We came in on a Friday night during an insane rain, the restaurant was completely empty and we came in and were asked if we had reservations. Weird.. Food was average with Manhattan prices and service was just ok.

First visit here after 16 month pandemic hiatus. In the past, Vesuvios was our favorite restaurant in the area. First off, the service was terrible. We were ignored the whole time. We ordered a pasta dish and asked for parmesan which never came. The special,...a pasta dish with meat sauce was watery and more like soup. No one asked us if we wanted a drink; there was no spoon to go with the pasta dish. Even allowing for the hard times which have befallen such an establishment, there is no excuse for this poor performance on so many levels.More

Vesuvio's has been around for years and a lot of regulars talk about "the new owners". I have to say, new owners have revitalized the place. Dinner is always good, servers are great, prices are fair. What else could you want. Lindsey and Amanda are...friendly and attentive. The gems on the menu are the pork with peppers (it's a little spicy) and any of the home made desserts. Chicken Parm is a family favorite, and pastas are good. Portions are good too. The veggie sides are really good too.More

Vesuvio Restaurant (Vesuvio) is a friends and family restaurant specializing in Italian cuisine. Established in 1977, the privately owned eatery serves soup, salad, pasta, fish, chicken, lobster, shrimp, veal, pork, and steak. It also offers two vegetarian dishes and a wide selection of scrumptious desserts....All meals at Vesuvio are prepared fresh and gluten free pasta is available upon request. Joe Baglio, the proprietor, developed his knowledge and expertise of the restaurant business working in hotel restaurants and cruise ships. Neat! I opted for the “bow tie pasta” dish (pesto, shrimp, sun dried tomatoes, and shredded parmigiana) for $23, and it was fantastic. It came with a house salad. No regrets! Fun Fact: During the summer months, Vesuvio only uses locally grown and organic vegetables. Awesome! Nestled in the northern section of the Catskill Mountains, look for Vesuvio at 49 Country Road 65 in the New York State community of Hensonville. It is open for dinner from 4:00 in the afternoon (3:00 in the afternoon on Sundays) until 10:00 at night. Call ahead and make a table reservation to avoid disappointment. We did not call ahead, and so ate at the bar. Steve, the bartender, took very good care of us. Note that Vesuvio also caters weddings, anniversaries, parties, and banquets. The facility can also host private gatherings of up to 160 people. Awesome! Parking and WiFi are both available at no cost. Vesuvio also offers a coat check service for a nominal fee.More

In the small hamlet of Hensonville NY in the northern parts of the Catskill Mountains right next to the town of Windham and near Hunter NY is Vesuvio. A true gem of the Catskills. Chef Apollo does everything from authentic Italian dishes, whole lobsters, to...the catch of the day. Nick the waiter and the whole staff are great. There's a rustic, welcome home atmosphere about the place. I believe they're open 7 days a week. Call for lunch or dinner reservations. Reasonably priced and the portions are huge. If your in the area, give it a try. You won't be disappointed.More

We dined here on the recommendation of the proprietor of our hotel and we weren’t disappointed! Made to feel very welcome, very personal service from the friendly staff, this place has a great atmosphere. We had been told the Rigatoni with Sunday Gravy was good,...so we all opted for that. Served hot fresh bread and salad to start. The main was delicious - sausage, pulled pork, meatballs, ricotta and fresh basil in homemade tomato sauce. My photograph does not do it justice. Fabulous restaurant with delicious food - if we are in the area again we will definitely eat here again!More

We stopped for dinner and the place is in disrepair. Maybe they are the process of rebuilding. The staff was extremely rude and seemed to enjoy making travelers feel unwelcome. Do yourself a favor and skip this joint.
