Accommodating for Vegans!

Came for a friends birthday. Excellent food and friendly service. They were happy to suggest vegan options for me and I had plenty of choice. I even had a dessert! We are out-of-towners but would love to come back on our next visit

We booked for a party of 15 for my mother in law's birthday and was warmly welcomed by the owners. Most of us had starters which was all excellent and calamari was a big hit, I recommend the chilli prawn starter which was wonderful, main courses all came out at the same time for such a large party no complaints...

Small and friendly. We went with some friends on a recommendation, who were also Italian. The entertainment previously booked was cancelled which was to our benefit as we managed to get a table for 4 at short notice. The menu was quite different, peas and bacon apparently, a favourite with our friends. I chose the pasta with Paramus that appeared... More

As a vegetarian they provided a beautiful pasta meal! Can't quite remember the Italian name but definitely suitable to non meat eaters! Would 100% go back with friends :-)

Another brilliant evening at Vesuvio for my friend's 40th Birthday. There was a group of 12 girls - the service was second to none and nothing was too much. We will be back soon for another girly night out !

Went her for a birthday meal and the food was excellent. The starter platter was an excellent balanced mix of types and the amount was just right. The mains were very good with 3 out of 4 diners enjoying theirs [although we had to take some of the pizza home in a doggy bag, but it was just was excellent... More

We had a big group prior to a wedding on the Saturday. Though we had a big group, all of the food was delivered at the same time and was really well cooked and presented. I would highly recommend the mussels they are in a superb Spivey sauce. The staff are courteous and efficient, for a big group they had... More

We have been unable to visit for some time. A significantly refreshed menu incorporating our old favourites with tempting new items. Our party took opportunity of tasting each others. All great. The team were more than happy to discuss and to ensure that allergy issues were addressed. It was a double birthday and we were surprised and delighted at the... More
