Went with a party of 9 after the Morton Arboretum Illumination show. One appetizer was not what the table ordered. First apology given. Seven main courses arrived at the table 2 did not ( chicken parm and special risoto dish). They did bring a main course we did not order. Second apology given with offer to keep the non ordered main dish. Seven people finish dinner while 2 waited for their entree. Food only average. Bill comes with the non ordered entree on it. Third apology when this is pointed out. Left not ordering dessert. Service was terrible in addtion to mistakes. Many much better Italian Resturants in western suburbs. Went home and Bears lose 54-3.

We have been to Volare Oakbrook many times, thought it was time to give my long and overdue review.

I know Benny the owner well & I consider him a friend , my wife and I brought our daughter and son in-law here for their Wedding Anniversary.. Needless to say the meal was outstanding !!!

I usually have the Sea Bass, but decided to try the Special Bone-in Rib Eye, it was fabulous as expected. My wife loves their Sea Bass. The entire meal was awesome, the ambiance, the staff, the meal all superb !!!

We have never had a disappointing meal here before, and wasn't disappointed this time either,, From the Manager Theresa, to our superb waiter Ishmael everything was point on. Chef Doug , outstanding as usual. Thank you Benny.. Jesse C.

Volare is our top Italian Restaurant in the Chicago Area.

Theresa handled everything perfectly and Ishmael was Top Notch.

If visiting Chicago please take the time to try Volare , 5 ***Stars where were concerned. Thank you Benny !!!!

We had an excellent dining experience. Upscale but very relaxed atmosphere. Our waiter was very professional and attentive as was the rest of the staff. Food was fantastic. Started with the calamari, and had the veal medalions which were very tender and delicious. We'll definitely be back the next time we're visiting this part of Chicago.

Just went to Volare for the first time because a old friend was singing in the lounge. We ended up eating in the lounge so that we could hear 2 sets. So, Volare will sometimes have live entertainment. Although they were very busy in the restaurant, lounge, and special occasion room, the server was attentive, very courteous, and the food arrived very quickly. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large - good value. We would have not made the trip to Volare if it had not been for our friend but we're glad we did and would definitely return. By the way, turns out that he is a very good singer.

We have been to Volare many times. It is now our - go to -restaurant when we need a great meal. Just last night we went based on the specials... We had a pumpkin risotto. I am not a fan of cooked pumpkin but decided to give it a try...it was wonderful! Pumpkin risotto served in a mini pumpkin which was delicious in itself! I also had a veggie olio penne dish for dinner and it had such a great light taste. My hubby has the braised beef. He thought it was tender and also very delicious! Our server, Lawrence, always takes great care of us. We love coming here for celebrations or even just a weeknight meal. You can't go wrong. Chef Doug knows his stuff!
