Very nice surprise

Nice atmosphere, non intrusive music, great food, great service, parking nearby. Totally unexpected if you looked at it from the outside

We ate at this restaurant when we visited Pompeii. It exceeded our expectations for a restaurant in such a tourist area. Every mouthful was delicious. My husband especially enjoyed his plate of raw tuna and prawns. We noticed that, despite it's location, there were a lot of Italians eating here. Very good value. Do visit this restaurant- you won't be... More

Even though this was the first of many restaurants we ate at in Italy (we were there for 8 days visiting 5 cities) in retrospect it was one of the best. The service was on par with that of most American restaurants which is surprising for Europe. Our waiter, Salvator I believe was his name, was extremely friendly and very... More

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.
