Here for Army/Navy game. Found Volare not too far far from Army Hotel. Here for Army Navy game. Fun place. Ro Ro (really that's her name); delightful person; Mary helped also. One problem: It's a BYOB place. No vino, no problem! Great liquor store 2...doors up the street. Good bottle of Chianti Classico. My wife had Cappalini with shrimp in a red sauce; I had Tornnerelli (Linguinii with shrimp, smoked bacon and fresh mushrooms in a divine white Vodka sauce). Dessert was blueberry cheese cake. Fun dinner. Excellent food. Great service. Works for us! Beat Navy tomorrow and all will be well! Beat Navy tomorrow ( or Sing Second as we refer to it) and all will be well with the world!More

We arranged a family meal to celebrate a 30th birthday. Family came from Kent to join us and they hadn't been to Volares before. They were bowled over by the restaurant " the loveliest Italian we have ever been to". It isn't just the outstanding...food (the chefs are magicians) but the whole experience that makes Volares quite an exceptional place to be in. It's quintessentially Italian so an experience in itself and staff all SO LOVELY TO BE AROUND. The little gestures such as the birthday candles, the banter and laughs with staff and the great choice of drinks....I could go on. A happy, happy place to be part of. Volares made our weekend truly lovely.More

I hosted my daughter’s bridal shower at Volare’s and it was lovely. The owner Denise and her son were great to work with. It was so nice to have the entire restaurant for the party.The food was delicious! Everything was fresh and plentiful. Another plus...is that Volare’s is a BYOB. It’s also a great place to go for dinner. The only downside is that there’s no parking lot but the quality of the food and service more than makes up for the inconvenience. Go to Volare’s and you won’t be disappointed!More

Outstanding service and personal attention by all wait staff. One of my favorite 'bring your own' Restaurants. All fish on the menu is fresh daily which makes for great taste and flavor.

We went for a recent Confirmation party for my oldest son. Service was great, food is solid and when they didn't have a special because they ran out they gave us a free dessert.

We were here for a party. The appetizers were really good. For dinner we had the chicken francais, which was tasty but the penne vodka was a little bland.

A very nice restaurant with a up-scar decour. The service was excellent & the food was good for the price point. The only down side was parking, You had to find a parking space on the street in a busy part of town.

Our friends live in Rutherford so they have been here before but our first time. Needless to say we will back. BYOB, they offer price fix for a full course meal or off the menu. One of us did price fix and the rest were...off the menu. he difference in entree is portion size but I must say even with that the portion was very generous. The app's were free fabulous. We had coconut shrimp that came with a marmalade orange sauce that was very complimentary to the huge shrimp it came with. Cooked to perfection and presented beautifully. Fried Calamari with a ginger sauce also delightful. Calamari were light, cooked perfectly and generous portion again. My friend who did price fix had the mussels in wine. Excellent and they were small mussels so very tender. Dinner choices were Pork shank Osso Buco- fall off the bone tender over risotto made with a herbatious carrot and celery "gravy" if you will. Veal Saltimbocca, Veal Milanese and Veal Parmigiana. All three veal dishes were equally good. Love their side veggies, carrot, zucchini and potatoes very comforting. We had tiramisu, cheer cake and chocolate cake to dessert, all were delicious but the chocolate cake truly was decadent and my favorite. Their staff is very diligent to always clear dishes quickly, replace water in your glasses and ar every attentive to your every need. Loved the experience and can't wait to go back. Thank you Robert and Denise, truly memorable. We went at 4:00 as son as they opened, parking was no issue at that time and it was delightful to enjoy our meal before they got packed for dinner. We were so excited to eat we forgot to take photo's this trip but we will next visit.More

Always excellent service and food. The portions are perfect and sometimes you have some left over for a great snack the next day. Last visit I had the chicken and it was very tasty and tender. Always happy with a trip to this restaurant.

Service was excellent and food was good and moderately priced. Portions were nice size and quite a selection of pastas, veal, chicken, and fish dishes. The Oso buco was incredible. BYOB and a liquor store just next door. Will be visiting again.

Based on TA reviews, went to this restaurant and was not disappointed. Ordered from the pre fix menu which included appetizer, salad, entrée and coffee with dessert. All the apps were tasty as were the entrees. The salad was very sparse but still good. Service...was first rate. Pay with cash and the price is $3 less per meal than if paid by credit card. The only drawback is the very limited off street parking. Parking on street is metered. Will return to this outstanding restaurant.More
