  1. Good pastas and those meatballs, but so shriekingly noisy I would not return.

      Ditto about the seriously delicious duck meatballs. And ditto again re: the insanely high noise level which has, like you, kept us from going back. Sad, really, because Andew Carmellini is such a talented chef.

    2. I have been there twice. The first time the food and service was excellent. However, the second time the food was good but the service was totally atrocious.
      I doubt I would return.

      1. I went in June and I remember it being fine. Very dark; not overly noisy. However I don't remember what I ate (and I would, if it had been notable--either terrible or terrific).

        1. I've been back 5 times. Everything is great here...We have the ricotta with grilled bread and duck meatballs to start, antipastis are all great, the pastas are all amazing and perfectly cooked - there was not one thing I disliked about the place. Service was great each time and the noise level didn't affect us too much - maybe it depends on where you are seated. In any event, I highly recommend A Voce.

              Nobody should find it ironic that a restaurant called "A Voce" is, in fact, very loud inside.
