Il Vesuvio Italian Restaurant is located in Llantwit Major in the Vale of Glamorgan, Wales.

Llantwit Major is a town and community in Wales. Situated on the Bristol Channel Coast, it is one of four towns in the Vale of Glamorgan with the third largest population (13,366 in 2001) after Barry and Penarth, and ahead of Cowbridge. Llantwit Major is 4 ½ miles from Cowbridge, 9 miles from Bridgend, 10 miles from Barry and 15 miles from Cardiff.

Llantwit Major is intentionally unassuming, and the town exudes history. In the maze of narrow streets can be discovered independent shops, friendly cafes and a cluster of historical inns dating from the 12th century.

A short drive or gentle stroll takes you to Llantwit Majors beach, Cwm Colhuw, where there is a café, great rock pools and easy access to the West Coast Path.
