I enjoyed Pompeian dinner created 2000 years ago in Pompei after reaching Pompei from Nappli. Wonderful experience at Il Principe Restaurant in front of Pompei City Hall. Owner and staffs were very friendly and had good hospitality. Dinner was very delicious and I was interested in the recipe created 2000 years ago in Pompei. Marvelous!

Had been here previously and enjoyed a delicious pasta with clams so I brought my family here when I returned. Food was great. Calamari was fresh and local and very well cooked. The pasta was as good as I remember it. Overall a very enjoyable meal but definitely one of the more expensive places in Pomepi.

We ate here on nighr while staying in Pompei. Everything about the meal was yummy! We first got a rice and cheese ball that was compliments of the chef and it was delicious! We got the ravioli and stake. Both meals were so tasty! The sauces were made fresh and really complimented the meal. Then we got a hazelnut desert... More

We had a nice table outside. Our drinks were served very quickly and after ordering our meal we had a complimentary appetizer. Khader ordered a pasta with walnuts and ansjovies. The pasta was NOT al dente and you had to concentrate at finding any trace of the ansjovies. My wife praised her salad and added "I Got all the ansjovies.... More

A fabulous birthday meal tonight. The service was really good. The food delicious. The ambience excellent. A shame we didn't see the resident dog Hermes. Expensive meal but worth it. Thank you.

We sat outside at lunchtime and had a really lovely seafood mixed pasta, staff were extremely helpful and friendly and average priced. The inside of the restaurant is beautifully decorated with a grand piano inside, this would be a lovely place to go for a romantic meal or a special occasion.

The name says it all: The Prince. We truly are like princes at Il Principe. My wife and I were there with our 18 month old son and even though this place is rather chic, they welcomed us with a smile. The food and service were both impeccable.

Our Amanda Tours guide took us here for lunch on April 18th. She spoke with the owner and was able to get us in without a reservation. Very stylish restaurant without the pretentiousness. The wait staff were very friendly and attentive, I especially liked Marco who was gracious enough to allow me to have my picture taken with him. The... More
