Well Above Average Classic Italian Fare and Great Service

Went with a work colleague and ate in the bar. Service was fairly attentive, food was very good. I didn't give it tops because it was super noisy for the level of patron it seems to want to attract... noisy like a sports bar, I could barely hear my colleague.

Went here last week for the first time. Never heard of the place but my wife wanted to try someplace new that neither of us have been to. As we were browsing the menu the waiter came over to our table and asked if we had any questions regarding the menu. We stated we still needed a few minutes. He... More

A little isolated, so not so obvious, but an excellent choice for authentic Italian dining. I missed it for two years and now it is among my favorites. The service is top-notch and the menu selections are broad and original. The atmosphere is also very pleasant.

Volare clearly exceeds the standard set for neighborhood Italian food. All the standards are executed expertly (pastas, veal and gnocchi at our table) along with imaginative specials (a large stuffed pork chop with marsala/mushroom) and a nice bronzini presentation. Service is friendly and competent (...not always the same thing !!) and the atmosphere 'homey'. The hostess even declined a gratuity... More

I have visited this restaurant many times and the food and service is always exceptional. The chef makes the most amazing meals and the service is always top notch. Our favorite waiters are Lawrence & Ishmael.

This place was selected by a local to host a 35 person dinner, people from all over the country were attending a training session. Normally when in Chicago he goes to the original location in down town but since our meetings were being held in Lombard it was the perfect alternative. Yes you could go to the weber grill restaurant... More

Lovely restaurant and extensive menu. I had the blank ink spaghetti with seafood (shrimps, crab meat and scallops). It was so delicious and the seafood were cooked well. The bread basket was also very good. I would definitely come back.

We're staying close by and Volare was recommended by some local friends, so we decided to give it a try early one summer Sunday evening, The place was decent but I definitely wouldn't rave about it. However, if we had been locals---as many people seemed to be---maybe we would've liked it better. It's not that our server was inattentive; no,... More

I had an opportunity to have dinner in a restaurant which was new to me, while taking a friend and his wife out to celebrate his birthday. Fortunately we had been given a 'gift card' from "Volare". It was a great evening. Excellent Italian food, the weather cooperated and we even sat outside. The service was good, it was so... More

I had the pasta with lump crab meat, shrimp, and scallops with red sauce instead of white. It was the best pasta I've had in years! It's a formal restaurant, so dress nicely!
