"My husband and I enjoyed a lovely dinner at Volterra's the other night. My lamb shank was absolutely delicious. My husband's eggplant pillows, however, were a different story. Although he said they tasted good, they had obviously been frozen since they were cold in the middle. Our server apologized and brought us a tiramisu in a box to take home as a gift."

"The food was good, we had the Seattle restaurant special.. Unfortunately my Moscow mule wasn't good at all.. I thought the service was extremely slow even tho the restaurant wasn't crowded.. I did think menu prices were high... Might try again and hope service is better.."

"We each enjoyed the seafood stew and the salads were also very good. We'd go back. The regular menu has a $16.00, 2-course lunch, that includes either soup/salad or desert. There were several more main course options than on the Restaurant Week sheet."

"I have only tried Volterra for brunch, but based on this first experience, I will be back to try lunch and dinner.
We had two different scrambles, but the wild mushroom was my favorite. (although the bacon in the other was spectacular!) Drinks were creative and delicious...and very Italian. For a twist on a screwdriver, try the Italian Orange Juice from the cocktail menu.
Everything was super fresh, and perfectly prepared. I am picky about eggs. They are among my favorite foods, so it really impresses me when a restaurant takes the time to prepare "the perfect egg"...and Volterra has done this.
Service was great. Attentive but not disruptive. My water was never empty, and they definitely know their way around coffee preparation.
For brunch days, this place will definitely go to the top of my list with The Fat Hen."

"In addition to the amazing food and impeccable selection of wines, the craft cocktails that they offer are inventive and delicious, in particular their twist on the classic MARGUERITA. They make their version with tequila, lime juice & Barolo chinato -- simply fabulous!"

"Watch out that you do not fill up on bread! Because everything is very filling. Luckily, it is all yummy reheated. Caesar salad simple but delicious. Butternut squash filled pasta was excellent. I was not impressed with the polenta with mushrooms but loved everything else. Banana bread pudding very tasty the next day warmed up!"

"Recently had lunch with friends at Volterra in Ballard and everything was outstanding, from the pasta dish to the salads. We had cocktails which were perfect, and finished with a different take on bread pudding. Highly recommend. Service was far above average as well."

"I go back to Lecosho often. The food is always delicious and their Happy Hour is one of the best. We had a wonderful waiter named Stephen who was a delight. I went with a friend of mine who also loves Lecosho. She had the pork chop, which sent her over the moon. I had what was described as trout, which when it arrived looked a lot like salmon. I learned something about fish that night - there is a fish called steelhead trout or salmon trout. Whatever its name it was beautifully cooked."

"Across from the Bell Tower on Ballard Ave you'll find Volterra, a neighborhood restaurant with an haute Italian menu, a warm ambiance, and darling deck. We were there for the Dine Around Seattle prix-fixe menu ($33 for 3 courses), and we so happy with our meals. My friend had the butternut squash raviloi with an amazingly velvety and garlicky white sauce. I had the spicy prawns with vari-colored peppers and and green beans. Both were fabulous, as was the best tiramisu ever. Nice wine, too, reasonably priced. We can't wait to come back when the weather is nicer to dine on the deck, and watch the Ballardites go by."

"We ate here as part of the $33 dinner offer by dine around Seattle and it was a great deal. The portion sizes were generous given the 3 course meal. I also appreciated the pacing of the courses. So many dinner deals rush you in and out but we lingered and enjoyed our meal. The greeters and bar tenders were welcoming on the way in and out too!"
