“Great food, service is lacking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

We had been there before but not in a couple of years. This time we had a family outing with ten people.

The food is terrific. Quality and portion sizes are just fine.

But it was almost as if they had never had a large party there before. Everything about the service was spotty. They would fill some of the water glasses, but not all. The server took the order for eight of the ten people but ran off when here beeper blinked at her and didn't finish taking our orders for another five minutes!.

Food came out in a couple of waves.

Fact is that everyone enjoyed their meal, but I am still scratching my head about the service.
Value was excellent.

“Great Italian Restaurant in Cranston”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Where there are many Italian restaurants, Vesuvio's stands out. They serve warm bread right out of the oven and food that is freshly cooked. I had Chicken Franchese and it was delicious. My husband had Veal Parmagiana. Real Veal lightly cooked with just enough cheese. On Wednesday they have a special that includes salad, dessert and coffee for $16.95. Highly recommended!!!

“Just o.k.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

Average food at above average prices. Food portions could have been bigger for what we paid. Bread was very good and the meals do come with a Salad and a side dish. Service was also good and wine and cocktail prices were average. With all the wonderful Italian places to eat locally I can think of a lot of other options for the price.

“Good food, long wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

The food was great. I ordered the veil parmigiana. It came with 3 nice slices of veil, pasta, and salad. Very good food and nice atmosphere. The food took very long to come. They were busy, but i waited around an hour for the food to come. Overall, the food was worth the wait.

“Only restaurant left in RI reasonably priced and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

I have been many times and never disappointed. Last week my cousin and I went for lunch, my entree with a huge salad and hot fresh bread was 8.95. The chicken Francais was delicious. My cousin had a large Ceasar salad with freshly grilled chicken. The restaurant was clean and the bathroom meticulous. It's an Italian restaurant. I was disturbed by the previous reviewer about mushrooms. "Hen of the Woods" or "Signorina" is a unique mushroom, unmistakable for anything else which is a delacacy savored by many. Obviously this person is misinformed. It's fresh, good quality, delicious food at a reasonable price. I'm going again for New Years Eve.
