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... More

Firstly it was hard to find as there were two buildings with the same number, about 200 metres away from each other. The atmosphere was fair. When the door was opened to the outside (it was a hot night), the graffiti on the building opposite ruined the atmosphere/view! The food was lovely but I have to say with a Michelin... More

This place is phenomenal. I ordered the chef's 5-course tasting menu and wound up having one of the best dinners I've had in years. The seared tuna with sesame seeds and, particularly, the octopus in a balsamic vinegar reduction were simply sublime. The octopus melted in my mouth. The dessert, a mint chocolate cheesecake, was delicious too. Amazing food. It... More

As others have pointed out this is not your run of the mill restaurant. It does aspire to be in the top tier, but does not quite make it. The locale is rather small, maybe a dozen tables, a bit claustrophobic and to some it may appear not tastefully decorated, particularly to some foreigners that prefer modernity. All tables and...

I do not agree with all the good comments I read on this restaurant. I am disapointed.Too much expensive for the quality of the food.

Baccarossa offers a menu of seafood, prepared in an innnovative modern fashion. The menu is relatively short, because it is limited to what is available fresh that day. We were very pleased with both courses and felt that the chef made a real attempt at creativity. It is somewhat expensive but this reflects the cost of the ingredients (several of... More

Most restaurants in Florence offer traditional Tuscan cuisine. Thus, it is of great interest to try those who are a Little bit more innovative. This is one of those restaurants but unfortunately it is not a success. The interior is supposed to be chic but mostly resembles a storage-room. The menu is in English but the very friendly and helpful... More
