We went a few times to this place when it was in its old location in Olbia. We tracked them down this holiday and went for one of their lovely bufala pizzas. We weren't disappointed as they were delicious but we had to ask for a takeaway box because we couldn't manage to finish them! Lots of locals, a few... More

I was pleased to find this restaurant, by accident as I was out walking. Service from Samuele was first class! I'm gluten free, which was not a problem at all. Be sure to try this lovely restaurant !

We wanted to have a nice pizza on our first night on Sardinia. The restaurant is a typical local restaurant rund by the family. The wood heated oven combined with a good chef resulted in super thin pizzas with good local ingrediens. House was served chilled, and was a great companion.

Moniku_89, Proprietario at Il Vesuvio, responded to this review

Dear Caro98, we are sorry for what happened I can guarantee that this is a Neapolitan wood-fired oven cooking times are very short due to the high temperature that allows the pizza to be soft and high quality essential in Neapolitan pizza. As I said in the previous review of your friends if they were to happen again I advise... More

The place is friendly and clean but the food is terrible : I had a Pizza Calzone and it was just like pizza bread and only about 25 % had a filling. But the filling was so bad (no tomatoes, no oregano and the Mozarella not melted) that I only ate the bread and let the filling go back. My... More

I'm very sorry for this review, because the staff of this restaurant was very friendly, almost exquisite at times. Unfortunately, I believe they've got serious organisation problem and when the restaurant is full they just cannot deliver. For this reason, I give them 2 star in the overall rating and 2 stars in the service category. I went there because... More
