Volta is one of my favorite Oxford spots for several reasons. First, it is a nice hip place that is off-the-Square with parking. Second, it has a wonderful happy hour - 2 for 1 drink specials. Third, it has appetizers that actuallly feed more than two people. Their hummus actually comes with enough pita bread to eat all the hummus. Fourth, it has a wonderful deck (with fans) that is just perfect anytime of year. There is little better in Oxford than sitting outside on their deck, having a drink, and noshing on some hummus.

The food is very consistent. True, the pita pizzas are small but they are, as another reviewer noted, pitas. I do feel that the food is a bit overpriced but not really by Oxford standards. The wraps are very filling and are a good size. They are also willing to make substitutions (the falafel wrap is better with creamy feta than with the standard ziki sauce). The service is generally very good.

Overall, this is a restaurant that is worth a try! I doubt it will disapoint if you go in with the proper expectations.

Volta is a neat restaurant in an old gas station painted bright midnight blue! It is pseduo-Greek, I guess. The Greek salad is good. The hummus is delicious. The wraps and gyros are a little greasy. The margaritas are good. It is a little hot in there. I would say the clientele is more college students. Overall, pretty good...

The Greek pizza was the size of a teacup saucer and tasted like cardboard (both bites). The salad was old, rusty, and wilted. Only time will tell for this restaurant. Won't last long in Oxford.
