Pompei is arguably the best restaurant in the city when it comes to Italian cuisine. The food is outstanding and the service is great, albeit inconsistent. On an off day, you are likely to run into unimpressive food and unfriendly staff quickly looking to get...More

Pompei is one of the safest places eat at if you want to have a quiet lunch/ dinner for 2 or are entertaining a bigger group. Food & Service is consistently good. Good outdoor seating option when the weather is nice.
