TVRCC 50th bash

We visited VesuviO as part of the TVRCC 50th anniversary. Wondering where they were going to put all the cars, we discovered this was on the upper lawn...quite a display...and one which kept the wedding party interested all night. The TVRCC tables were all arranged for us as large circular tables... read more

If we decide at the last minute to eat out at the weekend, Vesuvio is our standby. They nearly always have a table - not because it's unpopular, but because of the size of the dining room! Also on the large scale is the menu, lots to choose from, Italian obviously, but between the usual pizza and pasta there are... More

VesuviO is always my first choice venue for family celebrations. If your party consists of 8 to 10 people, I always make sure I ask for a round table. The main menu is neither endless of limited. Pasta dish portions vary a bit. Rigatoni portion too big for me. Ravioli portion too small for me. Main pizza size (11") perfect... More

Maybe I may expect a bit much. Firstly when I take the wife out for a nice meal I believe that the waiter / waitress is there as a paid job and should perhaps listen to the diner. The restaurant was fairly busy but not in any way full so when our order was taken we ordered some olives and... More

I booked VesuviO's in advance for a team pizza making event we did yesterday and 8 of us had a fantastic time. We were looked after by Ciro who talked through the schedule and brought out his authentic Italian chef to show us how pizza tossing and making was done! We all made our own pizzas from spinning the dough... More

Joined the Sunday morning drive out. Caterlng for over 200 people in one sitting is not easy. The breakfastfood was excellent - such a variety and freshly cooked. Staff were very polite and attentive. Well done to Ciro and his team. Well worth a visit.
