Went over for lunch on a weekend. Ordered an imported steak, blue cheese souffle, a pasta, grilled fish, a pizza and their famous bread pudding. The meats and the desserts were very good. The pasta and pizza barely met expectations but did not disappoint. Could have been a poor menu choice by us. Visit again? yes. Recommend? yes. Service and... More

I thought it's reputation would be overblown, as often is the case with restaurants in PK, but Pompei did not disappoint. Delicious Italian cuisine and wide menu selection from starters, meat and fresh fish dishes and pizza. I recommend going with seasonal specials. I loved the prawns with cilantro risotto and spinach. It was delectable. Also loved, the lemon and... More

Napkins were filthy. Needed to ask 4 times to replace them. Sat for 10 minutes before being served with menus. Restaurant also starting to look run down. Food was great - especially the pizza.

Great pizzas, pasta is average, but their meats and risottos are good. I wouldn't classify most of the dishes as particularly Italian, more like generally European, but good quality and tasty nonetheless.

The ambiance and the atmosphere are great. But unfortunately, the food isn't all that great. I dont mind paying top money if the food is good, but this felt just average, even though we tried a large variety of food. A bit disappointing

Tucked away in Shapes gym and next door to the old Karachi Race Course, Pompeii is a gorgeous place to eat. Overlooking a beautiful garden and an old colonial building, it really is a romantic place to spend ones evenings. And if you're lucky enough to be there in a Karachi rain, it's heavenly. The food is (almost) Italian, the... More

Good for lunch, good for dinner - love the ambiance. Food is just about reasonable. Staff is just Ok friendly - when you see other restaurants getting ahead on that, you expect more. Tables can be far apart than current.
