As a waitress myself I know the importance of good service which Vesuvios lacks immensely. I have been many times and each time is worse. Staff make you feel like you are doing them a favour and give attitude. The food is always amazing cannot fault it however they really should consider employing new staff as it puts a major... More

Visited this evening. Can't fault the food and staff were polite. However service was extremely slow and haphazard. Thirty minutes after being seated we were asked for our order. Over twenty minutes later our starter arrived. It's just not acceptable. Customers who arrived long after ourselves were served before us. Once our meal finished the bill took nearly half hour...

Went there for a birthday meal with my partner and was a bit disappointed with the overall experience. The service was not very good with us going in for an early meal and there was only about 6-8 tables of people in, the service was very slow and when we were served it was rushed and felt like we were...

Having previously visited the now-closed sister restaurant Vesuvio Romantica, we were surprised at the much livelier atmosphere at the Pizzeria Vesuvio. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit, good service despite the place being pretty full, and the food was top notch.

This has been a favourite restaurant of ours for years. Visited to celebrate my mums birthday 7th may 2014. Apparently new owners same menu but our favourite meal chicken pollo bianco very different curdled and bad tasting. Cheese garlic bread not cooked probably. Will not be visiting again. Nicola.

As per the title it is a bit of a shock to see the recent poor reviews, we usually eat down here as a group on special occasions and once again it didn't disappoint. We dined here on Good Friday and the place was full which shows that more diners are happy with the place than not. Excellent starters, service... More

Well what can I say the food here is always a delight, fresh and stunning with a selection of warm fresh bread on arrival. the lack of a friendly helpful service is a real let down for what could be a all round lovely time. Such a shame that some of the staff are so unwelcoming while others can't do... More

We were a party of 25 passing through Swansea on Good Friday and it was one of the kids' birthday. Vesuvio coped well with our exuberance and delivered lovely pizza to us all with gret efficiency and charm. Thank you Vesuvio.

Have been dining here for years and have had many nice meals, until recently. The last 3 times we have eaten here has been very poor, scrambled eggs in carbonara, and burnt asparagus. Overall very poor food and the staff are extremely rude and dismissive. It's a shame really as we have been enjoying pizza vesuvio for many years but... More
