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.

Was in westport for hill walking weekend. We ate here the first nite. I thought the food was just gorgeous I had a starter of the specials menu then I had a seafood risotto and this was probably the tastiest dish I have had in 2014 anywhere!! So well done to whoever created it.

The food is great whether you eat in or take out. The price is good either way. Try the crostini Al fungi for starter and penne pasta with broccoli and chicken. It will sort you back less that €20pp and that includes a glass of Pinot!. Great for a group or just two 😀
