Had booked a table for 2 at Vesuvio's for 19.30, walked in at around 19.15 and it was packed out except for a small table of which one side the seat was under the stairs and the other side had no chair at all. A male member of staff said he'd find us a chair but my partner said we would not be sitting there and ending up with a crooked neck, due to the slant of where the table was located.

A male on the table further down nearest the kitchen said were going in a moment, but why should someone have to leave for us to be able to sit down with a booked table, the table he was giving up was out of the atmosphere of the other tables so we walked out. One of the male staff members asked if we would be back and we replied yes but we never went back.

I would have expected this perhaps if we hadn't of booked a table but as we did book a table why were we only saved one under the stairs and with only 1 chair? I know we were 10-15 mins early but you'd have thought they would have saved a table for us as we booked on Thursday night and not like 1 hour before we went.

...... and this was better than the first! We arrived early (due to young grandson) without previously booking and was shown to our table. Please to see that on this occassion, the candle tea lights holders actually had candles in and were lit!!

The meal itself was great and even the fussy eater grandson managed to put away most of the garlic bread, his pizza and a pudding!

Also glad to see that Tiramisu was also on the menu and well worth a 2nd visit for that.

Now have to go again to qualify for our free bottle of wine - What a chore!!!

Me & a few girls went to Vesuvio's on a Friday night and were pleased to see that they had half price starters & main courses.
We were met by a lovely lady who after showing us to our table, took our coats & asked if we would like to order drinks....we were made to feel comfy straight away.
We each chose a different starter from garlic mushrooms, black pudding, mussels with chilli and a lovely prawn dish. All our plates were clean!!
There was also a great choice for main courses but most of the girls went for the chicken dishes....chicken in cream and wine and also the chicken dish cooked in cream & stilton. The potatoes & veg that came with the meal were very tasty too, and again the plates were clean.
After our meal we indulged ourselves in a Tia Maria coffee which was a lovely end to the evening & you could taste the kick of the Tia Maria!!!
We all enjoyed ourselves that much we have booked for our Christmas night out there. Looking forward to our next time, thanks Vesuvio and all who work so hard x

A small friendly ristorante with a good menu and reasonable prices.
A loyalty card is available for returning customers -a free bottle of wine on your third visit for instance, and very drinkable it was too!
