This was our first time dining at Chef Vola's and our party of 6 thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the entire experience. Gina, welcomed us and guided us through the menu and specials offered - her recommendations were just what first time visitors needed - the nightly specials alone could create an additional menu - food was excellent in both...

You can not say enough about this restaurant! I found it thru trip advisor. The restaurant is small and only word of mouth advertising. The aroma that greets you as you step out of the cab into chef Vola's is mouthwatering. We are from Maryland so we love crab cakes but they are hard to find out of Maryland. We'll... More

Chef Vola's in Atlantic City is one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever been to. It is small, but the food is out of this world. You will not leave there hungry and the staff is great. We had everything from appetizers to dessert. Kept saying we couldn't eat anymore....but when it arrived we did. We were a... More

It is not Per-se or the Fat duck or any other super high end places where having eaten there is more a bucket list item than good food. That being said...enjoy yourself here and take time to pay attention to the details that make Chef Vola what it is. Sure...I wish it was floor to ceiling glass over looking the... More

tight quarters, but that only adds to it's mystique --on a little side street with a little sign..Fabulous Food--Whether you opt for Italian, crab cakes, lamb, no matter what your choice--you'll love it I'm sure!!

Intimate is an understatement, expect to get to know the table next to you, because they are right next to you. The food was authentic Italian, had the veal as recommended no disappointment. Being a BYOB, the wine list was perfect. I like the old school atmosphere of heading downstairs to eat, reminded me of family Sunday dinner with my... More

I went with six friends to Chef Vola's. We could only get a table on the porch but that was actually nicer as there seems to be more room on the porch than inside. The service was exceptional and the food amazing. We all ordered different things and the waiter was kind enough to bring sharing plates to our table.... More

Chef Vola is the best Italian restaurant around. A group so us go once a month that's how good it is. The portions are huge and the desserts are to die for all homemade. I would highly recommend Chef Vola.

Growing up in Philadelphia one experiences restaurants in old homes that have been converted to top notch neighborhood restaurants. Chef Vola's is perfect example of that. If you haven't experienced it before you should and Chef Vola's is the place to ty it. Warm, friendly service and great option on home cooked Italian dishes that are far above average. Ample... More
