Italian
VesuviO originally opened Pizzeria Vesuvio’s oven doors on 25th October 1987 at 44-46 High Street, Clapham, Bedfordshire. Whilst we evolved from a humble 55 seater pizzeria into one of the largest and most successful Italian restaurants in Bedfordshire seating up to 220 patrons, the move to our brand new premises on 31st October 2006 meant we could offer our customers so much more. The popularity of our Clapham restaurant and our family commitment drove our achievements, with this success we purchased the land and built our new VesuviO with the addition of Banquet/Conference facilities in The Amalfi Suite.

We are open every day for Coffee, Lunch and Evening Meals from 11am-11pm. Every Sunday you can experience family dining VesuviO with our Sunday à la carte menu which hosts our famous £9.95 Sunday Roast as well as authentic Italian options - always something for everybody. Sunday Roasts are served 12pm to 6pm every Sunday. Our Sunday Supper Menu is available from 6pm onwards.

I took my wife for a surprise birthday gift, a lunch date. The service was good (we were worried due to the car event outside, but it was a non issue).

Service was welcoming and the food was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to go back.

We had three different main courses which were excellent and three different puddings which were out of this world. We hope to return soon. Abigail was particularly helpful.

As this was our first experience of eating inside for five months we were a little nervous, but the whole evening was fine, the staff were attentive and very helpful, the restaurant was clean and the tables were separated so you didn't feel that other diners were to close, the food was lovely, so overall our experience was a really good one.

The food was outstanding as ever.
The people in the venue had been spaced out well which made us feel safe as it was our first meal out post COVID.
The staff were professional.

Excellent food, service (and booking correspondence was over and above standard service) friendly, efficient and ever present without being overbearing. Restaurant, toilets and baby changing facilities were spotless. Easy to park. Current menu simple but tasty. Afternoon Tea just delicious! A thoroughly enjoyable experience and special family occasion. Thank you!

The location is good because it is in rural North Bedfordshire, so nice & quiet. The staff attended to our every whim. The food was excellent & good value for money as they are still carrying on with (Eat Out To Help Out), so you save money.

I took my three children (10,11 and 13) as a treat here as part of the Eat to help out and it was wonderful.
They treated us the same as “without the deal”.
The food was brilliant and service good. Will definitely be back.
You helped make a memorable end of lockdown back to school experience with my children so thanks

We would not return. Our overall experience was not good. We had to have an item removed from the bill as it was raw. We waited quite along time for the food. We asked for an extra bowl (for one of our children) it never arrived. We asked for the bill twice. One of the children's starters came with a substitute item (we were not made aware of this). Apparently the delivery was late. We should've been told as soon as we ordered it, instead they thought that they'd just substitute and not say anything hoping that we wouldn't notice. Also another small point (it wouldn't have bothered me had everything else been ok).....the table cloth was stained on arrival. We were the first table seated so not asif it was the only table available. Not the cheapest of restaurants so you don't really expect all of this.

Food and service good - restaurant lacks atmosphere - only a 3 star as I expect any restaurant to have standards - seeing people allowed in wearing dressing gowns is totally inappropriate regardless of who they are - have some standards
