Waiter was wonderful , helping with wine selection which was very delicious. The bread is delicious, but I was disappointed with the veal parm and fried calamari (the latter of which the table shared and we left some behind so the feeling was mutual). I have had other menu selections here which I liked better so I am only speaking to the dinner I had last Friday night, not the entire menu . My friends and I had an enjoyable evening there as the wait staff does not rush you which we appreciated.

They were very busy tonight and yet we received impeccable service. The food was wonderful as always. The manager also checked on on us several times despite how busy it was. Everyone felt well taken care of and enjoyed the experience.

Worst customer service ever. Waited 90 minutes for my meal called 3 times and got same story. Spoke to manager. Did absolutely nothing. Last time and I'll tell everyone in neighborhood stay away and order from Gino's.

I wasn't expecting a place like this. I thought it would come with a good dating atmosphere. But it was not, it was, family like. Yet, that's me not doing enough homework on this. However, the food is GREAT!! This is yet the best Italian food compare to those high end Italian restaurants I'v been to in Manhattan. Every dish we ordered was perfect! I will definitely come back again!!!

My family and I made a reservation for 11. The table was waiting for us when we arrived. It was an amazing experience at Vesuvio's. The wait staff was kind and accommodating. The food was delicious. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. We are excited to return.

We had a bit of a wait getting our table because there were a few walk ins who were waiting for tables around the same time we made our reservation. Several parties were going on. However the staff were very accommodating. Served the kids bread and offered us drinks during our wait. When we got to our table the service was exceptional. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the experience. It was definitely worth the wait and will return again soon.
