Vesuvio Restaurant & Bar  Est. 1987

We are now celebrating our 32nd Year of VesuviO: we originally opened Pizzeria Vesuvio’s oven doors on 25th October 1987 at 44-46 High Street, Clapham, Bedfordshire.


Whilst we evolved from a humble 55 seater pizzeria restaurant into one of the largest and most successful Italian restaurants in Bedfordshire seating up to 220 patrons, the move to our brand new premises on 31st October 2006 meant we could offer our customers so much more.


The popularity of our Clapham restaurant and our family commitment drove our achievements. With this success we purchased the land and built our new VesuviO with the addition of banquet and conferencing facilities in The Amalfi Suite.

NEW - The Pompeii Suite - Private Restaurant room adjacent to VesuviO for up to 22 guests

We thrive on being able to provide our customers with a service for every occasion. VesuviO offers a unique dining experience. Since 1987, we have been hosts to a variety of celebrations ranging in size from family birthday parties to weddings and corporate events and with the new VesuviO and The Amalfi Suite, the reservations for weddings, private banquets & celebrations are constantly coming in. Our future is very exciting and we welcome new and regular customers to share the excitement with us.

We are open every day for Coffee, Lunch, Evening Meals from 11am to 11pm. Every Sunday you can experience family dining VesuviO style with a Sunday à la carte which hosts our famous £9.95 Sunday Lunch Roast as well as authentic Italian options like pizza and pasta to choose from - always something for everybody. Please note Sunday Roast is served 12pm to 6pm every Sunday. Our Sunday Supper Menu is available from 6pm onwards.
