“A great Italian restaurant in Little Rock”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We are never disappointed with our yearly visit to Vesuvio on Christmas Eve when we visit little rock for the holidays. They have a new location near their old one which gives them more space and nicer space. They have a special pasta dish, Pasta Chitarra, which is finished off in a hollowed out Parmesan wheel. It is vegetarian but you can order with a side of grilled chicken or shrimp, which i always do. This is not in the online menu, so ask for it! Service was impeccable.

“Good food, small portions”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Second time to Vesuvio, good service. The entrees were tasty but portions seemed small for the price.

“Vesuvio needs to be #1 on tripadvisor”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

This is my third time to review Vesuvio and everytime I leave the resturant, I always feel a need to write a review b/c let's face it...it really is that good!! Tripadvisor lists the top five resturants in LR and Vesuvio is #5. I personally believe it beats out all of the competition by a landslide! The ones ahead of V are #1 Ashley's, #2 Cafe Bossa Nova, #3 Kiyens and #4 Whole Hog Cafe--really tripadvisor reviewers?!! Vesuvio is definately needs to be #1 on this list. The new resturant is tastefully decorated with a relaxing atmosphere, excellent service and of course delicious Italian meals. The fresh pastas at Vesuvios are so good, they literally melt in your mouth. I always enjoy dining here and enjoy the friendly wait staff. If you are visiting LR or you are a local, you are missing out if you don't dine at least once at Vesuvio!

“Great Italian food”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

After visiting Italy last summer we came home hungry for gelato and Italian cuisine. We found Vesuvio Bistro offers the best. This is a great restaurant with excellent choices of dishes, very nice atmosphere, and attentive service.

“Friendly service, great food!”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I dined at Vesuvio for the first time last night and it was excellent. The wine selection is very good and the meal was excellent. She had pesto gnocchi and sea bass while I had home made pasta with muscles and clams. Fantastic! We can't wait to go back!
