Description: Traditional Southern Italian Restaurant offering authentic Italian food, with specifically sourced Italian ingredients.Pasta, pizza, seafood, meat (including veal and our famous meatballs), desserts and coffee all available to eat in or take away. Our food is cooked fresh and express, so do take it into considerations when yo are 1 of 70-80 guests trying to eat on a Saturday night.

Had heard a lot about this restaurant and read the trip advisor reports. We have holidayed in southern Italy a few times and we were doubtful whether the food would live up to the reviews...... Well amazingly I am glad to say it did!! Lovely menu reasonable prices, family run proper Italian restaurant.... In Maidstone!! I cannot believe it!! Calamari to start, and all our mains were great. The ravioli on special, and the seafood risotto, and the pizza all so good. Likewise for the desserts. Long may it last. I look forward to working my way through the whole menu. Staff were super friendly too. Welcome to Maidstone!!

I ate at this restaurant with a good friend Friday night and we were welcomed by a lovely lady who said we could sit wherever we liked. The food was superb, we had shared a starter and pudding. The main courses we had were veal, one cooked with a creamy wine and mushroom sauce, the other with a lemon sauce, this was served with rosemary roasted potatoes and a side salad. We will definitely come back and recommend to other friends.

Went this restaurant last week , it was not looks busy. The day we went is Wednesday there was another table of 2. We went to table and it was almost 10 minutes nobody ask for a drink. Than we called them for a drink and its happen again when we want to palace our order. So basically really we didn't enjoy the service and food was average .

The food and service here is outstanding, proper cooking of the finest order served with without gimmicks like other restaurants seem to. Vesuvius let the quality of their ingredients and cooking do the talking and don't need to hide behind fancy plates, and ridiculous arty farty nonsense. I'm glad this resturant is out the way from the other restaurants in town as its special and is frequented by like minded people who want the best food and service in a totally relaxed and friendly environment.
