Every aspect of our dining experience was wonderful. I am a vegetarian and our server was willing to check with the kitchen staff to ensure that my desired food items were indeed vegetarian. Additionally, the kitchen staff were willing to modify an entree to make it vegetarian. The minestrone soup was served extremely hot, full of vegetables, and was absolutely... More

I have been wanting to try this place for a while now and finally got the chance this past Sunday. The decor is really nice, it is popular but I was expecting authentic Italian food. I ordered Chicken Marsala- it tasted like it was made with powdered brown gravy mix and the cook used a very sweet wine for the... More

It's hard to review this place. First off, the food was very good and our waitress was amazing. The bread was also very good. Now, my problem with this place. I felt the prices were a little high to begin with, but we ordered off the menu provided. We ordered off the lunch special portion. Upon checkout, we were informed... More

First, we had a group of ten with no reservation. They were able to accommodate us in a short amount of time. Very commendable. I had the veal piccata that I would rate somewhere between good and very good. The house salad that came with it had a nice variety of greens and a very nice house dressing. I had... More

Stopped on our way home today, and we weren't disappointed. Yum! The bread was warm, the salad was cold, and the pasta was cooked well. Both my husband and I enjoyed our lunch and couldn't finish our meals. I brought enough with me for at least one more meal, maybe two. Restaurant was clean, servers were friendly, and the food...

It's not often I eat Italian food in San Antonio, but this is certainly the restaurant for it! Upon entry you feel you have travelled to Rome with the vividly painted copulas. The menu offers numerous Italian dishes with enough options to entice any guest. Portion sizes are large, which is likely why the prices can be a bit expensive.... More

We chose this restaurant as a family dinner gathering and a centralized location. The service and atmosphere was good and friendly. The food was good Italian, not the greatest but quite good, with good bread and oil and a dinner salad.

This was our first visit to the Pompeii Grill and we were not disappointed. Based upon a review by a local restaurant critic I had the Chicken Napolitana, others had Osso Buco, Grilled Tilapia and Linguini Carbonara. These dishes were all cooked to perfection. The Ceasar Salads were pretty bland - not sure if the restaurant makes its own dressing,... More

Went there with friends and enjoyed the food and the service was great but the place is depressingly dark even during the day. It was dark to the point I could barely see what my food looked like. Unless they brighten this place up I won't be back.
