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

The food was wonderful. I had the pork shank and risotto and it was superb. The best risotto I have ever had. The staff was extremely nice and friendly. They treat you like family. The building and decor was really nice. The only thing I would say that they could imporve is the lighting; It was a little dark. They... More

We had an excellent dining experience. Upscale but very relaxed atmosphere. Our waiter was very professional and attentive as was the rest of the staff. Food was fantastic. Started with the calamari, and had the veal medalions which were very tender and delicious. We'll definitely be back the next time we're visiting this part of Chicago.

Just went to Volare for the first time because a old friend was singing in the lounge. We ended up eating in the lounge so that we could hear 2 sets. So, Volare will sometimes have live entertainment. Although they were very busy in the restaurant, lounge, and special occasion room, the server was attentive, very courteous, and the food... More
