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

Pompeii is always a good place for dinner, a somewhat European style restaurant, lunch or dinner is always a pleasure. Prices are moderate and maybe more important, its a very pleasant experience with good to great food, service, prices, atmosphere.

Very hospitable and personal service. Our waiter could quickly identify the most popular dishes and wines and guide our selections. Prices of both are very reasonable. Portions are substantial. We therefore elected to split a Greek salad, a linguini con vognole and the chocolate cake with ice cream special. In all three cases, the one serving was more than enough... More

I had a very nice business lunch here. We were lucky to be sitting outside in the sun, so we were all very happy. The food was good... not amazing, but not bad either. I would definitely go back when I am back in Los Altos, CA.

I always check out the fish display and sometimes have the person choose a nice piece for me. May cost more if it weighs more than the standard serving but well worth it. Good atmosphere and rarely noisy.
