We read about this place and decided to give it a try. Food was good, not the best Italian out there but reasonable price for the quality. The decorations are outdated and in need of updating. The chairs, booths and tables could also use some...More

We love Pompilio's, it is one of our favorite places in the area to eat. We love the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere and the prices are very reasonable. There isn't anything overly fancy about Pompilio's, but they offer delicious, simple, traditional Italian fare. We have never...More

This is a fun Italian restaurant made famous in the movie "Rain Man." The food is good, the quantities are generous, and the staff is friendly. On the downside, in the evenings, it can be crowded and parking can be problematic.

Went the evening before for drinks and the great entertainment. The meals looked so good we got takeout the very next evening. The beef ravioli was great and the spaghetti with meatballs were super good.
