"My lunch was the appetizer portion of Mussels Marinara. Delicious! And plenty! Added a Caesar Salad with lots of anchovies. Yum! My dining partner had Chicken Alfredo and reported that it was very tasty. I didn't taste it because i was still sopping up the marinara with the second loaf of hot bread brought to the table. Service was attentive but not intrusive. (Important.) My second visit and I'll drive out here again and again.“

“A good Italian restaurant!  Our party of eight were all pleased.  To start off, you are served bread with dipping oil, which was really good.  Also a house or Caesar salad comes with the meal which was nice.  They have a pretty big menu with specialties like seafood and pizzas too.  The portions are very big for a decent price.  Service was good. ”

“Had my first experience at Pompeii Italian Grill on Saturday night.  It was also a first date with someone new.  Overall it was a great first experience on both fronts.  There is a nice waiting area as soon as you enter the restaurant, with couches and wooden benches.  Upon entering the main area of the restaurant there is a host station to the right.  The young lady working there was very friendly.  I was a little early so I waited on one of the couches.  When my date got there we were immediately seated.  It was a little loud in the dining area, as it is one big area, basically.  But I really didn't mind because the general ambiance was great.  Tiled floors, lighting, and nice tables with candles made the area attractive and inviting.

We were brought a delicious square loaf of bread not too long after being seated, after our drink order was taken.  The bread was warm, soft on the inside and flavorful.  Of course we were also provided the oil oil to use with the bread.  Later on in the meal we were even offered another loaf.  Nice surprise.  They must go through a lot of bread on a busy night.  This was not my date's first time there and recommended a couple of dishes that she enjoyed.  However, when the waitress was running down the specials for the night, she caught my attention with the Chicken Napolitana - grilled chicken, ricotta, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms and vegetables.  It was so good! flavorful, and served with a side of pasta.  My date ordered the Chicken Parmesan. Complete the plates with a few glasses of wine and a good salad, and the meal was worth 5 stars...I will definitely be returning to try more of the menu.”
