  • "Volare has been a great restaurant. However, our last visit we had a reservation for 7:00pm. The hostess said the table would be ready by 7:15. That was fine. We visited the bar and had a glass of wine. After an hour wait, they couldn't find a table for us. Within a few minutes after this information was relayed, they seated us at a very nice table. No apology. This restaurant serves excellent food. I found fault with the girls at the hostess desk. They probably need a few more hours of instruction!!"

  • "I have had the pleasure of dining at Volare a few times when traveling to Louisville on business - and a bit of a coincidence that 50 years ago i lived just a few blocks from this location. In ever instance, both the food and service has varied only from good to great. Really - in my experience - a world class dining opportunity. I have paid far more elsewhere for far less in terms of both service and food quality."

  • "It had been quite a while since we had dinner at Volare and I won't wait that long again! Excellent food and service and significant wine list. Isaac, the Sommelier was so helpful and patient explaining and recommending wines. I had the Risotto which was creamy and very tasteful. My friend loved the Osso Bucco."

To my request for a nice table we were seated in a great spot. The service was impeccable and staff checked a few times (without hovering) to make sure everything was okay. Thank you to the aches and staff for making this a memorable evening...a great way to say thank you!"

  • "What a beautiful offering in the heart of the fabulous Clifton neighborhood! The energetic space is filled with the music of local talent that takes one back to the jazzy elegance of the Rat Pack era. The maitre'd is ever present with his warm and welcoming smile as the relaxed staff attend to every need, bringing out the additional "behind the bar" wine list when asked; ready for any oenophile's request. The farm-to-table options rival Tuscan locals (my kale spring salad was sublime). For healthier pasta options, the kitchen is ready to substitute whole-wheat penne.The half-priced bottled wine Wednesdays have created such a buzz the valet burns up the sidewalk jumping in the bevy of elegant cars streaming to the store front. Brava Volare!"

  • "My wife and I went here for our anniversary. We were there on a Sunday and had reservations and were seated immediately. The restaurant was somewhat empty so noise was minimal. Our server was friendly and attentive and was happy to explain the menu items. If I had to complain it would be the parking. They offer valet which we decined. The parking lot only holds about 15 cars and was full (again this was a Sunday). We lucked out and were able to park on the street nearby. The other complaint was the service towards the end of our meal. We had to wait a while for the check but to be fair the restaurant had fled up with two large groups so our server was really busy. Overall the food and service were great. We will definitely be back. "

  • "Food is always excellent. We always celebrate anything special at Volare."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "When I made the reservation, I mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary, and it was really nice when the hostess sat us, she wished us Happy Anniversary as did the wait staff and manager. This was our first visit and to have that much attention to detail is really great to see. The food was excellent, dessert was fabulous. I would recommend Volare to anyone that is looking a memorable evening out. "

  • "We made reservations via Open Table a week ahead for my birthday dinner. When we arrived we were seated immediately and every staff member was friendly and courteous. Our server Mike was helpful, knowledgeable and not too serious! The food was excellent, I had the sea bass special, which was very crispy on the outside and warm and flaky on the inside. My partner had veal parmigiana, a huge portion of thinly sliced veal with a light crispy breading. I also received a free dessert for my birthday and I chose the tiramisu, which was also excellent and very authentic. Overall our experience was wonderful. The only problem I saw was that the tables were placed too close together and servers had some difficulty navigating around the diners."

  • "As always, our experience at Volare was very good. The service at this restaurant is always outstanding. We had two guests with us that had never dined there, and found the food, service, and selections to be amazing. This is one of my favorite places to dine, I just wish they would bring back the Molten Lava Cake, as it was one of the best desserts around."

  • "Food, service and ambiance was good, but I was going to spend $100 on a meal, I would definitely go somewhere else. The food wasn't the best (fairly bland). The staff was very friendly and service was good. "

  • "Our first time at this restaurant. We had a reservation for two on a busy Friday night. About thirty minutes before our reservations, I called to ask to change to a reservation for four. With a slight time change, they accommodated us and we scored a table in the small covered patio. Dinner was very tasty for all four of us, the waitress was professional, pleasant and knowledgable ( of menu and wine list). We had a leisurely meal yet felt well tended by the waitress and her assistant. "
