I am not sure why everyone raves about this place. It seems that people equate ginormous portion sizing to good food. Pasta is way beyond over cooked and marinara sauce is straight from a can. Antipasti was also a mixture of various olives and artichokes...More

Go here and get the veal Parm and bring plenty of wine! Excellent staff, fantastic dishes and fresh food. This is truly a neighborhood gem and the one place that brings me back to Atlantic city.

Waitress rattled off the menu like a diner waitress reading a menu, Lily Tomlin like. So quick, impersonal, not with any description. Prior visits the owner or one of the brothers described everything answered questions, talked personally to you. Now the food, it was home...More

Chef Vola didn't live up to the hype...it surpassed it!. Old school Italian restaurant in the basement of a house and the furniture probably hasn't changed in 50 years...and you know what...it's perfect! Servers were delightful with great recommendations and the food was delicious. The...More

Food is some of the best in AC. The veal is so tender and tasty. Portions are big, so don't over order. One appetizer for two is plenty with entries and one dessert for two. BYO and cash only. Noisy and crowed. but who cares...More
