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.

We were a party of 12 people and were comfortable seating in a corner of the restaurant, even though we were a large group the efficiency and the cadence of the service was really good: drinks, appetizers, main entrees, dessert I ordered the duck and it was quite tasty however for my opinion it was such a large portion.

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

Everything about the experience of this place is top notch. The decor and ambiance is upscale but still casual. The food is unbelievably delicious. The chef seasonally pulls produce from his own farm, the fish is flown in almost daily, the angus beef is melt in your mouth and everything on the menu seems to be prepared with a care... More

Came here with my husband. We have been to numerous places here in town, trying to find "our place". Good service is starting to become a thing of the past, or so it seems. We came here, looking for a place for us to enjoy for several years to come. The service was great and we talked to the manager... More

The food is the star here: traditional pasta, veal scallopini, fresh fish - but the comfortable yet up-scale ambiance and excellent service will make you want to return as well. My only complaint would be not having fresh cannoli (their cannoli is clearly pre-made elsewhere, and you miss the crisp shell and light cool marscapone filling).

We are visiting and was lucky to find Volare for dinner. Highly recommend. Fresh everything out of the Chef's garden. Joshua Moore the Executive Chef visited our table and made us so welcome.

We visited Volare earlier this week - there were 8 in our party. To a person, everyone loved their meal. I had the filet and it was amazing. Josh Moore is an extremely talented chef!!! We will visit there again - very, very soon.
