The food was wonderful as usual, with the value at lunch being very good. It's clear they are understaffed. My server was doing everything for several tables. I didn't even see another server. While the service was a bit slow, he still did a fabulous job with everything.

Food was delicious and we had plenty of leftovers to take home and enjoy later. Again, service was excellent from the front of the house to those out on the floor.

I went with 3 friends and everyone loved their dinner! The Lobster Bisque was wonderful, and the shrimp dinner was large. The other dinners were portioned just right. I will say the chocolate cake was a disappointment as there was no frosting on the sides and it was very plain.

Volare has to be one of the best Italian spots in Louisville. Each course was well prepared and the specials were fantastic. Not a completely chef driven restaurant, but you can tell great care goes into each dish. If going here, would recommend getting a salad and pasta and staying away from a meat-centered main.

Amazing dining experience! A bit hard to find, but the food was very good and the service was even better! The hostess was the absolute sweetest, and so was the waitress. When my food was taking a very long time to come out, they immediately removed it from the bill, which I really appreciated. Pizza was wonderful, and all the other menu items looked good too. As soon as we left we wanted to go back for breakfast the next morning. The view was a huge plus too!

We went for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon with a party of 8. We were seated quickly and our server was very attentive. The atmosphere is casual but unique. The food is not your average bar food. It’s top notch! Delicious flavor and so many great flavors it was hard to choose. The garlic Parmesan fries are a must!

My three girlfriends and I lingered over dinner, unrushed, for 2 1/2 hours. We shared some wine, laughs and great fondue. We grilled our entree and I think I prefer that to frying in oil. The cheese fondue was great, had the bourbon one but my favorite was the turtle chocolate fondue. I just wanted to eat it by the spoonful! We each had the 1 29 dollar 3 course BFFF (meal special on Wednesday evenings) and shared 3 41 dollar 4 course meals. Honestly too much food. 2 of each would have been enough for the four of us to share. Lots of steak, chicken and shrimp on the 2 classic meat entree plates and mushrooms, asparagus and squash as well.
