My wife is a vegetarian, so finding a place that we both like is often a challenge. Volare's did not disappoint. I had a wonderful lasagna with sausage, beef, and ricotta. Portions were huge and I took much of it home with me. They prepared a special veggie-pasta hybrid dish for my wife with a cream sauce that she loved.... More

I have visited Volare many times, but have never reviewed it. I felt it was selfish of me to keep this fabulous restaurant all to myself. The food is always delicious and on point. The plates are full and if you leave there hungry, it's your own fault. On a recent visit we ordered the muscles for an appetizer. One... More

Volare has an extensive selection of Italian wines. We came for a special occasion and found the service and round corner table most accommodating for a gathering. The bruschetta with truffle oil is outstanding, so be sure to include that in your appetizer selection. The menu offered much to choose from, and each of us was happy with our pasta... More

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant that reminds me of the food we had while traveling in Italy. It was very beautifully served and tasted magnificent. They also have half price wine of one day, can't remember if it is Wednesday or Thursday. Also they had a singer in the bar that was very talented and made my anniversary even... More

We had a group of eight and made a reservation, good thing we did because it was crowded. The wine recommended was great and it went well with the braised ribs that I had. The service was good and the manager came by to check on us.

The best Italian by far in Louisville. Great service, delicious and beautiful plates, and a good atmosphere. Carpaccio was out of this world! Tiramisu was so good it but others to shame.

Free... More

Our waitress was Natacha. She was one of the most professional servers I've ever encountered. She knew her menu items....ALL of them. She knew how to serve with professionalism. We were quite impressed and pleased. Thank you! Now on to the food. We got the eggplant appetizer. Thinly sliced eggplant with mascarpone cheese. Wow! The parmigiana was excellent and rib... More
