Looking forward to coming back when I am in Louisville.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationArriving in style to an elegant welcome and a pleasant atmosphere. Everyone in the party felt special and welcome. The food was excellent ... Most of us had and enjoyed a tasty encrusted salmon with a very flavorful sauce. The wine that was recommended by the server was a perfect match at an affordable price. The manager's dessert tray was a treat !!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA great dining experience!This wonderful dining experience starts from the time you drive up to the free valet parking and enter this friendly professionally run resteraunts. The managers goal is to treat you as a special guest and he ensnsure that your dining experience is exceptional. The menu is varied but not so large that it is hard to get through. The server did a great job of highlighting the evening's specials with expertise and detailed explanations as to their preparation. He was friendly and very attentive to our needs. Although it was just the two of us it appeared that they did a good job of giving that same level of attention to larger groups of diners. The food was superb with great presentation and wonderful flavor. We will go back again.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistantly GoodWe usually go to Volare for special occasions. This time was for our wedding anniversary. Everything about this restaurant is superb. They never disappoint.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable!Had a nice evening, but felt a little crowded with the tables being very close and it was busy. Hard for the server to squeeze to the back of the table. Our food was very nice though. I split the chicken marsala and a salad. Others had veal and bolognese. Plates were clean!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian Food-great priceHad friends inTown for a Conference and went to this Restaurant-which had excellent food-at a fair price;The service was exceptional;Strongly recommend6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff are very friendlyThe staff are very friendly and helpful.

When you walk in the door you immediately feel like your every need will be taken care of, actually before that with the great valet parking. Great service starts at the top, and the restaurant manager greets everyone and makes them feel welcome. The food and wine choices are excellent, and the attention to detail is great. I love Italian food, so this has to be one of my favorites, but only because of the food and the experience - which is over the top. Every visit is a special visit when you go to Volare - because they make it that way.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAWAYS GREAT - AWAYS AMAZINGTruly, we have never had a bad meal at Volare, truly we have never had anything short of an amazing meal at Volare, but the greatness does not stop with Chef Josh Moore's innovative superbly prepared Italian cuisine. General Manager Tarak Hamada and the front of the house crew is second to none in this "foodie's dream come true setting" The staff at the Bar is equally top-drawer, Mixologist Kyle Tabler along with entire bar crew have taken making the Cocktail into a art-form project of perfection. Dawn Bianconcini makes sure all events, special dinners and special occasions are taken to a new level.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryWonderful place for an anniversary dinner!

I always come back because it is a pleasure to dine there...5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!We recently enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Volare''. Our only concern was the location of our table. We were very close to the kitchen. In the future we will request a table on the patio or in the front of the resturant. The food was fabulous! The chef, Joshua Moore, even came by to ask about our dinner. He was very attentive and even gave us his business card so we can call and ask about the type of fish he would have available each week. We felt extremely pampered and we absolutely visit again very soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMComplete Treat !We had Mother's Day Brunch at Volare on Sunday, while we have had dinner at the amazing hot spot dozens of times, this however was our first time to experience one the their special day brunches, and it was nothing short of fantastic. Chef Josh Moore had his kitchen staff on point with a wonderful selection from which to choose right down to the shaved asparagus. GM Tarak Hamada's finely tuned front of house crew performed to perfection as always, it's not a wonder why in this big-time foodie town Volare is a complete treat!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReserve a table at VolareWe are repeat customers at Volare Ristorante ever since our daughter had a wedding rehearsal dinner there in 2007.
Our Mother's day reservation was made through the online OPen Table system and it worked out great!
I was glad because trying to phone the restaurant was very frustrating and always led to a transfer to a voice mail. For quite some time, I wasn't sure if I had a reservation or not. I think next time I'll just eliminate the phone call.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for apps and saladsGreat place for apps and salads with half priced wine bottles in the bar!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the filet with a bitI had the filet with a bit of brie --it was melt in your mouth delicious!

If I were staying in Louisville longer, I would absolutely return here. I loved the ambiance. Even at 9 PM, it was packed and energetic, yet felt elegant and romantic. There was some live music as well. The service was terrific. Our waiter was very attentive and even when we ordered a salad last minute, he made sure we got it before our entrees. The food was delicious, including bread with roasted garlic olive oil, wedge salad, and taglioline alla pollo. It was my favorite restaurant experience so far in Louisville and definitely my choice for special occasions. The whole evening felt special.
