Interesting atmosphere and good food (pasta with wild mushrooms), but really noisy. Server was very competent.

Took my dad (recreational pilot) who was visiting from out of town, and 4 other family members. My mom said, “it was one of the best experiences she’s had in a long time”. We all had such a fantastic experience and the food was top notch! If someone thinks the prices are high, take into account the ambience with being able to see the planes/jets right in front of you (patio seating). We will definitely be back!!

A little loud but if you sit outside you have to expect that to be the case.

We have introduced many friends and family to Volanti, as it has become one of our favorite places. We've never had a bad meal, and have loved the creativity and freshness of their food. We actually had our holiday company party there because we love the food and the ambiance. We highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner. It's just a fun place to eat and watch the planes take off and land!

My husband and I unfortunately cannot leave Volanti a good review. We were sadly disappointed. We decided to go their on Valentine's day because the restaurant was not advertising a Valentine's day menu and the restaurant had gotten pretty good reviews (My husband and I are not big Valentine's Day people). I had visited other restaurant websites and they advertised that there was a special Valentine's day menu or when I went to go make the reservation, it noted on the reservation that you had to order from the Valentine's Day menu (therefore we did not make reservations at those restaurants because that is not what we were looking for). For Volanti, I did not see anything advertised on their website and when I went to go make the reservation there was nothing on the reservation that noted that there was a different menu for Valentine's Day. When we got to the restaurant for our reservation, we were disappointed to see papers taped up all over the building advertising their Valentine's Day Menu. My husband and I wanted to be respectful of our reservation that we made so we still went inside. My husband and I's take aways were that the food was very overpriced and also not very good. For $55 I got of few sprigs of spinach with a few sliced strawberries (something anyone can make), I got a chicken dish that was not very appealing to look at and was lacking something "special", and then my husband and I also had to share the dessert which was not a very moist or memorable thin slice of chocolate cake. For $55, I would have liked to have a better and more impressive menu. I also felt deceived that the restaurant was not upfront with their Valentine's Day fixed price menu like all the other restaurants in the area that we looked at were. The staff however, was friendly.

I have eaten here before and love the fact that the restaurant is on the runway. However, this time, a large jet sat with its tail pointed at the patio door of the restaurant and blasted us with noise and fumes. What I did not know was that Scottsdale is international and has a customs office which sits just below the restaurant. So, every time a plane has to clear customs, the restaurant will be blasted with noise and fumes. And, this went on for at least 15 to 20 minutes. As much as I love aviation, this experience ruined our lunch. Sadly, there is no way for me to know when this will happen so I do not know if I will go back.

What a gem! Loved sitting at the bar and watching the planes come in. Even more fun to look up their tail numbers to see who owns them! Can't wait to come back.

Volanti is one of our favorites. Probably go 2-3 times a month. Food great, prices and services great, view of planes taking off and landing provides entertainment. What's not to like!!

The food was decent— and the great fries were worth the calories --but it's the runway views and airy atmosphere that make this place a find. Watching the small jets and private planes land and takeoff is a fun break from Scottsdale's typical cactus-and-tile backdrops.

As always, the food and service were great! The wild mushroom burger, tuna sandwich, and chicken pesto sandwich all were delicious. There was a lot of activity on the tarmac, which made for some fun viewing. Always fresh produce and well-prepared meals.

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 ...

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
