I came here with friends, my husband, and my infant son. The food and service were great. The only downside was that I felt it was a bit cramped. The lighting was also SUPER dark which makes managing an infant a little bit difficult. Otherwise,...More

Excellent in every aspect. Assisted In finding a great wine from their extensive wine list, waiter was right on spot, didn’t miss a step. Food was really true Italian. We enjoyed their Signature Insalata di Mare which had to be a pound of seafood. We...More

4 of us went here for dinner and it was nice. Food was good, service was good, atmosphere was good. Noisy (some tables noisier than others). I think that the waitstaff works together which can result in misses such as the table not being cleared...More

This is authentic Italian at is best. I had the fish special and my colleagues had the "black" spaghetti. The service was great. No problem getting a table on a Tuesday for lunch.

We ended up at Volare because we did not realize that in Chicago, one needs a reservation on a Friday evening. We tried and called several places, but only Volare had a wait under 30 minutes at 9:00 pm. The staff was accommodating and sat...More

In Chicago for business, our group of four met for dinner at Volare. It's popular, busy, friendly "family feel" restaurants serving traditional Italian food (lots of red sauce dishes). The service is quick & efficient. The seating a little crowded, but perfectly comfortable. We tried:...More

We came here on a Friday night. It was very busy and quite noisy. The food was very good, the service attentive. You absolutely need to make an early reservation.

Streeterville is where visitors head for play at Navy
Pier, a pseudo amusement park and development of
restaurants, shops, rides, and other activities.
You’ll find lots of action and excitement on the
docks. Along the pier, you’ll see the statue of the
captain for whom Streeterville is named. While you
enjoy your fair share of sightseeing at the pier, you
can also visit other popular attractions there such as

Absolutely! My husband wore shorts and we were not out of place at all. It’s a small casual place. Our concierge at Loews Hotel recommended it to us when we asked for something “family friendly” and he even mentioned it... More
