Save yourself the cost of a flight to Rome...this food is outstanding. Little place but awesome food. Worth the wait outside. Recommend calling ahead for reservations.

We looked up Trip Advisor's recommendation on places to eat Italian food in Boston. This place was ranked well among a variety of options. We sat at the front of restaurant and had a nice view of rhe street. We started our dinner with a commentary calamari appetizer which came with a white and a red dipping sauce. Next came... More

We walked in off the street. What drew me in was the sheepskins on the seats. Volle Nolle is tiny, with maybe enough seating for 25 people. Dark walls, a wall of wine bottles, and a good music mix. Food was terrific. Mm rolls were fresh and warm and olive oil and olives sooooo good. Arugula salad was simple, served... More

We've been there by surprise as the place looked nice. Warm welcome and caring people. Small but exciting menu. We went for starters and the main courses ; difficult to choose so we tried a bit of all. A nice change in the area with surprising tweaks for example for the green beans !

I must say that the previous reviewers were right. Volle Nolle is so good....the food is creative, beautiful and so good. We had a party of four and ordered many dishes to share. The grilled Octopus is a must! Don't stand in line next door...dine at Volle Nolle!

Volle Nolle is a new taste sensation! If you are looking for another "red-sauce-North End, Italian American, you won't find that here but rather, what my wife and I found to be one of the best, most creative flavor profiles in all of Boston! The hospitality started when we were waiting outside , because we were about fifteen minutes early... More

We had been wandering about for ages looking for a bar or restaurant and the place next to this had a queue and didn't look anything special - then we found this, and they had tables! I suspect because it looks a bit trendy - it only has about 18 seats but the food was very good, we had a... More

As a former resident of Boston and a frequent visitor, I've spent plenty of time in the Little Italy neighborhood. This is now my new favorite spot. My wife and I were looking for a place to have a glass of wine or a drink and the look of Volle Nolle caught our eye. It's small with open windows looking... More
