Brilliant food, excellent service, just a lovely place for a relaxing meal. Vesuvio is our regular treat each week, there is plenty on the menu to choose from (with the addition of a Specials board) so we never have a problem choosing something delicious. Our...new "favourite" is the Pasta Rustico (sausage, bacon, peppers, onion and salami in a cream & tomato sauce), so tasty and delicious - although the Spaghetti Bolognese runs it a close second. The young staff are always friendly, polite and attentive.More

Trying to decide where to take a guest we couldn't believe that we had never taken her to Vesuvio - our favourite restaurant where many diners are Italian (always a good sign!) Once we realised, it was a no brainer. Having been before, I was...confident we would have a good meal - but my expectations were surpassed. SO nice to be' out out' after lockdown, but even better when the food is of such good quality. Great food, great service - it NEVER disappoints ( I think I have posted this before but it is TRUE!). Already looking forward to my next visit!More

We visited Vesuvio on a Saturday night and enjoyed a lovely meal. The good points: - The food arrived quickly, was very hot and was served in large portions. There was a huge selection on the menu. - The tiramisu was devine. - The prices...are really reasonable - I'd go as far as to say cheap for what you get. - Maria was lovely. The reasons I've knocked off one star: - We found most of the young staff to be a little unfriendly and not particularly well trained in waiting tables. They were perfectly pleasant, but they did the bare minimum and made a few mistakes which didn't make us want to leave a tip for good service (we did anyway, this time). - The pizza didn't wow me (pizza is my absolute favourite food, and I had a much better one from a pub recently). - It was very loud in the restaurant, so much so that we couldn't hear each other speaking at times. A lot of that was due to the amount of people and children making noise, which I appreciate is not the restaurant's fault - but when fairly loud music was added too, it was a few notches too high. I would return to Vesuvio to try more of their menu as there was so much on there, but if we experienced the same service I wouldn't leave a tip again.More

Welcome back Vesuvio. We've waited a long time to "dine-in" as opposed to having great deliveries - and it was well worth the wait! Delicious hot, tasty food (up to your usual high standard), massive portions, excellent service. We really enjoyed our evening with you,...thank you.More
