My hubby and I ate here on a Saturday evening for our anniversary. We had a reservation and were seated promptly on the patio. Our table wasn’t the most comfortable, it was very small, close to a fire hydrant and was also wobbly. Someone came over and took care of leveling it out for us. It was too busy to ask to move to a different table so we made the best of it. We were just excited to be out, it had been awhile! Our drinks took 15 min from the time we sat down, but these days we know extra patience is necessary. Someone did bring us bread (soooo good!) and water within minutes and we appreciated that. Our server was friendly, he did check back on us often. Our food overall was delicious however my husband’s steak came back well done and he asked for medium. Our server took it back and brought a new one done correctly within minutes. That was impressive! I had the seafood linguine which was very good too. Creme Brûlée desert with berries was delicious! Side note - I have always left 5 star reviews, this one fell just a tad short this time. We still enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be back again. Thank you!

This used to be one of my favorite restaurant. This is the second time I went there in one month and food is horrible and undercooked both time. Service is horrible. Manager is rude. Think twice before eating at this restaurant. They charged me for my food that was under cooked…and I didn’t eat it. I will always voice my opinion on horrible service. Don’t eat here!!!!!!!!!

Really slow and delayed service. Wrong attitude. Never ever to go there again. They can not prepare an octopus. Steak was good but service was not good.

Tasty food with generous portions. Good wine list and authentic Italian dishes along with American choices on the menu. Attentive service. Our favorite restaurant. Whenever we take friends there, they all say, “We are coming back even though it’s a bit of a drive.”

One of my favorite restaurants in this area. Would have given service and ambience a 5, however, hostesses were not nice or welcoming. That has been our experience the past several reservations, which is embarrassing since we have brought first-timers with us. Also, we seem to always get a table for six when we only have 4, which makes it difficult to hear one another.

Food is always excellent! Server was extremely unenthusiastic, and he’s not NEW! Never shared anything about the menu with us, featured anything. Asked advice, didn’t get it. Filet and medallions are always terrific .
Wish he cared a bit more that we were there…saw Dino out talking to SOME tables but never stopped by ours, and I had new guests with us.
Fortunately overall experience was still great as the food was perfection!

Great food, background music, and atmosphere. The only complaint is that the two hostess girls need better customer service. The last three times we were in they were irritated, unfriendly, and not accommodating. We will be back as we live everything else.

First of all our server was great. Attentive, quick with any requests, smiling.
We were on the patio which opens to the street, so the noise level was to be expected.
The menu was quite abbreviated from what's shown on the website. There's no mention of this on the website.
Their drink pour is paltry for the $16 charge.
The food was good.
I'd recommend it with the above qualifications.

Our server was aware that it was a family reunion and did not rush any detail. I so appreciate his sensitivity to the importance of the precious time with my “long-lost” family member. The food was outstanding (as always.) many thanks!

The air conditioning was in full force overhead they made adjustment snd 10 minutes later it was again full force.
The papardelle was not hot when brought to table and I suspect it was sitting on counter awaiting waitstaff as the other dish was hot.
A drink order was taken but not delivered for 20+ minutes

This is a favorite restaurant of ours snd we appreciate the owner trying her best to facilitate service

I had heard great things about Volare, so my husband and I made reservations for 4pm last Saturday.

The restaurant was empty when we arrived, so we asked to be seated on the patio. My husband expressed a desire to sit by the open window since it was a nice day. The hostess informed him, rather abruptly that it was a four person table and they needed it for another party. We were seated at a small two person table in the corner right up against the inside window. We told her that we completely understood since we assumed they would be busy for the dinner hour(they remained virtually empty while we were there). That was until we saw another couple get seated at that same four person table ten minutes later.
Hmmm.

The waiter was very friendly and attentive. He is the reason for the two stars.

The atmosphere was lacking. I sat looking at a brick planter filled with dying plants of various types(not aesthetically pleasing).

The food:
My husband ordered the veal parmigiana, NYC salad(we shared) and two cocktails.

He reported that the veal tasted over cooked, the crust tasted burnt. He enjoyed the salad. His drinks were exceptionally weak, especially for Long Island iced tea.

My meal was equally disappointing.
I ordered the ravioli with wild mushrooms and the first bite or two tasted quite good, but less than halfway through the meal, I realized how incredibly salty everything tasted, so much so, that I couldn’t even finish my meal.

All of that for $130.00. Needless to say, we won’t be returning.
I’m really sad to say that since I had high hopes for this establishment based on previous reviews and recommendations.

Went there for my Birthday, as I have wanted to visit Volare for some time. Our party of 5 arrived early and still able to get seated even though the restaurant was quite busy, which was nice. Ordered drinks and 2 appetizers, which were enjoyable. Ordered our meals, I ordered the Linguini which was described ON THE MENU as Lobster, clams, shrimp, scallops, tomato, calabrian chili. Meal included a mixed green salad with house vinaigrette which was tasty. Our meals arrived and mine had several large mussels in the dish. I have had several bad experiences with mussels, and I would have never ordered this dish had I known. I mentioned it to the waitress and she apologized and would let them know. No one in management ever came to the table to speak with me (my birthday) about this issue. I ended up trading the dish with my son who had ordered the filet special. I was supremely disappointed with the lack of response from the establishments manager. Needless to say I will not be back.
