We arrived in Point Boro on Halloween 1986 from NYC, and asked our neighbor to recommend a good pizza place. Without hesitation he said "Vesuvio". For over 30 years Vesuvio has been our "gold-standard" of pizza!. A legend to our family, and we never found better in NY, NJ, or anywhere! They use quality ingredients. Crust is thin, sauce is...

Been a customer of Vesuvius for 40 years ! Dominic bakes a consistent perfect tomato pie. Love his plain, Sicilian and other Italian specialities including muscles call ones and subs

Vesuvio's has always had the best pizza in Point Pleasant. I have been going here for over 40 years and the same family still owns and operates the restaurant. The only negative thing I can say about Vesuvio's is that they don't deliver. Sometimes I just feel like staying in and calling out for pizza and you can't do that... More

Instead of getting some re-heated pizza slices on the boardwalk, we decided to try out this little pizzeria before heading back home. This is just a place to pick up a pizza- or sit here and eat it- not a restaurant with great atmosphere. Nothing fancy, but we definitely enjoyed our quick and reasonably priced dinner .

I grew up eating Vesuvio's pizza. And I'm 46. It's been here forever.....for a reason. The taste of this pizza is parallel to none. Every other pizza pales in comparison. And a wonderful community minded family owns and runs it. Win win!

It's a great family owned local establishment that's been around for years. The pizza & everything on the menu is consistently great! We wouldn't go anywhere else for pizza.

Every Thursday is "pizza night" for our family so we've tried a number of different local establishments over the past 7 years. For great pizza on a consistent basis, you can't beat Vesuvio's which remains our favorite. Over 7 years time, I'd say we've had a pie that was undercooked no more than 3 times. Those are pretty good odds!... More

Wanted to love this place (cute older man making the pizzas, old school style pizza place, prices from the 1980s) but the pizza was just ok; gummy crust (prefer my pizza really thin and crispy) and salty sauce. Hoping it was an off night; will try them again. FYI: cash only (they have an ATM inside and they do not... More
