We stayed in Royal Turnbridge Wells on our way back to The Netherlands. We were so fortunate to choose Il Vesuvio for our dinner. It was on a Saturday evening and the restaurant was very busy. Nevertheless we were received very friendly and got the last table that was not reserved. The food was fantastic and we were recommended an... More

I am Italian and I have been there for a dinner. I ordered for strter the parmigiana and it was frozen and microwaved. unbelivable and expensive! Pizzas was poor and not so tasty but honestly much better than the pizzas that you can have in the city. The worst thing was the staff that every 2 minutes was checking if... More

As soon you get in this place it feels straight away like you're in a restaurant in Italia! The food it's amazing, with the proper ingredients and flavours... The hospitality is of a real Italian family, very friendly and welcoming. As an Italian from south Italy and half British I recommend this place to everyone who would like a really... More

Our visit was lovely from beginning to end.. nice table by the window. Huge platter for starter with so many different things to pick at - mixed main courses, which we all agreed were delicious. Only 2 of us could manage puds. The service was attentive, and we received everything we needed throughout the eve. The bill was more than... More

Quaint family run Italian restaurant. Real homemade food, good atmosphere. We visited on a Sunday night and it was fully booked, we had walked past it on the previous night and it was the same which we took as good sign and were not disappointed. Be prepared to spend a bit more if you choose Franco's favourite wine selection.

I am a vegetarian, Maria, Franco and all the staff are more than happy for me to pick something off of the menu and adapt it for me to eat. Some of group and never... More

A lovely restaurant, family run, efficient and friendly. The starters were huge, so no room for pudding. A lovely choice of fine Italian pizzas, pastas, fish and meat dishes. It appears to often be fully booked on a Saturday night, which speaks volumes about how good the place is. Can't fault it. Fabulous!
