Its hard to get a reservation but when you do its worth the wait. Had the veal chops. It melted in my mouth. I was down over the winter during the snow storm that gave New York 32 inches. But only 6 inches in AC people cancelled so I'm looking for heavy snow again.

I hate to write a great review because then we would really NEVER get a reservation but, okay, it's the greatest. The two crabcakes ($39) were the size of softballs. Couldn't see ANY filler and they were delicious. The shrimp francaise was very, very good. Five large shrimp was plenty with a salad and a little dessert. The tiramisu was... More

I can't believe I lived here all my life and never visited before! The seating is a little cramped, but you will not be disappointed!everything is al a carte, the main entrees are huge! We celebrated my birthday so there was a group of us. We tried the house salad, linguine with white clam sauce, angel hair pasta with bolognese,... More

The atmosphere is very romantic; we were sitting on the enclosed front porch of the house that the restaurant lives in. We had one main server, with 2 assistants, so there was always someone nearby to cater to our every need. I had the Chilean sea bass; my wife had shrimp francaise with a broiled crabcake. We shared a plate... More

Worth the drive! At least try it once, and you will be back. Food was very delicious, service was great. Our main server was Meghan, she was very knowledgeable about the menu, as are most. Very tight inside, but we were talking with the table next to us at times which was nice. Tables are literally on top of each... More

So, I was super stoked when I received a return phone call from Chef Vola's. The way this restaurant operates, is, you call and leave a voicemail message letting them know your reservation details, then they call you back to confirm your reservation. I have left a few messages in the past with no return phone call. It was my... More

Hard To Get In, But Delicious. Cramped, crowded, noisy. Go for the food, the preparation, the quality. Odd, but pastas were just alright, and everything else was exceptional.

Chef Vola is a very good restaurant, as stated in my subject line, but as Italian food goes I would say it is a solid meal but not amazing. I think it is a little over rated but worth a visit for sure.

Cute, quaint and not so quiet. Home style portions are pretty big. Menu is ala carte. We order a salad, pasta and a few dinners to share. Finish off with coffee and Chef Vola's banana pie. You won't be disappointed. We do visit every Atlantic City visit. Walking distance from Tropicana boardwalk.

We went for a meal here with my aunt and uncle. We are visiting from the UK. I had been here before with my aunt and uncle but my boyfriend had never been to the east coast. We had Megan as our server and she was brilliant. We were amazed by her being able to recite the whole menu. The... More
