“Always fantastic best restaurant we have been to hence returning regularly!”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Have been to Vesuvios at least 10 times if not more in last year it's always consistent and food is great! Always very busy but can understand why with location and great food staff have always been pleasant too . Will continue to go regularly !

“Great night out, recommended.”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

Visited on Sunday 16th September with my partner and sister. We ordered starters - Bruschetta Pomodoro, Butterflied King Prawn Bruschetta and the Meatball special; all were very tasty. We ordered a bottle of Prosecco and specifically asked for it to be cold, since we seem to find most bars and restaurants don't chill wine adequately. Steve the waiter arrived with our bottle which was already very cold as he'd assured, and he also went to the added effort of providing a chiller with extra ice; it's the extra effort that is so often missed, so we were very impressed. For mains, we had the Pizza Vulcano, Calzone con carne with fries, and Insalata Panzanella; all delicious.

Service and food was excellent, we wouldn't hesitate to return. Only slight niggle, the decor is tired and could use a refresh.

“Vesuvio on the Beach”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Vesuvio consistantly good, food & service. Pizzas are superb, try the Quattro Stagione my favourite, thin crispy base with plenty of quality topping. High quality main dishes also, good ambience for intimate dinner or groups. Open nearly all day and only 20 feet from a great sandy beach with views of the Purbecks and the Isle of Wight.

“Great meal”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Went to Vesuvio for first time in about five years on friday.
Food is excellent - beautifully presented, fabuliys portions; in fact almost too big. From steaks to pizzas very good quality. we were at a special birthday celebration and well looked after throughout.
Very good value for a beachside location
