We have visited this place with friends for a lunch. Hmm what can I say? I was dining here few years back and because I didn't have the best experience that time it took me few years to finally come back. My Friends thought it will be a good place for a Sunday lunch. Decor is ok - it's a... More

We never have had a meal here. It's been our Friday night restaurant for a couple of years. The service is always impeccable and the Italian food is the best in the area.

Visited with friends on Friday night, pleasantly surprised to be entertained by an Italian singer! Had a great meal - pizzas were delicious with fresh toppings and we also opted for the lovely Italian homemade desserts - the doughnut Zeppola was awesome !!

We came here for our wedding anniversary and had a lovely meal. It was Sunday which is family dining day so it wasn't quiet but it had a very friendly atmosphere. The food was lovely and very generous portions. Although there are probably more desserts to choose from than starters and mains that's not a problem and it was all... More

After having a wonderful pre Christmas meal with friends decided to go back to have a special romantic meal but this is NOT the place to go for this type of occasion. Unfortunately when booking the table we were not informed that there was already 3 large parties booked and our table would be surrounded by the 3 parties. Sorry... More

Dear Benitachell91, thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to VesuviO and I am sorry that you did not have the experience you expected from us. Unfortunately we are a very popular restaurant and on the specific evening we were indeed fully booked with 3 large celebrations as well as romantic and casual diners on tables... More

Food was superb and the staff could not be more helpful and friendly. 3 roasts of different meats and all were faultless. Childrens meals... More

“The best luncheon ever”; that was the unanimous response from our members who attended the Sharnbrook Hotel for our Annual Luncheon a few days ago. Everything was perfect; the food, the very attentive staff – nothing was too much trouble for them – and the ambiance of the Amalfi Suite. We need not look any further for our next year’s... More

Last Sunday we took some friends out to Sunday Lunch, and our natural choice was to go to VesuviO. Yet again they did not disappoint. Excellent food and service, staff helpful and friendly...... All this and at a reasonable cost. You cannot fault them. If you haven't tried them then give them a try.
