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

Surprisingly good. Chef spent time in Italy. I know because I asked. Pretty authentic. Minestrone Soup very good. We had the Ravioli it was good pasta and the sauce was tasty. Good Service. A lot of people were for the pizzas. I noticed the carbonara, it looked like they were trying to appease the crowd who likes it creamy, smothered,... More

We spent some considerable time wandering around Westport on a Monday evening looking for somewhere decent to eat dinner. Some places were closed, we came back to Il Vulcano after seeing it was empty which is always a bad sign. However, we took a chance, sat down. Service was particularly good throughout, we skipped starters but both went for pizzas... More

Recommended by an Irish girl from Ballina we landed into il volcano after 9pm on a Tuesday evening. I wasn't expecting to have to think Italian after stumbling out of Matt Molloy's just down the road. Quite a culture change! My brain took a few minutes to catch up. We all had a lovely meal of pasta and pizza. Recommended.

It was just after 10pm when we find out everyone stopps serving food at 10! After being turned down at every establishment we walk into Il vulcano. There in one other table od diners finishing up and we were sure we'd get another turn down but they welcomed us with such warmth and grace! I'm a New Yorker and we... More
