bits of potato, very fresh and tasty. Everything served on a slab of slate, which sounds innovative until you eat from it and find things sliding off.

We go to Firenze often; you'll do much better elsewhere. But if you like pretentious little restaurants in New York or Los Angeles, you might like it.

We went here on the recommendation of our Airbnb host. Food was excellent and they recommended a great bottle of wine. They even made a special meal for my daughter who wouldn't eat any fish.

We were delighted with Baccarossa - attractive interior, committed, skilful staff and above all delicious food. The menu is short and fish-orientated, but there were veggie options and a meat dish if preferred. A thoughtful and detailed wine list. Reasonable prices. All in all I give this very high marks.

Went here for dinner with my Mom and I would not go back. While the food is good, the restaurant lacks the warmth and friendly, good vibes you look for on a good night out. Our server was fine, but tables were not well attended. It took us ages to get our dinner, and tables around us seemed perturbed that they were also waiting a while for their dishes. While the food was tasty, it didn't feel like good value. It was pricey and the service was so slow that I wouldn't say we enjoyed ourselves. They need to put on some music, hire a few more waiters, and try to be a bit more welcoming. It felt like we were given Michelin star food in an awkward environment.
