WOW!! Now that's Italian – I went there with my daughters for a "girls nite out". They had the "grandma's" pizza, and a regular cheese slice while I ate the Buono Gustaio. OMG!! That has got to be the BEST pasta dish I've had in a VERY long time. We now make vesuvios our weekly resturaunt to dine in
Feels like home – We live really close to Vesuvio and have been here for many times, eat-in and take-out. The place is warm and servers are always friendly. Vesuvio is nothing fancy but they do make pizza using the freshest ingredients. Everything else, also, is well made.
My type of slice – This is the type of pizza I love. Crisp, crisp crust, juicy cheese and tangy tomato sauce. If you like a lower moisture cheese (i do!) versus the higher moisture cheese they use at places like Grimaldi's, Lombardi's and Patsy's - than you'll like this place. It also has the classic, no frills feel of a real NY/NJ italian pizza joint, but with much tastier pizza than 99.9% of them.
Mouth Watering Pizza – Unlike the previous rater, I've never been to Lento's. After reading his/her review, I will have to try it. I love Vesuvio's...they have very good pizza, one of the best, if not THE best in Brooklyn. A close second would be La Sala's right down the street. Vesuvio's features real Italian pizza made by real Italians listening to real Italian radio. In Manhattan you always find pizza being made by Mexicans, Chinese or Eastern Indians. Nothing against Mexicans, Chinese or Eastern Indians but, Italians make the best pizza for obvious reasons. There is only one pizzeria in Manhattan that comes close to Brooklyn pizza. I was there only once and can't remember the name of the place; it was near Central Park. Anyhow, Vesuvio's is the place to go for pizza. They have a nice thin, crunchy crust, a tastebud loving gravy (sauce), and mouth-watering cheese. You'll love it !
