    Had a lovely meal with friends. It was very busy and a bit loud, but the staff at Volares works hard and the food is very good. Our favorites are veal Parmesan and the rigatoni with fennel sausage. They also have a great gnocchi gratin as a side dish that is also hearty enough for a smaller meal.

    So much about this place is to love. But sitting on the patio has it's concerns. The overhead lights are extremely bright, shining directly into your eyes. Very uncomfortable and couldn't find a way to mitigate this. We moved from one table to another to avoid the extremely hot overhead heater. The heaters shut off once a certain temp is reached in the patio area. FOOD IS FANTASTIC! It isn't inexpensive, however. Service is wonderful, as the staff are friendly souls. Other than the (kind of negative) winter patio experience, I love this place and look forward to that special occasion to spend the $$ to visit again!

    My wife wanted to take me to volare for my birthday, we had a 6 pm reservation, we arrived a bit early on purpose to give the restaurant time to find a table for us if things were busy. So we arrived at 5:40 and had no problem waiting for a table to open up, they had to add tables in spots they wouldn’t normally have to be able to seat us and we didn’t mind waiting, they seated us around 6:05 so not bad at all no complaints. However the table they sat us at was a tiny table wedged between two other tables with barely enough room to walk between and people kept bumping into us as they walked by, as well as the noise level being wedged between two large parties was very loud. I couldn’t even hear my wife talk it was so loud in there. To make matters worse, no waiters or waitresses were aware that the added table they used to seat us was in their section so we did not even get a waitress until 6:30, 25 minutes after we sat down. When we did finally get our waitress we could tell she was overburdened with the amount of work they had. The restaurant clearly had overbooked themselves and the waitstaff had a hard time keeping up, we ordered at 6:30, and we didn’t get our salads for our entrees until closer to 7, then our mains came around 7:15 or 7:20. Our waitress also did not come by to top off our waters or ask if we needed anything, again not blaming her, we saw they had her in the bar section and running all over the place. We also had to wait another 20 minutes at the end of the meal just to try and get them to bring our check, they had a guy clearing plates and bringing out boxes for guests and he had to find our waitress and ask her to bring us our check. Overall the food was good but the dining experience was so poor we will probably not be back for a very long time.

    We had a great visit on our first outing to this restaurant, so we booked a second visit. The food was not as good as the first visit and did not include as much seafood in the pasta. For the price, the value was not there. Also, we ordered a drink with crown Royal, but the provided crown Royal reserve without asking first, and the price was crazy. The most disappointing thing was that we sat in the outdoor covered patio, and the heat lamps never turned off. It was SO hot. We couldn’t enjoy our meal. My husband actually had to step outside to cool down. We complained twice to our server but nothing happened. Not even an apology. That is poor service. We likely will not be back.

    Very nice neighborhood restaurant with a good vibe. It's on the noisy side and with tables close it's difficult to converse. Our waitress was pleasant, engaging and knowledgeable. The veal Marcella was very good and the Veal cop special was delicious. I recommend and we will return again.

    Nothing festive about Volare. Too bad. This time of year, one comes to Expect it. It was our holiday dinner, but looks just like it does in Sept. very, very slow service and food was served cold! Waited that long and then it’s cold… Huge disappoint. We’re big fans and dine here often, but really missed the mark this time. Miss Dino coming around to chat up the guests. Understand prob too busy…but it was a nice gesture. We’ll come back and hope for better.,

    Typically I would give them 5 stars as I love this place. However steak was prepared incorrectly, wait staff was not great, and for a higher end place, people wearing baseball hats.
