If you're visiting Louisville and willing to drive a few miles out of downtown I strongly recommend VOLARE. There were six of us for dinner. Many of the entrées appealed to us. We tried the duck and the salmon off the menu and a Sea bass which was a specialty that night. Everything came out hot and was very well... More

I had a business dinner at Volare and the food was absolutely amazing. Stunning carpaccio served with fresh burrata was a joy to eat, and a perfectly cooked Chilean sea bass for main course did not disappoint at all. My only regret was that I had no room left for a desert - they all looked delicious. Service was friendly,... More

I have wanted to visit Volare for years. My family surprised me with dinner Saturday night for my birthday. The food, atmosphere, service, music, met my expectations 150%. WE cannot wait to return. For my birthday, they served, without charge their featured desert of the evening. It was ....amazing. Served with miniture flowers and a birthday candle. Three of us... More

We ordered salmon, mezzaluba and lasagna. All was tasty. Salad with beets was a nice surprise! Heath cheesecake was rich and enough for Two to share.

Had read some reviews recently that did not reflect our opinions of past experiences. We figured at least we would enjoy our favorite eggplant appetizer and then make a determination. Well, be rest assured. It is as good as ever. I am also a big fan of their marinara sauce so I was pleasantly surprised when the waiter appeared with... More

How this can't be the best restaurant in Louisville, I have no idea. The food was spectacular. The bruschetta was one of the best things I have ever eaten. The calamari was outstanding as well with 3 different sauces. The lasagna was very good (8 out of 10). The portion size was excellent. The service was a 10 out of... More

We stopped by Volare on a weekday evening for dinner. There was live music at a volume that was very nice. The atmosphere is relaxing. We started with the Bruschetta which was delicious. For Entrees I had the Pollo Limone and my husband had chicken Marsala. They were both very good. Our waitress Arron was a delight. She was there... More

Volare has been a favorite of our family since it opened over a decade ago. We had not been for several months. They have stepped up their game. The food was terrific. Our starter ,rotollini di melanzane, was a great combo of eggplant, creamy cheese, a wonderful tomato sauce, served at a pleasing warm temperature. My roast duck with an... More

Ate there for the first time last night and was not disappointed. First, you must make a reservation or you risk not being seated. Second, this is not an inexpensive restaurant, just know that going in. I started out with the beet and goat cheese salad; all the pieces of the salad balanced each other perfectly. For the main I...
