About
Volare Italian Restaurant is born from the passion of food by two Calabresian's, Ernesto Rappoccio and Fortunato Favasuli. They arrived in Wales on 29th January 2008 to learn English and immediately fell in love with the country. In creating the restaurant, they wanted to bring a slice of their hometown, Reggio Calabria, along with the traditions and cuisine to Wales.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Love this place. Recommended by our B & B host and we were not disappointed. Really tasty food and fast efficient service with a sense of humour. Prices were really good too and a satisfying wine selection. Spot on.

Another fantastic meal at our favourite restaurant, "Volare"! We went for my son's 16th birthday. We chose from the Early Bird menu at 5.30pm. Plenty of choice. We had garlic bread to start, followed by Lasagne, Penne al Salmone and Carbonara. Desserts were delicious, profiteroles...and Nutella cheesecake. The service was outstanding as always, and the staff made my son's day by singing Happy birthday! We will visit again soon.More

The table we were sat down was next to the front door so anyone that came in made a draft right over me , also a big glass window as you wait to come in made you look like a fish in a fish bowl...for all to watch while sat there made it very uncomfortable ,, the brie wedge deep fried was ice cold in the middle so had two bites but was made in edible , I ordered the vegetable risotto which was supposed to have a rich creamy roasted pepper sauce was sauce less , the rice while well cooked was over powered by the only vegetable in it which was cooked with was aubergine which I hate so maybe when advertising as vegetable risotto maybe call it aubergine rissoto , the over Italian spoken waiter was pleasant but the heavily cigarette breath was not nice to smell , I will not be returning nor recommending this place to eat ,and as for the 2 hour window for your meal 45mins was plentyMore

Looked up Italian restaurants read trip advisor and made the booking based on feedback from others What a wonderful delightful experience, fantastic ambience, small and exceedingly welcoming, great service. The menu was interesting varied without being too large so plenty of choice to choose from,...a sensible wine list and as a red wine lover I chose one that was listed as recommended, so good I took a pic of the label and hope to be able to buy some for myself. The quality and presentation was first class, we had starter and main but didn’t have room for sweet, what we had was excellent. Parking is on the Main Street or any of the side streets, not easy on a Friday night so allow a little extra time to find a space. Very highly recommended and would revisit without doubt whenever visiting Cardiff again.More
