    Absolutely AMAZING restaurant! We went to Louisville for a girls' weekend and had reservations at Volare. We spend the day shopping, and when people asked us where were dining, we would say Volare, and all would comment about what a great place it was. They were not wrong! We had reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. Our server, Beth, was SUPERB!! She made great recommendations on the specials and regular menu items. The kale salad (special dish) was outstanding, and I don't even like kale! The soup was a potato gouda soup...OMG! AMAZING! The six of all tried different items (bolognaise, sea bass limone (special), chicken piccata, pappardelle, ravioli, and another past dish. Portions are VERY GENEROUS...totally shareable or great for leftovers. They had an amazing wine selection and craft cocktails. Save room for dessert. The tiramisu is OVER THE TOP! We were there on a Friday night, and they had live music. All in all a GREAT place to dine while in Louisville.

    We enjoyed great bar seating with a view of Napoleon singing. Half price bottles of wine was a hit! And the ever amazing Chef Josh Moore delivered with the specials…. the Golden Tilefish with linguine puttanesca was delicious, as well as the filet with risotto and Gorgonzola. LOVE this place!!

    Reuniting with out of town friends, we could not have selected a better place or atmosphere to dine! A special thank you to Jonathan for accommodating our group of 8, and to Gar"r"y (with 2 r's) for his superior service. The music, Napoleon?, capped off a special evening.

    We love this place. Very good service from managers to bidders. Nice drinks. Robbie, who sings in the bar area, is something special to say the least. Food is good although my pasta was a little too al dente for me. Lots of locals eat here in a regular basis. Volare is definitely worth a try.

    Always on our short list when bringing guests for a first time Volare experience. Our friends were ecstatic about Volare. Two of us had this weeks take on gourmet mussels. You never disappoint. They are always sumptuous. Servers play such a key role in the evening and Brandy brought her 'A' game. Thanks again for a great night out.

    The staff here are a true team, working together as a well-oiled machine. From the you guy carrying out all those huge, heavy trays to the guy clearing our dishes away, to getting our drinks to us lightning fast, this team of waitstaff are the best. The food is always remarkable in concept to execution. Always wait to hear what the many daily specials are because each and every one of them are truly special and worthy of consideration. The only problem is choosing from so many exceptional options. We're usually too full for dessert, but their desserts here are so delicious, I highly recommend you save room for some dessert, even if it's just one of their homemade gelatos!
