After meandering around Ballard this afternoon, my husband and I stopped into Volterra for lunch. We were seated out on the patio which was lovely on a nice summer Seattle day. I am a photographer and pay a lot of attention to light... it was beautiful out there.
The food was decent. I had the Ceasar Salad (asked for chicken and they said they only have whole chickens, yet my husband's dish had minced chicken...), and he had the Chicken Bowtie Pasta. My salad was unremarkable, pretty much like any other salad I've had elsewhere. The bowtie pasta wasn't great either, although I must say that the asparagus was cooked perfectly.
I may come back at some point to give dinner a shot, but definitely not lunch. Our waiter was extremely busy and therefore unattentive.
