Food is always excellent, as is the atmosphere. Service, however, has fallen off dramatically the last few times I’ve been to Volare. Not sure what’s happening with the wait staff.

I love this place. Requested a corner table for a romantic date and they had it saved for us! The hospitality is outstanding. We ended up buying gift certificates for our friends before we left dinner. True Italian food.

I’m Italian so I can judge very well the quality of what you get in an Italian restaurant. The place is generally nice, we went on a Saturday night to celebrate a birthday so I was hoping to get a relatively quiet table. The restaurant was very busy, we were getting a table in the middle of the room but as one couple left we could get a table in one of the booth which was more appropriate for this type of event. The lady that was managing the reservation was flexible and kind to allow us to change.
We ordered 2 appetizers, a burrata and a plate of mixed salami.
According to my girlfriend the burrata was ok but actually very small compared to what you usually get in Italy. For a US appetizer I would say ok. From my side I ordered this appetizer

Affettati e Formaggi Misti
Prosciutto, Mortadella, Coppa, Soppressata,
Parmigiano, Pickled Vegetables, Olives

My plate was probably more disappointing, out of all the salami only the prosciutto crudo was very good, mortadella was very poor, there was no coppa and no soprressata which were replaced by 2 types of salami, both on the *acid” type, not good. Olives were also medium to low level and the cheese which was supposed to be Parmesan cheese was just a very bad copy... taste was like pecorino if you know the Italian cheese.I had to ask bread to the waiter, otherwise no one was taking us bread which is a must with this type of appetizer.After the appetizers we got 2 salads, which were good and fresh but with too much vinegar dressing. Main course was the meat which is very expensive here, my girlfriend took a fillet that was very good and I took the manzo, a pretty impressive ribeye.My ribeye was also very good but actually too much burned so my first bite was a bad surprise as it was completely burnedI had to take out the burned portion of the steak. If you pay 64 bucks for a steak it’s normal to pretend. Overall meat was very good but at this level of cost (abt 100/person) you expect better quality

Thursday evening and it was mostly empty. We chose out door seating, shortly after sitting down, live entertainment started. While the man were quite good, it was to loud and disrupted personal conversation.
The food was good. The service was excellent

Enjoyed the food which included the nyc salad, minestrone, and we split the two 4oz fillets. Also very much enjoyed a bottle of the Klinker Brick zin. Our only issues were with service and the manager who lacked any people skills. The service issue related to not being told upfront what was included in our meal. The manager came into play when our waitress suggested we talk with her about why our $20 coupon wasn’t accepted. Apparently our coffee and cappuccino were not included in our food total, leaving us $8 short of the 70 required by the coupon. The manager was less than cordial and seemed to imply we were idiots for not being able to interpret the coupon. She definitely left a bad taste in our mouth after a very good meal.

Great food as always. Service not as good as previously experienced or other tables around us that night. Server didn't even bother to tell us what specials would be available, we didn't even know there were any until we overheard another server tell his table. Inconsistent service quality is unfortunate for this place, as we previously enjoyed going there.

Sat outside when it was Hot and humid. Not their fault. Our choice. Large setup near us. As people begin to arrive they stand around our table chit chatting. We asked Waiter to do something where he shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Many people couldn't figure out how to get in. Not worth the cost in our opinion.

Our entrees were excellent... I had an whole fish, and my companion had lamb chop. The restaurant was not very busy; however our service was slow and somewhat disappointing - for example, we had to ask for bread, refills on water, etc. The entrees seemed a little overpriced.

My Reservation at 8, and the table was not ready. The hostess said there would be no indoor table available despite reservation. We sat outside which was fine except for they did not light any of the available torches and all of got bit up from head to toe by mosquitos. It also took over an hour for get our dinner and they continued to say the kitchen was backed up. I had been to this restaurant 5 years prior when it was in a different location and was let down by the service this time around but the food was excellent.
