I have sampled all the main restaurants in Westport town - and this is most definitely the best. An Port Mor was good too - but Il Vulcano walks away with the trophy. Why? Because everything was just so damn good! The service, the price, the ambience, the wine (only Italian) - and above all, the sheer quality of the... More

Very accommodating as we were a large group including kids. Food was great and staff pleasant though there was mix up with our order but this was due to the fact that it was our waitress' first night so no fault could be laid there.

Best pasta meal I've ever had! Expectations were not high, we had tried to go to another Italian in town but were directed here, pleasantly surprised didn't cover it, the service was good but the food was fantastic, really tasted homemade and the flavours were amazing

My wife and I had dinner here and we have no complaints whatsoever. The specials are the best bet for value: I had the Penne Carbonara and my wife had the Chicken special and both were very good. The Barbera wine was excellent, as was the after-dinner espresso. The banter in the kitchen was mostly in Italian, so the cooking... More

I got a takeaway pizza from here. This was one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Tasty thin base with fresh toppings at a great price. I now eat here regularly and highly recommend it.

Wait staff a bit disorganized, but trying to do a good job. Slow service. We ordered a pizza and it was good, served hot and as we requested. A good Italian choice.

I visited Il Vulcano last night with my family and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The food was delicious, particularly the fresh Clew Bay mussels. The service was very good, despite the fact that it was very busy. I would definitely come back again.

Four of us had dinner in this restaurant recently. One of the party is coeliac and asked for carbonara with gluten free pasta (carbonara was not on the dinner menu) but the kitchen delivered perfectly cooked pasta and deliciious carbonara. We also had minestrone soup which was also delicious and two of the party had Italian tomato soup, gluten free... More

We eat here on a regular basis so I may have written on this one before. The food here is excellent but it helps if you are hungry. The portions are generous so leave some extra time to digest. The staff are really nice and the menu choices are plenty. If there i any flaw here I would say its... More
