“Best pizza in Sabang”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We went to the Garden of Eden earlier in the night and had a horrible dinner. A dinner we actually had to send back. Instead, we walked over to Vesuvio's and enjoyed some of the best pizza I have had in Asia. It was filled with peppers and artichoke with perfect sauce. Not to mention, it was a brick oven pizza!!

I'm so pleased that we were able to serve you a pizza that you were able to enjoy. We pride ourselves on our pizzas and our motto "if you don't like it you don't pay for it" still stands after two years in operation. I'm pleased to say we have only had one person who got their money back. So I guess you can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all of the people all of the time. We are always striving to improve our pizzas and welcome critique own our food as it helps us to insure we never drop the ball. Thanks again and we hope to see you again.

“Great Pizza - Fast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Vesuvio's is located on the main street in from the Sabang pier. We got a couple of pizzas to go, before jumping on a boat to a remote beach, so we didn't dine at the restaurant.

The pies were ordered from their menu - a spicy pepperoni (with jalapenos) and a combo meat/veg. We waited for them to be ready, and the staff brought us glasses and cold water to enjoy while waiting. It was a hot day, so that was very appreciated. The wait wasn't long, though, and we were on our way.

The pizzas were eaten maybe an hour later, by that time cold, and were excellent. That's my benchmark for a good pizza with good ingredients - if it's still good after it's cooled off, then it gets my approval. These definitely did.

Thank you for your review. Like you I love a cold pizza and especially in the morning after a quiet night with friends and a few beers. However saying that there is nothing like our wood fired pizza straight out of the oven and hopefully on your next trip to Sabang you will have the time to partake in a fresh out of the oven pizza. Thanks again.

“Great pizza - how about create your own?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Friendly helpful staff and great pizza. As in other places we ate pizza in the Philippines, the concept of 'create your own' is completely alien. You can have half-and-half but only of the set pizzas on the menu. If you start with - I'll have mushrooms and peppers on one half and..... - you won't get anywhere, however hard you try and I really did try. Great pizzas though!

Thank you for your review and we are pleased you thought our pizzas are to your liking. On the subject of make your own , we are prepared to do as much as we can to satisfy our customers. We offer half and half and quarter as well. We offer no charge for extra toppings. However to offer make your own is not possible on a daily basis as we are a small shop and not geared to operate like a western high end pizzeria where you generally have to wait anywhere from 30 minutes plus for your pizza. We take pride in offering your pizza in ten minutes or less this would be impossible with everyone wanting something different on their pizzas. The logistics do not allow us to offer design your own. Ordering and then dressing individual pizzas and then costing is not a viable option for us. However saying that if you come back to Vesuvios at some stage and ask to speak to me personally I will succeed to your request and personally make your pizza to your design. Thanks again for your review and I look forward to personally serving you in the future.

“Best Pizza and Pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The pizza in this place is awesome. Thin-crust, brick oven-baked, nice cheese and fresh ingredients. Not exactly "cheap" but among the cheaper restaurants in PG and definitely worth the money. The pastas are quite good too.
