A group of ten of us spent an evening at the restaurant. While they were well able to cater to us, the food, wine and ambience were just decent, it wasn't as good as it had been on a previous visit. The location is good and the staff were friendly enough.

Had a meal with my family here. The restaurant wasn't a bit child friendly. We had to buy an adults portion of pizza (11 inch )for our 7 year old. I did ask for a small child's size but was told they couldn't facility me. I wasn't made aware of any other children's options available. To be honest I wouldn't... More

Have eaten here plenty of times but decided one Saturday to order a takeaway. I ordered the prawns and to my disappointment half of the prawns were not de-vained ! By the time I had all the vains removed myself everyone else was eating and the food was cold . Was very disappointed because I'm usually happy with their food

Myself and my wife had a wonderful meal here. The staff were lovely. The food was simply delicious. My wife had a linguine and i had a calzone. Great food, nice staff, good presentation, and very reasonable prices. We would go there again.

We arrived in Westport late on Thursday night so when we rang different eateries at 9pm , none of them would allow a reservation as they had finished serving. Our receptionist informed us our only options were Il Vulcano or a Chinese restaurant. From the outside of the restaurant we could not make up our mind whether to dine inside... More

We booked earlier in the day, but were seated at a table next to the entrance. Each time the door opened we got a blast of cold, damp air. I asked to be seated somewhere else, but I was told that it was not possible. At a glance, I could see at least one vacant table for 2, but it... More

Due to a spur of the moment valentine's vacation, we were at a loss with somewhere to dine as most if not all places were fully booked. Found this little gem who were willing to accommodate on short notice with delightful and generously portioned dishes. Will be visiting again when in Westport.
