Extremely good staff, awesome food, drinks are fairly limited and quite expensive, loads of parking, unfortunately there is no outside area which is a shame

Very disappointing experience, the only reason I gave it 2 out of 5 is because the staff tried hard. We had two roasts, spaghetti and a pizza. The roast lamb was grey, not just over done but it looks off so I sent it back and got the chicken which was dry. The potatoes were soft and dry but not... More

We had previously been to the indoor surfing activity at the nearby Twinwoods activity centre and passed by this restaurant when looking for somewhere to have lunch. The restaurant was empty apart from one other table. When we ordered though, we were the only ones in the restaurant! We ordered the antipasto dish. It was OK. Value very good but... More

We ate in the main restaurant and were disappointed We found it very noisy. The food was average. It may be better in the function room used for special occasions. Plenty of parking.

Have been before but last visit for a pizza and green salad was not good. Pizza was undercooked and salad was full of water and tasteless. Would think twice about going again.

We organised for my daughters Christening party to go to VesuviO's. Had a lovely time and everyone commented on how nice the food and atmosphere was. The staff were always on hand and very attentive to everybody. I cannot thank Ciro enough for his help and everything that he organised for us. We had the private function room 'The Pompeii... More

First visit last night and not disappointed. Food was excellent, restaurant area a tad clinical, needs an Italian set, it was more like a conference lay out.

Well what can we say! What an amazing, fantastic day/night we had! Right from the very beginning when we discussed and booked The Sharnbrook Hotel with Ciro the customer service and fine details were outstanding. Ciro and his team were extremely attentive throughout the near 18mnths of planning, always available to help with any questions we had. His team is... More

We attended the VersuviO Restaurant and Bar recently as guests at our Nephew's wedding. From the minute we arrived at lunchtime until we left at night the food and service received from Ciro and his competent staff was excellent. We all enjoyed a three course meal in the afternoon and a plentiful buffet during the evening. Ciro was in attendance... More
