Diner Reviews
  • "Excellent food, service and atmosphere as 6 of us had a magnificent evening! The steaks are fantastic!"

  • "It took over 40 minutes for our main course to arrive."

  • "This is the third time I have been to the restaurant and the second time for valentines day. Their everyday menu is excellent with high regards to the risotto and of course the filet. Valentines day does have a smaller menu but it has a little something for everyone. The wine menu is to die for and the servers truly know what to recommend. The service was spot on and the price even though represents fine dining, it was a good price."

  • "Went on Valentines Day 2014. Made reservations well in advance. Didn't get seated until half hour after the reservation time. Bartender ignored us while we were waiting for our table. When we finally got her attention she was clearly annoyed. My boyfriend asked for sparkling water and she brought tap. When we were finally seated it took almost 10 minutes for someone to asked if we were being helped. When the manager finally assigned a waiter to our table, the waiter was confused and flustered as he didn't expect to be waiting on us. The food was good but for the money, you can get much better service elsewhere."

  • "The atmosphere at the restaurant is alluring and inviting. Our service was a bit slow (went on Valentine's day so it was very busy). They seemed to be understaffed and our waitress rarely checked on us. When she did so, she was courteous and helpful. The food was very good, but definitely overpriced. I didn't mind paying that much for the food because it was quite good and the restaurant has a good atmosphere, but I don't think I'd return. If I pay $45.00 for pasta, I want to be "wowed" by it and it just wasn't quite there."

  • "My entree was delicious but too much hot red pepper, my mouth was on fire!"

  • "I am a regular at Volare. Everything is always outstanding until now. Do yourself a favor and ask not to have Justin as your server. He is slow, not good. Again the restaurant is outstanding."

  • "Great restaurant with AMAZING food. Dino and his staff do an unbelievable job at a reasonable price. Service, food quality and staff are second to none! I do a LOT of entertaining for my job, so needless to say, when I go out personally, my expectations are high as are my want for a carefree, excellent dining experience. I moved to Chicago a few years ago and STILL make trips back to dine at Volare..."

  • "Excellent overall considering it was new years eve. Very busy and loud. Seated within 10 mins of revs. Excellent service"

  • "We had a reservation for 6 people on New Year's Eve. We were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation. Our waiter seemed to be new and had a very laid back approach, which we didn't mind, but I think some people might. All 6 of our dishes were fantastic. My wife and I had the filet, which was slightly over-cooked for medium, but still tasted amazing. They really packed it in at the restaurant, so it felt a little crowded, but otherwise was a good evening."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The bread was good, the wine as well, so was the guacamole that came with the rather bland seared tuna. The minestrone had too much salt, the pizza had something sweet on it and the dough was also sweet. We thought we give the dessert a try with a tiramisu. The first bite good but then it became blah. Espresso was luke warm."
    Dined on 12/29/2013
  • "We love Italian food and as Italian restaurants go this place is average. I do think they are way over priced for what they offer. This is the third time we have given Volare a try and we have not been impressed by the service or food. Seven for dinner and are bill was almost 300.00 no drinks we ordered. I think we can cross this place off our list."

  • "The food is quite good but we went for our anniversary and Volare does not have the atmosphere for a special occasion. It is pretty but quite casual for the prices they charge. For that kind of money, I would expect a something more elegant. They even had to dim the lights above us, it was so bright it felt like we were at a casual lunch. Service was excellent. Tiramisu was recommended and we sent it back (never had to do that). It didn't taste authentic, it was booze soaked. We tried to spumoni and it was out of this world. My father is 100% Italian and I plan on bringing him here just for the spumoni."

  • "Best Filet I have ever had, the zip sauce is amazing!"
    Dined on 12/20/2013
  • "I would highly recommend this place for special occasions. Food was great. The server was the best we have had in YEARS. It was worth the price. We were a party of eight and all of us were extremely pleased."

  • "This was our first time trying this restaurant and my wife and I were overly surprised how great everything was. Upon arriving you get complementary valet at the door even though it was not needed made it seem fancier. Our server Ashley was awesome as she knew we were there to have a nice romantic night together. I was thinking being an Italian restaurant to get some type of pasta, but had to try one of their steaks since that is what they are known for. I had the filet since it only wanted a small steak and oh my god was it wonderful. Probably one of the best steaks I have had. My wife went pasta and the gnocchi were very good as well. The wine list is a bit large, but Ashley helped us. Definitely a place we will come back to for sure."

  • "Excellent service very knowledgeable waiter. Food presentation was very good. A place for special occasions for sure"
    Dined on 11/25/2013
  • "Want to wow out of town friends or family? This is the place. Best bone-in ribeye anywhere - charred on the outside, tender and full of flavor throughout. Linguini and seafood in a spicy red sauce is impressive. Extensive wine list. High end on price, but well worth the money. They offer a $20 lunch you just can't beat. This is where my office has it's Christmas party every year."

