Just realizing, it's already 18 months that I am away from FC to the north...

Anyway, when I lived nearly around the corner, the main reason to eat in Volare was: it's longer open than most of the other Italian owned restaurants.

The place was managed by Thai (confession: I like to look at her legs) and all the kitchen staff is Thai, not supervised by Italians.
Result: the food was not necessarily bad, but also nothing to talk about - missing the Italian "kick" and more Thai-Italian fusion food.

For someone starving for real Italian food, there are better places, eg. La Taverna del Passatore.

Prices were IMO already at that time too high for the quality. If they even increased those prices, the convenience of a late Italian dinner doesn't rectify that.

It was my understand the very attractive Thai owner has an Italian husband.

Not sure if it is her husband but definitely has a bf. She's attractive but nothing special, I would give her one though.

Giving her a new menu would be more beneficial.  <_<

I heard that also -alas, I never experienced him in any active part there.
So, it's managed by Thai and kitchen by Thai.

It happens to be a guesthouse as well, I'm wondering if the rooms upstairs have had the same treatment?

Eat there four times on my last visit

food was generally very good

Clean kitchens and pleasant staff

the man running the show told me he was from Germany and was very helpful.

Both the Farang and Thai food was of good standard

though prices a bit high

nice touch was the fish tank under the glass floor

If that is before refurb then can't imagine what it looks like after. It already looks pretty good for the price.
