I enjoy stopping in at Volterra for a quick bite in the bar along with a great glass of red wine. They do some delicious appetizers, my favorite is the polenta with wild mushrooms. Dinner is a real delight as well - some standard Italian...More

Good, fresh and tasty food. The place is nice, but was a bit too noisy (quite crowded and lots of noise)

Volterra is an upscale neighborhood family restaurant with excellent atmosphere, service and a fantastic menu. A great place for a personal or a business meal. It has a small but full service bar. My family, friends and business associates love this place and the staff.

This is a nice little atmospheric place to have a cocktail or dinner. It's a bit small, but they seem to make the most of their space. It's a bit pricey though, although the service is great!

I was there twice - first time during the Seattle restaurant week and then on our anniversary. The food was delicious both times, cozy atmosphere. The second time I ordered Margarita and it wasn't up to our standards.

We were disappointed by the lack of flavor in our gnocchi, the salad was unremarkable, scallops were cooked properly, boar was very tender. The Italian fruitcake was hard enough as to be nearly inedible. The wine was good! Overall we were disappointed.

Volterra has become one of our favorite Kirkland restaurants. We've eaten here a few times, and have never been disappointed. We've enjoyed the crab ravioli, the crab cakes, seafood linguine and the beet and arugula salad, among other dishes, and all have been excellent. The...More

Visit for Happy Hour or dinner! Either way, you will find something outstanding to eat, with spot-on recommendations from staff. The atmosphere is lively, not quiet, but it adds to the festivities. Excellent choice for a couple or with friends. My favorite dishes: the zippy...More

They have numerous menu items that can be ordered gluten free. Check the menu on their website, but there is at least one choice in each category that can be done gluten free. Only the salad section has only one gluten free... More
