It was just as I remember from the last time I dined there except for our entrees. We ordered very different things, but they were excessively salty. We went ahead and ate. They were otherwise very good. I get the feeling they forgot they’d already salted and salted again.

Went during a weekend trip to Louisville. The restaurant was crowded but the food was absolutely amazing! The non-traditional bruschetta is delicious & the Osso Bucco was falling apart & amazing.

Definitely recommend.

Our anniversary dinner was excellent. Bradley, our server, was friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food was outstanding and all of the staff was attentive. It was a full house on a Wednesday night! Great night!

We had not been to Volare in a few years and started at the bar at Happy Hour, then went to a reserved dinner table a half hour later. The pasta was delicious and the waitress was extremely attentive. A mystery: Someone told them it was our anniversary and we were given a complimentary dessert. Still don’t know how they knew!

We enjoyed a family celebration, including two children, this week. Server and staff went out of their way to accommodate their needs and made sure that we were served attentively and professionally. Food and ambiance were outstanding. Kudos to Jonathan Tarullo for assisting us to make this happen! We will be visiting again soon!

We often use Volare as our go to place for special occasions and out of town guest. Last night we celebrated my husband’s 75th Birthday!! Eli was our server and he was very attentive and kind. He was great! We had a lovely meal and a great bottle of wine that was recommended.

The food was outstanding. The service was spot on. It is a little too loud for dining with a large group. Smaller groups are better for conversations in the dining areas.

Huge portions but a kitchen that lets burnt and overcooked food go out to waiting customers. Waiting because they are understaffed. Our waiter worked very hard dealing alone except for runners taking care of over 20 people.
Understaffing is COVID related, but a kitchen which sends out burnt and overcooked food is just a sign of neglect.
Sending food back was not an option unless one was willing to wait....a very long time. A popular place obviously and I am sure it is the portions. Even the executions that weren’t burnt were overly salted and sauces were thin and runny. Not a place to revisit.

We are trying new restaurants every Wednesday for date night. Chef Geoff at fork and barrel said volare needed to be on our list! He was correct because it has been our favorite so far! Our server was absolutely amazing and half price bottles made our night! We will definitely be back!

This is a fantastic Italian restaurant with great service, delicious food, affordable wine and lively ambience. The only negative is it is loud- 98 dBels at my table. The rotolini melanzana is to die for and the veal saltimboca wonderful. The lamb risotto was a little to peppery.
