This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we are so glad we took their advice. Beautiful food, excellent service - we ate there twice in our 3 day stay in Pompei. My first meal was a simple dish of grilled seafood. It was delicious- very fresh and beautifully cooked. My husband, who is not usually a fish eater, chose... More

Our hotel arranged this meal and while the food was OK, it was overshadowed by the absolute worst waiter we encountered on our trip--and there's only one, so he should know who he is. We were treated with disdain and complete inattention to detail. We live in France so we encounter the occasional rude waiter--but this man was in a... More

At the Garum, via Mazzini expect to be treated with respect. Expect the food to be good along with the large selection of wines. The only problem was eating to much. Some problem. This was our third visit to Pompeii and the Garum Restaurant. No change, good food well cooked. The chef/ owner will come out of the Kitchen to... More

The place has an air of 90s chic, which somehow hints to a rather unadventurous tasting experience. Thankfully good food is good food, nothing to do with fashion, and it great food they serve in Garum.That said, they do add a modern twist to it, just so to keep it interesting without verging on cellular gastro (and all the better...

The TripAdvisor reviews were right about the Garum Restaurant in Pompeii. We ate there twice, once in the evening and then about 10 days later we took a detour on the way back to the airport to try it at lunchtime. On both occasions we were very impressed. We could suggest particular dishes, but I guess they are all good.... More

I visit Italy at least twice every year and the food in Garum was nothing special. The staff is nice and friendly. Starters were quite tasty but not the best they could achieve with fresh fish. What is surprising to me is that tuna steak was not fresh, which is the biggest complaint. All in all, nothing special, I am... More

We had just arrived in Italy from the USA and were staying in the small modern city of Pompei. On a weeknight, both the town and the restaurant were fairly quiet. We arrived at Garum without a reservation and were seated right away. The menu focuses on seafood but offers meat dishes as well. We were presented with a beautiful... More

Our Hotel recommended this restaurant - the food was good quality and the service very good. The only factor that ruined it and we ended up leaving without dessert was a family where the child was playing a loud game on her computer. It would have been appropriate for the Manager/Waiter to ask the parents to turn down the volume... More

We visited this place for dinner based on a tip from our local taxi driver, and were not disappointed! Lovely food, great prices and fabulous service. We especially loved the salted crispy cod on porcini mushrooms and the sea bass stuffed with potatoes. This is a must-do place in Pompeii

We just had lunch here with 2 that was the best we had in our 1,5 week trip. What a great place with a good atmosphere and extremely helpful staff. We started with a local rose spumante called Joi. My girl had a primo with mozzarella, shrimp and olives, I had some Bolognese sausage with cheese and potatoes. As primo... More
