Ate there for the first time last night and was not disappointed. First, you must make a reservation or you risk not being seated. Second, this is not an inexpensive restaurant, just know that going in. I started out with the beet and goat cheese salad; all the pieces of the salad balanced each other perfectly. For the main I...

I will start by saying that I am a local and this has been one of my top three pick restaurants in Louisville, a competitive restaurant town, for over five years. Writing this review saddens me, but this restaurant has slipped. I do not know if the management has changed, the chef has changed or what the explanation but it... More

Service and food are consistently above average. They frequently have live music and serve half-price wine in the bar 7 days a week.

My wife is a vegetarian, so finding a place that we both like is often a challenge. Volare's did not disappoint. I had a wonderful lasagna with sausage, beef, and ricotta. Portions were huge and I took much of it home with me. They prepared a special veggie-pasta hybrid dish for my wife with a cream sauce that she loved.... More

I have visited Volare many times, but have never reviewed it. I felt it was selfish of me to keep this fabulous restaurant all to myself. The food is always delicious and on point. The plates are full and if you leave there hungry, it's your own fault. On a recent visit we ordered the muscles for an appetizer. One... More

Volare has an extensive selection of Italian wines. We came for a special occasion and found the service and round corner table most accommodating for a gathering. The bruschetta with truffle oil is outstanding, so be sure to include that in your appetizer selection. The menu offered much to choose from, and each of us was happy with our pasta... More

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant that reminds me of the food we had while traveling in Italy. It was very beautifully served and tasted magnificent. They also have half price wine of one day, can't remember if it is Wednesday or Thursday. Also they had a singer in the bar that was very talented and made my anniversary even... More

We had a group of eight and made a reservation, good thing we did because it was crowded. The wine recommended was great and it went well with the braised ribs that I had. The service was good and the manager came by to check on us.

The best Italian by far in Louisville. Great service, delicious and beautiful plates, and a good atmosphere. Carpaccio was out of this world! Tiramisu was so good it but others to shame.

We were a party of 12 people and were comfortable seating in a corner of the restaurant, even though we were a large group the efficiency and the cadence of the service was really good: drinks, appetizers, main entrees, dessert I ordered the duck and it was quite tasty however for my opinion it was such a large portion.
