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

Had the rib eye steak and shared a bottle of Jordan Cabernet. Wonderful dinner with my wife and good friends.

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

As small as Brenham is, it plays host to many hungry travelers as an antiquing capital, and as a result has more good eateries than one would expect. Most offer first rate country cooking and comfort goods. But for a romantic evening, Volare is the place. The old house it occupies is well appointed and the service is attentive and... More
