Excellent food. I had a cheesesteak sandwich and it had to be the best I have ever had. The only draw back is location. It is sort of off the beaten path, but parking is the greatest issue.

Great casual dining. We wanted margaritas and these were great. Food was wonderful and service was excellent. There are picnic tables outside but not too many. I hate inside dining on a nice evening so we waited on an outside table. Worth the wait. Would certainly come back here on our next visit to oxford.

I'm bummed. I wanted to love Volta Taverna because I love Greek food and I was underwhelmed. The restaurant was clean and the service was good, but the food was just ok. I had the falafel sandwich and the pita was great, but the falafel balls were hard and overcooked and there were only 3 in there, which surprised me.... More

I enjoyed a weekday lunch on Volta's outdoor deck. This casual, friendly pub serves soups, salads, wraps and pizza. My homemade lemonade, chicken wrap and sweet potato fries were tasty. Shout-out to my waiter Trevor, who was efficient, cheerful and always circulating around the deck, making sure everyone had what they needed. The housemade dessert menu looked tempting, but I...

Volta is great for Greek inspired dishes, such gyros and pita wraps. During this visit we had a pizza on a pita, a salad, hummus dop and a lemon chicken wrapt, with side of fries. Averything was good tasting and simply, but attractively presented. Volta uses plastic basket, plates and wax paper as serving dishes, They use stainless steel knives... More

Great place to come on a date or group night. Start with the hummus dip and margaritas and finish with bread pudding or the baklava. Great atmosphere inside or outside and an even better location, still have the feel of the square but minus the parking problems.

Have wanted to stop in here and finally were able to do so. Good choice! The atmosphere was casual and relaxed, and the dining area was unpretentious but still nice. A friendly, helpful, somewhat laid back attitude from the staff was just fine. Food was good and plentiful,and the half-price Margaritas were very good. Overall, a positive experience that will...

My family and I eat there many times a week. We eat there because the food is always great and the waiters and waitresses are the best in Oxford. Their grilled chicken and french fries are the best in the world. My parents really like their salads. They say they are super fresh. They also love their hummus. You should... More
