Seating was nice and the service was good as we were one of two tables. The starter - Bruschetta Vesuvio was nice. Unfortunately on the menu, it states that Parma Ham is served with the Bruschetta although the ham that was served on my Bruschetta was a different type of prosciutto. I wouldn't say that it wasn't of good quality,... More

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.
