“Best Italian Food”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Pompeii has some of the best Italian food I have had. When we arrived, we were immediately seated. Bread with olive oil was brought to the table as we sat down. We had the chicken marsala and the chicken piccata. Both were outstanding. Meals came with pasta and a salad. Service was very attentive with beverages refilled promptly. For a great server ask for Shayne. He made the meal very enjoyable. Next time we are in San Antonio, we will visit again.

“Fantastic food, service, ambiance -- Excellent”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

We were taken to Pompeii yesterday (March 2013), for lunch for four people. The waiter did an over the top job of checking on us, filling our glasses, and seeing if we needed anything. Every dish came to the table piping hot, the salmon and tilapia were cooked to perfection, the cheese ravioli was wonderful. There wasn't a bad thing about this place, thus five stars.

The food is delicious. I especially liked the eggplant Parm.
The atmosphere is charming and quiet, and the service was excellent.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Eggplant Parm”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Food is great and service is OUTSTANDING. The Eggplant Parm is the best ever. And the Chocolate Cannoli is magnifico!!!!!!!!!! Enough for two but you don't want to share :) Highly recommend when you are in the San Antonio area or if you already live in San Antonio - it is a must.

“Magnifico!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Whenever we get over to this part of the city, we go to Pompeii. My apologies, but I cannot comment on anything else but the grilled chicken breast. I just cannot seem to order anything else because it is s-o-o-o good - two pieces of moist chicken breast nicely grilled (observe the professionally seared-in grill marks) served with rich lemon butter, basil, caper sauce (which I order extra of.) Add fresh bread that they serve with garlic, basil oil and pasta with butter garlic sauce and I am in heart attack heaven!!!~
