I will NEVER return. They ruined a special family evening; my youngest "child" is 16 and a lady, so this wasn't a family with young annoying children They weren't even busy, about half the tables were occupied. The staff made us feel as if we were an imposition.

I had a very disappointing experience at Vesuvio Bistro as far as my main coarse. I ordered the swordfish, and it came to the table smelling fishy, I wasn't sure if swordfish was just a pungent fish, this was my first time to eat it. After I was already half way through, my husband, who really knows food, tasted it... More

My girlfriend and I had made plans to dine here last time we were in Little Rock however, plans fell through and we had to return home early. A few weeks prior to this visit to Little Rock, my girlfriend had asked me where I wanted to have my birthday dinner at. This time, especially for the occasion, we made... More

Our first visit and it won't be our last. Everything from food to service was top notch. Antipasto, salads, entrees and desserts were specially prepared. There were four dinner specials besides a extensive menu to choose from. It was a high quality experience and well worth a 30 mile drive for us .

We are never disappointed with our yearly visit to Vesuvio on Christmas Eve when we visit little rock for the holidays. They have a new location near their old one which gives them more space and nicer space. They have a special pasta dish, Pasta Chitarra, which is finished off in a hollowed out Parmesan wheel. It is vegetarian but... More

Second time to Vesuvio, good service. The entrees were tasty but portions seemed small for the price.

This is my third time to review Vesuvio and everytime I leave the resturant, I always feel a need to write a review b/c let's face it...it really is that good!!

After visiting Italy last summer we came home hungry for gelato and Italian cuisine. We found Vesuvio Bistro offers the best. This is a great restaurant with excellent choices of dishes, very nice atmosphere, and attentive service.

My wife and I dined at Vesuvio for the first time last night and it was excellent. The wine selection is very good and the meal was excellent. She had pesto gnocchi and sea bass while I had home made pasta with muscles and clams. Fantastic! We can't wait to go back!

I was first a bit sceptical when Vesuvio's moved from their former location in the Best Western to Breckenridge Drive. However, after two recent visits, I am completely won over and consider the new location a big improvement of a restaurant that I've always been fond of. The renovations done are tasteful, the bar area is great, and the individual... More
