Vesuvio Restaurant Bournemouth Interior


At Vesuvio we combine authentic Italian cuisine with warm friendly hospitality to create a memorable dining experience. Come on in and take a look…

Experience breathtaking views across the bay from the Isle of Wight to Old Harry Rocks. Relax with a coffee on our seated terrace, just a few steps away from the golden sand of Alum Chine, or enjoy lunch or dinner inside our beautifully designed, contemporary Italian restaurant.

We celebrate the traditions of Italian cuisine with homemade pastas, pizza in our wood burning ovens and Italian specialities with locally sourced meat and seafood delivered daily. We have an extensive bar selection with some of the finest Italian wines.

We create authentic Italian dishes using carefully selected fresh, locally sourced ingredients that arrive to our door daily. As well as our extensive a la carte menu we have a specials menu in the evening which changes weekly, offering an extensive range of fish and seafood specialities with the freshest local catches.

No matter what time of day or year, Vesuvio is the perfect destination for any occasion…
