Fantastic Dinner

We sat on porch which was wonderful. Service is impeccable!! Huge portions. Great oral review of the entire menu - with some excellent recommendations. Two had Veal Parmesan & both said it was best they ever had!! I had 16 oz Veal Chop Milanese style - very good. My wife had a Crab cake & 3... read more

On yesterday July 28, 2015 I celebrated my 48th Birthday. My visit to Chef Vola's was one of my best dinning experiences. I truly felt like VIP from the reservation leave a message/callback they knew me by name when I walked in. Waiters and waitresses knew menu from memory, the food Outstanding, and my birthday song.

This is my third time dining here. My second time was just ok, but this time, they once again knocked it out of the park with their to die for food and as always, great service. This time around, we went full blown Italian instead of our usual seafood entrees with chicken parm and the veal chop parm. OMG they... More

1. The secret is out. The once “on the DL” restaurant is now a little more mainstream, but you still have to do a little bit of work to get the phone number and a reservation. (I would recommend 2 months advance). Located in a small house back behind the Tropicana area of the boardwalk, this is still the best... More

This historic and almost impossible to get in without reservations months and months in advance is just tremendous. Every dish tastes like grandma made it, if grandma was a great Italian chef and had no limitation where to get the very best ingredients. Its famous bone-in veal parmesan chop is beyond compare. My guests were amazed at this true eating... More

It's not the best you have ever had , but it's darn close. They were once the tops in food and service, and they are still in that class, just a bit below. The decor is nothing to remark about.in fact it's poor ,as is the table space. They have tables on the porch, that really take away from the... More

Luckily we get to go to Chef Volas when we are at the jersey shore every year. (We know someone who goes regularly otherwise we'd never get in). It's a novel location in the basement of an old house and we are jammed into one of the larger tables but the wait staff and food make it worth it all... More

If there was a rating above excellent Chef Viola's would get it! Unbelievable food, service and oh did I say food! Had the veal chop it was more than I could eat and real good. Took half home and it was great the second day. That is a sign of a fantistic restaurant.

My wife and I had dinner here, for the first time, a few nights ago for our 20th Wedding Anniversary. Hands down it was the best dinner out we have ever had....ever. We'll probably never be able to eat out at another Italian restaurant again. The service was great, very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Yes, the seating is a little... More
