A larger than average Italian restaurant offering a good range of traditional food and wine. Service is prompt, attentive, and efficient. Attractive ambience. Prices very reasonable. Ideal for families with children, also having good cloakroom/etc facilities. Ample free parking.Ideal for group bookings, or when various entertainments are provided.

Had to write a review to say thank you to Ciro and the team for last night. I thought I'd take the family out for a Christmas lunch- although there was no room for when I wanted to go as they were fully booked they still managed to accommodate us with some carefully planned timing! As always good food and... More

Nice place. But not too keen on the small tank they keep the gold fish in though. Made me feel uncomfortable. Food was good. Band was good. Bar was expensive though. Bar staff seemed friendly. They also felt sorry for the fish.

Dear Ruby Roo, Following our absolutely bizarre phonecall you have now decided to take this one step further than a drunken complaint to my bar staff, you called the hotel this morning and made a further complaint and now you have decided to continue this on Tripadvisor. I have personally confirmed to you that the fish was bought over 5... More

We visited for Sunday lunch yesterday. The place was absolutely heaving with several large parties. However we were seated at the booked time, our order was taken quickly. The food arrived promptly. It was hot , well cooked and well presented. Loads of meat on the Sunday roasts. A good assortment of vegetables. We weren't rushed. We got desserts and... More

We regularly visit this retaurant and have never had any reason to complain. This time I asked for an arrangement for a surprise birthday party. I have to say that the service given was excellent. The party was arranged and we duly arrived to the great surprise of my wife. Everyone enjoyed their meal and drinks, with the usual excellent... More

Visited here a few times now, as we live locally, food is always very tasty and fresh, for a reasonable price. I had the pizza with goat's cheese, other half had pizza and parents had lasagne & risotto, we all enjoyed our meal and left 4 clean plates :) Well done Vesuvios, keep up the good work!
