We have visited Vesuvio Romantica on many occasions, as a couple, in a family group and with a party of friends. Salv was always the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble and, being awkward and not liking certain ingredients, he always made me a separate sauce. Everything was cooked from fresh, if you had a special occasion Salv would... More

Salv was a master chef and a master host and he has sadly and suddenly passed. He will be remembered by those of us who loved his food as a maestro. I wish whoever takes over the restaurant well and I will give them a go , but Salvs passion for cooking and giving pleasure to people who came to... More

Visited during the Swansea air show unfortunately the place was extremely understaffed with half the tables uncleared the food I felt was average . Most probably would not return however the one member of staff did try her utmost to make the experience exceptional

Been a few times now after finding the place on tastecard. It's always been really good with decent house wine. The second time I went the chief custom built me a dish and gave me another to try free, which was nice (I am one of very few people that likes chilli in cream sauce). Every dish I've had has...

We went here for a friends birthday and we all had a wonderful time. There were 14 of us and everyone enjoyed they're food. Also the place itself has a lovely warm feel to it and the staff were fantastic.

My boyfriend and I saw the reviews on here and decided to check it out as we prefer small businesses to chain restaurants. This did not disappoint! As we booked we got a lovely table with a great view overlooking the harbour outside and the waitress was very attentive. She quickly supplied us with drinks and a basket of bred... More

I ordered from a set menu which was horrendous and we were not informed about when we made the booking over the phone. The food was diabolical,... More
