The chef is a master. Pizza as it was intended. Thin powdery crust, beautiful passata, well balanced acidity, good cheeses and if you ask nicely they'll add zuccini for £1. Spectacular!

There's a small pay-and-display car park just 2-3 minutes walk from Il Vesuvio. It's called Stone Street car park, with the entrance on Camden Road.
