I used to really enjoy this restaurant, but each time I return the quality seems to decline slightly. I wish they would offer a better bread to start instead of the plain white bread and butter.

I had to try this restaurant and took out of town friends, we were so very disappointed. The sauce tasted burnt and the pasta was mushy.unfortunately I wont be going back.

Great food, great server, great night! I had tomato vodka sauce with shrimp over angel hair (my own concoction that they were happy to make). Another friend had the sampler, lasagna, egg plant parm, sausage and meatballs spaghetti. Another friend had the pesto scallop dish. All were deemed fabulous! But the blue ribbon dish went to the San luci- a... More

this place was just a small Italian restaurant but boy was the sauce ever delicious. I am very fussy about sauce ( I am Italian) but this was the best by far

Sunday night visit. Took awhile to be acknowledged after being seated. Waitress very friendly and helpful. Place was very dirty with stuff all over the floor and an atmosphere of needing a deep clean. Bread was so-so. Cool butter was appreciated. Meatballs were the best thing about the meal. My pasta was not totally cooked. Husband's ravioli was good. Cannoli... More

We had great service, great food and great beverages. Love the fact that there is bocce ball, which was busy so we didn't get to partake! We did have a hair on our appetizer; they replaced the appetizer but there was not discount or such given.... but we did enjoy it just the same.

We were in the area visiting the Aquarium earlier this month and decided to come here for lunch based on reviews on Trip Advisor. We were here at lunch time and were seated promptly. I can't remember our waitress' name, but she was very friendly and knowledgeable of answers to our questions and offered recommendations. My husband had the lasagna... More

Drove 5 hours to see a concert up the street so wasn't familiar with the area at all. Decided to check this place out while walking through the cute, quaint neighborhood. Loved the antique everything about the bar and building. Charming! It was 7pm on a Saturday and the place was very busy but we only had a 20 minute... More

I went to Pompilio's for my birthday dinner. I could feel the history of the restaurant when I walked in! We had a lovely waitress and good service. I got manicotti for dinner and it was very good. I would rank it as the 2nd best I've had. My wine attracted fruit flies so I had to keep a napkin... More
