Authentic pizza bases wood fired, and fresh authentic handmade pasta in simply the best sauces! I cannot wait to visit again, truly wholesome satisfying food. Don't forget to take your wine with you to top off the perfect meal!

Tried the "Mexican" which is meant to have pepperoni but clearly no pepperoni to be seen, just cheap processed saussage. We also got the "Napoli" which was equally as disappointing. I get the Pizza home after a 5 minute drive and both are cold, soggy, wet base and look terrible. Have they even cooked them? Who knows as I've had... More

Decor is nothing special. Great for an informal quick bite though. Gourmet pizzas are fantastic. If you don't mind dated decor and less than comfortable seating, this place is worth a visit to try the pizzas.

Have been here for takeaway and eat in. Always excellent, Food & Service. Friendly, polite staff, awesome food cooked perfectly every time. Great family atmosphere. One downfall and really not an inconvenience is no eftpos, cash only. Highly recommended best pizza, pasta and Italian dishes on the coast.

There was a large group of about 20 people before us, noisily celebrating a birthday. We ordered an waited,... More

If I told you some of the nicest pizzas on the coast were between $14-17 would you believe me? Vesuvius has become a staple of my family in the last 5 years and there's a good reason why. The food. They are very rigid about their prep. This shop is run by first and second generations Italians who became renown... More

The best pizza and pasta on the coast. Very good service and always a complimentary garlic bread thrown in. Thin delicious pizza base and beautiful flavored toppings. Can't beat the wood fired pizza.
