You can skip the menu if you... More

My friends and I had a girls' overnight trip to Atlantic City. My friend who had suggested we dine at Chef Vola's had been there before and she insisted that we would not be disappointed. I had not heard of the restaurant before, but I trusted her judgment. Boy was she right! We had a fabulous meal with excellent service.... More

Been here twice and the veal parm is the best. Pasta with white clam sauce was excellent and the lamb chops were great. We tried the banana creme pie which we normally woundnt eat but the reviews said to try and it was great. We actually bought a piece of creme brule pie to go. We will be back again.... More

Had dinner at Chef Vola's last Thursday night with my husband and adult son. As always, the food and service were excellent. I have been here several times, but I was so happy to share the experience with my husband and son. Always a fun experience!
