Yum homemade meatballs

We all ordered the combo platter and it was great. Only item we didnot care for was eggplant pram. Do make a reservation.

Hubby and I were visiting family in Northern Kentucky recently, and Hubby's brother took us and many other family members to Pompilio's for dinner our last night before returning home to California. Bro absolutely RAVED about this place, calling it fine Italian dining at it's best. We drove there, found a parking spot (not easy), and entered. The exterior of... More

Everything with red sauce was really good, but the white sauce was basic. I had the sampler and my wife had Chicken and Cheese Tortellini San Luci. The restaurant itself seemed like it need a bit of an overhaul. It wasn't dirty, but don't think It was very clean either. Not sure if we will rush back anytime soon.

Pompilio's is a treat. The environment reminds me of an old world home. The food is so very good each time we go, which is frequent. My favorite is the lasagna. Prices are moderate, and service has been excellent the many times we have been there. The beer and wine selection is above average, and they have Italian beer as... More

We were attending a U.S. Navy Divisional reunion and where we went for dinner was totally at the discretion of this years host. There were 12 of us, so it was a big table, but the waitress and the rest of the restaurant staff were exceptional and the food exquisite. This place deals cooks to perfection for sure. We are...

Our first time at Pompilio's was an excellent experience. The food was delicious and the service was wonderful as well. Our waitress was Joyce and she took very good care of us.

I've heard nothing but great things about Pompilios - so I was excited to give it a try. We stopped in on a Saturday night, and were seated right away. They brought out bread while we looked over the menu. It's nothing special, tastes like bagged white bread. I started with the Pomp salad, which was very good. The combination... More

The service was good but the food was not good at all. We were looking for authentic Italian cuisine. None of the food appeared to be freshly prepared. Lettuce with 2 cherry tomatoes and 2 cucumber slices was called a house salad with a house dressing of what seemed to be vinegar with oil and sugar. The antipasti platter was... More
