Best Italian in Little Rock. Decent Wine List.

Arrived on a busy Friday Night sans reservation. Very concerned host looked quite relieved when I indicated I'd like to sit at the bar - problem solved! Very attentive service from both the bartender and the manager (owner?). Had a lovely Chianti Classico Riserva to accompany the daily salad and... read more

I was visiting Little Rock with a group of friends. Since the reviews were so good we made a reservation for 14. The menu has many nice choices and they were able to accommodate dietary restrictions. Everyone liked their dinner, the food was fresh and served hot. My only complaint was our waiter, he didn't seem to know the menu... More

Had a great dinner here with friends from work. Menu had a nice variety to choose from and then had additional specials, which the waiter was well versed in what was available and could offer his take on what was good. Food was excellent tasting and portion size was good.

Everything about Vesuvio's was top notch. Wait staff, wine, salads, main course, all was served with excellence. This was a business dinner with another couple and each of us was very impressed with our dining experience.

Cannot stop visiting Vesuvio's. The food is outstanding, service wonderful and ambience out of site. If you like real Italian, this is the place to go.

This is one of our favorite Go-To places to dine in Little Rock. The ambiance is cozy and inviting with linen tablecloths and napkins and candles on every table. The tables are set far enough apart that on most nights you can talk quietly and hear each other. The service is always excellent, the food is consistently good (creative without... More

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.
