For an Italian living in Dublin, "Al Vesuvio" is absolutely one of my favorite choices when I am craving for pizza. The owner and his staff are very attentive and customer focused, the menu for pizzas is very extensive, I have tried many of them and they are really delicious!"Al Vesuvio" has also a good selection of wines and you can enjoy your meal in a nice and friendly atmosphere that reminds of the Italian "trattoria" style. Not to forget prices are reasonable! Thanks for providing this outstanding service, it is always a pleasure to come back to this restaurant!

Visited this restaurant for a family celebration dinner for 6 adults and three children, 9y/o, 6y/o and 3y/o.
This restaurant is hidden away in a little square between Dame Street and Temple Bar that even local Dubliners might not find. It is Italian cuisine with an extensive menu.
everything about the restaurant is positive from the very friendly staff to the high quality of food including pizzas and pastas. It is very child friendly.

Me and my husband are on our honeymoon in Dublin for 4 days. We went into Al Vesuvio around 1pm as had seen the lunch special menu while walking through temple bar. We were the first customers of the day but they did gain more customers while we were there. Decor is quirky, tables make the restaurant feel intimate and female waitress was so friendly and helpful, she couldn't do enough for us. We had the prawns in spicy tomato sauce and I had the penne with mushroom and chicken and my husband the pepperoni pizza. The food was absolutely delicious and I would go agin for this meal again and again. To make it even better we got our lunch deal and drinks for under €30 so we were very happy with our experience and would advise anyone to go and try it. Great food, relaxed environment, fantastic staff and decent price we could not argue.

Terrific restaurant located in the centre of Dublin with a quirky, Italian feel to it.

Great menu, top service and lovely wine. Gave it 4 stars because it was so hot in there - we skipped pudding because it was unbearable once we finished our mains.

Would definitely recommend.
