Four people had three different items and all raved about their choices. Lovely restaurant overlooking Scottsdale airport and fun to watch the activity on the runway. H.M was a great server!

It's a good place to watch the planes and have a good burger - but not a restaurant to write home about.

We’re big Volanti fans and were excited to join eight friends for a holiday HH and dinner the Saturday before Christmas- six of them had never been before. Although a solo guitar player arrived to provide a bit of much needed ambiance (there was no music prior which we thought was awkward) ... but boy were we surprised that there were ZERO Christmas decorations! Not a strand of lights, not a tree - nothing! I thought it was a big missed opportunity and a disappointment for our holiday get together. Food and service were great though ...

This was my second time at Volanti. Loved it both times. Food was better in October 2019, but the service was much better yesterday, December 20, 2019. Maitre 'd, and wait staff very personable and attentive.

Volanti is one of our favorite restaurants. It is on the runway at Scottsdale airport and you can watch the planes land and take off. The food is outstanding. We've had the burger, pastel espanol, tuna tower, rueben sandwich achiote chicken salad, etc. All of them were delicious. We have brought many of our friends here, and they all were impressed.

Great place with cool Ambiance considering it's next to the Airport runway however I received three tacos when the menu said 5 I did not complain because I'm not a big eater overall the fact that it's located next to the runway makes it a very special place to have breakfast lunch or dinner

We tried it for the first time on a Friday night. We sat about 10 minutes before the waiter even showed up to say hello and take drink orders. Once he brought those we ordered. We never saw the waiter again until we got the check. My husband’s steak came out almost raw and we tried to flag anyone down for help because he ordered it medium. We finally got the hostess walking by to bring it up to the kitchen to cook it a bit more. Unfortunately, the food didn’t really have much taste. I got a Peruvian salad and all I could taste was vinegar. And yes, it’s on an air strip so we knew it would be loud, but they had the doors open and it was beyond loud which made it impossible to talk to anyone at the table.

The evening was my daughters first visit and she is excited to bring back her friends! The GM, and staff (shout out to Ben) were so friendly and enthusiastic! The food was so tasty!! Recommend the Volanti meatballs, sliders and mushroom bruschetta!! A plane lands almost every 5 minutes with takeoffs in between. Everyone was so knowledgeable of the workings of the scottsdale airport.. no question unanswered. Sunsets and mountain silhouettes. Great happy hour and unlimited guesses of where is everyone coming and going!! Must go eatery!!

Hidden gem in Scottsdale! Not many people think about going to an airport for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Very cool atmosphere, excellent food, and watching multi million dollar planes take off and land adds to the experience. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed. Sit on the outdoor patio if possible, though there's not a bad seat in the house.

We love this restaurant and normally it’s really good but this time we all walked out scratching our heads. Some food was good, some just ok. Ambiance being on the runway is always a great. Now for the service. Worst ever. We had to get up and look for him on numerous occasions. We got there at 5:15 and by the time we ordered, happy hour was almost over by a minute left and we had to find him. His attitude was he really didn’t want to be there, rude and didn’t give a crap. If he was having a bad day, I’m sorry but when our bill is $150, he should care.

We enjoy coming here, not only for the wonderful food, but the service is always so good and friendly. Watching the planes land and take off is also a great experience, the restaurant views of the airport is fun.
The chef makes wonderful food, watch for the daily soups, we had Posole (Mexican) when there, and it was the best we’ve ever had. Next week he is making Mexican meatball soup, and we will come for that! Burgers, and their fries are amazing, as well.
We are never disappointed when we come here.

Awesome local gem of a restaurant & bar hidden away on the 2nd floor of a corporate office building located just west of the runway at Scottsdale Airpark. They even have live entertainment as you watch the jets take off and land. The views of the McDowell mountains and beautiful sunsets are perfect to take a date or your wife or both. LOL Food quality is top notch and the service is the best if you ask for Thomas. Just keep this place to yourself and only tell your good friends so this place will stay the best.
