    I’ve been to Vucania twice in the last month. It’s possibly the best spot in Mammoth, and definitely the best Italian. The food is ALWAYS good, no matter what you order. The vibe is cool, the portions are great. The fish is always good, the pizza is fantastic, it’s just solid. And it’s a really fun place to hang out. I do not drink alcohol anymore but friends I’ve gone with love the cocktails. I’ve gotten the same server twice-named Ella- and she is excellent. You will not get in without a reservation. At least I never have, it it is worth planning for. Great spot.

    Salads were tasty and good portion although pricey. Server seemed a bit overwhelmed at times when room filled up. Need to change up the wine glasses from low balls to stem wine glasses. Bread was ok but a bit dry. Best to serve with olive oil and vinegar on side and perhaps have pizza dough type rolls ? Octopus was excellent, shrimp in the scampi was great but pasta and pesto sauce was underwhelming , chicken parm was excellent, wine selection and tastes were excellent,

    This was our first time at Vulcania and it did not disappoint! Everything we ordered was delicious. The calamari appetizer was very unique with a combination of flavors and maybe the best we have ever had. The Parmesan churros on the Caesar salad were to die for. Lamb bolognese ravioli was fantastic and our kids loved the cheese pizza. We will be back next time we are in Mammoth!

    Don't waste you money. The service and flavors were ok, but other than that, not worth it. The waitress told us the dishes were meant for sharing. However it's not easy to share 5 small ravioli and at $26 that isn't even funny. They also charged us $14 for three pieces of crusty bread and pesto. Then they would not accept our Ikon Passes for the promised discount, even though this restaurant is owned by Mammoth Mountain. Overall, this place was a huge disappointment and it felt like we were being gouged.

    Some things were really good, some were just okay, and some were bad. Standouts were the calamari and spicy tuna and lamb ravioli. Shredded salad their take on spaghetti o’s are nice. The turkey tetrazzini was not good. Very salty and I’m sure the turkey skin was meant to be crispy but it wasn’t at all and was a real turnoff. Expected more for the price point.

    Beautiful but still casual atmosphere, busy place, mixed feelings on the food. Good specialty cocktails (not as sweet as the standard versions). Prosciutto mozzarella appetizer was so delicious and quality; the accompanying rolls were not fresh, texture not the hearty European style expected, but more like stale Parker house. We were starving and ate every crumb anyway. Turkey tetrazzini was more of a riff on the classic. Was good but not nearly as good as my homemade version! The “gnocchetti” (I think they called them) were really more like tiny conchigliette as opposed to the expected dumplings/gnocchi. Mushrooms were yummy, but without the classic cheese sauce. Not overly expensive (for Mammoth) so no actual complaints here. Did the job and great server!

    Absolutely loved it. The only star missing is because the timing of the food was off. They brought things out too fast and in an off order, ex. our mains came before one of the appetizers.

    Mammoth so so so needed this place! So happy they are here. Great food, service, and ambiance. We ate here twice on a three night trip. We shared at least ten different dishes over the two nights and all four of us really enjoyed everything. Servers gave great recs and are knowledgeable abt the menu. Tasty cocktails too. Make reservations. Only minor complaint is the parking across the street - pretty pricey and inconvenient but not the fault of the restaurant. I suspect most don’t actually pay via the app but we are rule followers/suckers lol.

    Service was great, but they try and turn tables VERY quickly, and considering the price tag on the meal, it is pretty annoying. Pizza was over cheesed and under cooked and the branzino was awful - flavorless and limp.

    We came here for an early dinner after a day on the slopes. It was a fantastic way to end the day. We got seated in our own outdoor “gondola” which was very cozy and our 4 year old was very excited about. Service was wonderful and each recommended dish was delicious. The Voltaggi-ohs and ravioli were the stars.

    Quick, excellent service. Food more hit and miss than expected at these prices. Spicy tuna salad and Pumpkin Pie pizza were outstanding. Fungi pizza overly gooey with too much Fontina. Broccolini tasty but fried to the point of being slick with grease. Generous beverage portions. We'll come back for sure, and just ask more questions about prep of menu items before ordering.

    Our server Sam was amazing!! The booking process could be better. OpenTable won't allow you to book more than a 4-top, so i called the restaurant and left them a message to book a 6-top. They didn't call back after 48hrs, so I called and left them another message. They didn't call back, so Ii called and left them another message. After another 48hrs they didn't call back, so my friend and I each booked a reservation on OpenTable for a 3-top on the same date and time. I called again and left them a message to see if they could combine our reservations into one 6-top. Never got a call back from all the messages I left and they never pick up the phone even during opening hours. When we arrived in Mammoth, I went to the restaurant and they were able to combine the reservation. They need to call back given their outgoing message says to leave them a message and they will call you back or indicate that you shouldn't leave a message.

    Food was Excellent!!! Vibe was great as well. We went two nights in a row. The first evening we sat at a table and our server was definitely bland. Not friendly but not terrible. Not too attentive but, not terrible. Definitely would have been a 5 star experience if the service from our server was better! Day two we sat at the bar for drinks and dinner. Received better service from the bar staff. Overall, definitely recommend! Everything we had was delicious.

    Had the Tricolore salad and the Margherita pizza. Asked for the crust to be on the crispier side. Beautiful fragrant EVOO in the salad dressing - could smell it straight away. The dressing worked beautifully with the radicchio, Belgian endive and arugula, all of which were very fresh. The pizza crust was lightly salted, had great chew, and didn't get soggy from the tomato sauce. Speaking of which, the sauce was well-balanced, with just the right amount of garlic for my taste. Beautiful fresh while basil leaves on top. Would absolutely have those 2 dishes again.

    Came here with our adult kids. Excellent food, great service. The calamari was surprisingly good with the banana peppers and sea beans. We had to try the Voltaggio’s, and they did not disappoint. The sauce on the pasta was my favorite of the night, thicker and milder than the sauce on the meatball. The meatball was great, not spicy and not overly breaded. Excellent tasting and giant! Would highly recommend.

    This place was great! The food came out SO fast & it was hot and delicious. The broccolini was legit the best we’ve had - super lemony & crispy. The hangar steak was tender and savory. It was not cheap by any means BUT when you leave that happy, it’s worth it after a 8 hour ski day

We also had craft Manhattans and a bottle of Titus Zinfandel, exceptional. Very happy Mammoth has another worthy restaurant to come back to. Everyone please support them!

    They advertise as a find Italian restaurant by a James Beard awardee and Michelin star chef brothers, that may be. The pizza was average and our appetizer was blah. Our cocktails were great as was our waiter. I would return if I am hungry for pizza, just expected better offerings as an Italian restaurant.
