We were there with friends in April. The atmosphere is great the food also. I had the tomato sauce pasta which was one of the best pasta i ever tried.

We found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Good service but the meat we ordered was so good and tasty like we never have tasted before, so we just had to go there the day after again so we could get more of it! Absolutely recommendable

We stayed two nights in Pompeii and used Trip Advisor to seek out a place to eat. Many thanks to everyone who recommended this restaurant, it was fabulous. We sat outside and enjoyed the best meal of our two week trip to Italy. The owner's wife was waitressing that evening and it was really lovely to hear their plans for... More

The Restaurant Garum was recommended by our hotel who called at the last minute to make reservations.. Thank goodness they did, since it seemed that we got the last table, and they had to turn away several groups. It lived up to expectations. I had read that it might be the best restaurant in Pompeii. (Not fancy but very nice)... More

We visited Garum on a recommendation from our air bnb host and we loved it so much we went twice in our 4 night stay in the area. The waiter Salvatore was extremely helpful, patient and welcoming. The steak was high quality and cooked precisely to order. The seafood risotto was freshly made and just the right portion size. There... More

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.
