Volare had good food, fast friendly service and great desserts. My wife and I thought the gnocchi was incredible! Seating outside is enjoyable.

Here for midweek lunch with another couple. Delicious seafood and pasta entrees. Very nice menu, very helpful waitress. Decor is a little extravagant, a little over the top, but still nice. Very pleased.

We arrived, and there was an offer for valet. The spots for parking were close so we chose not to use it. We entered the location and I noticed that all was dark, dark woods and smoked glass in the location. The bar was to the left and we went in for a drink to meet our friends. I had... More

In some ways, Volare has the look of a tired, outdated Italian restaurant. The interior is not the most inviting. However, the food and service was inviting. We started by making our own antipasti platter of cheeses and sides. We selected three cheeses and appropriate accompaniments. The grana padano and pecorino sardo were stars. The olives, peppers and sun-dried tomatoes... More

We go to Volare about once a month and find the food and service to be very good and consistent. I love the Veal Vesuvio and it is always prepared very tender which is difficult for this type of dish.

I ended up here on a recent business trip. We had asked about options in the area for Italian food, and this place was one of three that were recommended. I tried one of the other two as well, and I think this place was the best of the two. Still not incredible Italian, but very good, and I would... More

I have been to Italy so I can say what I had to eat was comparable and authentic. I had the black pasta with seafood. The staff was very nice and patient with our special needs son and when my son's father knocked over a full glass of water, they were all Johnny on the spot to help us clean... More

I am compelled to write after a dreadful evening tonight at Volare. We waited at the door for 4 minutes for the hostess to arrive and seat us, we were shown to a table (without an apology for waiting) and not given menus. When our waiter came over he asked if we would like drinks and we said we would... More
