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.
They had a pianist playing in the bar area the evening we dined. He was excellent and really made the experience special.
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.
Vesuvio is great food. Quiet with good ambience. Service is always pleasant.
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.
Atmosphere, Food quality and service were great! First time here and it was what I hoped for and expected
We've been to Vesuvio's many times and have never been disappointed. The food and service are both outstanding. Try the spaghetti chitary. It is wonderful.
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!
A quiet night, but all was excellent! Jacob or server was awesome, as was our meal. A great evening!
I was at the restaurant while on a business trip and went with a coworker and my wife.
I had a pasta dish with mushrooms that was tossed and coated inside of a huge wheel of parm cheese! Excellent! Wife had the lobster ravioli, she loved it.
Chefs choice meat and cheese plate was very good also. I would highly recommend this place to anyone interested in a wonderful meal with great service and atmosphere!
Great location in Little Rock. Great food and service. Ask for Rajan. * rating.
Very intimate a little pricey depending on what your order but worth paying a little extra for.
We took my parents here for our anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and Robbie took care of us as usual.
Our first time to this lovely restaurant after several friends recommended it. We will definitely be back!
We were disappointed in the service and the quality of the food. Unfortunately, it was much better when located in The Burgundy Hotel. I don't know if this means the chef has changed or what happened. This is our second time to give it a try, and neither time did we feel we had an above average experience with service or food.
Ate at Vesuvio on a Sunday evening with two friends. Although the service was pleasant the food was very disappointing for all of us. Started with a meat and cheese plate for the table. It was incredibly mundane, three cheeses and three meats...no accoutrements and a very bland choice of cheeses and poor choice of meats($30). I had a swordfish dish, served on uncooked spinach leaves, which was the worst I have ever had. It actually tasted more like chicken, plus it was not like any swordfish I have ever been served...two flat slices that were dried out..not even like a moist steak. One friend had a manicotti dish was two small pieces for $18. The other friend had a special of the day which was a very small piece of fish that had almost no taste...for $34.
Vesuvio Bistro was way over priced and underwhelming.
Absolutely wonderful from all aspects. Would highly recommend for a great relaxing evening. Great service, great drinks, a wine list that should please everyone. Food was fantastic! Prices are very reasonable. We will be back.
Service was great. Food was worth the price which was actually lower than what I expected.
First let me say that the piano player was excellent! For me that was the best part. My wife had the manicotti which she said was very good. I had the rack of lamb which was supposed to come with mashed potatoes and asparagus BUT when I asked if the dish had any flour in it the waiter told me that the mashed potatoes contained flour . Since I am wheat sensitive they offered me a double order of asparagus--that turned out to be six stalks--hmmm. The lamb was supposed to be medium rare but about half of it was VERY rare so be advised that if you want medium rare better ask for medium and if you ask for rare you will not have to wait for it to be cooked.
The place is a bit expensive--one shared salad, one glass of house wine, one manicotti, one rack of lamb with six asparagus stalks--$76.00 before tip. I would say stick with the pasta dishes if you are not wheat sensitive and enjoy the piano player.
