    Was excited to try - but food wasn’t awesome and the portion sizes, were described as shared, were huge. Broccolini was not great we had one bite, and given price of everything they should have removed it from the bill. All food was extremely rich. The stand out was ice cream and zeppoles for dessert. Definitely LA prices without LA quality food. We were also rushed along through every course.

    They turn a lot of people away and are reservation based. But every time we have gone we saw multiple tables sit there empty when they could have turned them. Food is soooo good and great service. Let walkins happen

    Near impossible to get a reservation even weeks in advance. For its popularity one would expect a better experience. The food was good. Two dishes - Brocollini and caprese (mozzarella) excessively salted though. Primary complaint was that we felt rushed by the waitstaff, as if they were under orders to get each seating in and out under an hour. We ordered drinks, appetizers and mains. The appetizers came out within 10 minutes. The mains came out 10 minutes later. Even consciously trying to slow down and enjoy our meal, we were done within 40 minutes. We could have ordered dessert or another drink to take our time, but the crowd of people standing near the entrance ruined the ambience anyway and contributed to the feeling of being rushed. The food is good but overall wouldn’t be in a rush to return.

    Vulcania never disappoints. We are thankful to have a quality place here in Mammoth.On this particular occasion the service was a little disjointed with items coming out at random times to various people in our party but it was still overall a great experience.

    Most food was amazing including octopus, panini sandwich, scrimp scampi, and dark chocolate gelato with beignets. However the pumpkin pie pizza was a huge disappointment because the kale was charred to the point of ash and tasted acrid. Also, the menu described butternut squash as a featured ingredient, but there was only a thin spread near the crust and was barely noticeable. I had my husband taste the pizza because it tasted bad to me, and he found it to be inedible. He requested our waitress to return it because of the kale ash, and she returned to tell us that the pumpkin pie pizza was correctly prepared and to order something else. By that time my husband had finished his entree so I passed. My husband and I are huge fans of the brothers, but they weren’t there and the service was young, inexperienced, and disingenuous. Overall, we felt like we wouldn’t want to return ☹️

    Not great Italian in Mammoth in the Village. Pricey, pretty average food. We had octopus appetizer - not good flavor in octopus, gnocci was good, Rigatoni - quite good, and shrimp scampi - below average. We also had some sort of deconstructed cannoli which was not good. Service was good. Options are limited in Mammoth, so it tends to be busy. Drinks were good.

    Finally a new eatery in Mammoth Lakes with good food and happy ambience. It's not in any way replacing Nevados (which we miss dearly), but this is a place you can go to each and every day and not get tired of the great pizzas, delicious Cesar's salad and not to miss, best calamaris we've ever had. Cocktails are great too. But you better make a reservation for this place gets busy - even on weeknights.

    All the food dropped at the same time. Server did not course it out. After we were done, food sat on the table for 10min before the server came to check on us, said she’d bus the table, and never did. When the name Voltaggio is attached to a restaurant I expected so much better service. Oh and I had 1 drink, wanted another, but no one ever asked.

    We’ve eaten here multiple times during our last four trips to mammoth and every time the food has been amazing! It’s a great place with fantastic food. The location is perfect at the village. We always make a reservation because it is usually packed. We’ve never canceled a reservation and we’ve never once been late. The only downside is the front entrance staff who are not super friendly and continue to put families with children (who have reservations) banished to the back corner of the restaurant near the restroom entrance. We’re a family of 3 and our son is 8. This last time we dined with reservations and the restaurant was near empty (early dinner time 5:15-5:45); yet they tried to seat us at the last table directly next to the restroom entrance. We asked to move and they gave us a table 2 spots away but still near the back of the restaurant and close to the bathrooms. Husband and I were chuckling because last time before it was the same thing. We started looking around at the empty front half and the packed back half - all families with kids. We ate wonderful food, drinks and of course the homemade dessert (yum) and finished our meal before most of the tables in the front area were even seated. I think we were out of there before 6:30? It’s bummer that you’re treated differently because you have a kid in tow. Parents have good taste too and shouldn’t be punished for bringing their kid to experience great cuisine.

    I love this place and will continue to make it a go to dinner stop when we come to mammoth but they really need to change their bread policy. 10 dollars for 3 pieces of bread should be illegal when they’re not serving enough bread with their other dishes. Also they need to get proper wine glasses - they claim the glasses are traditional Italian glasses; they are not. Just need those 2 things to be leveled up and it would be perfect :)

    In our opinion the food portions were small. We have been there twice now and in both visits the kitchen was unyielding in making any changes to our meals, as in adding vegetables to a dish. We were told dishes are prepared as listed on the menu with no substitutions. The other issue we've had in both visits is our meals came approximately 10 to 15 minutes apart. We also noticed a table next to us had the same issue with the meals not being served at the same time. Our advice would be to be prepared to not ask for any substitutions and ask the server to bring the meals at the same time. I would recommend the restaurant only because there is no other food option like it in the Village.

    The changes to the menu - especially what was an exceptional Cesar salad w/black garlic sauce were very disappointing. We had been to Vulcania several times since it opened last winter and loved the elevated offerings- something the village area sorely needed. Unfortunate that the menu seems to have been changed to appeal to the masses and it now feels more like an overpriced chain restaurant.

    I never ever complain nor have I ever not left a tip in my 40 years. But the service was beyond horrible. We had a 4:45 reservation to avoid the rush and were still neglected. We couldn’t get refills of water. Couldn’t order wine. Couldn’t get fresh plates between courses. No clue where our waitress was. The manager did try to make it right by comping some items. But it was our daughter’s birthday and she never got her dessert. Won’t be back.

    We had a 5:30 reservation for three and were seated quickly and had a great attentive waiter. We ordered the broccolini, spaghetti, rigatoni, and a pizza, along with a few cocktails. EVERYTHING was delicious and came in good timing. We were told by our waited that they serve food in a family share style with plates coming out a bit staggered which we thought was great since we all wanted to try a bit of everything. We got the tiramisu and ice cream with donut balls for dessert and it too was great! We will be back!

    The food was decent, but the table lay out made the entire evening horrible. Our table (as most of the others, unless you’re by the window) are part of the only walk way around the restaurant. Our chairs kept getting hit and walked in to. So if you’re looking for a relaxing dinner. You won’t get it here. They need to redesign the layout. For the chaos you have to endure, the food wasn’t worth it.

    Food was EXCELLENT! Restaurant was full when we arrived for our 8:15 reservation we were seated right away but it took awhile for our waitress to come. At the end of our evening the tea was sparse and we couldn’t find our waitress to ask for a to go box. We had to go ask for one at the bar.

    The pizza (Salumi) both of the salads (Tricolore and Shredded) and the Risotto (Milanese) were all outstanding. The Chicken Parmesan is unusual (not traditional) with a weird cream sauce they call "aerated parmesan". The dish was bland, overpriced at $40 and just not good. Everything else was outstanding and I know we will be back.
