Small local place with great food and service...

On the circle by the train station in Rutherford. We used a Groupon and took a chance on a new place to eat with two friends. We were seated promptly at a table of our choice against the back wall and they even kept an eye on my car parked out in front by a meter. The place is small... read more

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant a few months ago. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is charming and the prices are very reasonable. We currently go almost ever week to enjoy the price fix menu. We have also used their catering services, which is impeccable as well. Congrats Denise, you're doing a great job!

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. We were taking the train into NYC and wanted a restaurant nearby. It's right across the street from the train station. It's convenient and the food is even better. The proprietor, Denise, is warm, friendly and accommodating and so is her staff. My favorite dish is the pork Osso Bucco. While it's not... More

Coming back from NYC on a Sunday night, we were lost in Rutherford and stopped for dinner at Volare’s restaurant. Attempting to find a full service restaurant that serves a fresh meal in NJ on a Sunday night can be quiet challenging. As we walked into the restaurant, we were greeted by Denise (Proprietor) and were led to a table... More

Hadn't eaten here in maybe a decade; the room seems warmer with higher-end decor than I remember. It was hard to even look at the regular menu once we saw a 4-course prix fixe menu for $14.95/person, yet how high can the quality be at that price? Well, the mussels appetizer was unexceptional as was my dining companion's eggplant rollatini.... More

Our recent meal at Volare was exquisite. We've visited this family-owned restaurant on numerous occasions and were pleased to find that they have recently renovated and their menu is now above and beyond our expectations. We always order from the Specials Menu and were pleased to sample a salmon dish served with couscous and vegetables and a wonderful ginger sauce.... More

Order the black fettuccine. It's excellent. This place and all restaurants in Rutherford are BYO. Go to Mason Cellar first to pick up one or two bottles to have with dinner.

Food is very good, but only 3 stars for the staff attitude. Long list of specials, maybe over 20 items of appetizers, salads, pastas, and meat & fish. No prices on any of them!! When this was mentioned, the hostess said that "gee nobody else ever asked". WHAT?? So in other words, there was something WRONG with us for wanting... More

Seated at tiny table outside kitchen. Should have been a red flag for disaster. Waitstaff yelled "coming" every time they went in and out of kitchen to avoid crashing into each other. Bad setup. Food had no wow factor. Better meal to be had at Olive Garden. No parking, service lacking, waited 15 minutes in doorway WITH reservation. Would not... More

Small Byob right across from the train station. Seating is rather tight and therefore can be noisy. I felt we were rushed even though no one was waiting to be seated and it was a week night. Food was good but I wasn't wowed by it. It was more affordable when they accepted discount restaurant certificates
