Once again, Vola's continues to impress. Got reservations for 4 at 7:30 on a Thursday for my friend's 40th birthday. Seated downstairs, which was tight, but doable. Service and food were outstanding, as usual. Eating leftover clams and pasta right now and it is just as delicious if not better than when I ordered it. Friend got the snapper with... More

As past reviewers have mentioned it is "quaint" but homey. All guests were very friendly and it wasn't too load as to not here our own table easily. Everything, from the bread, salad and meal, was delicious. Everyone at the table tried something different and all were very satisfied. And the desserts, out of this world. Definitely making this a... More

I have been a “yuuge” fan of Chef Vola and came here to celebrate a very special five year anniversary with some family members and a close friend. Through the years I have marveled at the veal parm chop and have been less critical about the small things such as the crowded seating, sometimes rude staff and average menu items... More

Had a wonderful experience at Chef Vola. Squeezing into our table for 2 on the porch, we immediately met our neighboring table. Their first words to us - Pass your wine glasses and try our wine. That is the atmosphere that this BYOB offers. Yes, you will still be able to just talk to those at your own table :)... More

Excellent food and service. Quaint, crowded atmosphere with a true Italian Family vibe. Try the angel hair with clam sauce and sea bass...unbeatable

We were lucky enough to be invited to a business dinner there. A restaurant run out of a basement you would never know there was a restaurant inside. We were served family style starting out with prosciutto wrapped mozzarella with roasted red peppers and salad, pasta with meat, clam and red sauce and for dinner were fortunate enough to be...

We were three siblings and spouses looking for a place to have dinner in the Atlantic City area. One had heard that Chef Vola's was the best Italian restaurant in NJ. We were lucky to get a reservation on a Tuesday night in October, we had heard that you can wait two months for one in the summer. The restaurant... More

Recently ate at Chef Vola's for the 2nd time with a bigger party and they did not disappoint. Took us in right away at our res. time and was graciously greeted by EVERYONE. Our party of 4 ordered a bunch of different dishes and each was as good as the other. People say that it is overpriced or what have... More

We made reservations for a Thursday night about 3 weeks in advance for 7:00 and it was no problem. The way it worked was you call, and if someone answers in the evening you'll be told to call back in the morning and leave a message. When you get the call back, hopefully you'll get your desired date and time.... More

I dined here during a girls weekend to AC. We got a table on pretty short notice it but it was a Sunday night. The only thing I didn't like it we were required to order so much food (app/salad/entree combo) because of the amount of people we had. I didn't realize they had a minimum order which was really...
