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

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.

Recently visited here for a family members birthday after being recommended to visit by a few people at work. I wanted to try more local independent restaurants rather than the larger chains and this one did not disappoint! The staff were very friendly, great atmosphere in the restaurant and the food was amazing! The menu was really big with a... More

It makes a nice difference to go to an Italian restaurant in Maidstone that is actually run by Italians (not other Europeans masquerading as Italians). Everything on the menu is delicious and authentic. If you enjoy Italian food and hospitality, you really must try this place for yourselves.

Came here with family, we've been to the Tunbridge Wells restaurant many times and Maidstone's Vesuvius is just as brilliant, fantastic choice of food in decent sized portions ( enough for us all to put some on my daughters plate) and brilliantly cooked, service was swift and efficient. A lovely time was had by all of us and look forward... More
