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.

Vulcano is one of our favorite restaurants in Rockville Centre. The pizza is so fresh and very Neapolitan. It's the closest thing to real Italian pizza that I have tried outside of Italy! I would highly suggest this place to anyone who wants a really tasty pizza - and their apps are to die for as well. Tons of flavor.

What a hidden gem Vulcano 081 is. From start to finish, we all had a wonderful experience. Adrian, our server was attentive and told us all about the history of the family and the restaurant. Even went so far as to ask my parents where in Italy there were from because he found it so fascinating that each region in Italy spoke different dialects.
The food was presented in such a clean, simple manner. Everything we had was delicious and we cannot wait to go back again.

While the pizza is outstanding, so is everything else — from the eggplant parm, to the salmon, to the paninis. Just great food.

The brick oven pizza was fab until the middle. It was soggy and droopy in the middle and wasn’t even a complex pie. Simple cheese.

Vulcano 081 was recommended by a friend of a family member. My parents and I couldn't be happier that we tried it! The food is fresh and delicious, the servers are attentive without being overbearing, and the manager, Adrian, is always welcoming and accommodating. The pizza is a must-try (pick any of their many options) as either a starter or a meal, and if you have room afterwards, order the S'mores Calzone or the chocolate mousse!

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.

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.
