We really enjoyed our dinners at this quaint Italian restaurant! I am Italian and am very particular about Italian dishes. Both my husband and I had excellent meals!! The atmosphere was very nice as well. Prices were reasonable.

I went light for dinner; antipasto and caprese salad with a glass of white wine. This is pretty simple fare, and should have been easy to rate a 4, but... I expect more than 3 slices of the salami for the meat part of the antipasto (add some prosciutto maybe) and a couple of chunks of parmesan cheese would have... More

There were 8 of us there of various ages. I say that because 5 of us ordered something a little different than was on the menu. The waitress didn't even write our orders down and everything came out perfect. Yes, the side salads are small, but we didn't order salads as mains. We ordered pasta and such and the portions...

Although the atmosphere is very nice what followed was disappointing. The salad is very small as I had seen this as a comment on other reviews but was surprised to see this was so. They need to look at this as it is a problem. The service was extremely slow as we waited 45 minutes after the salad was served... More

My wife and I had the most pleasant of Italian dining. The ravioli's were out of this world, and the wait staff were awesome.

My family and I have been frequenting Trattoria il Vesuvio for many years now and have found the food outstanding. As busy as they are, they always accommodate everyone's needs as best they can. The dishes, and I can probably say I've had most of the dishes on the menu are excellent. The portions are perfect; neither too large or... More

My wife and I both ordered variations of chicken. The side salad was a small child's handful of lettuce. The pasta side tasted like it was out of a box. No vegetables came with the main course. The chicken was obviously processed with a little sauce thrown on. Italian in name only.

I loved this place and Its quite a great place if your looking for something slightly fancy. Food is fantastic and I notice some reviews are alittle overly critical. It's a great place that local people love. If you want a fancy Italian mean this and mazzeos and I prefer this over mazzeos the tourist trap. It has been always... More

Ok, I admit it I can be a snob about Italian food - all I ask is that it's tasty and uses garlic. I got neither here - the best thing I can say about this place was that the vinaigrette on the salad was good. I had the veal breast stuff with spinach and cheese - not sure if... More

We(4 people)visited Trattoria II Vesuvio last night. We often visit the Berkshires(during the summer. We are there almost every other week and visit during the rest of the year as we live only an hour away). We always eat lunch and/or dinner during our visits. This was our first visit to this restaurant and will be our last. I often... More
