Excellent overall experience! Charming ambiance great for a special occasion or romantic night out with beautiful murals and rat pack type music playing throughout the dining area. Service was exceptional thanks to a friendly server that was very knowledgeable of the menu and able to offer suggestions when asked. Table bussers and water severs were also very friendly and timely. Lots of wine and liquors to choose from. Also enjoyed the specialty cocktails list. The food was outstanding (scallop appetizer, veal saltimbocca, ribeye special) and the tiramisu was some of the best I’ve ever had! We would definitely go back for another special occasion. Unfortunately the price point, although worth it, makes it hard to put into our regular rotation for date nights.

Could have been me, but it was noisy and I wasn’t in the mood for noise. Our food was great
Drinks were great. Wasn’t too packed in either
We were right by the kitchen and thinking about it that could have been the noise

We will go back. Excellent appetizers excellent brinks all in all we all enjoyed everything

Volare was one of the best restaurants I've experienced in Louisville, or anywhere for that matter. The food came out hot, and each component of the dish was equally hot. Our server was extremely knowledgable, courteous, and didn't hover over us. There were adequate staff assisting him in serving us, and the balance between not enough, and too much, was perfect. To my surprise Wednesday was half-price night on wine by the bottle. They have a very good wine selection with a balance of California wines and Old World varieties.

Since 2020 and COVID restrictions we had not been to a restaurant for an outstanding chef prepared dinner with close friends.
Our dinners were all very flavorful, presented well and served on a timely basis. We enjoyed the ambiance with friends and it was relatively quiet so we did not have to yell to be heard.
The only criticism was the waiter spoke very quickly making it sometime hard to understand how food was prepared and he was not as engaging or friendly as I would have expected.

We had a great time! Carrie was our server and she constantly checked on us to make sure we had everything we needed. She was cheerful and courteous. The food was delicious - presentation, quality and quantity were excellent. Was a little disappointed in the Manhattan cocktail that two of us ordered. It was slightly different from the norm (it had an orange peel garnish instead of a cherry garnish), but it was still tasty - tended more toward an Old Fashioned than a Manhattan though. There also were a number of flying bugs that pestered us throughout our time there - not flies or gnats, more like large fruit flies. Still, the overall experience was delightful! We will do it again!!

My two friends and I were wowed by Volare Italian Restaurant. The wait staff was most charming. The food was incredibly distinctive and absolutely delicious. One of the specials for the night involved heritage tomatoes the chef had brought in from his own garden, and he served the tomato slices topped with disks of fresh mozzarella! Who could ask for a more unique experience?

The Valet parking great.
The service by our waiter Dwight was outstanding. He was so attentive, knowledgeable and his recommendations were spot on.
The Calamari and the mussels appetizers were so scrumptious. As for the entrees, the Sea Bass was so flavorful and the Braised short ribs were delicious. For dessert we had Tiramisu which was so light and a perfect end to a wonderful dinner experience.

An evening at Volare is always a great evening out. They have the best staff in town, well trained, attentive and courteous, but never intrusive. It’s also obvious that they kitchen has maintained its’ reputation of excellence through the last year of the pandemic.
Volare hasn’t missed a beat!
