Last week a small group of us went to Vesuvio's, a restaurant that we hadn't been to in a while. Ordinarily there, I get a pasta from the menu, but this time I ordered one of the specials: the grouper on a bed of beet risotto. The fish was overcooked and salty (another in our party had the same assessment... More

Wonderful, unique experience. Atmosphere is great. The remodel of the old Mexican restaurant was very well done. Food was amazing. Waiter had a great personality and made the night fun. Presentation of menu could have been better. More education by the waiter of the menu and entrees and appetizers would be nice. My wife is part Italian but I don't... More

I had the pleasure of dining here in mid July on a Tuesday evening. The restaurant was not very busy that day. The staff were very pleasant and sat us immediately. The waitstaff were very friendly and new the menu very well and were able to answer all our questions about the specials. I had the spinach/goat cheese salad with... More

This was my first time at the new location. I was concerned that the food and service would not be as fantastic but was very pleased with both. Several of us had specials that were amazing and the rest ordered off the menu. Everyone in our group was so pleased with meal. Paul, our server, gave us the right amount... More

From the appetizers, salads, and main courses to desserts and drinks, I haven't had an Italian meal like this since actually visiting Italy a few years ago. Great atmosphere, great service, great food. Vesuvio knows Italian.

We have visited Vesuvio Bistro at its previous location in the Best Western. The new location is larger with more room between tables. The food we had was very good. The menu has food from all regions of Italy; not heavy on the Southern Italian style which is often the case at Italian restaurants. The wine list is quite impressive.We... More

My wife and I stop by after eating dinner elsewhere for a couple of drinks. Dan made a really good old fashion and a really good martini. My wife wanted a "dessert" drink and Dan asked her a couple of questions. He then invents a new drink! We had a great time. Thanks.

The reviews were great so we decided to give it a try. This may well have been the worst meal I have ever had. We waited almost an hour after ordering for our food to arrive. The steak was burnt beyond eating, charred completely black on the bottom. My daughter said the lasagna was OK, but Olive Garden would have... More
