This place is great. Fun atmosphere, good food - my most favorite dish by them is the spinach gnocci in gorgonzola sauce. TO DIE FOR. the veal is very good also.

mmm!

Wanted to try a new Italian restaurant (typically dine at Trattoria Contadina) while in town. Walked all around North Beach perusing menus and chose Trattoria Volare because of the cauliflower soup with white truffle oil that was posted

Of all the places in Little Italy this restaurant looks a little cheesy with it's neon sign, but the food here is wonderful and better than most. It is fairly reasonable and the potato gnocchi is the best I have had in Little Italy. There

Pros: best gnocchi in the city

Cons: no cons

We had no clue where to eat in Little Italy, so we parked and we walked. There was a woman standing outside of Volare giving out free Bruschetta Appetizers, so we took one. The woman was quite pushy about us coming in for dinner (in a nice

I agree wholeheartedly with the other Scotsman who was discriminated against because of his accent.\r
Our waiter gave us lousy service but had the cheek to add on a 17% tip to my bill. When the bill arrived I questioned him about that

This would be a nice place if it wasn´t for the rude owner. Some previous review said he sings at the costumers sometimes... No. He raises the volume of the CD player until it`s heard in Los Angeles and then he "sings" along... When

With too many choices in N. Beach, we flipped a coin and then gave Volare a try. Our experience was somewhat disappointing. One of our dishes (spinach raviloli) was really not that appetizing. And the restaurant itself was actually

Just ate there again last night - the gnoche was heaven, the ambience was Italy, everything was incredible, as usual. I've been coming here for 5 years, and I grew up in New York. It's always great. And those olives! And very affordable.

Everything about "Trattoria Volare" is memorable. The Gnocchi (made from scratch) with pesto sauce is the best. The atmosphere will make you fell like you've found the best Italian Caffe in the world. Make a trip to the north shore to

I came on a Saturday night and had to wait 45 minutes for a table, but it was well worth it! Great food, attentive service, and the owner himself serenaded our table. I would reccommend Volare to anyone!
