Having eaten here once before we came back again to try the pizza. From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, really friendly service without being intrusive (I don't just mean they were nice enough, they were chatting to us about our day, our food choices - making great conversation as if we'd been there loads...

Not sure why this restaurant has so many high ratings. It wasn't bad but it wasn't amazing either. Between 6 of us we had a variety of dishes which were all just average. Pleasant enough but certainly nothing special.

I had the pleasure of dining at Vesuvio for the third time last night with friends. The restaurant was very busy, however the management were still able to squeeze us in for a last minute booking. As on the previous two occasions, we received polite and prompt service upon arrival. We all ordered pizzas and a side dish, along with... More

Ate here with friends on a Groupon deal, pizza, side and wine, £12 for 2 people. We chose Calzone each and various side salads and roast potatoes. The calzone was huge and absolutely delicious, the salads fresh and plentiful and lovely roast potatoes with rosemary. Parmesan cheese was brought to the table and added liberally. Very welcoming and friendly staff... More

After a long day at the Burghleigh Horse show, we came across two Italian restaurants - one (Vesuvio) virtually full, the other empty. Trying our luck, we asked after a table, and the staff were able to squeeze us in onto the last table in the place. Very pleasant, attentive staff in what turned out to be a family run... More

First visit to the restaurant using a groupon deal. Food was ok but nothing special, would rather go to prezzo, pizza ok , calzone good . Side dishes poor with no dressing on either of the salads and oven chips !! Service was poor with waitresses with an attitude a real let down to what otherwise could have potential. Wouldn't... More

Another fabulous meal at Vesuvio. All three courses were delicious as was the wine and complimentary bread with oil and balsamic. Very efficient service as always. Well done for keeping up the high standards. Enjoy your break, you deserve it.
