People of Bounds Grove rejoice! Thanks to Volare you’ve got a truly authentic Neapolitan pizzeria and Italian restaurant in your midst. Founded by two sisters that regularly visit Italy to personally select the best ingredients, Volare is an authentic and pleasant place to eat, but also a fantastic spot for some casual drinks come the later part of the evening. Located on Bowes Road not far from either Bounds Green, Palmers Green, and Arnos Grove stations, this little slice of Italian culinary culture is set to become a north London neighbourhood favourite.
The centrepiece of Volare’s Bowes Road restaurant is the traditional, wood-fired oven that talented head chef and David and his team of pizzaioli use to turn out perfect Neapolitan pizza made using daily-made dough that’s spun out with all the theatre appropriate to an eatery that might as well be on the streets of Naples rather that Bounds Green in London. All the classic bases are covered, so to speak – margherita, marinara, Napoletana – with house signatures like the huge meat or vegetarian Vesuvio that you’re going to need company to finish off.
Besides being a beloved Bounds Green pizzeria first and foremost, Volare also create a good amount of straight up Italian restaurant fare, with fantastic salads and homemade pasta dishes making an appearance on the menu. The restaurant itself is inviting in terms of decor and makes for a warming place to sit up with a glass of beer or wine. Expect neutral tones, exposed beams and some interesting Italian-style rockery. A little gem of London, this is.
Fabulous. Thin and crispy pizzas with quality toppings are huge and delicious. Great calamari and meatballs. Food is big in flavour and great value. Friendly welcoming restaurant. Definitely recommend.
Had a great family lunch, everthingvwe ate was excellent including the pizza, pasta and meatballs and an excellent tiramisu. Lovely service from a charming waitress
The pizza was very good! We had a nice lunch with family. The location is not the best but is worth going to enjoy the pizza!
