Wine i ordered was not served and the server told me that the wine he was serving me when questioned was "loved by everybody" complete lie for a house wine. The fungi crostini is nothing more than melted cheese on sliced baguette! The Hawaiian pizza is good but the Risotto is really a paella. Very poor, disappointed and a cheap... More

Out for family dinner, great menu, flexible for kids with half portions. Waiter very friendly and helpful Good selection wine. Steak with pepper sauce and onions cooked to my request of med-rare was perfect. We'll be back.

We ate here on Sat 3rd Dec, and while the staff were accommodating in seating us (two adults and two children) without a reservation, I have to say we ended up very disappointed. We love pizza in general, and two of us ordered pizza, but ended up leaving half behind. The base was completely tasteless apart from the slight burnt... More

30 Nordic Walkers dined here on a Wednesday night. The staff was very efficient and good fun. We had a great night with good food and wine. The set menu was a bit pricey, €30 for 4 courses. I ordered from the main menu which was better priced.

I honestly did not imagine there was such good value with excellent quality food anywhere in Ireland. I am referring to the early bird menu at Il Vulcano, Westport. €20 includes 3 courses, a glass of wine and tea or coffee. Great variety on the menu. We had their homemade ministrone soup for starters which was a meal in itself.... More

Awesome quick service (was willing to substitute things on menu). Authentic Italian food. We had pasta, soup, salad, and garlic bread. Loved it all. Good wine as well. Fairly priced as well. Can't go wrong here!

We went here for pizza and ended up returning another evening for more pizza. Super thin crust and blazing hot out of the pizza oven. All sorts of delicious combinations.

The atmosphere here is cozy, with nice furnishings and lots of candlelight. I had a glass of the house red and the margherita pizza, which were both very good. And, the homemade Italian bread was heaven! The price was extremely reasonable. Service was polite and friendly, but a bit slow. I had to flag down the waiter for the bill,... More
