great find

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 on the specials chalkboard and the charming doorman. Although the decor is a bit ""cheesy"", the ambience is fun with all the Italian being spoken by the restaurant staff. The wait... view more

best gnocchi

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 are two gnocchi dishes on the menu. I recommend getting the potato gnocchi with the gorgonzola cream sauce (on the menu that sauce is paired with the spinach gnocchi). My wife and I... view more

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 way of course) and we thought what the heck. It wasn't busy like other restaurants that we saw in the area, so we worried about the quality of the food. But let me tell you, this p... view more

Avoid like the plague

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 practice and he said it was ""company policy"". There were 2 American guests sitting at a table next to us. I asked the waiter if he would treat them in the same way. He again said it

The Owner should be fired!!!

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 he`s not singing, he`s yelling at the employees. That made me and other costumers feel very uncomfortable.\r
The food is very good (he doesn`t cook, although he pretends to), but over

Better places for food in N. Beach

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 pretty cold. This seems like a great place for families or large parties over ten, but a romantic dining destination it is not.

Always a great experience!

We found it by mistake, and keep coming back. The food is always great, the service excellent, and the value can't be beat. We've eaten at many places around North Beach, but this is the only one we consistently bring company to. Love the olives and the half carafe.

How do you say ""crap"" in Italian?

I was on my first trip to San Francisco a few weeks ago, and because my boyfriend and I are lovers of Italian food, we decided to go to North Beach for dinner. We chose Volare based on its charming decor, and an employee outside who persuaded us to give them a try. Boy, am I sorry we did. We both ordered soda (over $2 for a can, no refills), both of which were expired and flat. They replaced the bad soda with other, ... view more
