Excellent Breakfast

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.

Really impressed by this restaurant having moved to this side of Northampton, mainly focussed on the key elements - quality of food, great service and value for money. My wife and I had three courses each and tried a bit of each others. My meatball starters were wonderful and the great tomato sauce was mopped up with the bread. The... More

Wife and I decided to head to Vesuvio's for a Sunday Lunch and (fortunately) phoned to book a table. On arrival, the place was 'buzzing' but staff were waiting to meet everyone as they were arriving and we were quickly shown to our table. For anyone who hasn't been to this restaurant, it is huge and being busy, there was... More

Usually stop in for a takeaway pizza, the tastiest and best priced locally but have been in for a meal before which has been great. They also are very well organised and helpful for their function rooms as well

If your looking for authentic Italian cuisine look no further. We had such a great choice from a sumptuous menu. I plumped for a traditional Sunday roast whereas my girlfriend chose a proper Italian dish. Calamari Mussels and prawns in a Rissotto. Couldn't fault the service and waiting time was not long at all. Generous portions and lovely service.

I was here with friends for an evening with Philip Kinsella where we also enjoyed a 2 course buffet provided by the Hotel. What a fantastic evening. Not only was Philip himself brilliant but the service, professionalism of the staff and the outstanding buffet made it. There was plenty to choose from followed by tea or coffee. A fabulous evening... More

This is a great place to take your family; run by an Italian family, children are welcomed and this is reflected in the menu. Good wholesome Italian style food is served by friendly staff and the tiramisu is not to be missed!
