Excellent birthday meal

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... read 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

I've been working in Peterborough for some time now and used Tripadvisor to find a local restaurant. Vesuvio was in the top ten and within 20 mins drive. Myself and 3 colleagues attended. Lovely little restaurant, with a car park around the corner, the food was lovely and plentiful

On Friday night we fancied eating out, and my husband suggested we try Vesuvio. We have been before but not for a while. I called and booked a table for 3. We arrived and were greeted by a friendly young lady. We ordered a childs meal for our 6 year old daughter but were told that it was not available... More

Visited on a really busy Saturday night, shared fish platter starter, steak with 2 different potatoes and tiramisu to finish. Had a really great evening, the restaurant was buzzing filled with chatter and laughter, a great sign that everyone was enjoying themselves. All our courses were really yummy, the young waitresses were lovely and we will certainly return again in... More

We visited the restaurant last year with our daughter and her boyfriend to celebrate our daughter's birthday. We chose Vesuvio due to it being rated 2nd in the Peterborough area (and didn't want Indian - the first choice). Everything was very good - no problems with food or staff. Cost reasonable. You won't be disappointed to dine here.
