A perfect lunch after touring Pompeii's ruins.

This is an elegant restaurant that offers delicious food. I started with a refreshing lemonade made from local fresh lemons. It was the perfect antidote to the blistering heat of touring Pompeii's ruins. The restaurant is in the modern city of Pompeii. The decor is lovely and while there is outdoor... read more

Had a wonderful lunch in this extensive restaurant. The outside entrance is small and nondescript but once you enter it is very large with multiple rooms and meanders to a lovely outside patio. The lunch selections were varied and what we had was delicious. There was AC which was appreciated on a very hot day. Also, the bathrooms were modern... More

This evening I went with my family to this restaurant, it having been given as one of the two recommendations for places to eat in Pompeii in the DK guidebook. For a starter I had an exceptionally original egg and fondue entrée, which is very hard to explain, but very delicious. For main I had ravioli, made of potatoes and... More

As others here, we dined for lunch after a visit to Pompeii. A reasonable cab ride from the grounds of the ruins. I had a clean shirt to slip on, my wife a scarf. Therefore quickly transforming ourselves for this meal. A new Michelin One Star is is extremely deserving of the award. The service is substantially above any I... More

We were in Pompeii visiting the old city and when we finished the tour was late 2,30 pm and decided to give a call to the President restaurant to make sure that we could have a table. The lady at the other end was very helpful in giving directions to get to the restaurant. On arrival we were greeted with... More

The service and dining experience here is the best. The Chef is really very very good. During the meal the Chef made several visits to the table to make sure we were enjoying everything. A special first class restaurant

Great surprise in our visit to Pompei. Very well located close to the cathedral, elegant and warm service and the food simply outstanding with use of local products in a top leve cuisine . Superb wine list. This is a must in Pompei, but also in the Napoli region.

My wife and I came here on our way from the Amalfi Coast to Naples. Our hotel concierge highly recommended this place as he said that both the service and food would not disappoint. In short, he was right as this was the best seafood lunch experience we had after a week of eating at higher end restaurants on the... More
