We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident and it's an unassuming place from the outside but the food was excellent .

Stumbled upon Il Vulcano when other restaurants required reservations - pizza, italian dishes, all were good. Limited beer selection (Peroni), but lots of wines. Slow service, but very nice waitstaff made it ok on a rainy evening.

I don't particularly like pasta but I eat here regularly. The food here is the main attraction , there are great seafood options if you like your fish with a little kick to it. The seafood medley in tinfoil wrap is great if you are a fish lover. I usually stick to the fish but have enjoyed their pizzas also... More

A superb meal and wine. Service was excellent. The waiters were very helpful and did not pressure you at all during the meal. Finished with a brandy. Will I return?...absolutely!
