“Great find!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013 via mobile

We had dinner at Volare. It was a very pleasant experience all the way around. It's a restaurant in a cute little house. The staff was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. My husband and sister-in-law had spaghetti bolognese. It had a nice flavor and the pasta was cooked well. I had pollo ravioli in an aurora sauce. It was delicious. The bread was fresh and the olive oil with garlic and herbs was delicious. We will definitely go back if we're back in Brenham.

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

We always enjoy going to a restaurant that is a little more quiet. This place not only had fantastic food but the setting was just right. My husband had the veal scaloppini sautéed with shrimp and sundried tomatoes and I had the snapper with mushrooms and capers in a white wine cream sauce. Both were superb. The dimly lit setting made for a very romantic evening. Wait staff was great too!

“Great experience”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

We had excellent food and service. Even our three year old was happy. This is a very. Ice place and I was a little concerned bringing in children but they put us in a back room where we did not disturb couples dining alone. We did make reservations

“Good Italian Food in Brenham”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

I would not normally expect to find good Italian cuisine in Brenham. German yes but not Italian. Volare is a very nice, larger than expected eatery just outside of the town square. We actually walked there while waiting for the festivities of the evening to begin on the square. Very friendly hostess and wait staff that are very attentive. We had a large group and the waiter easily managed to adjust each entree to the desire of the person who wished changes, some easy and some not. The only negative remark was that the food was delivered in two stages with about five minutes between the two settings which was kind of uncomfortable. Everyone loved their entree ranging from simple spaghetti and meat balls for the young one, pastas, veal and fish dishes and a very nice rib eye steak for the others. Hot bread with garlic butter as well as plain butter served with cold fresh salads with nice dressings before the main courses arrived. All in all a very nice meal in nice setting that was a good surprise in Brenham.
