Chef Vola's is a destination restaurant, especially if you have a lot of mouths to feed or you and your significant other are healthy eaters. One dish was better than the next. Vola's does not have a liquor license, but they are more than happy to send someone scurrying on your behalf for a bottle of Italian red to accompany... More

Hard to believe but it is true: every meal and all visits to this great Atlantic City restaurant are absolutely perfect. The Esposito family do it right. Excellent food, sizeable portions, served timely and professionally, and always with personality and smiles. If you have a complaint here it can't be much. We have eaten here a dozen or more times...

The restaurant is always busy and while waiting for our table we were standing in the small area of the basement where you first come in. I was surprised to see the waiters coming through with plates of food going upstairs. It really makes you even more hungry to see the large plates of food being carried upstairs. The service...

Great dinner yet again. From the chicken scarp to Veal Parm to house salad and then the banana cream pie it's an awesome evening!

This place is worth the hype! The food was ridiculously delicious. The staff couldn't be any more professional or accommodating. I was nervous to bring my 3 kids here because of some of the reviews but they honestly treated my children and family like their own. Can't wait to go back. The veal chop parm is truly the best dish... More

The food is not cheap. The seating is cramped at best. But the food is terrific. Start with the house salad but order for about 1/2 of your party as there is plenty to share. The clams with spaghetti in a white or red sauce is great as a shared appetizer or entree. The veal chop served as a full... More

Chef Vola's was worth the 2 month wait. Called in June - went last night (August) the food was wonderful, the service very good, the waiter (one of the owners) delivered a marvelous presentation of the menu, with recommendations as well. It is a BYOB and only takes cash...therefore spend your money on great food -without paying for liquor.

We were truly disappointed. We had heard so much about this restaurant but in the end, it was just a glorified "Oliive Garden" ( at best). Overwhelming garlic, smothering sauces and none of it was inexpensive. It was a disappointing experience, to say the least.

After reading the reviews I decided we had to try this restaurant. I called to make a reservation about a week in advance for a Tuesday night. I was called back and told that they had 530 on the porch. It was a perfect time for us so we took it. This is a BYOB and CASH ONLY establishment. If... More

I cannot tell you about the food as I have not been able to eat here. I have tried to make reservations over the years with I did not try to book early enough(my fault), or they did not call back or most recently. I accidentally called after 5:00 so they would not talk to me as the restaurant was... More
