Vesuvio’s Pizzeria & Ristorante in downtown Wilkes-Barre is the destination for pizza, subs, and sandwiches. This casual restaurant is popular with local college students, especially on Tuesday and Thursday nights when plain slices are just one dollar each.
Their lounge and sports bar has 24 beers on draft and runs plenty of drink specials. In the warmer months, chill out on their outdoor patio with a cocktail.
When you walk in and see all the pizzas lined up behind the counter, you’ll have to grab a slice. Try the cheesesteak stuffed pizza, one of their biggest sellers featuring a blend of four cheeses and steak in a pocket of fresh dough. They also have specialty pies like the Vesuvio’s Special, a white pizza topped with grilled chicken, tomatoes, and ranch.
Vesuvio’s also has creative cheesesteaks that go beyond the traditional toppings. Try the North Main cheesesteak, which includes jalapeño poppers, onion rings, and southwest ranch dressing.
