I cannot recommend this resturant more highly. What a fabulous way to spend News Years Eve. Excellent authentic food, great wecome and staffed by talented brilliant people.

A must for everyone you cannot find a better place to eat at any time, but the expericne on News Years Eve was amazing. Well done to Maria and her family.


Just fab..... Cannot wait to return and will certainly be making a reservation for New Years Eve again.

“Brilliant New Year's Eve”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

We have been to Vesuvio on numerous occasions; and decided to go with a friend for a New Year's Eve meal. What an absolutely fantastic evening. Maria and Peppe certainly made it a night to remember. The food and service was brilliant as usual but what made this night special was the atmosphere that Maria and her staff created. We sat on a long table with people we didn't know, but due to the wonderful ambience it was impossible not to get to know these people and at the end of the night genuinely wish them very best wishes for 2013. Giovanni played in the "background". I say in the background loosely as everytime he played another wonderful italian song the whole restaurant erupted in singing and dancing. If it wasn't for the miserable weather outside you would have thought you were in southern Italy. Thank you Maria, Peppe and staff for making our New Year's Eve a night to remember.

“good evening food at lunchtime prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2012

Lunchtime special is £8.99 for pizza/salad/pasta + side dish + small drink. But we had full 3-course a la carte = large starters mozzarella/tomato/rocket and calamari (tender) + salad; mains = 1. meatballs (3 enormous beef/pork) + tomato sauced pasta, 2. goat cheese & spinach stuffed chicken breast + roast new potatoes (15!). Tiramisu in ramekin + marsala, lemon sorbet made on premises. Real strong espresso. £24 per person including drinks & tip. Go with an appetite. This family restaurant has lifted Whittlesey out of fenland gloom - may they prosper.

“Little Italy in The Fens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

Really loved this place the food is authentic italian and the chef is brilliant .The staff are outgoing and friendly and when we visited there were only a few people in but they made us feel very welcome. The menu is a little pricey but they can cater for lager parties Im sure this will be a little gem in the future as they do authentic italian takeaway pizza too. Only thing on my visit the placemats were a little new and slippy so as I was cutting my food the plate did tend to move about. This place is definately one to check out.
