Wonderful dinner here. Had a great table inside the bar area. Staff is efficient, always ready to serve you, and they are some of the nicest people you'll meet. Food is excellent and drinks are amazing. Definitely a place I don't think twice about making dinner reservations with. Looking forward to my next return.

Went to Volterra during restaurant week and was my first time there. Food was very good but the dessert wasn't that impressive. Would definitely return.

We just loved our experience and we will definitely be back and recommend your restaurant to friends. The food selection was great and our meals were wonderful. We had several appetizers in addition to our main entries. We took leftovers home and enjoyed them for lunch the next day. 😀

Volterra did a great job again. There three course menu is great value without sacrificing the quality of the food. It is like having restaurant week available all the time. The tiramisu is always amazing way to end the meal.

I love the mushroom polenta! Always delish. As was the tagliatelle bolognese. However, I am sad the lamb meatballs were taken off the menu. The host that evening was very gracious and professional. Inside, all the PPE protocol is in place. The outside seating is very odd. There are just a few 2-tops right in front of parking spaces. Not really conducive to conversation.

Volterra was the perfect restaurant to celebrate my wife’s Birthday! Our waiter, Jim, was so pleasant and knowledgeable!! The food exceptional!
And, though the COVID paradigm was obviously in place, it didn’t feel like it once we were seated. Thanks for a wonderful evening!
