My daughters wedding reception had been planned for two years with a great deal of help from Cirio. Nothing was too much trouble. Staff were brilliant. Food was fantastic and served very quickly and efficiently. Cirio was a brilliant MC and kept everything running smoothly. We were never kept waiting too long and we were all made to feel important.... More

I arranged a sunday lunch for our family at this restaurant for my husband's 60th and we weren't disappointed! Attentive staff, delicious food and wonderful warm atmosphere. The youngest members of our party (14 months, 2yrs and 4yrs) were made very welcome too. From our arrival where we enjoyed our prosecco in the bar area to the table which was... More

This was about 2-3 years ago I went to the restaurant with my partner, it was such a lovely evening. We had chosen the chef special and it was delicious. I will go there again.

Enjoyed a lovely meal, great service. Relaxing atmosphere & not rushed to get through your meal so they could seat someone else.

Fantastic food, authentic Italian, which is excellent. Great portion sizes. Never rushed through courses, which is a bugbear of mine with a lot of restaurants. They are also very helpful with special requests.

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 where it was first come - first served. As... 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
