Such a great dining experience. Everything made in house and nice enough for the adults to feel special but comfortable enough for the kids to love it. My son gave the house spaghetti and meatballs a 10/10. Kids were not confined by the menu. They...More

The food alone is worth a return visit Crowded, full busy Italian restaurant but our waiter could have cared less about us after a big part next to us was seated and we felt a little rushed with our meal. Still would go back.

Volare is a must! They have the most delicious food! Caprese salad, Caesar salad, Risotto, Gnocchi and Steaks are our favorites. The staff is so welcoming and they really take care of you. Our family loves Volare!

I visit this classic Italian restaurant every time I'm in Chicago, & it never disappoints! The Ceasar salad, the chicken parmigiana, the dessert- all magnificent! Located just one block from the Magnificent Mile, this eatery is a must if you like Italian food!
