Volare Restaurant has been around for at least 10 years in Brenham. It is housed in a "saltbox" style building, which we don't usually think of housing an Italian restaurant. But, the food is very Italian and very tasty. They have a surprisingly well stocked wine selection and have managed to turn the saltbox style interior into a chic Italian... More

This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper at the Murskie Homestead. The menu was varied and the food was delicious. It was a decidedly upscale experience without outrageous prices.

Loved the ravioli di formaggio and pollo parmiggiana extremely tasty and well made, some of the younger staff seemed a little clueless however I understand that everyone has to start somewhere. Overall a great atmosphere with polite staff and good food.

A disappointment, even after recommendation! Celebrating a late Dec. wedding anniversary in Jan. & a lover of great Italian; Volare sadly was a disappointment. The Calamari appetizer was served semi-cold, no seasoning & chewy. The bread basket came before the house side salad-the rolls were warm & the salad fresh & crunchy. Main course-lacking of flavor, warmth & appearance. Tried... More

I have had 1 out of 3 good experiences at this restaurant in less than a year. The first time, my friend and I were the only people there during our lunch. The second time I went to apply for a job there and I waited for over an hour just to be greeted. Too busy to actually come to... More

While in Texas for the week before thanksgiving, we visited Volare twice with family. Being locals they gave me some selection advice which I duly ignored and went for the Pollo Parmigiana, looking for something like I favoured back home in Australia. Unfortunately it was rather bland and dry, so not overly impressed. But my rating is 4 stars ???... More

The food and service were good at this Italian resteraunt. I also liked the fact that the wine list gave you the option to purchase half-bottles.

My wife and I had dinner here with two other couples a few nights ago. Turned out to be a bad experience, again. Just when I think they have their problems solved, they find a new way to mess up! Fried Calamari was tasteless! Don't bother with this dish here. Veal piccata was OK but uninspired. This dish can be... More
