Evening with friends

Very nice atmosphere, nice selection to the menu. I wish there would of been full bar selection instead of just beer/wine. Everyone enjoyed their meals except one person who had the salmon dish. Little over cooked and dry.

The ONLY Italian restaurant in Brenham -- because they're the best (there have been other Italian restaurants in the past who've gone out of business -- can't hold a candle to Volare's). If you want excellent food AND atmosphere, this is the place for you. They cater and also sell gift certificates.

Food was very good but the service was lacking. The appetizer was brought with the salad but we waited 5 minutes for utensils. The couple with us never received their wine. A couple at the next table got frustrated and left after their salad. The place is very busy but just not enough staff.

Good ambiance and service. I ordered the day's special and it was delicious. Pricing is just right. I didn't get the chance to see the wine list but ordered wine nonetheless. It was ok.

We have dined at Volare's on several occasions when we venture to Brenham for a getaway weekend. I would say that the food is consistently average. Its not bad, its not great, its just in the middle. The wine list is also average with above average prices. We realized on our first visit we could bring our own wine, which... More

we've been coming here for years. The service can be spotty and the waitstaff inexperienced, but the food is always consistently good. The sauces are all unique and very tasty and the portion sizes are generous!

This is a wonderful Italian Restaurant in downtown Brenham, Tx.. They offer a broad selection of freshly prepared dishes and a large selection of wines. The wines seem a bit over priced to me... The staff are courteous and attentive and made relevant recommendations on our meal and wine choices. I would consider this a $$$ restaurant since two entrees,... More

We were excited about visiting Volare's as we had heard the food was good; however, we were very disappointed in our dining experience. The salad that was served had brown edges around the lettuce. Our entrees were a pasta in Alfredo sauce which had zero, not some, zero seasoning. My husband ordered pollo parmigianna which the chicken must have been... More
