Place recommended by a cousin. Service excellent. Food good but not great. Small with only about 14 tables. Busy on a Friday night but we never felt hurried.

We have been here 10-12 times - always excellent food and service. Great ambiance. My favorite NYC Italian restaurant - and reasonably priced as well!

My husband and I were walking around NYC when we stumbled upon this little gem hidden by Greenwich Village. We had calamari that was excellent and both enjoyed our meals as well. If we were not so stuffed we would have tried the desserts that looked amazing!! Perfect little romantic Italian restaurant.

A group of friends and I started a tradition of celebrating major birthdays at Volare for this reason: it is such a comfortable place. The staff treat you like family, make good recommendations, happy to make what you want. The food is great - not inexpensive but delicious and large portions and well worth what you are paying.

I've been to Volare a number of times and this is definitely a return to restuarant in the village. It's a nice little place with excellent food and impecable service, the kind of place you'll want to spend a few hours over dinner. I've never seen a menu when there, it's more a whatever and however you want something they... More

What's not to love, great Italian food combined with excellent service. This is an old school family Italian restaurant. When you step inside expect to be treated like family because that is how Sal is going to treat you. Volare has a good wine selection from Italy and the US. My friend had the Osso Buco which was excellent and... More

Volare has been my favorite Italian restaurant for years now. The food is always wonderful and the staff is very welcoming. Most of the time we don't order from the menu, just what we are feeling for that night. The warm antipasto is amazing! It mixes clams, shrimp, calamari and lobster tails. My favorite dish is the veal milanese. It... More

I have been coming here for years and I love to take the out-of-town set. Firstly, Vo's is old school Italian. You can always get what you want as they will make whatever you ask for. The drinks are goldfish bowls and the staff, friendly and competent. Always a go to restaurant.. Try it.

My husband and I came across this restaurant one night and what a wonderful discovery that was. We've been back several times since then. This is a reliable restaurant for wonderful food, gracious service in an adult atmosphere.
