Description: If you have never visited Volare then a delightful surprise awaits you. Situated above shops in Woodthorpe Road, Ashford, it doesn't shout at you: the entrance doorway is nestled between two shop-fronts and can easily be missed; but like all hidden treasures, once discovered, you will want to visit again and so the location will implant itself in your memory.The atmosphere is relaxed and charming, with a real Italian 'family' feel: so many of our customers have become friends.Much of what we present is traditional, but we like to experiment with new ideas and taste combinations. Everything is cooked freshly to order. Nothing is rushed and the restaurant staff are always attentive and will pamper you until your food is ready to bring to the table. As they say - the best things are always worth waiting for.The wine list is extensive and the staff are very knowledgeable and happy to suggest a wine that will compliment your meal - within your specified budget.We cater for all types of party - from intimate dinners to celebrations up to 40 diners.Superb food, fine wines, a fun and relaxing ambience, all served with a dash of Italian style and friendship. What more could you want from a restaurant?

“A hidden gem.”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

The food is fantastic and very reasonably priced and they have an excellent wine list. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and have created a wonderful atmosphere. I would happily eat here every week and recommend it to anyone wanting a little taste of Italy.

“Lovely restaurant, lovely people and great food”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

As others have said, you might easily walk past the front door without knowing. But once you have spotted it and had a meal there, you will be back, like we have, many times.
The welcome is friendly, the food is delicious and the set menu offers an excellent variety at a very reasonable price.
I think it is the best restaurant in the area.
