“Good food, great atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013 via mobile

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 was fantastic, handling all the tables herself with grace and efficiency.

“Magical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2012

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. He was also great with the wine orders. There are two dinning rooms one small, the other large. The local Rotary Club members were there for dinner, and even though it was a large group our waiter continued to make sure that we were taken care of. The dinners that we had were Tagliatelle with hare sauce and pasta with blue veined pecorino they were both incredible. If you are in Volterra don't miss the wonderful restaurant.

“Very nice food, a touch pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2012

We had a lovely meal with our family of four, including 2 children, 4 and 2. Park toward the back of the restaurant. Fantastic risotto ai funghi and casarecche di zucchini. The top two pasta events our our 2 week Italian trip. Side dishes were over-priced and a bit boring. The kids had a rigatoni pomodoro that was very good. Very friendly waitress named Sylvia. Definitely worth a stop, but not cheap.

“Good food Too pricey”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2012

Fred Plotkin aside...Da Bado was beyond pricey..my main complaint....food well prepared and quite good..ambience tired and rough around the edges...service..local indifferent tap room style...came highly recommended but somehow given our spectacular experiences in Tuscany and Umbria I didn't have the same experience that others may have had.
