Terrible service. Wilted salad. Cold cannelloni. Flavorless spaghetti bolognese. Wow. This was a first time for us at Vesuvio Bistro. We read a Soirée article from 18 months ago that gave it high marks for gluten free dining, staying that there was a gluten free...More

The restaurant has become more casual and laid back. Large screen TVs, pizza and craft beers have been added but they kept their special salads and Italian dishes. Staff always nice and food consistently good! One of my favorite places for steak!

The classy upscale Italian spot that we've all come to love over the past many years just recently went an overhaul. Menu revamped, prices lowered, waiters in t-shirts, lights up, very informal. Rather than a fancy night out, our family dinner felt like going to...More
