Vesuvio Bistro To Check Out of Best Western

Did you hear that Vesuvio Bistro is departing its original location at the Best Western in west Little Rock?

Co-owners Santi Sacca and Bill Chriswell will be renting the former El Chico location at 1315 Breckenridge, not far from the current spot. Sacca said they’re shooting for the beginning of July for the move.

For five years Vesuvio has been operating inside the Best Western at 1501 Merrill Drive, sharing the hotel’s kitchen and atrium. The lease was up, Sacca said, and the owners had been searching for a location with room for more than 75 diners.

“We really pack up almost every night,” Sacca said. “We have to turn people away.”

Sacca said the new place will have live music and he hopes to add a lunch and brunch menu.
