“Not a favorite”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Wasn't my favorite place. Food was okay, maybe we caught the servers on a bad night. Will try again.

“A night with friends”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

Enjoyed an evening with out-of-town friends. Wanted to take them somewhere good but comfortable. Volare fills the bill on that score. Its location on Louisville's Frankfort Avenue dining and shopping scene is a nice way to spend time.
The food is very good but, not exceptional. The decor is a pleasant suggestion of Italy with a very good wait staff, though, occasionally, they can be a bit stuffy.

“Volare- Michael is a star employee”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Volare-Good Italian fare made great by our server, Michael. We have eaten here before and been "nonplussed" Good food, but have never felt very welcome. Almost as if we have dropped in unexpectedly. Today however, Michael went a long way in changing that. Front of house, still not as warm as they should be. Empty resturant, got there at open and they tried to seat us in the bar. Place was dead. We opted for the other option, patio. Not sure why but the main part of the resturant was not offered. Michael was great, just the right amount of chatty and expert. There when needed not intrusive. Good food made better by great care. As we were leaving, still not a full place by any means, another couple was trying to be seated in the main dinig area, not the patio. Finally, someone, manager perhaps, came over and offered to seat them wherever they choose. As it should be. If you are booked solid, I get it, set wherever there is room. IF you are empty, make the folks there happy, don't wait on some "better" diners to happen along!

“Great food and service”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Have been to Volare twice for seminar-type meetings and the food and service are always impressive. I can't speak for the service or atmosphere in the main dining room, but Volare treats us well during meetings.

The calamari and eggplant appetizers are fantastic, the wedge salad is amazing, and the veal dishes and filet mignon are outstanding!
