Is a nice restaurant well located that only offers a small menu. Something like 4 and 4 options for first and second. Well priced and great taste of traditional tuscan plates. Two first, two seconds and one dolce for 55e All what we eat was really really good

Proving when food is this good you don't need an extensive menu....this place offers a couple of choices for primi and secondi and it is exceptional.

We were recommended by our hotel as we were looking for authentic Tuscan cuisine. There are only two primi and secondi dishes, but it is worth trying something you wouldn't normally as the dishes are really authentic and sooo tasty !

My husband, son-in-law, and grand children had a fantastic lunch at La Carabaccia two weeks ago. We remembered this wonderful restaurant from our last trip four years ago. The food was as delicious as we originally remembered - maybe even better. It is a not-to-be-missed dining experience with freshly made pasta, lovely breads, and memorable beverages. Do yourself a favor... More

We've waited a while to have a table but it was totally worth it. The menu for a dinner consists of just few positions. The parppadelle with a wild boar was very tasty and ricotta for the dessert made us even more certain that we've made the right decision.

We´ve been at La Carabaccia to lunch, we took just the daily menu for the discounted Price, but surprisingly was it really tasty (Pasta and veal stew). And what else to say to the Restaurant - very nice, charming Interieur, very cozy and friendly atmosphere in a beautiful Restaurant in an beautiful City

We had read about La Carabaccia on Trip Advisor and it sounded like another opportunity to sample Tuscan home cooking. Like others we didn't mind the limited menu as we figured if we walked over to the restaurant and there wasn't anything that grabbed us, we could just move on. Luckily, the menu looked great - pasta with a meat... More

I knew going in that the menu was small, two pastas, two mains and desserts. The home-made tagliatelle with liver and sausage was wonderful and the chocolate "sausage" was heavenly. The only thing that was somewhat off was the service which was rather slow. However, we were eating outside on a beautiful day so it wasn't a big deal.

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...).
