Not many places around the country make pizza as good as I used to eat back home in Brooklyn, but this pleasant little shop does. Two slices of plain cheese and I'm a happy man.

This has been one of our go to neighbor hood pizza places for years, however, we can't keep hoping it will be better next time! I was disappointed when again they forgot the Syrian bread with our salads. When I called to question it, the employee said "oh we ran out of it" well tell me that when I order!... More

I love the creative sandwiches named after Gods! We all leave happy and ingredients are so darn tasty. One sandwich is often shared, or better still, two and we share half of each!

Pizza is decent, as well as other dishes. I have eaten here a few times. To be honest not too memorable. I do not have the urge or want to eat there too often.

Pizza is almost as good a Italy! Now there are two locations both in good locations-downtown Marblehead and in Vinnin Square Salem/Swampscott. Plenty of parking for both. We usually take out, but have eaten in at both restaurants. Salem/Swampscott has a lot more seating.

We have tried every pizza venue in town, and this seems consistently to be the best. A bit higher than the others but the quality is worth it. They also have excellent sandwiches.

The sandwiches are all great. The pizzas and salads are also great. The prices are a little high but the quality makes it worth it.

If you are looking for gourmet pizza, please be sure to bring a full wallet. The pizza is well made, but is 40% more expensive than the other local pizza joints

The pizza at Cafe Vesuvius is excellent. Until they built one closer to where we live, we were getting our pizza almost every Friday here.
