LOVE IT – I go to Pompeii, among other Italian restaurants around town, and I have to say that this place is a gem. The food is always fantastic, and the price is almost laughable...food this great would cost you an arm and a leg at Paesano's or Aldo's, which Im starting to think are a bit overrated compared to here. My wife and I can order wine, and a 3-course meal and the check will still be under $50
On top of that, I always have to take home leftover....you can never finish their huge portions of food.
I can go on and on about how beautiful the place is, too.
pros: incredible food, great prices.
cons: fair-great service, depending on who your server is. When there's a big crowd on Fridays and Saturdays, it can be pretty loud.
The Worst Service In San Antonio – When my friend and I first got to the restraunt, we were greeted very promptyl. We then sat down and were asked what we wanted to drink, WE WAITED 15 minutes before we recieved our drinks. We had our bread before anything. Then our food came 20 minutes later. People who sat down 10 minutes after we did recieved their salads and drink and food LONG before we did. Overall I am very disapointed with this restaurant, for $11 I got the worst Service in the whole City of San Antonio. Next time I will definatley not choose to go here when I am craving ITALIAN!
Don't miss it – Grilled salmon Pompeii. If you don't love it, you are on the wrong planet.
Not impressed – My impression is that Pompeii aspires to be like Macaroni Grill, but can't measure up. I will say that the service was pretty good; our waitress filled the bread more than once and was prompt in bringing our food. The bread was very yummy, but the rest of the food made the experience unenjoyable overall. The salad dressing had a strange flavor I couldn't identify. I swear the manicotti (which i normally love) came out of a can - the sauce and filling were totally flavorless and the noodles were very overcooked. It reminded me of what my college dorm used to serve. My husband's alfredo sauce was runny, like. At least the food was pretty cheap, but still I came away feeling overcharged.
Good waiter – My husband and I went at end of October and found the food to be wonderful. The bread was crusty on outside and soft on inside, nice and hot. DELISH!!! We had the most wonderful, pleasant waiter. His name was Floyd. I will definitely ask for him next time. He was always there to fill our drinks or bring more bread. Very amusing, also. We really enjoyed our time there. Next time we will go a little later in evening so we can enjoy the live music/singing that starts at 7:00
Excellent Italian American – This is a good American Italian restaurant. I had a dish with artichokes and chicken with mushrooms in a wine sauce. It was wonderful, and the portion was enough to easily satisfy two hungery people, and I'm a fat girl...LOL! It came with a side of pasta with garlic herb butter on it. It was so good I could have just ordered it to eat and nothing else. The tiramisu was ok. Not the best, but definately not the worst. The waitress wasn't very attentive, but still tip worthy. I would go back next time I have about $25 to spend on one dinner, and I would definately recommend this place to anyone.
