Outstanding, been here many times and it never disappoints. Cash only, BYOB and you can’t go wrong. Veal Sausage app is delicious and I have never had a bad Veal Chop Parm on the bone. If you go to AC and don’t try it it’s...More

The food is very good but too expensive overall. The atmosphere is terrible and service is inconsistent based on if they like you. The mystique of the place is getting in. I dislike that it feels as if they are doing you a favor by...More

This was our 2nd visit to Chef Vola's. Reservations are hard to come by so book well in advance. The building is unassuming, looking like a typical seashore home. A single door opens onto an enclosed porch from which you are greeted and directed upstairs...More

Overrated. You are eating in a basement with a drop ceiling. You have to walk into the kitchen pass the dishwashers to go to the bathroom. But the bathroom is pretty! Service is good. Food is okay.

By reservation only. It was my first visit. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was unique. It is a little loud. Cash only and BYOB. The menu was diverse and the food was excellent. The sides are a la carte. We enjoyed everything about the...More
