The food is beyond words. The service could not be better. This coxy restaurant gave us a dinning experience like we have never had before eating out. The veal parm on the bone is not only huge but fork tender as was my wife's chicken parm. The fresh pasta was outstanding. Try to save room for desert. The cheese cake... More

I love this restaurant! It's very hard to get a reservation! The food is so good. The veal parm is tender, the pasta is perfect, any side dish is great. Save room for desert, the coconut pie, banana cream pie are to die for! The service is great! The one problem is it gets VERY noisy!

I have to start by saying that I had to call many times and speak to many different people before being able to get a reservation. Even then, I had to call back again to confirm my reservation. That being said, it was worth the trouble and the hype. My husband and I had heard from several people how good... More

We had to get a reservation a month in advance. 4 of us (men) were on a golf trip to AC. At the outset, I have to say I am fairly critical when it comes to Italian food. My parents lived in Italy for almost 20 years and I visited them often. We started with a salad bowl and prosciutto... More

Thanks Lou for yet another amazing dining experience. Tucked in a house near the Tropicana is this gem of a restaurant. Seafood cold salad is amazing, light and delicious. Veal sausage is the best dish you will ever have. Fish, pasta, steak, chicken or veal, whichever you decide will not disappoint. Service is superb and not rushed. BYOB and cash... More

This restaurant is the ultimate Italian dining experience. These types a places do not exist anymore and I'm glad these folks keep up the old school tradition. We went with two other couples for a friend's birthday. The place is small and crowded but that's part of the experience. It's all about the food.

Stayed in Atlantic City for a few days and wanted to try something outside of the casino hotels. Read about Chef Vola's on line and enjoyed all the positive reviews. We were able to get a reservation only a few days in advance which I understand is nearly impossible. All I can say is WOW--it was worth the short trip... More

This place was great. Went with a friend while staying over at the Borgata on St. Paddy's Day. Hidden little place a short stroll from the Tropicana. A little small inside but the wait staff and food were both great. I had the Veal Chop Parmigiano on the bone. This I hear is their specialty. A little pricey for Veal... More
