Not much to say except, generally good, not fantastic. Starter of fried calamari; a bit like something they bought in. I had lamb which was not bad but not memorable. The home made tiramisu was, on the other hand, fantastic. Very moist and tasty. Service was excellent, friendly and attentive.

Sharnbrook Hotel & Vesouvio is one of the best restaurants in the area, They are a very friendly family run business and the Manager Ciro is never far from hand. The food is excellent whatever you choose from the menu and is all good value for money, This can be high on the list for a lot of people in... More

We had our wedding reception here and want to say thank you for making our wedding such a great day. The food was fantastic, lots of guests commented how good it was. We didn't have to worry about anything as they are very organised and make sure everything runs so smoothly, big thanks to Ciro and all the team. We... More

What a fabulous find! I wanted somewhere nice for my birthday meal but also good for my coeliac daughter. I searched online and was very impressed to find that this Italian restaurant not only had gluten-free options, it had a whole GF menu! For starters we enjoyed GF doughballs and garlic mushrooms whilst my husband had the ribs, all about... More

Sorry guys. Not the best. Ok it was busy which is great for any restaurant but the quality of the food was disappointing. The starters made us chuckle however the meat in the mains was not up to par for a restaurant of this calibre. Stick to a toby carvery next time!

We took our grandchildren for an authentic Italian meal and we're not disappointed. Everything about Vesuvio was perfect. The children enjoyed the pasta and pizza followed by ice cream and grandparents enjoyed a relaxing environment with excellent service and good quality food. We will definitely be back.

We had our wedding at the Sharnbrook hotel in 2012 (which was excellent!) and we have been back to Vesuvios for both of our anniversaries. The food is lush, the service is wonderful and we are made to feel special every time we visit. I've been to the hotel for work functions and parties, and have also used their pizza... More

What a lovely well furnished restaurant with clean cool marble floors and crisp white/red tablecloths. Service was excellent - serving staff polite, cheerful and helpful. Ordered the prawn cocktail which was plentiful - lots of prawns, sauce and fresh salad with it. Beaiful little rosettes of butter accompanied the basket of bread which went with the cocktail (not priced as... More

If you want a really good Italian meal, then VesuviO's is your place! Our party of 14 had almost 14 different menu choices, but each and every one of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The wait staff were great, too, very friendly and they went beyond the call of duty to help decorate our table and surrounds for a 50th... More

Have been many times for Sunday lunch which is busy, sparkling and full of Italian family parties but went recently for a weekday lunch. Even without too many other diners it's still a very relaxing, very Italian space with the B&W movie classics playing endlessly on the wall screens. There is a very reasonably priced OAP Menu but we went... More
