A very fine meal at Volterra

volterra_1_halibut_cheeksSometimes you go out and a meal is everything you hope it will be. Such was the case at Volterra recently. Every dish was solid, not in a “Wow, this is life-changing” way, but in a way that made me say on this evening, “Wow, this restaurant knows how to get the food right,” starting with a halibut cheek appetizer.
