Now that we have discovered this place I am sure we will become regulars! The menu choices are great - something for everyone. Service was very welcoming and friendly. It's easy to park in the little car park almost opposite. Prices were reasonable. Cannot wait to go back again.

Il Vesuvio is our favourite restaurant. The delicious food is authentically Italian, beautifully cooked with the freshest ingredients and amazing value for money. We have been regulars for more than a year and we are treated like members of the family by Franco, Maria and all their lovely staff. The specials menu is imaginative and constantly changing, reflecting seasonal produce, and all portions are generous.The excellent wine list has wines to complement any meal. Just ask Franco or Angelo for their recommendation. If you want to eat well in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere this is the place to go. You won't be disappointed.

Not blingy, not flashy, not particularly smart. Just terrific well-priced food served by charming friendly genuine people in a cosy little restaurant from the mid-1990s. Great for families, great (on Valentine's eve) for couples. Very very happy to have found such a good local restaurant.

When you walk into Il Vesuvio's you're greeted like a long lost friend. The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The menu is varied but not pretentious and i have never eaten anything there that was not absolutely delicious. Try the Pollo alla crema di funghi and you know what I'm talking about. A simple pizza is just as fantastic, so save that for your next visit! I have recommended this place to plenty of people and all came back really grateful afterwards. Thanks, Maria and Franco!!!
