    Arrived a few minutes early. Was seated at that time. We were a party of 4. We ordered drinks. By the way they were expertly made. The four of us had not been out to dinner in some time so we had a lot of catching up to do. We mentioned to our waitress that we were looking for some space between appetizers and dinner. She was very understandable and still attentive. We got to enjoy our meals and drinks without any pressure. That was greatly appreciated. We all had different main courses and were all completely satisfied. Thanks for a great night.

    This place seems to be going down hill. Every time we go the service gets a little worse and the food quality declines. The new menu with a price for credit and a price for cash is straight up tacky. You don’t need to charge me $19.66 for credit and $19 for cash…just charge me $20. Nobody who will pay $19.66 is going to stay home if it’s $20.

    Always a great experience. The food was excellent. So fresh and prepared perfectly. The owner greeted us when we walked in and asked us how our dinner was after it came out. Amber, although a new waitress, did a pretty good job. She was very pleasant. My wife and I love this place and celebrate a lot of occasions here. Last night was my wife's birthday and we had a great night.

    We went to La Volpe to celebrate our 6 month anniversary. The service was absolutely horrendous. The waitress was impatient, nasty , slow and actually sucked her teeth at us when we had to ask for coffee a third time. She did not have a clue about the food either. Her negative attitude really cast a pall on what was supposed to be our day to celebrate. The food was overpriced and nothing special. I could’ve made it better myself. We live in the area and told our friends about this awful experience. We won’t be returning.

    So we have been here several times over the years and the food and atmosphere is always good. I have to say that I'm not sure if they have changed chefs but the menu seems to have changed and I have to say the food was not as good as it used to be. The final bill seemed very high for two couples, we did have a few cocktails but all in all not what it used to be. Not sure if anyone else has had this experience. Would try again maybe due to the winter.. possibly they are not on their best game??? Not sure.

    Food and service was very good. Portion size was just ok - I thought, for the price, portions were a little on the small side. I know prices have gone up everywhere for businesses, however, the prices and the portion size don't seem to add up.

    La Volpe never disappoints.. the food is always delicious… the specials are outstanding .. we had shrimp sautéed in a little Sambuca in a light pink sauce .. 😋 my husband had the veal chop special pounded on the bone , perfect. The salmon was crispy on top and moist in middle .. so good. Highly recommend! ♥️ the owners are wonderful, walking around to each table, even sent over Lemoncello shots after dinner. And don’t skip the ricotta cheesecake, amazing.

    I went out with friends and the atmosphere was perfect! The lighting the temperature the noise….now for the food. It was amazing as always! I have never had food there I don’t not enjoy. Also we loved the fact that a large party was coming in to the party room and the manager asked us if we like to move the table because it might be loud. Well it was not and they have this very thick curtain that got shut for them in the room and we didn’t hear anything. It was a very nice and thoughtful thing to do. All around great experience. Our waitress was great, Petra and forgive me if the name was botched.

    It was very busy but it it would have been nice to have been advised by the wait staff without me having to track them down for status. Reservation was for 6:15, we got to the table at 6:30 and didnt get to order drinks until I went looking for a waitress until 6:45.
