Went for Sunday lunch. Booked a table when we arrived in Volterra at 11.00 and got the last reservation. Lucky us. Guinea fowl tagliatelle was super. Oven baked lamb very good. Lemon chicken not really lemony and a bit oily. Overall, however, an excellent way...More

Food was ok, very good the affettati toscani and the pici with Anatra. Menu is updated on a daily base because they use local products, not much choices but guarantee of fresh ingredients.

The menu changes by the day. Two choices of antipasti, two choices for primi, two choices for secondi. We were there on a Friday and were told our options were fish. We got and shared the fish-stuffed ravioli and the octopus pasta for our first...More

Carabaccia, I was told by the owner, is an earthy soup that locals eat in the dead of winter. Being a lovely May evening, I had pici, hand-rolled pasta, like fat spaghetti, with wild asparagus and stewed rabbit with capers. The decor is retro rustic:...More

Convenient central location, maybe 300 meters away from the main square and just next to a museum of torture. The interior is quite inspiring with old photos, bottles and artifacts. The lunch has only two options for the first course and two for the second....More

Limited menu that changes daily. We lunched twice and both times everything was delicious, from the the home-made pasta to the variety of sweets, and the service was excellent. Good value. A must.

Amazing experience from Tuscan cuisine. Grannie´s receipes, generations tested. Affordable prices. Four meals only, Friday fish. Eat and enjoy (guaranteed) or go else and regret! Volterra without Carabaccia experience? Half enjoyment!

Were able to sit outdoors on a Sunday without a booking (otherwise seems very advisable to book). Menu changes daily. We had caprese starter, tagliatelle with pumpkin, and roast lamb with spinach. All fairly simple and very delicious. Very kind service. Plan for at least...More

We had a wonderful lunch here last week in Volterra. It's an easy walk from the Roman Theatre to the restaurant, which is in a charming part of town and close to the Etruscan Museum (not to be missed). We ordered their two lunch specials,...More

By far the best meal we had during our 8 night stay in Italy! They offer only 4 entrees a night and so the quality and taste is simply amazing. Everything was fresh farm to table. The restaurant itself is charming-decorated so that it seems...More

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...).
