We had a few meals at the restaurant while staying at the Sharnbrook hotel, they have a good Italian menu at reasonable prices, the place settings are elegant and the service is great. Celebrated my 30th wedding anniversary with a great Italian meal here.

Went with a friend for lunch here yesterday, asked for lunch menu and after the waitress had a bit of a root through the desk we were presented with a sandwich menu. We decided to order from the main menu but we were given different menus, waitress took them both away to find out which was the correct one. Customer... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my meal the the vesuvio restaurant. Starter and main were both excellent and really enjoyed. Service was great throughout but not invasive as it can sometimes be now. Would recommend.

Good service and good food. Have visited a few times now for romantic meals as well as family meals and so far have never been disappointed. Food is delicious and certainly authentic home cooked style italian food. Portions are filling. Service is professional, friendly and attentive. Will continue to visit when passing.

My wife and I popped in without a reservation for a mid week evening meal. I've been a few times to this Italian restaurant and always found the service and food to be of a good reliable standard. This visit was no different and I opted for the sea bass and was very glad I did. I like sea bass... More

Had thought of eating here a number of times and a family occasion finally provided the opportunity. It is definately one I will not repeat. Good service for a large group but the food was not good either in taste or value. A bland sunday roast and veg followed by even blander profiteroles.

Sunday lunch, with all the family, reasonable food, good venue for several people. Would not say that its a romantic venue but for a group its just perfect. So a birthday or celebration its just right.
