Positives - Reasonably priced, accommodated us at short notice. Generous wine serving. All 3 courses were finished and enjoyed. Negatives - Needs double glazing, was cold sitting by the window. Service could have been a bit better, after waiting for a long period we had to ask to see desert menus. Overall 4/5 and would go back

Had a dinner here with my boyfriend back in July for my birthday and did it four course like the true Italians! Went to Venice in June 2016 and the food was exactly like the authentic Italian! True Italian restaurant with slightly aged decor that I can 100% look past because of the food and the prices and how wonderfully... More

Went here with a group of colleagues. Had a fantastic lunch from their set menu - everyone was delighted with their food and the services was great. Certainly nobody went hungry and I'll be visiting again very soon to sample the rest of the menu.

12 friends had a great Christmas get together at Vesuvius. Food was varied and excellent. Service always good here. Have been to this restaurant many times over the last few years and it is always worth returning. Enjoy

Business lunch at Vesuvius today, we ate off the set menu which was great value. Food was excellent, service attentive and friendly, what more could you ask for? We were the only customers yet it will be full tonight, it is a little out of the town centre but well worth the walk.

Me and my son were at Vesuvius and the restaurant are almost as a real Italian restaurant. The bruschetta pomodoro were perfect, the pasta was also verry good but the Tiramisu are not made in 100% genuine way so work on that one 😄. The environment are verry nice and service perfect !! So i wish the owner and staff... More

Great little find in Maidstone Town Centre. Fresh cooked Italian food to a great standard with a warm and relaxed welcome. Couples and families all together in an authentic Italian atmosphere... And it works!

I have been here on several occasions with my husband but this visit was lunchtime and it was a business meeting. It was quiet enough that you could have a good conversation, the staff were attentive and did not rush you. We all had something different from pasta, pizza and lasagna and all meals were lovely.
