“Napoli 6 : Maidstone 0”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 November 2012

What an asset to the town. We were recommended the Vesuvius by friends and in spite of it's rather uneasy to reach position we did not regret coming here. The meal was absolutely fabulous and the attendance of the young owners to our needs was excellent. Though the menu could be slightly expanded to have on UK dishes the choice of original Italian food was more than acceptable and the offering of the Limoncello after the meal was welcome. We shall be back, no doubt

“A taste of Italian neopolitan dining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2012

Although the decor is fairly bland the restaurant has a good choice of italian dishes that reminded us of our holidays in Sorrento. The staff are attentive, courteous and friendly. The food is delicious and it appears freshly prepared. We love the fish dishes. We have now been three times and prefer it to the italian chain restaurants.

“Authentic and delicious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2012

I was so excited when I discovered someone had opened a proper Italian restaurant in Maidstone. Maidstone is saturated with your bog standard chain restaurants, but here is one fantastic exception to that. Delicious food, a lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff. I have already been 3 times since it opened and I'm sure there will be many more occasions!
