Volante Restaurant in the Minneapolis Minnesota Airport is the future of the restaurant business. When you walk in there are no waiters or visible staff. Just pick out where you want to sit and you are ready to order. Each table or seat at the bar has its own IPod. You tap the screen and you are ready to order.... More

After a horrible couple of breakfasts at Mimosa, I was looking for a new breakfast spot at MSP airport. I think I found my new place at Volante. Ordered a couple of sunny side up eggs over a marinara sauce and some French bread. More than enough for a good meal. Eggs were really well prepared, the food was hit... More

With a long layover in Minneapolis on my way home, and my departure gate being right by Volante, I figured I’d give the restaurant a try. It was pretty full but I found a seat at what appeared to be a four-top table, diagonal from another seated patron. Not having ordered from an iPad, I found it a little confusing... More

Well as you can see from my profile, I think I have only left one other review that wasn't five stars. This place was awful. I am here for a layover. The spaghetti was way way way toooooo spicy. Inedible. The menu said spicy, not burn your mouth. The hamburger my mom ordered was ice cold. We asked for condiments... More

I liked the concept of iPad ordering which was fine until you order an extra item like desert. The request disappeared into the World Wide Web and required two requests of a human to retrieve. Five Guys hamburgers are far superior and when you add the difference in pricing avoid Volant's offering. However, my wife enjoyed her Caprese Salad and... More

Ate here with a business associate while on a trip to Minneapolis. As we sat down we even made a joke about "airport pasta", but surprisingly the food was delicious. I couldn't believe how good it was. The service was decent as well, but we were only two of about 6 people in the whole place. Admittedly, the iPad ordering... More

We stopped in to Volante for a nice dinner prior to our flight to Europe. The seafood pasta was delicious though served a little cool. The waiter quickly returned it to the kitchen & brought it back piping hot with apologies. That good service was a first for me at an airport dining establishment.

Need negative stars for this place! So the first red flag is you are encouraged to order using the ipad at each table/bar stool. Interesting idea, but terrible in execution! My initial order went through, but subsequent additions were hit or miss. I blame the computer ordering system, but really, I'd much rather just say "another beer please". A major... More

Where to start....my friend and I had a long layover and after leaving 90 degree weather in Vegas we were stuck here in 36 degree weather which put me in the mood for soup. We sit down and 15 minutes later are greeted by a server that seemed like his phone was more important tHan his guests. Makes sense because... More

Pizza was served very quickly, but tasted like it had been cooked with a blow torch. The waiter was snooty and disappeared after the pizza was delivered. You tip before being served on the ipad. MISTAKE. I had to go to the bar to get more water.
