As per usual. The food, wine and service were fantastic. Everyone is so friendly. As authentic as you can be in the UK to be honest. Never had a bad meal at Il Vesuvio and always delighted when I go. Grazie, Il vesuvio!

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.
