They had one of my favorite salmon dishes crusted in cashews. They removed it last Mother's Day weekend but if given a few days notice will prepare for you. I had the Sea Bass last time I was there and it was very good. Great bar area too!

I am retired and got one of those free meals with seminar things. Well to my surprise the wine I purchased went excellently with the Lasagna and Ravioli we had for dinner. Unfortunately my wife is gluten free and only the salad was what she could eat. The Lasagna was very good and would lure me back to try their... More

I have been there for dinner. Even I had no reservation after a short waiting time I got a nice table. The owner family was very polite and friendly and made sure that I felt comfortable! Food. I had pasta with seafood. It was so spicy that it was too hot for me. But all fresh and the quality seemed... More

This is my fall-back restaurant in Louisville. If you want to be certain that every guest will find something that they will love, that the service will be great, that the ambience will be conducive to whatever mood you are in, this is the place. The sea bass is their specialty and they are not kidding on this--it is awesome.... More

Great experience at Volare tonight! Waiter went beyond the call of duty checking on a wine that met our needs and the sea bass and osso bucco were delicious. While obviously very busy, the service was attentive, friendly and extremely helpful.

Whenever we are in Louisville, Volare is on our itinerary. Started dining here in 2012 and have been back every year since (some times twice). Why try any other place when Volare offers the best of everything. Food, service and ambiance are "second to none"! And the staff is professional and friendly. We always get a warm greeting from Tarek,... More

We happened by this restaurant by accident. A small café we were going to try was closed and this was within walking distance. The weather was frigid and we were hungry so we gave it a shot although we were not looking to eat heavy that night. We were greeted by friendly staff, directed to a table, and service was... More

I love this restaurant. Service is great. The food is so full of flavor. They do this special occasion dessert 'apple' made from sugar. You break it open with your spoon and cake and fruit falls out. Valet parking too. Great wine selection too. Just great meals every time we go.

This restaurant was perfect for our anniversary dinner. We got an early table and enjoyed the quiet early in the evening. The service was wonderful - including the free valet parking and the heated alcove near the front door. Staff was attentive and professional in every way. We enjoyed the scallops appetizer - remarkable! The sea bass and salmon dinner... More
