Vesuvio moving to El Chico's

Vesuvios new home, to open in mid-July
  • Vesuvio's new home, to open in mid-July.

Vesuvio's Bistro, the popular Italian restaurant tucked away in the Governor's Suites Hotel on Merrill Drive, and moving to a refurbished stand-alone space at 1315 Breckenridge Drive, the former location of El Chico's. The move, expected in mid-July, will let Vesuvio's double its size as well as its visibility, co-owner Bill Criswell said, with seating for 160 and parking for 90.

"We turn away so many people on the weekends, and we wanted to be in a stand-alone space as well," Criswell said. His partner in Vesuvio's is Santi Sacca.

The bigger space means the bistro will be able to expand its menu, with more "protein" on the menu, like veal chops. Fabrizeo Castangia is chef. The expansion will mean more hires as well, both in the kitchen and out front.

The new space will have a bar lounge for drinks and appetizers.
