VERY GOOD ITALIAN FOOD IN BRENHAM.

One of my favorite local restaurants. I had the Ribeye in a reduced red wine sauce, with pasta and organic salad with vinaigrette. Wonderful meal. Only in Brenham. Great service from Mike my waitperson.

We celebrated our anniversary with a wine tasting and absolutely delicious dinner. The owner was very helpful with our wine selection, and the wait staff superb. Very authentic Italian menu. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

Volare's did not disappoint us. The food was delicious as usual and we will return on our next visit. The portions were well managed and well seasoned.

This is our 2nd visit to Volare, as we do the wildflower run in the Spring. We did make reservations, but they were not necessary. A warm welcome, and immediate seating. We asked to sit at a four-top and we do not like a table for two, and we were immediately seated in a nice corner four-top. Our waiter greeted... More

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.
