The food was OK, had calamari followed by the clam pasta and my wife had a pizza. The clam pasta was good, the rest OK ish. Service was pretty frantic. Waiters ran around but never seemed to stop at our table to take the order. Has the potential to be great but not quite there.

My family & clients without exception constantly ask me to take them to Pompeii because the food is great and there is no better value. As a regular, I can state that I have never had a client get anything other than a fantastic meal and they always, always state it is the best in Los Altos - yes, a... More

We love this place. Excellent Italian food, many specials, usually including a nice Risotto and a few good seafood specials. Service is friendly and impeccable. Street-side seeting in a quiet area, regulare 2-4 seating inside, plus an area adaptable for groups (we had 7 once). Great pizza - we discovered the quality of this place via take-out pizza (rare), and... More

Best bread. Fresh, hot, and plentiful. All meals ordered were the same. A bit tight on space, however, they recently leased the empty property next to them and have considerable expanded their space.. Also used the opportunity to freshen the look. If the food is still as good as before, I'll be a monthly visitor. Prices are fair, service a... More

Hearty Italian fare with outdoor seating. We loved it and the dog loved it. The Calzone was delicious but very very large. The pasta and gnocchi were excellent

This is a quaint and authentic place with a great deal of integrity. I admire someone who can pull off an atmosphere similar to Italy in Silicon Valley. The setting is familiar and the food very good and service friendly and attentive. They have inside and outside eating and it is nice to have a quaint casual place to go... More

I went with some friends and their kids. The server was very friendly and accommodating. I have some dietary restrictions and needed to avoid certain things and their menu is great for that. You can order a salad and add a piece of salmon or chicken on top. You don't have to get just the salmon salad. They make mixing... More

Consistently good food and a fair number of vegetarian options. My personal favorite is their carbonara. The angel hair with tomatoes is also very good. Fairly good house Chianti if you are in the mood. Nice outdoor seating
