In the heart of SoMa, few steps away from Westfield San Francisco Centre, Volta is bringing us an elegant French vibe.

The great duo Umberto Gibin and executive chef Steffan Terje, already well known for Perbacco and Barbacco in the Financial District, are coming back with a change of direction, like the name of the restaurant suggests (from Latin, a turning point, a change) Volta is a contemporary French restaurant, with delicious lunch and dinner menus and a great wine list, open seven days a week.

Volta is under the design guidance of Cass Calder Smith Architecture (who also designed the duo's other two restaurants), the finest details amidst the huge windows warming up the experience, the style is elegant, minimal and extremely geometric.  The beautiful blue tiles are a pop of color in an extremely lofty environment.
