We went to Volare for our anniversary and could not be happier with the experience. Service was outstanding. Our server was spot on with recommendations. We will be back!
My wife and I would consider ourselves as foodies. Volare is our favorite Italian restaurant in Louisville. We make sure to try something different each time we dine there.
Great ambiance for couples, or girls/guys dinner!
Servings are Large!
Excellent wine list!
Ask for what you want - they go above and beyond to accommodate!
Bacon dust Bloody Mary is a must!!!
This is our new favorite Italian restaurant. Went to celebrate our 9th anniversary.
Great food and service!
Our server was excellent for our party of 7 to celebrate my daughters 24th. They made special Covid accommodations for my mother.
Everyone loved their entrees. Care and thought goes into their dishes.
Took my lady to Volare for her birthday dinner. Great value, experience, value, service, and food for the price. We had an appetizer, salad, two entrees, and a bottle of wine for $100. And Chef Josh also prepared a surprise dessert for us to share... which was delicious!
I recently moved back to Kentucky from Las Vegas, and Volare was comparable to any fine restaurant in my former hometown. I will definitely return to Volare in the future.
Just a restaurant. Food good but not up to the hype. Had fruit of the sea and lamb in pepper noodles. Mushy noodles loads of broth, very little hearty stuff. Huge portions thrown in a bowl. I’d pay twice as much for half as much if quality was there. Asked for romantic table, stuck in the middle of brightly lit group table room. Plenty of other seats available, made reservations 8 weeks ago, guess you have to tip hostess to get a good seat. Was there for birthday, was given no desert choice but given oh hum cheesecake. Would have happily paid for another desert but just handed check. We enjoy decadent deserts and glass of port or cognac. Had already prepped wife to try some Louis xIII. Too busy rushing us through. Looking for dining experience not just another restaurant, took my money elsewhere for the evening.
We ate again for her birthday. We sat in the outer court and had to have the staff adjust the heat and fans so folks were comfortable. We lost about 15 minutes of comfort there. Service was fine for the first 1/2 hour until a party of 8 took over which made our server do 4 tables instead of just ours. Service was very slow. -- Time for desert arrived and we expected the usual birthday greeting. Not so. The server had to find manager to get approval for it. She arrived and slid the tiramisu on the table with no birthday greeting or candle. Just mozied to the table of 8. There she remained with us waiting for the check. Again slow to respond due to her other duties.
All in all, we gave it a B instead of the usual A+.
Best DiMare and Best Lasagne in Louisville; Always have great specials also. Our new favorite place to eat after not visiting for several years.
Great customer service with the perfect culinary experience.
Always the best experience at Volare. Great food, great service and a great environment. Our go to restaurant for all occasions.
Service, food and drinks are always outstanding. May be the best restaurant in Louisville.
Food was delicious! The blue kale salad was amazing. Filet and pasta was perfectly cooked. Chicken parm was delicious. Great service! Cannot wait to go back!
Never disappoints ! The sea bass was wonderful and the kale salad was the best !
Really enjoyed our dinner. Food and service were fantastic. We will be back soon!
There was nothing wrong with the food but there just wasn’t much flavor in anything. Cesar salads, beef carpaccio, tilefish, lamb ragu all bland. Scallops were cooked well (so was everything else) but had too much garlic. Great technique and presentation but the flavor just wasn’t there which is most important.
Outstanding as always
Our servers ++A+
Outstanding as always! Jonathan and his team are always on point, favorite spot in town.
We love Volare! Wonderful food, ambiance and top notch service. Consistently excellent!
Food and service was outstanding! I will definitely be back.
This place is absolutely phenomenal! The server was extremely knowledgeable and very accommodating. The Quilt Cabernet was superb and I would highly recommend it. The presentation of each dish was like a piece of art. I will definitely be back!
Great food, service, and ambiance. Frequently dine at Volare and this is one of the best options for a special occasion. Covid protocols are very well done. Desserts are amazing. Lemon sorbet was so good as well as the chicken Parmesan.
We celebrated our 10yr Anniversary there. The food and service are always absolutely outstanding, and Friday night was no different. This is our #1 restaurant!
Everything was great!! Chef Moore even sent over a sample of the special for us to try.
Another delicious dinner at a local favorite! Volare never disappoints, whether it is for a nice celebratory dinner or drinks and bites with friends at the bar. This visit was on the celebration side, for my husband's birthday, and they did not disappoint. As luck would have it, it was 1/2 price wine (bottles) night. We started with the stuffed clams which were quite tasty. My husband had the lasagna which is one of his favs, and it was hearty and delicious. I had the pappardelle boscaiola, house made pasta, mushrooms, bacon and a delicious sauce. I added sausage to the dish and it really rounded it out. We finished with a slice of the heath cheesecake which was really great treat to end the meal with (on the house even!!).
Beyond the food, the service was wonderful. We wanted to sit outside but where unable to, however they did accomodate us on the covered patio which was very nice. Seating was spread and had no concerns with others being to close. The silverware, napkins and bread plates were sealed and not opened until we sat down. Our server provided excellent service and was very detailed in going over specials and wine suggestions as well.
Each visit reminds us that we need to visit more often.
Love chef Josh and the wonderful team. Yummy and fantastic as always!!!
The food, drinks & service are top notch at Volare. The lasagna is second to none and desserts are all fantastic. The service is always professional yet personable. And for both the Executive Chef & General Manager to do a table touch and genuinely take a moment to have a conversation makes this one of the greatest restaurants in town. Kudos!
It’s always a great restaurant. Perfect service and tasty food. Thanks
Everything was up to par, except that the restaurant was packed! While there were plastic separations at the bar, every seat was taken. During Covid limitations, this was surprising at an excellent restaurant.
