“An excellent family run restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Volare is a relatively small restaurant towards the Preston end of Lord Street. If you make the effort to find it you will be rewarded with good food and attentive (but not overly) service in a warm and intimate atmosphere. The food is traditional Italian, not just pizza and pasta, although if you choose pizza or pasta you won't be disappointed.

“wonderful !!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

This is truly an amazing restaurant. Sited at the Northern end of Lord street. Beyond all the glitzy ones with the fancy frontages and fancy prices to match. This restaurant, is family owned and run. The food is wonderful, visited on 2 occassions recently and quickly learned that you cannot eat 3 courses, 1st time a starter and main, 2nd time,main and dessert. Lovely food , cooked fresh. Staff are all so friendly. The place is very clean indeed. Had 2 lovely meals and would highly recommend this place to any one looking for , good food, friendly atmosphere, and reasonable prices. Give it a try if you are in the town at some point!

“Fantastical”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Took friends here who are intending to move to area and like us love Italian food. We go here often but sometimes when you recommend somewhere it doesn't work out. Fantastic meal again at reasonable prices. Between us we had slag carbonara, pasta with monkfish, meat pizza and chicken with asparagus and veg. All beautiful, in fact carbonara was sublime. Staff as friendly as ever and service wonderful too. So good I am going again tonight with different friends !

“hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2013

I was taken here at the end of a business meeting, I know Southport very well but had not previously noticed this little Italian.
Exterior wise its very plain and could be more inviting but dont let that put you off.
The menu is extensive and supplemented by specials. There were 9 of us dining and each of the dishes chosen were superb.
Service was friendly and overall an excellent evening and I shall certainly be going back!

“A return visit again (bad grammar I know)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Visited 9th May 2013. They recalled our visiting before, 'which was nice'. Atmosphere again great - it buzzes in the best possible way. Food was fabulous, without any pretension, just as it should be. This time tried many fish dishes ( plus and decedent and delicious flambe pancake with Ameretto) all fabulous; plus grilled chicken that was done just right. House wine is well chosen and good value. Tried others, but keep coming back to Volare. The music they play is fun too!
