New Food in Old Pompei

It was our last night of a 14 day Italian adventure. We had been to Bologna, Venice, Tuscany, Manarola in the Cinque Terre, Ischia and Sorrento. Every spot had its beauty, its gracious hosts, its yumm-arama gelato and eye-rolling entrees. So for our finale in Italy, we ended up in Pompei to tour... read more

We stayed in a B&B opposite this side street restaurant and ate here for the two nights that we stayed. The service, attention and food were all top class. We were offered an array of tasters from the chef alongside our choice of food. Everything we had was of a high standard. Highly recommend a visit to Il Machiavelli.

Have just been to this restaurant tonight and felt compelled to write a review as it was out of this world. If you want bog standard pizza or pasta, this is not for you. If however you are willing to go off the normal tourist trail and try something different you will not be disappointed. The service was amazing, both... More

The ambient, the music, the staff, the food... Everything was perfect. The waiters gave us total attention, explaining the menu and helping us with kindness and courtesy. So far is the best food we have tasted on Italy.

Nice food, the server is very welcoming and has served us many aperitifs and bakeries which are free. Food very delicious, very good wine, price is ok compared to its service. All above, this place is worth going.

Delicious fresh food and excellent service, too upper end for us to eat there as a family more than once but we really liked the evening we had there - felt welcome and that nothing was too much trouble.

Had a good night at the restaurant. Great food and excellent service. One of our party had special dietary requirements, these guys produced a tailored taster menu on request, I cant think of many places that would do that! Worth looking out for (its hidden down a side street from the main road).

Very friendly and good food. Only other table occupied on a Saturday evening was a local Italian one. Nice atmosphere sitting outside. We had a good meal and nice wine but can't understand why it's not busy.
