“Great Pizza and Balcony Seating”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

My husband and I were craving something spicy and figured pizza was it! We proceeded up the stairs to dine on the balcony as it was a perfect balmy evening. We were greeted in a friendly, welcoming manner by everyone. We ordered the ham and mushroom pizza, a green salad and half carafe of wine. Our French is poor and the waiter was very helpful. Service was efficient and the food was delicious. They also served spicy oil with the pizza, which we enjoyed. The prices are reasonable and it was a great experience. Someone at the next table was eating pasta and it looked delicious as well.

“Maybe the pizza would be better”
Reviewed 25 July 2012

We had fish and steak that were poorly prepared and disappointing. The wait-guys were casual and disorganized (brought us someone else's food, forgot the bread, etc.). However, the balcony seating is popular and overlooks the main boulevard. The flashing neon lights are a bit annoying.

“5 star pizzas”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

If you like good pizza cooked in an authentic wood fired pizza oven, then you will like the Vesuve - the seafood pizza @ 8 euros was wonderful. Great staff, nice atmosphere with plenty of locals dining, we really liked the Vesuve.
