Not very busy on the Saturday after Thanksgiving so we could take our time and talk and have fun. Lori was our waitress and she got everything right even suggesting we spilt our plate in the kitchen. The portions were very big. I took half of my half plate of chicken volcanello home and made another meal of it. Most... More

A friend and I went here this past Tuesday.

As for the appetizers we had squash flower fried lightly, and stuffed mushrooms with sausage. The stuffed mushrooms... More

I was introduced to Vesuvio a year ago by a good friend and have dined there at least 10 times since. I've always been happy with it. In fact, I've told several friends about it. After tonight, not only will I never go back there, but I am going to make it my mission to call every one of my... More

Sauce is one of the best I've tasted in a restaurant. Eggplant parm was sliced thin and stacked high. Pasta was cooked to perfection and their own honey, lime dressing on salad was great. Waitresses were efficient and Loriwas very accomodating! Will be back!

We were out to celebrate a retirement lunch party with friends, and it was a tuesday where many restaurants are not open till 4pm. We went to Vesuvios having never been there before and were pleasantly surprised. Their pasta sauce is excellent and we were treated to the delicacy of fried squash flowers in season as an appetizer that you... More

I've passed by Vesuvio's dozens of times without stopping in so I decided to change that. When you enter you'll find the space nice and open with a bar area on your right. I was by myself and they apparently seat singles in the bar if at all possible. That was okay. My server was quick with water and a... More

Sunday afternoon at 1:40. Writing on door states that they open at 1. TWO...OPEN signs illuminated. After getting two children and three adults out of the car at the front of the restaurant we were greeted at the curb by a restaurant employee who advised us they don't open until 2. Really? For 20 minutes? When asked about the signs... More

Went here last night for dinner, have been here a few other times and not much has changed. The service was slow, the food routine Italian and the prices fair for what was served. Probably won't be back for awhile, if at all.
