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 offerings, but done more delicately than you'd get in another Italian restaurant.

Most reviews for Volterra are very good. My husband and I went during restaurant week and although we enjoyed ourselves and found the service very good, there were a couple of disappointments. One is that it is noisy - OK, so it was restaurant week - but I know it is popular and probably noisy other times as well. (This... 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 staff have been friendly and capable, and have made very good wine recommendations. They have... 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 lamb meatballs, the feather light eggplant pouches, and anything with mushrooms. And the wine list... More

This was a special birthday dinner. We let the waiter guide us with suggestions. All five of us loved everything we ate. Would go there again if I am in the area. Highly recommend.
