“This is the BEST PIZZA ON EARTH!”
Review of Vesuvio Pizza

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 the best, with just the right amount of olive oil and seasonings. Now the kids are grown and gone, so when we don't finish a pie, we freeze it, and it's just as good re-heated in a hot oven! Crust is crispy, sauce and cheese bubbly! WOW! The chicken-parm subs are yummy and we are all fond of the hot-mussels. This family business is seriously all about the food! Pure and simple.

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 with Vesuvio's. On those nights we have to settle for second best. I've been to Naples, Italy and walking into Vesuvio's is like going back to Italy. Their pizza is that good!
