This is the first Italian restaurant in memory that does not have some pasta dishes with a meat sauce. I tried the lasagna (meatless) and was happy with the presentation. I did order a side of meatballs and was glad I did. The meatballs while on the menu only as a side dish were fantastic. They should be on the... More

Poor italian food. Over priced in Lenox, MA. Small portions. No vegetable included with you meal. Would not recommend this place.

Ate here the other night before attending a performance at Tanglewood. The service from our waiter was top notch. We ordered main courses, which came with a choice of soup or salad, and a choice of sides: mashed potatoes (which seemed an odd choice for an Italian meal) pasta, or polenta. Overall, the prices were pretty reasonable.

If I could give half stars Vesuvio would have 3.5 The big positive is that the main courses and most apps are typically excellent. The chicken saltimbocca and the veal piccata were especially delicious. Tender with great sauces that compliment the dish. The downsides are the service (hit and miss) and the side pastas (almost always a miss). On our... More

The food and the service were fantastic. The atmosphere was good. I had veal parmigiano which was to die for but the amount of pasta was small for $25.00 a little more pasta would of been nice.

Large group descended on this place. We had a reservation. They were very accommodating. If you like veal you will love this place. 22 meals were eaten here and not one was bad. We were too full to try dessert. Definitely recommend.

We took my mom here to celebrate her upcoming 86th birthday. Our waiter Kellen made us feel comfortable the second he greeted us and was extremely knowledgable about the menu. He was spot on with the red wine he suggested which paired nicely with my entree. The calamari was the perfect appetizer. Plenty for the 3 of us to share... More

An old friend and I went here for dinner last night and it was such an enjoyable, relaxing night. We began with drinks (Italian beers-I am not a wine drinker, though the wine menu is extensive). We chose Ancini for an appetizer which was amazing! Light and crisp on the outside, soft and cheesy but not too much so on... More

My wife and I had dinner here last night. One of the best Italian joints I have ever eaten at. Bread, salad and wine were on point. I had the Veal parmigiano and my wife had lasagna. From presentation to taste, everything was exceptional. Not to mention the service was great, as a younger couple we don't normally get that... More
