We were there for dinner, it was wonderful, nice and quiet, food was very delicious and pretty similar to that in Italy (we were in Rome and Florence 20 days prior to this dinner). Prices were reasonable (between 16 and 20 dollars for a main course) and service was great.

It is very popular during the lunch time. Many local older folks will partake lunch, and have left over to take home for a second meal. If there is a larger group (say 6), there is another section where one can have "lunch meeting". without interruption from the service personnel.

Pompeii has been in Los Altos forever. It is low key, food is good and the price is reasonable. It is a local's restaurant with a regular clientele. It is not trendy or flashy, just a place we will go when we do not feel like cooking. My husband and I go there regularly and never had anything to complain... More

We eat here every week after work. Nice people, good food, good service. Highly recommend the grilled artichoke appetizer and the melanzane main course.

Passing thru, we found this place and stopped to eat. Nice surprise. Very clean and very nice waiter who was very accommodating to my tastes. First he served very hot, crispy Italian bread with a topping of garlic, eggplant and oil. Very tasty. Then I had a plate of fried calamari with dipping sauces, also very good. Then we each... More

Have been coming here fairly regularly for at least 5 years. Food remains very good, though occasionally entrees are not as hot as you might want. House salad is great. Pasta very good. They have a good Veal Parmigiano which is not on the menu. House wines are good. Service is good. Overall a reliable place to go.

A few years ago we ate at Pompeii and thought that it was o.k. but no big deal. Our minds have changed and it is now one of our favorites. Their fresh pasta is wonderful, and we have found the service to be outstanding. It isn't a big place, so at times the tables seem a bit close, but since... More

Quaint restaurant with good Italian food. Nice place for a date or a foursome as it quiet. Service was excellent. Good simple menu. Lasagna was top rated and one of our crew loved it. Spaghetti and meat balls looked great. I had the seafood-pasta- cioppino sauce - Very good. The calamari fritti was large ringlets that were cut very thin... More

Due to the good reviews, I had expectations for this "Italian ristorante". I exited this restaurant with no more expectations except for average Italian-themed cooking from an Mexican-American kitchen. We started with deep-fried calamari which was tasty and tender and generous in portion. But it was nothing more than slightly better version than what you would find in a seafood... More
