As I have said in 2013, I have been eating here for over 40 years and was never disappointed. This time around, I was. The food was good, but the clams arregenta were all filling. The service was abysmal. Forgot a meal, then brought the wrong meal and then corrected it, by which time the person had no desire to... More

My family and I continue to visit Pompei, whenever there is a special occasion to celebrate or just to have a fine lunch. Their prix fix menu selection is second to none and their food is always top shelf, . Where else can you get soup, salad, appetizer, coffee and desert for under $20. They even provide a free glass...

My family and I were invited to a bridal shower at Pompei. The catering room that we were in was exquisite. We were surrounded by open air windows that lit up the room beautifully. Food was not too bad either. For starters, fried calamari, meatballs, mozzarella sticks.. and then a garden salad followed by pasta. All were pretty tasty. For... More

The food was very good. Penne with vodka sauce was fantastic. Chicken Marsala not so good. Gravy was watery, like soup. Chicken was floating in it. Service is exceptional. Place is kind of old fashioned. It needs some renovation.

Went to a benefit on 10/18/15 with over 100 attendees. Some of the meal (snacks, salmon, dessert) was very good. The salad was not crispy, vegetables were overcooked and last but not least, the San Marino Pinot Grigio wine was substituted with a very sweet, lousy, cheaper wine. I couldn't even drink it.

Anything we've had for dinner has always been delicious, righ down to the bread. The Soups are chefs speciality, the entrees change weekly, price-fix. What a bargain, glass of wine, soup or salad and 5 or 6 entree choices,& 4 or 4 deserts choices
