    This is one of our very favorite places to have fabulous Italian food. We drive about 2 hrs to get there and it is so worth the drive!!! We take a bottle of wine, my hubby gets the veal and I get chicken parm and we split a bowl of pasta... always food to take home with us for the next day!! Love sitting upstairs, very quaint.

    I had been to Chef Vola's many times in the last few years, and wanted to come back to celebrate my birthday in January-it was between Chef Vola's and Knife and Fork. I chose BOTH-Chef Vola on my birthday, and Knife and Fork the day after Chef Vola's is an informal Italian restaurant, what I think is still called a 'red and white tablecloth'-type place. The menu is extensive, with both familiar dishes as well as more adventurous creations available. The portions are very large, and the pricing is, frankly, very reasonable. On top of that, it is a BYOB establishment, so two people could pay well under $100 for dinner without much effort. I was seated in a small room off to the side, and had a good time with both the wait staff and my fellow diners. By coincidence two other people in the room had birthdays, so we all celebrated together. Can't wait to go back again!

    Simply the best restaurant I have eaten at consistently in the United States. Nearly impossible to get a reservation, but worth going with a friend, a distinctive experience. We have been guests here for the past 30 years or so, and it is like eating at home, with far better food... the tables are close, and there is not a lot of wiggle room in your seat, but this enables conversation between tables and even sharing tastes with others.
