The pizza wasn’t cooked all the way through. The seafood pasta was okay but way too garlicy and overcooked. The service is friendly but the food isn’t worth a visit.

Stopped by after seeing a show in the Amphitheater ... nice entrees and salads. The mains took forever to arrive ... 45 minutes or more. A real pity because otherwise I would have given this place 5 stars!

Named after the famous volcano in Naples, le Vesuvio offers a full menu of exquisite Italian cuisine. The premium quality of food includes piping-hot pizzas from an authentic wood-fired oven. As any self-respecting Italian will attest, the only way that one of the world's most renowned and historic 'fast foods' should be cooked is in the wood-fired method. This delivers a pizza which in terms of taste and authenticity puts the global pizza chains to shame! All of le Vesuvio's cuisine basics are freshly prepared using authentic Italian ingredients to provide a true Italian taste. Its unique location overlooking the beach, and adjacent to the Katara amphitheater, gives le Vesuvio an enviable location from which to enjoy the rustic Mediterranean fare which a great pizza often provides! PLEASE NOTE 5:00PM - 6:00PM, serving pizza menu only
