We took our kids , spouses and grand baby out for a family dinner. we started out with bread and butter, didn't order appetizers because the portion sizes are pretty big. You really can't go wrong with anything you order. Let me say the leftovers we took home were just as delicious as the day we were served them. Service... More

A friend and I enjoyed an amazing dinner here by recommendation. I ordered the manicotti with half marinara, and half Alfredo, and she ordered cheese tortellini with alfredo. The alfredo sauce is quite possibly the best alfredo sauce I've ever enjoyed anywhere, and after sampling both of our dishes I was very impressed. I was not impressed with the staff--... More

What can I say? Terrible food, terrible service! No pizza at an Italian restaurant? Lasagna was appalling. Sauce was tasteless -supposed to be meat sauce but just tasted like tomato purée. Garlic bread was sliced bread with garlic salt sprinkled on it! Waitress was unhelpful and seemed to regard each question we asked as an affront to her. Would never... More

See the mirrors on the wall...my dad made the "old" ones with the etching at the bottom. Before the Rainman Renaissance aka the remodel done after the Dustin Hoffman movie filmed the "toothpick scene" here. Mirrors hung down the left and back wall of the large dining room. Allegedly so Lucky Luciano's left over mob friends could see the cops... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time, and it gets very crowded. Very popular with the locals. The food was good. Not NY Italian good, but KY good. Sauces were tasty. Bread was not good though - seemed more like Wonder bread than fresh-baked Italian bread.

We had spent the afternoon at the aquarium and were hungry for Italian. Found this place nearby on the trip advisor app and decided to try it. So glad we did. Great service and great food...our group sampled the toasted ravioli, the chicken marsala, tortillini with alfredo, chocolate cake, lemon italian cream cake, etc...all incredible.

I've been here twice now in the last 30 days. Both times we sat on back patio. We had great service. Their food is very good and reasonably priced. I've never had Chianti before. So good. Two very nice looking bocce ball courts off the patio. Definitely worth a visit.

Used to visit Pompilios in the 70s when we lived there, and loved it. Revisited on our romantic trip back to Cincy last month, and was absolutely delighted in the experience. Got there for a late night snack and nightcap. Unpretentious place. Locals from the neighborhood at the bar. Reds on the TV (They were playing just across the River)... More

My wife and I dined here last week and we enjoyed everything that we had. Try the half eggplant parmigiana for an appetizer. I had the Chicken Marsala and my better half had the Italian Sampler. We split a cannoli and had an expresso for desert. Thanks to a nice spring day, the outdoor section was very pleasant.
