The place is run down, not too clean & has no atmosphere but the pizza is great. The service is good, beer is cold & mediocre wines. If they clean up, paint & reinvest in the place it would be a lot nicer. Go if you are looking for great pizza .

You want to go to their original location - small in Zona#4, located on a busy commercial street.. A picture of the Vesuvio volcano painted on the wall. A wood-burning pizza oven turns out thin-crust, wonderful pizza! Ask for an anchovy, or fresh garlic pizza. Close your eyes and you are in Napoli! Other locations in the city; more spacious,... More

A must when in Guatemala. Huge 1 meter pizza. $40 US dollars. Thin crust lots of meat. Light sauce. It takes almost two people to carry it. Sit a long way away from the ovens they are alway going strong and hot.

for me, probably the best pizza in the city. If you like a thin crust pizza with fresh cut ingrediants you have to try it out. My family and I love all pizzas including the chains like Pizza Hut and Dominos but Vesuvios is a definate step above.

If it was round you might vthink you were i n New York. Wood fire brick oven. Great service. They brought an extension cord to the table so that we could stream USA v. Costa Rica soccer match, on-line.

This place has good pizza. It is better to dine in then to carry out. They use real wood fire ovens to cook the pizza so sometimes parts of it are not as cooked as you would like. It is better when it is crispy and fresh when you eat there. Also you get to see your pizza cooked! If... More

The best pizza with brick oven I have ever tried. The restaurant has a unique flavor that no words can describe. It is not the nicest or cleanest place around but all that is forgotten with the first bite of their hot-fresh-out-of-the-oven pizza. Ideal for a family meal as they offer half a meter and a full meter pizza sizes.
