"Great wait staff, everyone was friendly. Surprised that there were not more people dining there! Recommend it to all friends."

"Great! too hot to eat outside on this visit but will enjoy the large outdoor eating area on cooler evenings. nice wine list with varied style & price options; bartender very knowledgeable on wines. We'll be back!"

"If you like bruschetta, you have to try La Volta's. It was the best I ever had. The entrees were good as well. We liked the place and intend to visit again soon."

"Great new spot for downtown, right on Fayetteville St. Lots of food for the price. Wine cellar is in the old vault of bank, hence the name---La Volta. Nice attentive wait staff and knowledgeable. Very tasty!"

La Volta Opens On Fayetteville Street Downtown
by Greg Cox, News & Observer

On Fayetteville Street near City Plaza, the name of newcomer La Volta Italiano (411 Fayetteville Street; 838-8700; pays witty tribute to its location on the ground floor of the Progress Energy building. There's nothing particularly shocking about the traditional Italian menu, though, which some may recognize as a joint creation of owner Mario Longo and executive chef Vinny Doria, longtime veterans of the local Italian restaurant scene.

The biggest surprises, given the upscale setting and prime location, are the affordable prices. Most entrees are in the $12-$15 range, and even ambitious fare such as pan-seared halibut with fig glaze will set you back less than $20.

Amping up La Volta's attraction are a full bar (including an Italian-leaning wine list) and an expansive sidewalk patio that affords a front-row view of any entertainment staged on City Plaza.
