Commerce Township, officially the Charter Township of Commerce, is a charter township of Oakland County, and suburb of Detroit, located in the U.S. state of Michigan. The population was 40,186 at the 2010 census. The terrain is rolling hills with large expanses of flat farmland and suburban development. The Huron River runs mostly north-south through the township. Commerce was formerly a weekend and summer resort for Detroiters because of the area's small inland lakes and peaceful seclusion, but due to recent development the cottages are now all permanent homes. There has been a sharp increase in population in the last few years, mostly on or near the several lakes and golf courses. Much of Proud Lake State Recreation Area is within the township. The northern terminus of M-5 is in Commerce. The busy highway would have continued north to Interstate 75, but because of the area's high property value and the many lakes that dot the landscape such a project would have been far too costly.

Award-winning chef/owner Dino Grossi and his family opened Volare Ristorante in the Fall of 2004. Located in the heart of the new downtown Wixom city center, this restaurant features a dramatic interior rich in texture and color. The philosophy is simple: use the best ingredients as simply as possible and serve them with joy and passion. As a Tuscan cooks in Chianti, as a Neapolitan cooks on the Amalfi coast, as a Sicilian cooks in Palermo, at Volare we cook as an Italian might, in the truest sense. We import pasta, Parmigiano Reggiano, balsamic vinegar, sea salt and Prosciutto San Daniele because they are so distinct and virtually indispensable to the creation of a great Italian meal. We fervently believe in the inherent quality, freshness and greatness of our regions' ingredients, purchased from predominantly organic, farmers and friends. Our cheeses come from all over Italy. Our wine list is predominantly Italian, in celebration of the quality and diversity of Italian grape varietals and vinification. Volare Ristorante offers a memorable dining experience of impeccable Italian cuisine, and we have assembled a passionate team that possesses a combination of talent and experience. Volare is our interpretation of the best we have come to know in the Italian culture of family where it is best and most often celebrated, at the dinner table.
I, personally didn't care for Volare's. Their menu was quite limited for an Italian restaurant and portion sizes were small for what they charged. Just not my cup of tea,

There is nothing better than a fabulous earthy restaurant close to home. I had heard about their interesting brunch menu...So many choices...each really unique and full of fresh ingredients. I was seated near the door and wasn't thrilled with that. However, service was excellent- the restaurant is beautifully designed and I can't wait to return with friends.

We stopped here after our meetings based on the reviews we read. The place is nicely, uniquely decorated. Cozy booths and tables available for sitting. We were seated right away. The food was very good. I have Chicken salad and the chicken pot pie soup. Both were very good. My co-worker has the Scottish salmon and he thought it was very good. I also tried the vanilla vodka and cranberry drink, it was nice and refreshing. If we are in the area again, I would eat here again.

Stopped in before football game at Wlc. Great choices of drinks and foods. Smoked items are top shelf. Wish it was a little less cost. But is fair

They have good food and a lot of it! I ordered a salad and it was one the best I've had. Their BBQ items are flavorful and there are different sauces to choose from. In nice weather you can sit outside. Very friendly service and attention.

Really liked being on the water and having dinner. Food was really good but would say it’s about 25% over priced.

I had breakfast there early this morning. It was my first visit. I was pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is very trendy with a 10 foot glass enclosed gas fireplace and all sorts of tables and benches in various configurations. There is also a deli counter in back for carry out.
My server was Luis and he was excellent. I had the Hamtramck eggs Benedict with homemade sausage on a sourdough roll that was toasted. You could not improve upon it. The presentation value was five-star.
The room was light and airy with plenty of sunlight streaming through the windows. I thought the food was reasonably priced for the value and coupled with the excellent service, I would definitely give toasted oak five star rating and will return. My compliments to the staff!
