Great Pizza

For sit-down dinners, the ambiance is great. Soft lighting, great staff. For take-aways, very good value for money.

the food is always great here and especially like the lasagne dish. Atmosphere is good and the restaurant is very quaint in size. I would recommend booking as it does seem to be nusy on the days it is open.

We ate out here on a Thursday night, just popped in and the restaurant was almost fully booked which is always a good sign. It is definitely a casual place, no frills in the decor or setting, but the essential were right on - friendly and quick service, a big selection of gourmet pizza and other meal types, and well...

This is a simple restaurant which serves good pizza and pasta meals. Not ideal if you don't like kids as this is a popular place in Palmerston North for taking the children out to eat.

In a gloomy PN Pompeii's is a bright spot. Lovely collegiate atmosphere. Very friendly staff. And check the Gourmet Pizzas. What a creative mind to come up with pizzas topped with Apricot, Creamy Brie and Chicken Breast with Sliced Almonds (ABC) or Chicken Breast, Cashews, Onions, Chunky Mushrooms & Capsicum on a Satay Sauce base (Satay Chicken).

Great pizza, great service, and great atmosphere. This place is always so busy. It does pay to reserve a table as sometimes they are fully booked. Even when the place is packed the service and food is still great.

We had dinner here while we were visiting PN. They truly are beautiful pizzas with heaps of toppings and the sort of high quality ingredients you'd expect from somewhere like here.

Great value Italian food in a family-friendly setting. We adults especially liked the pizza bread starters and the lasagne. My son and friend /co-conspirator pronounced "le pizze" to be "molto buone". The pepperoni toppings were particularly appreciated.The wine list was creditable and the service was homely, relaxed and inviting. An excellent prelude to a family night at the movies.
