The chef is a master. Pizza as it was intended. Thin powdery crust, beautiful passata, well balanced acidity, good cheeses and if you ask nicely they'll add zuccini for £1. Spectacular!

First time here. Very good real Italian food. Lovely owners and busy for the middle of the summer hols on an early Thursday evening. Be careful, the spicy pasta is for hardened chilli aficionados only.

There's a small pay-and-display car park just 2-3 minutes walk from Il Vesuvio. It's called Stone Street car park, with the entrance on Camden Road.
