Fabulous fish dish, attentive service

Had never been to Volare before. Recommended by B&B host. Our server was young but very knowledgeable, carefully explaining the type of fish in the special and how the sauce was prepared.

The best Italian food in our area! Beautiful atmosphere and casual dining! The menu is always varied, especially when they have a buffet!

A true Italian restaurant with a real Italian chef. The fresh hot rolls are wonder. Be sure to ask for the oil to be served with the bread. He often has a special of the day.

I ate at Volare. It may be the only restaurant in Brenham. I found the food to be bland (not even spicy) and very mundane. I can rate it no higher than average and that rating is generous.

Very disappointing; has gone down hill; food is ordinary; wait staff is terrible; have no idea about wine. We do not ever plan to return.

Violate is located in a beautiful salt box house not far from the Historic Downtown. Service is excellent and the food is consistently delicious. All the entrees are authentic and delicious and the tiramisu us a perfect ending!!

Such a great place for date night! We often spend our anniversary here enjoying the Italian fare. Love their salad and rolls, and be sure to ask for the olive oil dipping sauce! My faves are the eggplant parmesan and linguine del mare.

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.
