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

On the day Ciro was there most of the day making sure everything ran smoothy. We had a 4 course meal and evening buffet and everyone was... More

Having been a customer of the restaurant for many years, and attended numerous car shows Ciro and the team put on throughout the year, I was more than a little excited about their first car related film screening. Picture this - muscle cars, America buffet, VIP seating, Frank Bullitt on the big screen - yep it was always going to... More
