I have eaten there several times as Volta is my daughter's favorite place. The food is top quality, not overpriced and tastes good. The service has always been prompt and makes you feel "at home".

My "lunch bunch" and I visit Volta at least once a week. Their wraps and pizzas are wonderful. Their hummus is the best I have ever tasted. I often get a container to take home for the rest of the week. The service is outstanding.

We stopped in after a long day of shopping and visiting and enjoyed a wonderful dinner with just the girls. Margaritas were the best. Pimento cheese and pitas were just perfect.

One of my all time favorite places for 12 years! Great for lunch or dinner, salads or soup, margaritas or beer. Whatever you are feeling that day, Volta has something tasty to offer!
