We’ve had such an exciting first month and almost a half in Louisville,  that we are just now catching up to relay the news that Jonathan Tarullo has been named a managing partner and is assuming an ownership stake in Volare Italian Ristorante at 2300 Frankfort Ave — just eighteen months after assuming the role of General Manager.

According to a press release sent out January 29, Louisville native Tarullo started his culinary journey washing dishes when he was 15-years-old and has been at the forefront of some of Louisville’s most desirable restaurants.  He’ll now join executive chef and managing partner Joshua Moore with an equal stake in the restaurant.  Both Tarullo and Moore have worked diligently to develop an unparalleled team both in the front and back of house, all with one goal, deliver a first-class dining experience.  “Tarullo has been a tremendous asset to the restaurant since joining in 2016,” stated Paul Perconti, one of Volare’s owners.  “This was a natural evolution to afford Jonathan an opportunity to become a partner.”

 Moore and Tarullo, are both excited about the future of Volare and the recent changes.  Tarullo will continue to focus on the overall guest experience, while also growing their event coordination offerings.  Moore remains focused on the dining experience, as he continues to finesse an ever changing menu focused on the freshest seasonal ingredients.
