We are visiting and was lucky to find Volare for dinner. Highly recommend. Fresh everything out of the Chef's garden. Joshua Moore the Executive Chef visited our table and made us so welcome.

We visited Volare earlier this week - there were 8 in our party. To a person, everyone loved their meal. I had the filet and it was amazing. Josh Moore is an extremely talented chef!!! We will visit there again - very, very soon.

This was our first visit to Volare. We met two other couples for dinner and enjoyed an adult night out. We were placed in the back dining room and it appeared to be more quiet and subdued than the front dining room. It was decorated very nice. This doesn't appear to be a family restaurant and I wouldn't consider taking... More

I can't believe I didn't know about this restaurant. I've lived here for 25 years and this is our first visit. As a disclaimer I'm from NY and have been cooking and eating Italian food all my life. And hands down this is the best Italian restaurant in this city. Better than Vincenzo's by far. Excllent and attentive service. Amazing,... More

My boyfriend and I celebrated our one year anniversary at Volare. The food was exceptional and the service was fine dining all the way! The chef/owner came out personally to congratulate us and make sure we were enjoying everything. He is an awesome chef and overall friendly and personable guy! The fully stocked bar has all top quality liquor and... More

Unlike another reviewer, I was not impressed with the music. This is too small of a venue for music that loud. Restaurants should facilitate conversation. We had a hard time due to the music. Our table was not ready at the time of our reservation, The hostess apologized. The chef gave us free appetizers, The calamari is as good as... More

Our absolute favorite place in town. We've been many times and every meal has always been amazing. Food, presentation, wine, service - all are top notch. On our most recent visit, we all four tried one of the summer menu items and couldn't decide whose dish was the best. All were incredible. Just make sure you save room for dessert.... More

We had a lovely dinner at the bar recently. The musicians added such a nice touch to our evening. Our bartender (Nina) was fantastic - thank you for the recommendation on the wine! Try the Osso Buco and the caprese!

Volare Italian Ristorante was described on Trip Advisor as a "fine dining restaurant serving modern Italian cuisine with southern hospitality. “Volare,” “to fly” in Italian, is a fitting namesake for a dining experience that soars, ascending beyond the ordinary." It was touted as one of the best Italian Restaurants in Louisville, KY! We made reservations a long time before arriving... More

The food is always amazing, we have been here many times and never had anything that was even just ok. Our gouup of four expanded to seven at the last minute and they were quickly accommodating and sat us in a back room, away from the main dining room. Our waiter took our drink orders, dropped them off and never... More
