Vesuvio has served the West Toronto area since Italian food was a novelty. Their recipes are always original and of the best quality. As the first and oldest pizzeria and spaghetti house in Toronto, they continue to be a family owned establishment and maintain the close attention given to their authentic Italian cuisine.
