Here is why this was the best meal I had in Italy: Host served a small appetizer free of charge. Steak was served in a hot plate sprinkled with rock salt and was tender and juicy! The steak was accompanied by a salad with basil leaves, tomatoes, and olive oil. Dessert was cheesecake topped with a berry film and real... More

If you are touring Pompei, you must stop by this restaurant. It has an awesome ambiance, great service, and amazing food all at a reasonable price. Best restaurant I've tried in Italy so far.

Slightly out of the center, so you have to know about this place. Sat outside on the small terrace by the entrance. Food wine and services was outstanding. Definitely recommended.

We had the most perfect lunch here after our tour of Pompeii on September 1. It is only minutes from the historic site. I can still picture the bright green arugula salad with those very very red cherry tomatoes. The grilled fish was soooo fresh and beautifully prepared. This is the food one expects in a Michelin star restaurant but... More

I was lucky enough to be treated to this culinary delight a few days ago. Each course was sublime and the volcano dessert with liqueur top off the night. the chef owner Fiorenzo hope I got that right made sure our eye fillet steak was cooked to perfection.

Having read about Garum on Tripadvisor, we decided to visit whilst staying in Pompei. The restaurant is just off the tourist track but not more than 5 minutes from the town centre. We arrived to be met by a friendly waiter who was pleasant and helpful. The first courses were very tasty and filling. We then went for the steaks... More

My husband and I had a wonderful meal here... while I'm definitely more the food lover, even he appreciated how tasty it all was. Beautiful service, and capped off with delicious desserts and espresso. Pompei has some amazing restaurants; this is definitely one of the top.

The food here had very high quality but 2 of 4 dishes was not of my taste but I believe others would think they were very nice. I could understand that there was cared about every detail.

I love my steak and so was delighted to find that Garum offer a quality steak for only 12 Euros. Excellent food, great service and nice ambience. They also have an extensive menu, seafood dishes etc, so if you're looking for a quality meal, somewhere a bit special, then head for Restaurant Garum.

We had an amazing lunch here with our grandson having his usual pasta without cheese, brought to him in the form of a spaghetti volcano with a basil leaf on top. My husband and I each had a steak dish - one with sun dried tomatoes and one with mushrooms. We also shared some grilled vegetables and had bread and... More
