We were unsure about this casual place but we saw the food out and being hungry, we gave the place a go. The sausage in my spinach and sausage sandwich was too charred but the deep fried pizza we had was especially tasty, and the other items were pleasant. It was all extremely cheap too.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while strolling Via Roma on a busy Sunday night. The two of us had several courses and a bottle of wine, and I think it came to less than 30 euros, and everything was delicious!

The restaurant had only tourists there and was 2/3 empty on a Wednesday night. The pastas were acceptable but a caprese salad was deplorable (cold tomatoes, dried basil flakes). A major turnoff was the antipasti bar that you pass on the way in and had very questionable (maybe off) food on it. I didn't see anyone take food from it,... More

Good service, so so atmosphere, tasty pizza (though not the best we had in Italy) but the best we had in Pompei.

Couldn't decide where to eat after seeing Pompei. This place has a wide selection of pizzas and all Mediterranean dishes. Great service. Lovely atmosphere around 8pm-10pm (bit quiet before then - maybe a good chance to grab a table while you can).

This is a very good restaurant to try, silver service for a very good price. It has been frequented by famous people in the past such as Sophia Loren, Christian Barnard and can you believe it, Angela Merkel. We had the risotto with seafood and a salad on the side and it was delicious. Definitely worth a visit.

We had supper here in August 2007 and returned in September 2016. What has changed? It is quieter, but it is not August! Has the food quality changed? No, no, no. When we entered two people in our group said it looks too expensive and wanted to leave. It turned out that it was fabulous food at reasonable prices and... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. We went in and were concerned it would be out of our price range cause of how nice it looked. However it was fairly cheap. The good was amazing and I highly recommend going here during your stay. The sizes are decent and the staff great!

Visited pompeii and wanted a late lunch. Found this place on main Street and liked it's friendly feel. Extensive choice, both pastas and pizza were generous and tasted fantastic. Reasonable price 15 euro each and good service. Perfect way to finish our visit to pompeii.
