Went to Vesuvius last week for dinner. We had a sharing platter for starters, if we knew how big this was we needn't have ordered a main meal. The platter was fab, lovely meats, pickles, olives etc.

I ordered the Risotto for main, this can sometimes be a let down - but again this was very flavoursome and just the right consistency.

The décor was very poor and would much prefer the lighting to be more softer.

Service was very good.

Overall, would definitely come here again.

My family and I have eaten at this restaurant on numerous occasions, ranging from lunches, romantic meals to having a ruby anniversary party there in the evening.
The food is well proportioned and extremely tasty, they'll even cater for your children and make them feel especially welcome.
The staff are polite and friendly and Babara and her brother who are joint owners make you feel like family making you want to come back for more.
The prices are reasonable and you feel like you've had an expensive night out without denting your pocket.

Vesuvius is a great restaurant, with fantastic atmosphere for families. It is reasonably priced, and the food is just fantastic.I visited Zizzi's a few weeks ago, and it didn't compare, Vesuvius wins by a long shot! I recommend this restaurant a lot, and would happily go here again

we have eaten here twice and both tiimes ..excellent !! Very buzzy and the food is not run of the mill restaurant "chain" dishes, it has a home cooked feel, the owners are hands on and very enthusiastic about there business and their food
They have opened in a very unfashionable part of town , on the one way system, but it was packed both tiimes, so people will be drawn by good food and not just the location. Give it a try because Maidstone needs restaurants like this
