Pizzeria
In 1889, during a visit to Naples, a pizza with tomatoes, mozzarella and basil was created to honor Queen Margherita. The pizza’s ingredients matched the colors of the Italian flag. We use authentic dough and only the freshest ingredients to make our pizza. We bake the pizza for approximately 90 seconds at 1,000 degrees. Pizza Napoletano has several distinctive characteristics. Pizza in Napoli is soft and can be folded. It is considered “wet” by American standards. For this reason, people in Napoli generally eat their pizza with a knife and fork. Blackened charred spots on the pizza crust are a tell-tale sign of pizza Napoletano that has been cooked in q blistering hot, wood burning oven. Each pizza is an individual work of art.

The bar was perfect, the pizza was as close to the pizza we eat in Naples as your ever going to get. The grilled octopus was tender and cooked to perfection. The wait staff were friendly and attentive. We loved it and will definitely be back.

Great service. Great for glass of wine with flavorful personal pizzas. Entrees were also very good. Noise level a touch on the high side, but made for a festive, upbeat atmosphere.

This was my first time here, and honestly it was due to other places having been booked due to Restaurant Week in RVC. Friends recommended Vulcano and it was worth it. Pam, our server, was very friendly and chatted with us. The RVC pizza was amazing, but the salad that I ordered came with candied pistachios that weren’t that yummy. They were mushy instead of crunchy. That’s the only negative I can think of. My friends also enjoyed their meals and the various drinks that we ordered with our food were also good.

Very attentive service with sensational fresh ingredients pizza. Our second time there and it was just as good as the first. We were even greeted by our original server. This not some 'pizza joint', but a wonderful dining experience without pretentiousness for the whole family. We shall return...more often.

The staff remembered me from my prior visit, which had resulted in a misunderstanding. They went out of their way to make me feel welcome. The food was delivered quickly and was outstanding, as usual. The burrata is uniquely prepared and always excellent. The pizza is the best in Rockville Centre.

Delicious, authentic Napolitano style pizza baked in their beautiful, super-hot brick oven. The ingredients are really fresh--prosciutto and other meats, buffalo mozzarella, greens, burrata, to name a few. they have a great variety of pizzas--red and white--salads and other entrees. Full bar. The servers are always friendly and attentive. Reasonably priced. It's my favorite place for pizza.

We originally made our reservation for Mother's Day Brunch, only to discover they were not serving brunch because it was Mother's Day when we arrived. I was disappointed, but the brick oven pizza did not disappoint. We had salads, pizzas and small plates and everything was delicious. My son had the ciopinno and the muscles & clams were fresh, fantastic and a very nice sized portion for a small plate, he was very happy! Our server was courteous but the service was slow at best. I think they may have been overbooked due to the holiday or perhaps not used to handling so many large parties at once, but we will definitely be back any time we are in the mood for a brick oven pizza!!!!

The pizza was good but the service was terrible. We were 4,after we each ordered our own pizza, the waiter attempted to get us to order more. We refused. When it was time for the bill, he did not come back to take our coupon knowing we had one since I asked as we sat down if we could use it. When I gave him the coupon it took him about 10 minutes to come back with a new bill which was wrong but because we were in a rush I didn’t say anything, it was 10% which should have been a little over $6 taken off the bill but it was less. We paid cash and asked for change, we needed back a substantial amount of money which took the waiter another 15 minutes. The restaurant was packed and his response was they didn’t have any cash and were looking for some. I don’t understand how a packed place didn’t have any money, I think the waiter just didn’t know how to add properly. We were in a rush and ended up late. We will not be returning.

We arrived on time but had to wait for table. Not so bad. We sat and a twofer that came after without a reservation was drinking and eating before the waiter came to say hi. We ordered drinks. I was the only mixed drink which was not great, then ordered a bunch of appetizers and small plates which were wonderful! Calamari & shrimp, meatballs with polenta, grilled octopus, rice balls (are amazing). When the small plates came we ordered a Brooklyn pizza and 2 sides of veggies. Nicely done. This is a small venue and we like the food. The waitstaff is knowledgeable of the menu and pleasant. We enjoy this place and I’d recommend it.

Enjoy

The waitstaff at the bar seemed overwhelmed -there were a few mistakes which were corrected but the staff was very apologetic and comped one of the dishes. All the food was absolutely delicious. Both times I've eaten there on either a Friday or Sat you were short staffed. Realize you're a success and hire more staff. As I said the food was delicious!

After a hard day, Vulcano 081 was just what we needed. We've been to Naples so we can vouch for the authenticity of this place. The pizzas are excellent as are the salads and octopus. The back room is cozy and relatively quiet. Despite it being a bit chaotic on a Saturday night, the staff more than made up for a delay in getting our food. We look forward to returning.
