Description: Osteria il Volto apre il 26 Marzo 1981 e ha un immediato successo. Diventa il ritrovo della gente del paese che si ferma per bere un buon calice di vino, come l’aperitivo. I vini si servono soprattutto al bicchiere e si scelgono dalla lista scritta sulla lavagna. Ci sono i vini della Franciacorta, ma anche i grandi dell’enologia nazionale e anche qualche vino straniero. Le persone anziane passano le giornate a giocare a carte, i giovani vengono iniziati alla degustazione dei vini della loro terra. Il bancone spesso e volentieri si trasforma in una piccola accademia, intorno al quale si fanno le discussioni su temi più disparati, prevale il calcio, ma non mancano le polemiche sulla politica, sul salame e sui lavarelli.

Wow. Was here in summer 2012, cosy traditional osteria. Great typical food, also local fish from Lago Iseo. What struck me most was the opportunity to get ANY wine available by the glass. Great offer and prices very very reasonable. Highly recommendable.

Wondering around Iseo on a Saturday night we stumbled upon this wonderful small restaurant in the centre and made a reservation. We sat in the bar area as we had our dog with us but we enjoyed the atmosphere and the food & the wine were excellent. We saw the tagliatelle with fresh fish on the table next to ours and ordered an extra course as it looked so good and indeed it was that good we still ate our main courses as well! The waiter was very attentive and even opened a special big size bottle of wine for us (as the 'normal size' had run out!) it was a special evening in a very nice surrounding with very tasty food, we will go back!

We ate at Il Volvo on a recent holiday in Iseo. Welcoming atmosphere and, although the waiter didn't speak a lot of English, he brought out the chef to explain some dishes to us! We tried beef in olive oil which, the chef explained, was beef cheek. It was delicious, served on a small bed of polenta. For desert we chose "chocolate cake", but this turned out to be chocolate fondant and was perfectly cooked and simply delicious. We chose to drink the house wine and this was perfectly acceptable. In the UK for high class dining such as this we would have paid an awful lot more!

Bit disappointed with the Volvo restaurant, the pasta was good but the rest was just average, my pudding was meant to be panecotta but came up as flat as a fried egg and just as runny, I know it was hot out there but it looked like it hadn't seen a fridge or had been sitting on the side for a while- not pleasant. Didn't go back again

We had traditional fish dishes at lunchtime somewhere else - we thought this was going to be similar - but this was far superior - tradition and high class dining all at once - highly recommended
