Great food and reasonable prices! Amazing atmosphere and service. A must stop in NKY. They had an exceptional kids menu and HUGE lunch portions. The calamari was the best I have ever had and the risotto balls were so tasty! It is apparent that all the food is fresh and not frozen or trucked in.

This was our first time traveling to Pompilio's on a girls' trip to Cincy. Reading reviews from other fellow TripAdvisors we decided we would go to Pompilio's to celebrate our friend's birthday. We were not disappointed. The building itself is old, nothing fancy, but don't let that deceive you. We had excellent service and everything we ordered was amazing. Many... More

This was fun place for dinner before catching a band at Southgate Revival Music House a few blocks away. The food was delicious, the staff was more than helpful. Great, historic building. Go!

We love Pompilio's. Have been visiting for 30+years - when Mama would welcome you at the door. But what's going on now? - last night I thought we were at an Amish restaurant. The front guys all had these awful ugly long beards!! Please, this is an Italian restaurant - get rid of the disgusting facial hair! Our food was... More

The ravioli and meatballs are outstanding. This is the only thing I ever get, over 50 visits. Sometimes the red sauce has a burnt taste.

Pompilio's in Newport, is the location of the shooting of the movie "Rain Man" with Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise. Besides the "celebrity" value, the main reason you want to go here is the great food, and super service!
