    My wife and I went to La Volpe on a weekend evening for dinner. It is not often that my wife and I get a baby sitter so it was a special treat. La Volpe delivered. The service was top notch, the food was some of the tastiest my wife and I have had in many years and the ambiance for a date was perfect. This place is a hidden gem. In a small town like Center Morches, finding a place like this is like hitting a bullseye!!

    Food was very good, service a little slow at lunch because there was only one waiter serving the fairly large dining room. Extensive wine list with some good reasonably priced wines. We shared a bottle of the house brand La Volpe Nero d'Avola. The waiter was very knowledgeable and helpful to our group of nine people, willing to modify dishes based on some dietary preferences. The lunchtime prix fixe menu is a great bargain with excellent choices of appetizers and main courses. Would definitely recommend La Volpe to friends and will go back again.

    Lovely restaurant, If you want pizza, it is in a separate part of the restaurant. There was a number of dishes to choose from. The Lobster ravioli was fantastic. At 26 dollars was well worth the price.The waiter was eager to serve. A little to noisey for a first date. I would definitely return to try other dishes.

    Meeting friends midway, a chef friend suggested La Volpe. We weren't expecting much but wow- were we pleasantly surprised. Everything was really delicious. Pasta with sardines, gnocchi, stuffed salmon, baked eggplant, butternut squash soup- all terrific. The only issue was that our Opentable reservation did not appear on their list. They were kind enough to seat us anyway as I showed our confirmation. We will definitely return. l

    We eat out frequently. I found the roasted chick pea salad to be excellent. After the appetizer I found nothing that was appealing. I had the salmon. I found the small rings of salmon filled with stuffing were not satisfying. In fact, you could not get the flavor of the salmon from the the strip-like presentation. The sauce was mediocre. I realize it is difficult to get a decent texture from whole wheat pasta However, the texture of the pasta was totally chewy. This is our fourth time eating at La Volpe. I am not planning a return visit anytime soon.

    Unfortunately this restaurant did not live up to expectations. We started off with some bread and olive oil which was fantastic however it took over an hour just to get our salads. After that it took another 45 minutes to get our main entrée. The service was absolutely her horrendous. our waiter seem like he didn't even know we existed. The food was incredibly salty as well. After waiting for two and half hours for our fairly simple order we decided to just go ahead and leave as it would probably not be worth the wait for dessert. Overall I would not really recommend this place I've had much better Italian food without the outrageous bill which unfortunately did not feel justified with the horrible service.

    La Volpe never fails to satisfy our craving for creatively prepared Italian food. Since we are Italophiles and prefer to eat Italian cuisine only in Italy, we appreciate this restaurant!!! Additionally, the brothers Volpe and Mamma are welcoming always. We celebrate every special occasion here - and dine here in-between just for the pleasure of it. Grazie tantissimo!!!

    I can't count the times we've been here. We are nyc dinners and if your looking for authentic Italian food give this place a try. Apps, entrees, desserts are above and beyond. If your looking for American Italian food with pastas and cheeses, well your not going to find it here. The chef is from Sicily he cooks with the finest pastas and ingredients and we have never walked away from our dinner feeling nothing but gratified and full. Give La Volpe a shot.

    We had driven past La Volpe many times while traveling Montauk Highway and always made a mental note to visit them to sample the cuisine as several of our friends highly recommended the restaurant. We made a reservation for Sunday evening and were not disappointed. Ample parking and attractive exterior were the first things we noticed. Once inside, the muted lighting, high ceilings and dark detailed wood exuded a very comfortable and homey quality. Pictures of famous Italian personalities adorn the interior. The bar beverages are fairly sized and priced. We chose seafood specials for apps and entrees (yellow-fin tuna, salmon and stuffed flounder) and were very pleased with all three. The sous-chef did a fabulous job on these dishes.
