Amazing food, family owned, byob, you won't be sorry

Amazing food, tight space, make reservations as soon as you think you'll be able to go, take your favorite bottle of wine and be prepared to make friend with the tables around you.

Amazing restaurant - the best veal we have ever had. And the ricotta cheesecakes are yummy (although we rarely have room for it) .

I've heard so many wonderful things about Chef Vola's I had very high expectations. We shared a delicious arugula salad with bleu cheese- excellent! A pasta side with pink sauce very good as well. When the entrees arrived the portion size was very generous but I had a fried chicken breast entree with arabiatta sauce that was bland! The breading... More

The house brought my husband a glass of freaking house BOX cooking wine to replace it , really! He could not enjoy his... More

This is a nice restaurant but certainly did not measure up to the many posted reviews. The service is excellent, the food is good (angel hair pasta w/ white clam sauce, veal chop, sea bass and a salad). The space is too tight to truly enjoy your meal. I was also turned off by seeing a mouse trap under the... More

This place is perfect if you enjoy socializing. It is small but very intimate. You feel like you eat with family and friends.

Chef Vola is an old original place in AC. Not much atmosphere and on a little residential street not far from the boardwalk. If you can look pass the old building and tight quarters, you will find an amazing place to eat the best Italian food. The service is great and everything is homemade. Tough to get a reservation though...... More

This is a quirky, wonderful place. It's small, tight, and superb. Food is excellent. It is not easy to get a reservation- you call and leave your number, the owner (?) calls you back and if you are not there to answer, you must call back to speak to him directly. Once you have secured your reservation, you're in. The... More

Have had the privilege to eat here in April and July of 2015. Excellent meals both times. Got the Bone in Veal Parm both times. Hands down the best I've ever had. Tender and flavorful. First time going here, get the Bone in Veal Parm. It will not disappoint. BYOB place, so bring some nice bottles of wine for your... More
