“Good Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We ate at Vesuvio for the first time and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. There is a bar which offers Happy Hour Food and Drinks but we ate on the restaurant side. I had one of the best pizzas with spicy sausage and the sweetest onions and peppers I've ever tasted. My hubby had the lasagna and it was great as well. They have a nice wine list and I tried a sangiovese malbec blend that I really enjoyed! Service was pleasant and good. We will return to try other offerings on the menu.

“Good food and fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Loved the roof top bar! Great area with heat lamps, comfy seating, bar and food service. One menu item was genius, "Adult Happy Meal" with a burger, fries and a well drink! If we weren't having dinner downstairs, I would have ordered that.

Dinner was good. Although I initially thought the prices were a bit high, I think it was a good value. Ample sized portions of the main fish or meat and the vegetable accompaniments were very good.

Worth a visit!

“Excellent food, nice surprise !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

Sat in the bar because we were tired from travel and didn't think we were hungry. Smelled and saw the food an ordered the grilled artichokes, caprice with the buffala mozzarella, shrimp Caesar and baby back ribs. Everything was excellent, nicely presented and generous portions. Eat here, you won't be sorry.

“Nice rooftop bar. Food was good - interesting options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

If you ever wanted to try black ink pasta, this is the place. Food was good. Service was good. Rooftop bar (heated) is a nice plus.
