Leave the tourist area for a genuine, local meal

Ate there twice during a recent stay in Volterra, and really enjoyed both meals. Fantastic, friendly service surrounded by their local clients. Convenient parking nearby make it easy to reach. A great escape from mediocre tourist food and service.

Ate dinner at Badò during a one-night stay in Volterra, upon the recommendation of our AirBnB host. I am from Italy though I live in the US, so I am quite picky about restaurants. I wanted some authentic Tuscan food and this place delivered! My wife and I loved it, would go back any time.

Returned for probably the fourth time and enjoyed the same wonderful, traditional Italian experience that we have previously experienced. Great food, attentive and friendly staff, many locals in the trattoria.

We decided for a restaurant outside of the old Volterra city, the location is very original, food very good tipical tuscan, the owner is very kind, every course is prepared by hand of his family. I suggest it for a good restaurant in good location and honest prices!

My wife found this place on chowhound. It's just outside Volterra. It was probably my favorite meal in Italy. Giancomo is a great, great guy. This is a restaurant that has been in his family for generations. His mother cooks the food, and it truly was like eating in his house. The food was comfort food at its finest. Everything... More

Don't confuse this with a similarly named restaurant inside the city walls. This one is a local favorite with good reason. Our hotel recommended it and we really enjoyed the local feel and the food is wonderful.

We had a good mean here, at the recommendation of the owner of our hotel. From the menu featuring lots of local specialties, we chose pappardelle with lepre (hare) sauce. Delicious! We shared a second course of grilled duck breast with radicchio. That too, was yummy, though a little tough. Dessert was a house-made fruit crostata. No complaints. Our waitress... More

Having read about this restuarant in Rick Steve's and also on Trip Advisor we thought we would like it and we were not disappointed. It is very popular, so reservations are recommended. The dinning room was filled with english speaking guest, the waiter barely spoke English yet somehow was able to serve everything just as everyone ordered, it was perfect.... More
