What's not to love, great Italian food combined with excellent service. This is an old school family Italian restaurant. When you step inside expect to be treated like family because that is how Sal is going to treat you. Volare has a good wine selection from Italy and the US. My friend had the Osso Buco which was excellent and I had the Pollo specialty of the day, also very good. Come hungry because the portions are healthy. This place is worth taking the subway from Midtown

Volare has been my favorite Italian restaurant for years now. The food is always wonderful and the staff is very welcoming. Most of the time we don't order from the menu, just what we are feeling for that night. The warm antipasto is amazing! It mixes clams, shrimp, calamari and lobster tails. My favorite dish is the veal milanese. It is prepared by pounding and flatting their veal chop topped with greens with light balsamic. The veal chop alone is always fresh and very large. Their daily pasta dishes are always delicious and have a lot of variety. I strongly suggest Volare for anyone who wants an old school NYC Italian restaurant with great food and people.

I have been coming here for years and I love to take the out-of-town set. Firstly, Vo's is old school Italian. You can always get what you want as they will make whatever you ask for. The drinks are goldfish bowls and the staff, friendly and competent.
Always a go to restaurant.. Try it.

My husband and I came across this restaurant one night and what a wonderful discovery that was. We've been back several times since then. This is a reliable restaurant for wonderful food, gracious service in an adult atmosphere.
