Truly awesome pizza!!!

I thought that I will never find a pizza like that in the north of Italy but I was wrong. Vesuvio is absolutely fantastic pizza and everyone visiting Desenzano should go there at least ones. It is not a restaurant, but simple pizza place with friendly owner who makes the best pizzas in Desenzano!!!

English not spoken here. Who needs it... Ciro, owner and pizza maker, knows rudimentary English and the rest is hand gestures and pointing. Works great. Fresh dough, thin crust, local salami, recently picked bell peppers, yum! Add two beverages and a side of hot and crispy fries ( fresh oil) and we were in heaven. Use a GPS or you... More

Friarelli & salsiccia was The best choice I could have made last night while taking a bunch of friends away from a tuoi al restaurant evening to then stick to this take away pizza place.

After a long hard day of appreciating the beauty of the lake and visiting the charming local sites, a delicious pizza from Vesuvio will be just the thing that I needed. Pizza is delicious, dough made to perfection, the staff are very very friendly. Highly recommend. However this is not a restaurant. Although there is seating available, 80% of customers... More
