I've driven past this ristorante several times meaning to try it out. Today I had the opportunity to do so. So I took my better half for what I hoped would be a pleasant lunch. We were not disappointed. The ristorante has steps leading up...to it but that's a small negative. The greeting was warm and friendly as they took our coats before seating us at a comfortable table. The menu was typically Italian but with a couple of twists such as the extra large pasta and the mouth watering options on the "specials" board. I chose the mushroom starter with crostini while my wife chose bruscetta. You can always tell a decent mushroom crostini with the variety of different types of mushroom. My wife then ordered the spaghetti with salmon while I had the large pasta with spicy beef in Ragu sauce. No room left for desserts. At a cost of under £50 it was a damned sight cheaper than other local Italian restaurants, a better quality of staff, service and quality. Definitely one to try again.More

Feeling on a typical Sunday sitting in an Italian restaurant, outside your country, is priceless. And after 7 years of England i felt at home again, eating the classic food that melt your heart. The food brought me back to southern Italy, from buffalo mozzarella...to cod to all pasta courses. We couldn't have gotten more satisfied of a meal. On behalf of all the seated diners, THANK YOU GUYS! We will meet again soon.More

Been wanting to try Vesuvio for years and we finally did. It didn't disappoint! Both of our starters and mains were delicious. The bottle of prosecco was also one of the best i'd tasted. Service was good, it was very busy on the Friday night...& a good atmosphere. Looking forward to coming back again.More

We have just visited celebrated our daughters birthday here. It’s been a while since we have visited. The food was traditional Italian and was excellent. The staff sang to our daughter for her birthday, they made her birthday meal so special. Service was excellent, my...daughter misplaced her phone and the gentleman In charge did everything he could to help her find it. It was a lovely experience and we will be returning again very soon. 💕More

BEST ITALIAN EVER!!!! I’ve been going to Vesuvios for over 10 years now, but never left a review. (I know, my bad) This place is by far the best Italian restaurant in the whole of Manchester. From the greeting on entrance, to the goodbyes! 10/10...all round. Ive more or less had everything on the menu and never ever have I been disappointed! For the meat lovers, it’s gotta be the mixed grill, or the tomahawk when on the specials menu, for the pasta lovers it’s gotta be the pasta ragu! Amazing every time!!!!! The staff go way, way, way above and beyond for you and are extremely friendly and good fun. They’re a family run business and you can tell from the good vibes that you get as soon as you go in! Me and the wife have been to so many Italian restaurants in and around Manchester and they don’t even come close. You’ve got to visit here and taste real authentic Italian food!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️More
