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

Very friendly service, wonderful Antipasti mixed selection and very good seafood. The waiter recommended a regional wine which was excellent. The whole meal was better than anything we had in Rome and we ate at some very good restaurants. The meal was very good value. It is on a busy main road but the food more than makes up for... More

We entered by coincidence. We got a very friendly and professional waiter. I asked him if he could recommend something, as I didn't really have a preference. Something light, as I wasn't really hungry... I had an excellent pasta dish, a first (forgot the name). I was so marvelled by the exquisite taste, that I asked the waiter if he... More

It has taken a while but we have learnt how to choose an Italian menu. This souls be the first time we chose from every course. Appetizer, a mixed platter with aubergine parmagana, prawn, stuffed zucchini flower . Then seafood pasta, then beef . Too full for dessert, shame. Beautiful service, food and flavours melt in your mouth, the wine... More

The staff were very helpful and the service was prompt but not overbearing (they gave us time to enjoy the meal). The food was full of flavour and was beautifully presented. We only went with the house red but this surpassed our expectations and rounded off a very pleasant meal.
