A good night out with friends

The meal was good... The ambience and decor was average for an Italian restaurant.. I thought that the young servers were not very professional and naive.

One of the best Italian restaurants I've eaten in, including many in Italy.Staff were very friendly, service was excellent (despite the place being full), and the food was gorgeous. with a tremendous range of seafood dishes. I'll definitely be back again next time I go to the Straw Bear Festival

This was my second visit to Vesuvios with Whittlesey friends who are regular customers and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant was full , especially considering it was January, which I always take as a good sign and there was a lively atmosphere. The menu is authentically Italian using fresh ingredients with good choices for both meat and fish lovers as... More

Visited Friday lunch time service very quick and friendly. Food great and in our opinion better than the big well known chains. Good menu choice first of many visits. Was busy for lunch time, do not be put off by this, if restaurants are busy it means the food is good.

Our party had different meals some were good other mixed it wouldn't stop us returning but might be a bit fussier over what we ordered. Couldn't fault the friendly staff or service just a bit disappointed

My wife and I love to eat at Vesuvio. Pep and Maria are always so friendly and warming to us. The staff are friendly and always obliging. The food has always been of good quality and not overpriced. We find it very handy being local and wood recommend this family run restaurant to any one that wants a nice meal.

Went on a Saturday night impromptu as cousin had booked a table. Was busy in January so always a good sign. Lots of menu choice, immaculately clean everywhere and great food. Enjoyed a bottle of prosecco which was reasonably priced too!

I am afraid that after a very successful party in 2014, the New Years Eve Party of 2015 was the complete opposite. I booked without realising that it was at Sir Harry Smith School. I found out later. The place was freezing, with long walks down cold corridors to fetch the buffet and drinks, no heating, plastic cups, guests sat... More
