I was on my lunch break and wasn't really in the mood for fast food like Wendy's. Italian sounded good and I figured that I couldn't go wrong here. I'm a fan of any type of turkey sandwich or grinder I should say being on New England. The mayo on the grinder was very good and everything was fresh. I... More

Used to be great pizza- the one I had recently was bland with an undercooked crust. Even the sauce was sparse and flavorless. What happened?

I've been going here for years. My boyfriend talks about his family going here for years but lately this pizza is going downhill. The usual crisp crust and light olive oil drizzle made this pizza spectacular. My last visit was nothing like that. Undercooked dough, globs of cheese that stayed mushy. No olive oil. This is a thin crust pizza,... More

If you want a pizza that is hand-tossed, made on the spot, no conveyor method, no pre-formed pizza shells, just old-fashioned goodness, then Vesuvio's is your kind of pizza restaurant. They are family owned and operated and have been in the South Side of Allentown for many years. They have an extensive Italian menu (all prepared in their own kitchen,... More

I grew up on the south side of Allentown and am old enough to remember when Vesuvio's was the south branch of the Allentown library! So, I have been going to Vesuvio's since day one (maybe 30 yrs now?!). Everybody seems to have different tastes when it comes to pizza. If you like yours on the thin side with plenty... More

I went there with my husband and daughter. We ordered a large pie to go along with several drinks. They ONLY accept cash, no matter how much you spend. Red flag there? If there had been a minimum, I would have gladly made sure I ordered more and met the requirements although there is a pizzeria on the next corner... More

Anytime our children are in town, we always have to get a pizza from here! It is not too saucy and we love the extra cheese. There is just something about Vesuvio's that is just better than any other pizza around. And, we love the wings too - they are just right!

This place, in my opinion, has some of the best pizza in the area. They are carryout or dine in only, they do not offer delivery. It is located in the Mountainvillem shopping center on 4th street. The pizza is always good, never tried anything but the pizza, and always do carryout. They get you in and get you out... More

We thoroughly enjoy their pizza and garlic knots. Not a great atmosphere, but its worth going.
