Volo Gastronomia - Awesome!

mets31 | Oct 4, 2003 05:50 PM

I stopped by Volo today for the first time and I must say I was very impressed. What a gem! You can really tell when people care about what they do. I had a great panino (Treviso) with speck, taleggio and radicchio. It was nicely pressed on their homemade focaccia bread and the combination of flavors was fantastic. I had a little room left to try some gelato and boy was I glad I did-the hazlenut was the best I ever had-better than in Italy! The gorgeous display cases in the back were filled with some great looking prepared foods like crab cakes, caneloni (spelling?) there was also deli meats like bresola, prosciuto, capocolo and cheeses for sale by the pound. Coffee was outrageous and probably "the best in town" like their sign touts. In short, definately worth a visit. I am not sure if I would drive in from Long Island for it but if you are in Queens stop by. It's feels, smells and tastes like you're in Italy, and a heck of alot cheaper!
BTW I also noticed a Suday brunch menu that I did not give a look at but I may just return tomorrow myself to check it out; I'd bet it's pretty darn good.

Anyone try the prepared foods?
