As before our meal was great. Lots of choice. On the menu, with good service from friendly staff. Would recommend Volare for their fish stew.

Visited with group of friends. Service not too good and some of the chosen dishes not at all as expected. Soups v good and pizza reasonably authentic. Reasonable price for lunch, £10 including hot drink.
