Consistent - always a pleasant meal and good service

I recommend this restaurant for those of you looking for a good classic Italian meal. Been going here for years and I can always expect good service, good food (extensive menu) and good wine.

We have been coming to Trattoria Il Vesuvio for many years. The drinks, food and dessert have been consistently great and portions are on the large side! The staff is always friendly and accommodating. Best to make a reservation as you take a chance on the restaurant being filled to capacity and not getting a table.

We are from Framingham and came to Lenox for five days. The last night we went to this restaurant What a treat! We felt so welcomed, sort of like family. The food is fresh and portions large. We started off with the arancini balls. Soooo good. Salmon and shrimp dish, just superb plus the Veal a la Mancini as well.... More

My wife had some work-related business in Lenox, so we decided to make it an overnight trip. Spotted Trattoria Il Vesuvio on the internet and was encouraged by the reviews. We were very surprised to discover the restaurant was not far from the Days Inn where we were staying. We arrived early (around 5:30 on a Friday Night) and was... More

We had a wonderful meal at Il Vesuvio - once we found it. We passed it in the dark three times: the gilded lettering made the roadside sign difficult to read at nighttime, and the restaurant is set back from the road, so it's easy to miss. The food, however, was very good, the prices are fair, and the waitstaff... More

Though the atmosphere is a little dated, the food is great. The Fra Diavolo is the best I've ever had and I've tried it all over the country.

We really enjoyed our meal at Trattoria Vesuvio! We started off with the calamari which was light and delicious and served with a tasty marinara sauce...not rubbery like it is in so many places! Our server Kellin was fantastic and highly attentive to every detail plus he has a wonderful smile and pleasant manner! The meals were plentiful and of... More

Picked this restaurant pretty much at random. Service was excellent and the food matched the service. The roast veal is the high point of the visit. My wife's linguine with clams was not as al denote as desired but the sauce was very good
