Excellent cocktails, appetizer, and entrees. Our waiter Jonathan was proficient and personable. As has been mentioned, the wine list is a bit pricey. But it has offerings that cannot be found in your local wine store, and we found a bottle we enjoyed for $40. Winter Park is not exactly renowned for its restaurants, and this one is very good.

In the end Volario's was a nice dinner. Salads, brussel sprouts and diavolo pizza were all yummy.

We were very disappointed in a few things. First, we had made our dinner reservation 3 weeks in advance, but when we arrived they seated in the bar underneath the TV set playing a hockey game. The waiter (seemed stoned) was pretty clueless and brought us the wrong wine list TWICE, before realizing that it was actually the right wine list. So we sat there for a long time with nothing to drink.

Since there are so few decent restaurants in Winter Park to choose from, Volario's is still recommended because the food is good. Just keep expectations for good service low.

We ate twice at Volario's last weekend, and everything, food, beverage and service, was excellent. On Friday evening, I had the vesuvio pizza, and my spouse had the Pappardelle with sausage and both were excellent. On Saturday evening we dined with friends and had the risotto cakes, Brussels sprouts, lasagna, braised lamb, Caesar salad, and pasta with clams. Everything was excellent, portions were generous, and the servers were attentive and very friendly. I highly recommend Volario's!

Outstanding home made pasta. The dining rooms are spacious and amenable to group conversation. Wine list has reasonably priced bottles available -e.g. Schild Estate Barossa Shiraz for $56. Second time visited with consistent results. A top choice in Winter Park

Always terrific dining here.
High quality, fresh food in a comfortable setting. The open kitchen is across the way and not intrusive.
Amazed it's not more crowded since the chef is consistently one of the best in the area.
(Server Josh makes great suggestions, remembers and takes care of us each time!)

Service and food were mediocre. Took roughly 10+ minutes after we were seated to even talk to someone. Seemed as though every time someone came by to take our food/drink order they were already trying to walk away. Never once experienced a feeling that we being taken care of or that anyone even seemed to care whether or not we actually WERE being taken care of. Food was alright, definitely not good enough to justify the prices. Expected more from a Devil's Thumb affiliate.

This is a lovely restaurant, great wait staff, and pleasant atmosphere. My husbands meal was excellent. He had lasagna. The focaccia bread was amazing. I was less impressed with my meal. The Brussels sprouts were over salted. My linguini with clams in wine sauce had wonderful pasta, but otherwise was bland. Perhaps this was not the meal to order there? Overall, we would go back, but I would try something else. Prices are reasonable.

We were greeted enthusiastically. The hostess recognized the "special event" that we were celebrating and brought us complimentary champagne. We had a nice, quite table for two. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and funny, but knew when to interact and when to hang back. Great time ! I would recommend Volario's to anyone looking for good food and excellent service.

I have been to Volario's a couple times and have always been impressed. This current visit was not very good compared to past visits. First, we were a little early and the hostess was not very kind nor accommodating so we went to the front bar to get a drink. There were 3 people behind the bar and none of them were doing anything we go there but none would even look us in the face to ask if we wanted a drink. Finally who appeared to be the head bar tender did take care of us but he definitely seemed like this was extra work for him to be doing. We then went to our table and our waiter was great. He had lot's of recs for food and wine and really took care of us well, which was the best part of the entire evening. The meals were ok overall. A couple were really good, but one of us got the clam pasta dish and then noodles were under cooked and had no flavor. Luckily our company made it a great night, but will be a while before we return.

The hostess at Volario’s went above and beyond for us because we had traffic challenges and I had to call twice to change our reservation time. Each time she was very nice and accomodating about it and when we finally arrived seated us immediately. The service was good and so was the food. I had the lasagna, my husband had the mushroom papparadelle and my son had a pizza. While all of the food was very tasty, I think my son made the best choice. His pizza was delicious - big, cheesy, hot with a nice crisp crust. Would definitely recommend it.

Service was sporadic and then all of a sudden the server decided to try and take my plate from me before I was done...didn't even ask first. The server also appeared to either be really hung over or high....

The food however was great and the pasta not too heavy.

Winter Park, CO, near the ski resort of the same name, used to lack really good restaurants. We feel that Valarios is the best of the excellent restaurants that have been established within the last few years. Really good Italian food, as well as steaks an d seafood. Quiet ambiance, great drinks, good, friendly service, fair prices.

2/4 dishes were what was ordered. Waiter didn’t know what was in dish and needed to bring back to kitchen to “investigate”. Food over salted. Lasagna was the best dish of the group was the cheapest. Really, really disappointed and changed our opinion of Devils Thumb Ranch.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving meal at Volarios. 2 of us had the turkey dinner and the other 2 had pasta. Everything was delicious. The wait staff went out of their way to accommodate my daughter's celiac needs. Atmosphere was perfect for a mountain holiday dinner. We will be back.
