There are NO words to describe this place! The food, the service and the ambiance is outstanding! My husband was somehow able to secure us a reservation (How? He probably sold our first born but it was so worth it!! She's a teenager with a bad attitude anyway so they can keep her! Haha!) We started with the bread basket... More

Called on a whim and got a reservations for 7:30 on a Friday night. Now it is January and mighty cold outside, but getting a weekend reservations was a nice surprise. The restaurant is small, but we didn't feel cramped. We parked on the street but there is a lot next door that charges $5 .Staff is super friendly and... More

Just went there for my 70th birthday with my family and we all enjoyed the food immensely. Lou stopped to say hello and wish me a happy birthday. It was a wonderful birthday topped off with a fabulous meal.

Ok...I actually feel bad writing this review compared to all the great ones written about this place. I went based on these reviews. Our appetizer was buffalo mozzarella with beef steak tomatoes, soooo average! The tiny pieces of mozzarella (3) compared to the HUGE pieces of tomatoes was odd...who eats all those tomatoes anyway after the mozzarella is gone? It... More

Finally got to take my husband's here and had a wonderful meal. Excellent and attentive service, delicious food. I am gluten free and an Italian restaurant is always a bit risky, but the chicken arrabbiata was by far the best I have ever had - tender, juicy chicken with a delicious tomato sauce with just enough kick. The green beans... More

As many other reviewers have noted, this restaurant is shrouded in mystery (no advertising, no real website, barely a sign on the door)! Expectations vary widely for a first timer. Bottom line for those who don't want to continue reading - above average Italian scoring higher points for quantity than quality but worth the hassle to get in. Excellent veal... More

We were eager to dine at Café Vola because friends had highly recommended it. The staff is pleasant and helpful, even if so busy they can't think! The food is very good. But, here's the issue: portions so huge you can't (or shouldn't) possibly eat them in one sitting. Everything is a la carte. So if you want a side... More

Chef Vola's is always a treat. Difficult to find and difficult to get a reservation but worth ever bit if the effort. A great family business that produces consistently excellent meals and service. Try the specials and don't forget the family style salad and fresh made desserts, BYO but they have connections with a local liquor store if you forget... More
