From the moment you step inside the glass doors into the intimately burnished wood colored setting of this upscale Italian Ristorante; prepare to be treated with superior service. With your reservation, a friendly face shall direct you to your seat faster than you can sing, “Papa Loves Mambo”. Their staff is consistently attentive, taking an intuitive aim in providing you with a memorable experience.
Speaking of experience, time spent dining at a white cotton-covered table here is just that.
If you close your eyes and breathe in the aroma of tomato, thyme, and parmesan; you can almost transcend yourself to the rolling hills of Italy’s countryside. Prepare to be rimasta colpita, or as the Italians say, “impressed!”
To start, Volare exhibits an elaborate collection of wines ranging from Rosenblum’s Kathy’s Cuvee, to Cusumano Nero D’Avola.
For a stimulating culinary encounter, consider the Cappesante: seared u-8 sea scallops delicately placed over a light English pea puree, truffle oil, and crowned with crispy prosciutto. – Or the Capellini con Pollo: grilled chicken, roasted roma, and spinach gently tossed with homemade capellini pasta with basil and crumbled feta cheese. The Pollo fra Diavolo gives a good kick with its spicy tomato sauce and for those who prefer a more delicate flavor, the Melon and Prosciutto and the Risotto con Gambero each have a light taste.
All food is made fresh daily in-house: Executive Chef Joshua Moore incorporates into his dishes organic produce grown from his 10 – acre farm. Your senses will detect this organic goodness in the Cucumber Soup comprising crisp cucumbers, sweet onion, garlic, buttermilk, vegetable stock, sour cream, fresh basil, thyme, and Italian parsley.
Top the evening off with the artistic presentation of the Crème Brûlée Di Giorno or become wooed by the palatably luscious Tartufo.
With presentations like these, it is no wonder that Volare is currently celebrating their 7th year anniversary, which is celebrated with a red, white, and green fabric artfully placed above the bar and the proud displaying of the Italian flag. For additional festivities, Volare is offering a variety of $7 specials for 7 weeks –running August 7th through September 24th.
Whether you are a singleton or graced with the company of friends, Volare Italian Ristorante is a fine dining affair you will remember: attentive service, an engaging culinary encounter, and a warm atmosphere where everyone should feel welcome.
