“A nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

I took a group of more than 30 persons to restaurant Garum for an evening meal. The food was nice and the service very efficient. We had a meal of 5 different cources, a synthesis of the Italian culinary tradition. A nice variety in food, deliciously presented and nice wine, coffee and Limoncello to drink. It is a good place to take a group.
On the negative side there is not much. The service was a bit to speedy between some cources and some gueast complained about the bright light from the lamps. We will come again when we take our next group to Pompei.

“First meal in Pompeii”

Had a very nice dinner last night. Great service, good food and wine. Took steak back to cook more as it came out rare but the seafood was beautifully cooked and full of flavour.

“Sudden and pleasant dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

Travel to the Amalfi coast, we decided to make a stop in Pompeii for dinner. We chose the Garum for the comfort of the car park, within walking distance from the exit Pompeii West of Highway Na-Sa within walking distance from the station of Fs, the excavations and the sanctuary.
We dined outside on a lovely table decoration and chili paste.
We chose a fish dinner with a trio of appetizers, a trio of first course for adults and a children's roasted squid, white wine and Coca-Cola. All delicious and fresh, the chef Fiore, prepared foods, simple but with great imagination has combined the fish with vegetables, cheese and nuts. Superb fried squid with fennel cream.
Price/quality is excellent. Fast and friendly service, relaxing atmosphere.

“Revived after the Pompeii heat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

We visited Ristorante Garum for lunch in the course of a day long visit first to Pompeii with Herculaneum to come. Our driver had asked the restaurant to open especially for us and we were treated to calm, cool and a delicious meal. We had simple pasta and pizza dishes but we would all highly recommend the chocolate torte which was as good as anything served in a five star restaurant. Ristorante Garum completely restored our party's energy and good humour and we would certainly seek it out again when we are next in Pompeii
