Vesuvio is one of Little Rocks finest restaurants. Great atmosphere, Great food and great service. Make reservations, and you will really enjoy yourself here. There is a good selection of food with pasta, steaks and seafood. Something for everyone and everyone will enjoy it. I strongly recommend Vesuvio for any occasion, or even just for a great night out on... More

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...

We were planning to try another restaurant, but the wait was too long. Vesuvio took reservations, so we decided to try them. We were greeted and sat immediately (it was 7:45pm). The food was very good, and the waiter made several helpful suggestions. Only problem: ran out of a special that we wanted, but an excellent alternate was selected. Only... More

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
