It was just what we needed, really tasty and beautifully presented. Followed by hazelnut ice cream, delicious. Fair price for a great... More

Whittlesey was busy busy busy after the Straw Bear celebrations and the restaurant was still packed when we arrived at 20:00. Things were running smoothly though and our table was waiting for us. The service was polite and friendly and... More

on 14th December, 59 of my students & myself arrived (pre booked) at Vesuvio for a Christmas Social. I can't thank Maria & Pep enough for all the effort they put in, the food & wines were wonderful, served efficiently, hot & tasty. Everyone had a lovely evening, it seemed to come to a close all too soon, but great... More

Not as good as it used to be. Food is still Ok, but the wine is not as good as it was. House wine is mediocre and the so called home made apple pie is shop bought with no sultanas and no spice. Great shame this was my favourite eating place by far.

Returned while visiting a year after discovering Vesuvio. Great food a warm welcome and well looked after. Already planning next year's trip looks like the favourite again. Soup Pasta and Steaks delicious and really good value.

We went to the vesuvio for my daughters 40th,good food and friendly service.if anything the starters were too filling,next time my wife and I will share. The staff happily brought our birthday cake to the table and served up slices and even gave us foil packs to take some cake home,nothing was too much trouble and great value.
