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

My other go to dinner restaurant. Take out at least once a week. Fresh ingredients and classic style. Friendly staff and owners. Everything is yummy. Fettuccine with chicken or de mare. Scallopine is tender and tasty.

Good selection in the menu for vegetarians. Good service. Nice to sit outside during the summer months.

I have been many times to this bustling, noisy Italian restaurant where the food is good, prices reasonable and service outstanding. I was with a party of 12 in the side room and ordered my favorite lasagna. This time it came with a burned top and smothered in a tomato sauce. The layers of meat lost texture until the lowest...

We needed a table for 10 and they just couldn't have been more accommodating. The food is always consistently good and very reasonably priced. The service is always exceptional and there is no attitude. Noisy in my book means busy which means good food.

It is a small restaurant pack with tables. Service is good and accommodating. The food is tasty. However, not that much to be mentioned. Different pasta with same type of sauce, lack of variety. . As other reviews, the place is noisy. Had a party of six people with a extreme loud laughter next to us made the situation worst.... More

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
