It's always a nice place for a special occasion. My family enjoys coming as a delicious place to enjoy. We like the extra attention from the wait staff. I was a little early meeting my family, and I had a nice visit with the receptionist. The food is always exceptional. My grandson is a college student and is used to eating at places where the food is cheaper, so he really gets a kick out of the elegance of your restaurant.
As always, our time at Vesuvio was wonderful and filled with fine food, great music and expert service. While their Spaghetti Chitara will always be my favorite, the rest of the menu is equally superb.
Food was very good. Ambiance was a little loud with the piano. Server was very nice, personable and great service. There was a glitch with one entree and it was the guy who was paying. Unfortunately he said we would not return. This was after Capeo and Bruno's. I suggested Vesuvios. They liked the food but have other standards.
My wife and I ordered steaks. She ordered the filet medium and I ordered the ribeye medium as well. The ribeye came out well-done and the filet rare. I would have expected much better for $40 per steak. If we go back we will stick with what they do best - pasta.
My daughter and I dined at Vesuvio based on Open Table reviews. We were very pleased with the food, attentiveness of the staff and overall pleasant dining experience. The restaurant was not on the beaten path, which probably is a good thing. It's definitely a hidden treasure!
