But Vesuvio serves well-cooked, fresh Italian classics at very reasonable prices. Easy to have a two-course meal with drinks for under £40. Service is friendly from both the owner and other waiting staff. Thoroughly recommended.

Pasta as the starter and then chicken escalopes with potatoes and vegetables. It was a feast and fantastically cooked. we had an excellent time there. The staff... More

The food is a little expensive for what it is and it is food that i normally cook my my husband and I, however a good experience whilst we were there... More

I went to Vesuvio with my 5 friends. We all ordered different food (starter, main course and desert) and we all really like it. Food was delicious:))!! Highly recommended!! The place is really small and noisy so if you are looking for romantic place that's not place for you. The staff is really nice and friendly however our table was... More

Thanks to Vesuvios for another fabulous meal. You never fail to impress us and you remain our No. 1 top restaurant. We've tried out places but nowhere else comes close. Last week we tried an establishment in Glinton on the basis of their excellent Trip Advisor reviews but sadly they didn't impress us. Well done Vesuvio we will be back... More

I have now visited Vesuvio 6 or 7 times. Our last visit was a disaster and it was my daughters wish we returned on this occasion. I am really glad we did as the restaurant redeemed itself and the meal, service and everything was spot on. I had the anti pasta meats, cheese, olives and bruschetta starter which is probably...

Just wanted to say my daughter thoroughly enjoyed her evening last night. It was a good way to start their netball season and for the girls to meet their sponsors. Thank you for supporting Whittlesey Warriors.
