Le Vesuvio

Time Out Says

Le Vesuvio has been around for a while so we visit once more to check if it still has its quaint charm. Aside from the worn out menus, not much has changed. The interiors feel a bit dated now and need an upgrade but the outdoor seating is still pleasant. It’s right by the Greek-style amphitheatre – an unusual backdrop, and one we welcome.

There’s a lengthy list of all the usual suspects and a few extras on the menu. We start off with a caprese salad, which is always a classic. Le Vesuvio’s fortunately tastes better than it looks. The pizza that arrives next is massive. It’s loaded with mascarpone and buffalo mozzarella. The roasted porcini mushrooms have a nice earthy flavour and the gorgonzola cheese on top, along with the flavour of truffle, make this rather indulgent.

A home-style lasagne shows up on the table resplendent with a criss-cross pattern of white sauce. It’s a decent-sized portion of the homely dish, served in an earthern pot.

What’s really impressive about the entire experience is the service. The servers are happy to accommodate any request and make money-saving suggestions that we appreciate.

Le Vesuvio is alright in the food department, but the venue definitely needs an overhaul. We’re likely to come back for a leisurely dinner on the terrace upstairs.
