“Good food, slow service”
Reviewed May 5, 2012 via mobile

Ate here on recommendation from hotel concierge. We had about 15 minute wait- just enough time to get you to order drink at the bar, then off to our table. Everyone very friendly. Food was great, but very slow coming, we had to wait for more bread, oil, and seemingly forever for the entrees. I had seafood with squid ink pasta- quite tasty, my companion had the rigatonni. Starter house chopped Volare salad was great.

“New Taylor street”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

You used to have to go to Taylor street for good Italian food but this is a game changer. Absolutely best food for dollar on Miracle Mile. Rosebud step up.

“Italian Comfort Food”
Reviewed April 28, 2012 via mobile

Great appetizers, especially the Seafood options. The veal dishes were very good, and the lasagna was both huge and wonderfully tasty. Extremely friendly servers, and attentive staff. Vibrant atmosphere. My wife and I ate there twice on a recent trip. We will definitely go back next time we visit Chicago.

“Dinner was wonderful.”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

My daughter and I went for dinner on a Friday night. She has been numerous times and loved it. Yes, the place was full and I know why. Yes, the seating is pretty close but actually it didn't seem that bad when you were talking with your guest. Enjoyed a very relaxing dinner. The food was delicious and the great thing is we were never rushed thru like some places do. The server was excellent and so was the service. Can't wait to return and try their lunch menu.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

My recent visit to Volare saw us greeted with warm and friendly staff. The menu selection was first rate and reflects a true first class Italian quisine. Volare has had a recent refit and to be honest the new decore really didn't have that buzz I would expect.
Service was first rate, the food was superb though a little on the high price side. Overall a nice night out though.
