My husband and I enjoyed an Antipasto platter and a bottle of very smooth Italian red wine at Volare.
The service was perfect and the food exquisite.
We are looking forward to sampling more of the menu next time (and more of the Italian wines!)

Like many of the restaurants on The Strand this one has a choice of indoor and outdoor seating. However nothing beats Volare for its atmospheric upstairs dining room with beautiful views over the harbour. Service is welcoming and competent. There is a good selection of items on the menu and I was more than satisfied with my rabbit based main and the antipasti starter. If you only have one opportunity to dine on The Strand then put Volare on your short list.

Great food, reasonable menu selection. Very small portion sizes and reasonably expensive. You are likely to want all the courses to feel satisfied. Good selection of wines, good service.

I've eaten many times at Volare, and it's always great food, excellent service, and the ambience is just amazing, especially if you can bag a window table, overlooking the inner harbour.

I've eaten starters, including mixed platters of antipasti, main dishes and desserts, and all have been excellent - freshly prepared, good ingredients, nice presentation and friendly professional service.

Highly recommended.
