Our party of four had an excellent experience at Volare. We were celebrating a birthday for one of us and everything about our meal was celebratory! We all pronounced our meal to be "perfect" and the special dessert provided by Chef Josh topped it all off. We had an exceptional server, Kate, who knew the menu very well and took good care of us. Our busser was particularly good, but we are a bit biased in that direction. Our meal choices were varied: veal, duck, and pasta. Each was prepared and plated beautifully and were delicious. All in all, a delightful visit to a favorite restaurant.

The atmosphere was significantly better than the food. Service was fair. Food was average at best. Didn't expect this place to be on the level of Michelin restaurants, but it should strive to be better than diner food.

As amazing on Monday’s as it is on the weekend!

My wife and I decided to try Volare this evening. We guessed Chef Josh might take Monday’s off but guess what? The food and service was still the best anywhere.

From apps to my favorite, the Pappardelle Pasta, to the Veal Marsala and Creme Brûlée, it couldn’t have been better.

For a 67 year old retired couple who have eaten everywhere, to consistently say this is the best Italian restaurant anywhere “anytime”, well you get the picture.

Chef Josh, training and the management is beyond compare. Thanks.

Party of six with reservations. Food, service, ambience very nice. Only issue was sun coming through the door that was someewhat blinding for awhile. A shade or tinted glass would be helpful.

They boast of the Salmon for good reason! It may be the best I have every had. The eggplant appetizer was phenomenal! I wasn't a fan of my flourless chocolate cake, but my husband's gelato (made in-house) was amazing!

Everything was fabulous. The egg plant appetizer was out of this world!!!! Cocktails were on point. Chicken Marsala dish was sooo good. The jalapeño grits were amazing (I don’t normally eat those). Dessert was nothing less than spectacular. Our server Holly was spot on!

Our party of 4 enjoyed the outdoor seating area more than we expected. The sun shades and ceiling fans made it very pleasant. Of course, the food and service were excellent, as always.

Volare is an amazing Italian restaurant that is perfect for an intimate dinner. The chef’s menu is delicious which includes gluten free options. Anna is the best waitress and made our experience one of a kind. To Paul you have an amazing place to dine thank you for the memories that were made tonight!

I ordered the osso bucco and my boyfriend ordered the lamb and they brought me the lamb and him the osso bucco. We didn’t realize it until halfway through, because we had been there one time before and thought his meal looked familiar.

Caesar salad was tasteless. Sides were lukewarm to cold. Server was ... I don't know exactly how to describe him ... arrogant, condescending. Must admit the owners did their best to ammeliorate the situation and apologize for an extremely disappointing dinner ... particularly after the restaurant being so highly recommended.

This is by far the best restaurant in Louisville. I tried the Veal Marsala, which is the best meal I have had in years. The chef came over, and told me next time to try the Veal Saltimboca. And I am not a huge veal fan. All pastas are homemade, and every meal is better than the last. Service is wonderful, without being intruding and bothersome. A+++++++++++++++++!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hands down the best meal I have ever had in Louisville. We had never been to this restaurant before but finally decided to give it a try. The food, the service, the ambience and the personal attention by the chef/owner made this a must Di again experience. I had the Limone Vitello and it was melt in your mouth superb and my wife’s salmon was the same. There are certainly some items on the menu that are a bit pricey, but our food was good value (i.e. worth every dime). Will hopefully have another opportunity to visit again one day.

It is rare that I find a restaurant that offers outstanding service and food. My dining experience at Volare was absolutely perfect. The server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. We asked a lot of questions about the Italian portion of the wine list. I was with a group of girlfriends so there were lots of sharing and splits and the kitchen accommodated all of our needs. The general manager stopped by our table and couldn't have been more gracious. It was late for dining in Louisville but the restaurant was packed and there was great energy. The entertainment was fantastic. I would go back just for the entertainment alone.
