The best and certainly the biggest Pizza we have ever tasted. Great service with friendly and efficient staff. Not a huge menu but apart from Pizzas a choice of pasta dishes ,fish and salads . The modules were good and the lasagne was tasty and creamy.

We go to Menton once or twice a year and always eat at Vesuvio - However what we have learnt by trial and error is the following - Eat under the canopy as it can get very hot inside especially when it is busy - The staff can be taciturn and unfriendly if you are rude to them, however be friendly and they can be very entertaining and add to the overall experience. We went for New Years Eve and in spite of a "no booking" policy having asked earlier there was a table waiting and we had a throughly enjoyable night. Food is consistent and we tend to stick to pizza. Go early to make sure of a table straight away and tips do work and get to know them. We are recognised when we go and this always helps, many people that live in Menton go there too.

I should just endorse the previous review - my feeling is that the staff don't really care about you unless you make it obvious a big tip is coming their way. The food was passable but expensive for what is in large part flour and water.

We were ignored by the waiting staff, and when we were served eventually, one of our dishes was given to someone ordering the same dish at an adjacent table. When we had the cheek to raise this, the waiter reacted as if we were in the wrong.

The setting is nice on a warm summer evening - the restaurant has outside tables on a 'square', and a strolling player pays regular visits to add to the ambience.

We concur with the previous reviewer as it relates to service. I can tolerate slow service but not rude service. Unfortunately this is more the norm then the exception in the area. The pizza on the other hand is pretty good. We had the Reine and the Rucola pizza which are in the 12 to 13 eu range. The setting is in a touristy part of town and a great place to people watch. I’d say of the pizza places we tried in Menton this is one of the better ones. You just need to be tolerant of the non-existent and rude service.
