during our 1 day stay in a close by B&B we we recommended this place. It's a typical (non tourist) Italian restaurant.
food is simple but tastes good. Like mothers cooking.
don't expect anything fancy just good food

We discovered that small traditional Italian restaurant while visiting a traditional Tuscany market in a square in a neighborhood. There were just few tables inside so we were very lucky to get a free table. We found a warm atmosphere inside and authentic Italian food – quite simple but very tasty. Prices were rather moderate.

Found this restaurant on TripAdvisor, and it definitely lives up to all the hype. The restaurant fills up at 9pm with locals from around barberino. Service was very good, food was to die for! Got half a litre of their house wine for 4 euros-great value! We ordered 2 starters (white kidney beans in olive oil and a garlic steamed spinach). Never did I think such simple sounding dishes would be sooo delicious..and about 4 euros each! For our mains,I had the sliced beef(seems to be their specialty as they have 7 or 8 variations of it, and my wife had a tagliattelle pasta with porcini mushrooms) my beef was cooked to perfection and was cooked with rosemary which brought the dish to a new level of deliciousness! The pasta was sooo fresh and tasty! Dinner came up to about 50 euros..and was easily one of the best meals on our honeymoon! I would come back night after night if I could! Perfecto!

If you are in Firenze for some vacation and sightseeing you can't avoid the crowd. Tourist (well...like you...) are everywhere and all places are crowded. If you have a car you can drive about 45 minutes from downtown, enjoy some shopping at Barberino Factory Outlet and then drive another mere 5 kms to get to Barberino town center, park your car and enjoy some real local food. Actually the menu is about the same you can find in most of the "Real Tuscan food" restaurants around in the region but here the whole thing is a little more "authentic" than elsewhere. Place is not hip or trendy but really in the mainstream of a local restaurant. Menu has some nice surprises like rabbit or pidgeon on the grill plus all the usual Fiorentina steak etc etc. Sides are good and tasty, wine list will not disappoint you. Business is really family run and staff is helpful. Price is anyway somehow in the same line of similar restaurants in downtown Firenze but this is not going to hurt you.

Found this place while driving from Florence to mcarthurglen (outlet village). Very warm & cozy. Excellent food by couple owners. Truffle Risotto was very good. Very large sitting area. Good selection of wine. House wine was good too. Has Belgium beers available. If passing by, should not miss.
