Description: 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...).

Nice very clean atmosphere in a picturesque square. However, the food is definitely the star at this restaurant! There are only two options every meal, which is fine with me as to me its a sign that each option is cooked with fresh seasonal ingredients. And that whoever is cooking is enjoying cooking that meal! We ate gnocchi con funghi and cannelloni gratinati con verdure, followed by a tagliata di vitello. All were superb! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Volterrra.

Great food, the sisters cook wonderful meals. Only several choices, but all is fresh and home cooked.

The restaurant around the corner from the house we rented in Volterra was one of the beat dinners of the whole trip. Only two dishes for primi and secondo. La sera it was two pastas both without meat, both amazing, and liver, and a carne misto. The close atmosphere was so nice and friendly, even though it was not crowded at all. The past few times we could not get in. Don't listen to the not so jolly Aussies. Aussies and food? Non credo di si.

Three sisters, one incredible meal. The menu changes daily and is posted on a chalkboard. On this day we had the papparedella with duck ragu and roasted veal. The pappardella was the best dish of the trip and one of the best things I've ever eaten. Don't miss these girls.

We were looking forward to a meal at La Carabaccia after reading the reviews here. We were very disappointed. The food was quite nice but the service was slow and unfriendly. As others have mentioned, there is no menu, you have a choice of what is available for the night. The bean soup and pasta was very good however, we felt we were not treated the same as the other mostly Italian diners. We were not advised of any desserts and had to wait a long time while the waitress prepared and collected several plates of food for a group that arrived after we had requested the bill. I wanted so much to enjoy our time in this restaurant but went away feeling very neglected and unwanted.
