Restaurant Review: Volare

Published on June 20, 2009

I sent an IM to Boyet on a Friday afternoon telling him that I wanted to have a food trip. He asked me if I was still craving for Chinese food and I gave him a big NO! I could sense his relief when I said no because he is definitely getting tired of Chinese food. He asked me if I already have something in mind so I told him that I want pizza.

After finishing my antibiotics for tonsillitis, I am still taking medicines for ulcer and iron supplement for my anemia. I am thinking that the iron supplement is giving my stomach the power of a bottomless barrel. I easily get hungry even after just finishing my last meal. So I was up for the challenge of a food trip.

We passed by a few ads for Yellow Cab and Brooklyn Pizza but I have already tried both. Our last option was Volare. It was 2 p.m. when we got there so we were their only customer. The menu says that their pastas and 12-inch pizzas are good for 2-3 persons already. I usually don’t believe restaurants when they say these stuff especially when I am eating with either Boyet or my family.

Boyet chose their Spaghetti Volare. He tried it ahead of me and pointed out that it was a little sour. A lot of people, including Boyet, are used to the Filipino-style spaghetti which is usually sweet. But I love the sourness of tomato in my spaghetti. The spaghetti is moist and well-seasoned. It comes with big chunks of beef and mushrooms that have both brought distinct flavors. There are also pieces of sausages and carrots that added color to the dish.

I opted for the Fantasia Pizza. It has tomato sauce, cheese, mushroom, bacon and egg. Yes, egg in pizza! It was my first time to try such that was why I chose it out of curiosity. We mutually agreed that the pizza was so good! The thin crust gave way to all the flavors of the toppings.

The pizza was well-presented with the egg yolk and parmesan cheese in the middle.


I highly recommend this place. The well-lighted exterior and pleasing staff members are plus points to the good food they offer. They also offer Volare Gelato but I was so full to try it. They are definitely telling the truth when they say that they offer huge servings. :)
