I had the pleasure of dining in this gem of a place during one rainy evening. The sound of rain only added to the romantic feel of the evening. As soon as you walk through the door, the staff is very welcoming and cheerful as if a friend is stopping by for dinner. The food is certainly in the top... More

Had a wonderful meal at Il Machiavella restaurant on our first night in Pompei, and returned on the second night for a better meal. The food was fresh as they only use ingredients which were fresh that day. Sauces were light and full flavoured The waiter was passionate about food, without being overbearing, and selected a great set of meals... More

I have had a wonderful dinner here during my stay in Pompei, where I have been to visit the ruins. The food was amazing, typical dishes from the Neapolitan tradition, my family and I enjoyed the scialatielli and the sea food so much! I really recommend it for a pleasant dinner! 5 Stars. Gerry

The food was really good, the place is nice and service is outstanding. On top of that, the staff went out of their way to make sure we would get back to the hotel safely. It was overall an amazing experience.

This is a great little find, the food was the best we had on our holiday in Italy and the staff were fantastic. From 7 -10pm its quite , after this the locals arrive confirming this place serves great food at very reasonable prices. In fact it was so good we ate their on the following night as well.

Ignore my rating, walked all the way to this restaurant because of the favourable reviews, only to find it shut! (Friday 1st October 2010) flags were outside but the menu boxes were empty, so I suspect it may have closed down.

We found this restaurant by chance.....for some reason the main streets into the city were blocked off on Sunday evening, so we found parking on a back street and turned down the side street and found Salvador and his charming restaurant. We were greeted with an aperitif (welcoming drink) and an appetizer, while we try to decide what to order.... More

We were recommended to I Machiavelli when we stayed at the nearby Hotel Forum. We walked in and were completely amazed at this gem in the city! You would never know what was behind the walls surrounding this establishment. The ambiance was unlike anything we experienced in our trip around Italy. The service was exceptional, and the food delightful. We... More
