Really good value restaurant

We visited Vesuvio's to celebrate our son's 18th birthday. Menu is extensive with some really nice dishes available. Food arrived promptly and the portions were just right. None of us left anything on our plate but we didn't feel overly stuffed. One small criticism was that the Insalata Caprese... read more

Decided to go to Vesuvio based on Trip Advisor ratings and we were not disappointed. It was a fantastic atmosphere, out for my dad and my birthday celebrations and our table had a banner on there waiting for us. The service was impeccable and attentive, the food was very quick to be served and all tasted and looked lovely. They... More

They should move soon to a bigger place or increase the price of the... More

Very attentive, welcoming staff. We had a wonderful, authentic, well presented meal. The sharing starter of meats, olives, cheese, bread and dressed salad was great. The main of pasta was cooked perfectly. The whole evening was to be recommended.

I have been to this restaurant many times and have always had a very good meal and been met by friendly staff. In particular we spent New Year's Eve at this restaurant and had a brilliant time. Also the previous New Year's Eve was my sisters 60th birthday and we celebrated with a lovely meal in the late afternoon
