Great little hole in the wall hidden in La Puente. Most flavorful pizzas and main dishes will make you feel like you are in Italy. Their salads are refreshing! The ambience includes the old pictures from years past. The staff is always ready to serve with a smile.

The best real Italian food in the San Gabriel, without exception! The new owner has been with Pompeii's for I believe over twenty years. He started as a bus boy, then moved through the family business until he realized his dream & bought the business. 😎

I basically grew up at this place in the 70's. A few years back it had closed and reopened with a different business. Well its reopened and the pizza is delicious! Most of the old pictures have been put back up also.

We had a family gathering here on a Friday night (1 week before their grand re-opening). We had a table reserved, so there was no wait. The food service was excellent and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was pretty good as well. We enjoyed garlic bread, cheese bread and a pizza—my best pizza experience in California!... More

Love the red sauce and meatballs. I don't normally order spaghetti and meatballs at Italian restaurants but it is all I have ever order here because I love it so much.

We have been going to Pompeii's for years. Recently, they had a turn around with new ownership. We love all their pasta dishes. My fav is the lasagna with sausage and antipasta salad. The pizza to us, has always been a little overpriced, but because of the delicious taste has been worth it. The few last times we went we... More
