If you know anything about Italian food, you will not like this place. The food was very mediocre at best, lacked flavor and originality. We went there because of all the great reviews and were very disappointed.

We were seated in the smaller back dining room which was quieter than the mail dining room and bar area.
Our first visit and we will be back - excellent food and service.

Celebrated a birthday recently as good excuse to come back to one of our favorite restaurants. We all enjoyed the live musical entertainment from bar area that filtered over to dining room. Had to order our favorite appetizer (eggplant rollatini) along with wine and cocktails to start. We followed with Veal Piccata and pasta Bolognese which was excellent. Was temped to try Chilean sea bass, but had to have veal as my favorite. Finished with a great "Heathbar" cheesecake....yum!! Had a nice visit from Chef Josh for birthday greeting and discussed his winning of recent "Chopped" TV chef competition.

Fantastic evening.

Volare never disappoints. Attentive waitstaff that don't hover. Food that is flat-out delicious. I had the Lumache Carcerata (home made pasta with Italian sausage, basil, tomatoes, cream) and it was amazing. Hats off to Chef Josh and his team!!

This was only our second time dining at Volare. Food was delicious and service was amazing! The light in the private dining room kept flickering which was a little annoying; but overall, it was a great experience.

Food and service is outstanding, the hardest decision is ordering with so many great selections, vegetables are fresh, kale salad is out of this world and the main entrees will feed several people.

It was one of the best meals I've ever had. Our server was great. The only complaint I have is where our table was. We sat in the middle of the room right out in the open. Hard to relax and talk.

Food and service were great as usual. It would be nice to have a few more moderately priced wines. The cheapest Pinot Noir was $54.00. 🙄. The music is a nice touch.

We had three tiny scallops for antipasto, Caesar salad with very little dressing and hard to cut and eat on a stalk. Entre was Seabass with no flavor and turnips undercooked. Husband ordered 14 oz Ribeye that was average. Best thing was cheese cake. Spent over two hundred dollars and expected to be wowed. Dress was suppose to be business casual per Facebook page. We felt over dressed with shorts and flip-flops around us.

I love Volare, but after eating salmon on June 12, I got very ill overnight. I have been eating diet HMR food so it was the only food I had that was fresh. I won't order fish next time.

This was my time dining at Volare. The overall ambiance was great. My entree was decent due to the choice of sides. I ordered chicken Marsala and the sides were cabbage and beets. I ‘m sure plenty of people like the cabbage and beets; however, I do not eat cabbage or beets. When I asked the waitress, what other choices of vegetables do I have? She stated sautéed spinach. I don’t eat cooked spinach. I asked if they had potatoes or any other green vegetable. She was very accommodating and checked the kitchen for potatoes, which they had. I just wish the sides vegetables were more appetizing to one’s palate. My husband entree of veal Parmesan was really good. Overall the restaurant was nice

We love Volare. My food was even better than usual! Our issue was our server. While he was extremely competent, he continually referred to each of us as “miss.” If I had a dollar for every time, it would’ve paid the bill! Extremely annoying.

The food was great. They sat us in the back room of the restaurant and it felt like being in a dungeon. We did not like that. The server wasn’t as attentive as I would’ve expected from a high end restaurant. It took him a while to notice I had finished my drink before offering me another, then he forgot to get it for a while.
