It was a family night for us and everyone wanted Vesuvio! Used open table to reserve. Dinner was excellent in taste. The chef's specials were off the chart. Service was top notch. This is why we go back often.

Since everyone at our table of six had ordered something different, and each of us loved every bite, I would give this restaurant a very high rating. The atmosphere was conducive to conversations and enjoyment...looking forward to many return visits!

My husband and I visited Vesuvio for the first time last night. It was our two year weddding anniversary. My favorite food is pasta; however, having a gluten allery, it is not something I often get to enjoy out at restaurants. Knowing this, my husband wanted to dine somewhere on our anniversary that could accomodate me. He searched online and... More

There is a good selection of food with pasta, steaks and seafood. Something for everyone and everyone will enjoy it.

This is a little gem of an Italian restaurant! We were promptly seated upon arrival. I ordered a white chocolate martini which was heavenly! I had the arugula filled ravioli and my fiance had the rigatoni. Both were excellently prepared. The prices seemed pretty reasonable to us.

This was our first time at Vesuvio since they changed locations, but food was still great…Best Italian restaurant in Little Rock, hands down.

An upscale Italian eatery that specializes in Sicilian. Move into its new digs awhile ago and has increased its presence in West Little Rock. Some of the best homemade dishes around. Sauces are authentic as are the numerous options ranging from pastas, meats, soups and desserts. A bit pricey for Italian but the ambiance and service makes up for it.

This place is really great! We went for our valentines dinner, only we went the day after Valentine's Day to avoid a huge crowd. Everything we ordered was delicious. The prices were reasonable, for a special occasion dinner. This is not a place I could afford on a regular basis, but it was worth every penny.

On a recent long weekend visit to Little Rock, we were pleasantly surprised to stumble onto Vesuvio Bistro, a welcome change from what appears to be an abundance of chain restaurant options in the Little Rock area. We were only a few minutes away when we called and they were able to seat us in the bar area as soon... More

This place has apparently been around a while and has built up a regular clientele of what appeared to be mostly well-fixed middle-aged and up patrons. The waiters seemed to know people at various tables. I think they have moved somewhat recently to this older building which had been a succession of restaurants just off Rodney Parham Road. It is...
