I have dined here on several occasions but most recently last Saturday. We take all of our out of town guests here and everyone has loved it and our most recent visit was no exception. The staff are all Italian which makes you think you could almost be in Italy. They are all very friendly and very attentive. We shared... More

The food here is excellent and so is the atmosphere and setting upstairs- very warm and cosy. We loved all our food & would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to eat well in Tauranga.

I have eaten here a few times over the years but never realised about the yummy tapas they do downstairs. I went on a Friday and they have happy hour and it was so yummy the food and with the half price it was so cheap. I would defintely be going back again.

Volare is my favourite restaurant for a good reason. They always have amazing and prompt service and the atmosphere is as warm and comforting as the amazing food. The upstairs seating gives a gorgeous view out over the water and the candlelight and soft overhead lighting gives a lovely romantic feel to the restaurant. I highly recommend the Torta di... More

Monday night in Tauranga is a fairly quiet place to be and many of the restaurants are closed but the colleague I was travelling with had been to the this restaurant previously and recommended us to go there. To be honest, from the street front this restaurant looked like it to may have been closed but as some lights were... More

Later, we went to Auckland and had good Gnocchi at a different restaurant. Also, being indian , for some reason because we decided not to order alcohol, we... More

We come here for special occasions, and every time the service has been faultless, and the food fantastic. The black squid ink pasta is a firm favourite. Will definitely dine here again.

Lovely food and atmosphere, great staff who were regularly checking up on us. It was a Friday night and was quite busy but level of service still excellent.
