Inspired by (and named after) the Tuscan hilltop town in which chef-owner Don Curtiss and his wife Michelle Quisenberry were married, Volterra is a contemporary Italian eatery in the historic Ballard neighborhood. Surrounded by old brick buildings on a tree-lined street, the restaurant has a small seasonal terrace and an interior designed with bright red walls, contemporary paintings, dark wood furniture, and a variety of chandeliers and sconces carved by Volterran artisans. Chef Curtiss personally selects the fresh available ingredients to incorporate into house-made pastas and charcuterie as well as entrées like wild boar tenderloin with gorgonzola mustard sauce.
