    I made a reservation for outside. They tried to seat me inside. Hosted stated since they had room they just moved everybody in. That's not what I asked for. I was then seated outside. The waiter while competent with the order and serving of food was abrasive. My friend wanted to change something remove one item and add to. He said no you can't do two for one. She wasn't trying to. Happily would have paid. But not given the opportunity. Don't remove the plates of the person who's done while others are still eating. 4 different people kept pouring me tap water after I asked each one for sparkling water. There was no one else outside and they literally sat a group at the table right next to us. They could have left a table between us. A bunch of small things that add up and become annoying. The food was quite good. But not sure I'll be back.

    Nice Italian restaurant. It was a bit of a pull to get some of our items and continued service as we weren’t directly at the bar or at a dining room table. Food was good but pricey for the quality.

    The older lady hostess was extremely rude and bossy. The young girls were doing the best they could. How she spoke to them and the customers wasn’t ok. Gary was very nice and did a great job! The seabass was cold but had great flavor.

    Volare has always been one of my favorites in an area (Clifton) with great restaurants. My wife and I went for our anniversary and probably had the best meal we have eaten in months. Overall experience was terrific.

    We enjoyed our Valentine's celebration at Volare. It has the perfect date night atmosphere. Our appetizers were delightful. We did have to remind them to bring bread to the table as we saw that everyone else had some and they had not provided any to us. That wasn't a big deal and accidents happen, but it was one reason that we marked the service lower than the other review items. Our entrees were tasty. We're not wine drinkers, but they have a huge selection if you are looking for that. We recommend the Volare75 for a cocktail. Overall a great spot

    It was very good and I would definitely go back. I enjoyed my paperdelle with bacon and mushrooms. The bruschetta was very tasty and unique. My husband liked his chicken parmesan. I took a bit of his chicken and really enjoyed it.

    We always love this place it is one of our favorites. Only thing we didn’t like was the reservation seating at the bar. Made it very hard to get a drink while we were waiting on our party to arrive. Very uncomfortable standing or reaching over patrons while they were eating. At least designated an area to get up to the bar and maybe hang out a bit. We will be back.
