First visit in a long time. This place still has it ! Great Food; Great Owner; Great atmosphere. This is an old time old school italian restaurant from yesteryear. I loved everything about this place. I wish them another 50 years of continued success.

Went with family to celebrate my sister's birthday. We all agreed that the food was outstanding and we would definitely dine there again. 6 of us split a salad (made to serve 4. but perfect for us). We ordered 6 different main courses and everyone enjoyed what they had (and we tasted each other's dishes & liked them all): veal... More

Killer red sauce (or Italian gravy) Great clam sauce , red or white Attentive staff The Not So Good Lobster tail over cooked and tasteless Salad soggy Very Noisy No room to move.

Great food and service. A busy night but staff worked hard and covered multiple tables. Friendly and attentive. Anyone who complains is most likely the type that will never be happy anyway. Top service and food from the second you get there.

Cannot decide what makes this restaurant soooo good. The food is over the top. The service is efficient, professional, and entertaining (who can memorize the 20 dishes that are in addition to the menu?). The place is hard to find and it is not easy to get reservations either - but it is clearly worth the effort.

We were told the portions were big. My Wife and I decided we were going to have a salad and one main dish. We were told each person must order a separate entree'. So we ordered chicken cattcatori which came in sort of a brown sauce and special veal that came in a red sauce . For some reason they... More

Absolutely one of the best kept secrets. Food was amazing, especially the veal. You will definitely not leave there hungry, if you do it's your fault, and dessert is an absolute must (cheesecake)!!!!!!

This place is legit. Maybe the best Italian restaurant, not only in ac, but of all time. The veal chop parm lives up to the expectations. This is a must go, just make sure you call well ahead, like a month for reservations. Bravo. I cannot believe this was my first time after all the times if been to ac... More

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
