Tasty and plentiful food

Surrounded by uninspiring pizza places we turned to Tripadvisor's number one restaurant in Pompeii. It was good. In fact very good but not quite excellent. The food was tasty and plentiful at a great value price but not memorable. Service friendly but a little slow at times.

The restaurant came recommended to us. It was OK. Very clean and food reasonable but I seem to remember we waited a long time for the food to arrive. It was a Friday night and quite busy and only one gentleman waiting on so he needed more help. Still we weren't in such a hurry so it was OK and... More

Prosciutto de Parma with mozzarella. Delicious 8 euro. Big enough to split 2-3 ways. Pumpkin risotto with clams. Just get it 9 euros. Steaks very good 14 euros. Pana cotta best ever 4 euro. French Mumm champagne 35 euro. Large sparkling water 2 euro. Wow, what a deal. Great food. Great service. Great value. I will be pleasantly surprised if... More

We went of lunch and for dinner on the same day - so it must be good! The service is one hundred percent sympatico. Mostly locals were there, and all were italians. Restaurant La Betola nearby may be slightly finer and more elegant but it also more expensive and more touristy. I rate them as equal but different. Both have... More

Wonderful food amazing and friendly service, our waiter was more than happy to spend the time with us and suggested food and drinks for us to try even though the place was very very busy. Great atmosphere and good prices. I would recommend it to anyone spending time in Pompeii

Garum is a small cosy restaurant in modern part of Pompei, a bit out of touristic attractions, which makes it frequented not only by ravellers, but by locals as well. The food is very good and fresh. Price is fare. Service is friendly but a bit slow. The other little disadvantage: the terrace where you can enjoy the meal during... More
