My girlfriends and I come here periodically, because they have the most delicious salads, pastas and pizzas. We always request a thin crust Marguerite pizza with a pesto base...yum! Parking is easy, which is another plus.

The two brothers who started Pompeii a few years ago continue to make an evening of dinning that is memorable and enjoyable. There is a full menu plus daily specials that offer diverse options to a traditional Italian restaurant. The food is fantastic, especially the sauces on the pasta and meats. Fresh ingredients used in everything, Home made pastas and... More

We have been coming to Pompeii for several years and always have a good meal. I love the carbonara, though it is rich. Nice entrees in addition to the pasta dishes, many of which we have tried and liked. This is a family-run and family-oriented place in the downtown Los Altos area. There is nice seating outside for trhe many... More

It's not the greatest Italian restaurant in the world by any means, but it's a real little gem in our little gem of a town. I love the Chicken Marsala, my wife swears by the Linguini Scampi, and the boys love the spaghetti. The pizzas are also very good...nice thin crusts, though a little salty sometimes. I really like the... More

Wonderful food beautifully prepared (love the Baby Spinach Salad & the Salmone Picatta and any of the pastas!) and terrific service. The only downside is it can get noisy at dinner because there are lots of families with kids dining here too. Great seating outside spring, summer, fall & dog friendly there ;-)

Good Panini Sandwiches and a nice menu with many Italian food choices.I had the vegetarian eggplant panini and it was really good, and my mom had the meatball panini which was also good. Very good service. Inside and outside seating right in downtown Los Altos. Reasonably priced food, and we would love to return and try the pasta dishes but... More

My husband and I with friends dropped in to Pompeii Sunday early evening. The restaurant had just opened for dinner and was very quiet (I have been here before and when full, the restaurant can be quite noisy). We were here for a leisurely dinner after a movie. The wait staff were terrific and professional, answering all of our questions... More

We've been coming here for years. No reservations so it used to take some time (but worth it!) to get a table. We have brought friends and family here and everyone enjoyed the food. Now that they have opened the area next door to the corner area, the wait time is less.

The food was excellent and reminded the four of us of New York Italian restaurants. The tomato sauce was wonderful and there was just the right amount of it. Service was friendly and prompt. The only complaint was the noise level. The next time we go, we will opt to sit outside because it was hard to communicate indoors. This... More
