We are frequent visitors to the Vesuvio Pizzeria over by the Stadium, it is probably my favorite Restaurant in Swansea as I know the menu inside out and the quality never (ever) drops, the one thing I will state is that the service at the Pizzeria can be painfully slow and un-attentive at times.
Anyway, one day we were in the City center and we decided to call for some food, hearing about this place down in the Marina we called down. On arrival the place was nice enough (a lot smaller than the Pizzeria) and we were greeted by a girl I recognised from the Pizzeria, the place was quiet so we were a little dubious. The familiar waitress made us feel very welcome which was nice, once seated she showed us the menu and went through everything very thoroughly, she even advised my Girlfriend to ask the chef to add some Chili to her dish, as what she was ordering was also the waitress' favorite dish.
I cannot remember what we had as it was a while ago, what stands out is that the food was superb and the service was literally first class. The longer we stayed the busier it got and I overheard the friendly waitress mentioning Trip Advisor having a great impact on business. Well, you deserve all the plaudits, your enthusiasm for the food made a lovely meal, a very special meal!
The one thing I would mention is that the Menu is very fish orientated, this may be a major draw or a major put off for some. I have a friend who I compete against in a friendly "Recommend a Restaurant" competition and this little place is my trump card to Wow him (my fish loving friend) over Christmas. Despite not being a lover of fish, this place still has some lovely dishes to choose from.
The only reason this is not my favorite Restaurant above the Pizzeria is in the name, basically I prefer Pizza over fish. Just like its sister restaurant, this place is pretty much unbeatable when it comes to Value for Money.
Waitress: Keep up the good work! Bosses: Give that girl a pay rise!
