Excellent Tuscan food. Home cooking at its best, fresh, with the Volterra love and flavor. We can't wait to return soon and enjoy their kind service and food, and especially their great prices. Of course, their house wine is just great. Nice location near everything...More

After a busy but pleasurable trip thru Rome & Amalfi Coast, getting to Tuscany and smaller hill towns was a relief. The ancient city of Volterra allows only limited driving within the walls so pedestrians stroll the cobblestone streets and alleys looking for the authenticity....More

The food was really good: authentic tuscany kitchen and nice home made pasta. The service was poor: not friendly, arrogant and I perceived that they are sick of tourists. The housewine (white) was so bad (tasted very acid) that we could not drink it and...More

Good choice? Tipical? Seems we'll never know. This because, after being asked for a table for two, the waiter simply forgot us. We waited a good 20 minutes in front of the entrance and no one notice anything, like "kitchen is closing", or "we are...More

Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. Food is as you would expect from your Italian grandma, simple, tasteful, but don't expect haute cuisine. If you are there, try it, but don't make a detour.

La Carabaccia, born from this love of age old flavours found in the Tuscan cusine, the passion for traditional tastes has been passed down to us from our grandmother, which we today, Sara and Patrizia, have the pleasure of sharing with you. The cusine of La Carabaccia offers a daily selection of authentic dishes, enabling you to saver the taste of time past, in a cosy and family setting. Everything is locally produced, in season and selected with genuine care and dedication to serve only the best. If you would prefer to select something other than the dish of the day, you can find a deliciously tasty alternative in our gastronomy (cold cuts, cheese, bruschetta, crostini...).
