To expensive, unfriendly staff!!!

Elsewhere you get more for your money and a nice restaurant alone is just not enough!

Never ever again!

“PERFECTO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

We have dined at Le Volte on several occasions with friends (including for my birthday). Coming to here is of course for its raw seafood and oysters. We've ordered 5 dozens, yummy, fresh with lemon. Service was top notch, we've been greeted warmly, the staff was friendly and the food was wonderful. The only disturbing thing about Le Volte, it was way too busy that nite and we didn't get to enjoy that famous Italian intimate atmosphere. Anyhow, Le Volte is a beautiful place (interior arcs make you feel like you're paying a visit to an acient winery cell), friends liked it and we're definitely coming back again.

“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I visited Livorno during the summer of 2012 with my family , with high expectations , and Ristorante Le Volte certainly delivered! The restaurant is located on the waterfront near the marina , so the view and atmosphere is calm and relaxing. I ordered the 'Tagliata di manzo rucola e parmigiano' which was beef with Parmesan and it was cooked well and the rest of the food was of the same standard. The restaurants interior was stunning , with pictures covering the walls and a huge statue too. The restaurant also has free wifi which is always good! The prices were a bit high which is the only downside , but you pay for what you get and the rest of the experience was great! The staff were friendly and ordered our food fast , and the food was cooked pretty fast and we didnt have to wait long. Im not very educated in the italian language but I noticed most of the traditional italian dishes were on the menu as well as a huge variety of wines and drinks.

Overall the service , food and atmosphere was great and enjoyed the place as a whole. Ristorante Le Volte is a great italian restaurant!

“Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

We had high expectations but had a terrible experience. When our bottle of wine was opened the first glass poured was full of cork. We asked for another glass of wine but were given an empty glass. after asking for more wine we were given back the original glass full of cork. The starters were average. Salad was slices of cheese with pear and walnuts on undressed lettuce. very average although the cheese they'd bought was great. Mains were terrible. Fish left a metallic taste in the mouth. Lobster pasta arrived looking inviting with what looked like 3 big pieces of lobster in the shell, only to find the shells empty and a tiny bit of lobster in the pasta. Steak was rare when ordered medium well, only to be sent back twice after obviously being microwaved. Steak with parmesan and rocket looked like it was off-cuts and overcooked, although tasty. The only thing that saved the evening was the ok service and the excellent focaccia which is what some of our table had as their sole meal. No apologises or remedies were offered, the owner's explanation was that it was a seafood restaurant so you shouldn't be ordering steak. Avoid.