  • "Valet takes up all of the close parking spaces, which is weird. Why pay to have you park my car three feet away? It wasn't very busy for a Friday night, but the acoustics were loud. We had to speak with raised voices. The atmosphere is very fun Tuscan Italy. I love the warm bread and olive oil on the tables. It would be nice if they had some salted herbs to mix in. Our server was nice, but unassuming (low personality.) The food was expensive. I had the lobster risotto special for $48! None of us knew our entrees came with a salad. We wished the server would have informed us. All the food was good, although my lobster had an unpleasant strong fishy odor. We would return simply because of good food and atmosphere."

  • "I had just come back from a trip to Alaska, and we wanted to go out rather than cook at home. My wife and I enjoyed our meals. It is a shame that not more people were enjoying this neighborhood gem. It was a Tuesday night, but only a few people were enjoying their dinners. We will return, and potentially visit on a Friday or Saturday."
    Dined on 11/19/2013
  • "Food was absolutely amazing! Service was good, but not great. Had to ask for an ice bucket for white wine and he forgot several things. Spaghetti and pasta dishes are reasonable, steaks are very, very expensive."

  • "We celebrated my husbands birthday a few nights ago and this restaurant met every requirement we have in rating a restaurant excellent. It was sunday and not very crowded. The wine list was endless and reasonably priced; appetizers sized for 5 of us to get a good taste. The beef entree's were outstanding. My husband's seafood pasta was so loaded with seafood including a lobster tail! It may be pricey, but salad or soup are included."

  • "The evening was delightful. The food was delicious."

  • "We get to Volare's about every other month and are never disappointed. The pasta and veal are superb. Service was attentive. The only negative was that the background music was a bit too loud."

  • "I bought a TravelZoo Voucher for 4 people which included 2 appetizers (up to $14 each) and 4 entrees (up to $36 each). The annoying part was that they won't combine the totals for you. One of us ordered chicken for $22 but they wouldn't take the remaining $14 voucher balance off the total bill. Everybody loved the entrees. I ordered the Manzo ribeye cooked medium but it's sitting in an orange zip sauce and it wasn't until I was half way into it that I noticed it was cooked well done. I didn't say anything because I was already almost finished with it. It still tasted very good but I don't like steak cooked well done. The Manzo is a bone-in 22oz ribeye which is great but it's very pricey at $54."
    Dined on 10/21/2013
  • "The food here is wonderful. It is not on par with a Lelli's or Ruth's Chris, but it's price is right for the quality. I will dine here again, although I was not impressed with my waiter for the night and I felt it took too long for service since the restaurant was quite empty on a early week night."

  • "I live out of State but visit Volare many times a year while in town for work. The food is excellent, especially the Veal Chop. I'd highly recommend Volare."
    Dined on 10/21/2013
  • "As mentioned in the title, the food at Volare is just good and way overpriced. My pasta plate was $18 but for the amount I received (think a cereal bowl portion), the plate should have only cost no more than $10. My husband ordered beef tips for $38. Again, for the quality and portion he was given, $20 should be shaved off of the price. If a restaurant is going to charge that amount for their food, then the food better be excellent and/or doled out in larger portions."

  • "My wife and I experienced this restaurant for the first time. Great service (our waitperson did the best job I have ever experienced explaining the menu as this was our first time dining here. Food was equally impressive. Italian sausage app was excellent. I had house salad and wife had beet salad, both fresh and well dressed. I had the filet med rare...as good as I ever had. Wife had the strip steak, also excellent. Fingerling potatoes and green beans were also well prepared. Our only concern was we didn't have any room for dessert!"

    Dined on 10/4/2013
  • "Once again Dino served up two outstanding meals. You won't find a better veal chop anywhere. Wine list is small but very impressive. Service is always top notch. We dined on the 'bar side' and enjoyed everything. We'll be back again and again."

  • "Since we live nearby, we frequent Volare's several times a year. We have never been disappointed in the food, wine or service. It is a very nice restaurant that is consistent in it's food and service. That is what keeps us coming back. They also have a very nice bar area as well. Highly recommened it."

  • "It was not the best place I've ever been to eat, but it was very good. I believe some of the items are overpriced. I love veal parmigiana, but not for $52. That being said, I got the ossobucco which was around $30. It was good, not amazing, but tasty. My wife got salmon. She said it needed some more "zip" (spices or sauce, something...) The highlight was the calamari. It was fried perfectly with a great breading. The sauce they give you with it is the best side sauce I've ever had with calamari. The chocolate lava cake was good, but the portion was very small for the price. The minestrone soup was excellent. The salad was just "eh." Bottom line, we are willing to go back and get the calamari and will try different main courses."

  • "This was a special wedding anniversary dinner with my wife and I.... The food was outstanding. It was a weeknight, so the restaurant was not very busy. Our waiter seemed preoccupied and nervous. He needed to repeat things to us, a couple of times. He spoke very fast. We asked the the whole dinner to not be a hurried affair and yet our meals appeared as if he was trying to get us out of the restaurant quickly."
