Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a lovely meal here the day after Valentine’s Day! Wow, what a special menu! I had the stuffed pepper for a special starter and it was delicious. The sauces are all different and tasty. Great kitchen staff and front of the house always...excels and go above and beyond in their duty of care. We have been coming here for years and Maria and her husband never disappoint. We’ve had large groups of family and sometimes just the two of us and it always runs with flawless ease. It’s spotlessly clean, warm, and Maria and her staff bend over backward in their service. Thank you, it means a lot.More

Can’t fault.the food or the wonderful young staff but the female owner is rude and obnoxious. When she finally admitted that she made a mistake, the words “I’m sorry” were still too much for her to stomach. Such a shame as the chef is obviously...very talented and the young people who serve obviously brilliant. She brings the whole business down.More

We had a night to remember at Vesuvios last night. They held a cabernet night with a singer Dave McClennand. He was great, it's a small restaurant but that made it even better. He got the audience involved enthusiasticically. Much fun was had. As usual...the food and service was excellent, quantity more than adequate, quality excellent as usual. A splendid night with good company and fantastic value for money.More

Having booked to go to the nearby Escape Room we were unsure if we would find anywhere in Whittlesey that would be able to accomodate our daughter being Gluten Free, we were plesently surprised to find this resturant, she had the option of both pasta...an pizza on the kids menu that was GF.

Everything about the evening - which was an important family get together - went well. Easy to reserve a table over the phone. On arrival we had a lovely welcome and all the staff were pleasant and skilled. The menu was varied, it was very...fairly priced, the food came quickly, portions were a good size, and the food was excellent. Finished with dessert and one of the best coffees I have had in a long time. Was a clean pleasant environment, the background music was quiet and added to the evening, and we were never rushed.
