My husband's seafood risotto was so perfect so he couldn't be happier and so was my home made pasta. We both ate tuna steaks with asparagus for main course and there were many perfect bites. Just go to the Garum.

Great atmosphere, decor, wine list, and all. The service was superb and the food was absolutely delicious and presented with style. What a great find and so reasonably priced. Get the Steak with rocket and parmigiana!

We spotted this on the way to our hotel and they recommended it - and booked for us, which is a must, because it's popular. The food was excellent, and there were some unusual dishes. The signature garum pasta and affettato di polpo got us off to a good start, followed by two good steaks. The service was exceptionally friendly,... More

We only stayed in Pompeii for two nights but this was the best restaurant that we are at during that time. Very delicious and fancy but surprisingly not expensive. Highly recommend!!

fantastic food, great looking restaurant, nice ambience. Off the main 'strip' as we were directed here by the hotel, and what a lovely find. Nice to have a menu that wasn't full of the same old pizza and pasta, more gastro type food.

We gave this little resaturant a visit on our last night and we were not disappointed. The food and wine was excellent. The staff were friendly but not intrusive. We only managed starters and mains as there was so much food in each course. Lovely though and well recommended.

We were very very lucky to get a table without reservation, so be smart and book in advance! Top rated already (when we visited), we found that this place truly deserves to be called #1 in Pompei. We had several courses (Italian style) and loved every bite of every dish. Waiter recommended a very moderately priced wine which nevertheless complemented... More

Me and my partner visited last night, going upon the recommendations on this website we were more than apprehensive but Garum and its staff didn't not disappoint Highly recommend the salted fillet steak, delightful and only 12 dollar which is perfect Partner enjoyed the seafood variety plate for starters You won't find better
