Volare was a terrific experience. The food was very good, as was the service. The prices are more than fair. My party was impressed. We will return when next in Chicago.

Food was wonderful and the staff bent over backwards to make it a great experience. I have major back issues and the owner offered to go and find me a gel cushion for comfort.

We were immediately greeted by a very friendly waiter. He provided great suggestions for an appetizer and a shared pasta. In addition, he asked us the price range we were looking for our wine. The waiter actually stayed under our range for a great bottle!...More

I had to try it. Thank you to the nice local couple from the hotel bar to refer it! Not my fave but not bad either. The waitress was amazing - she gave great recommendations. The tiramisu was one of the best-classic and traditional. I...More

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
