This is the place to go in los altos for unassuming Italian. Good hearty dishes and reasonably priced wines. Great to sit outside when good weather.

I was meeting a friend for dinner on a Friday night in downtown Los Altos with no reservations. We strolled around and Pompeii was the only one that had availability at 6:15 PM. We sat in the area that used to be the donut shop. The acoustics were not very good. It was a bit loud due to a large... More

This is a great small restaurant that has excellent entrees. We've had the gnocchi, fettucine and more. It's been awhile, but it is an excellent restaurant with great staff. Enjoy!

Had a lovely dinner with some business associates and really enjoyed their fish entree. Always pick Red Snapper when it's on the menu and I wasn't disappointed here. Not too fancy, but food was wonderful.

I really enjoyed this place. It's relatively informal -- not a lot of ambiance. The service was great -- friendly, quick, and informative. The variety of options was incredible. There were actually three menus -- the standard menu, a panini menu, and a list of specials. Between the four of us, we had a caprese panini, chicken parm, short ribs,... More

We had dinner recently on a spur of the moment. We had not been there in a while and it was wonderful to see familiar wait staff, friendly as always. We've had many dishes there, pasta, pizza, fish, lamb shank, etc. We've never been disappointed, I especially love how accommodating they are with requests (I don't eat parsley and they... More

We have been to Pompeii lots of times and even order out. They will make you whatever you want, Italian style. Totally worth it!

We were in the mood for Italian food and headed to Pompeii for dinner. Two of us got the capellini pomodoro and it was great. The salads were also fresh and well prepared. The meatballs were also a hit with the youngest member of our group. This was a nice place to dine!

My wife always orders the Caesar salad and the clam appetizer. She splits these with our daughter when she can meet us there. I have enjoyed Chicken Marsala, various pizza and so many other dishes I cannot remember. This is one of the top go to places when in Los Altos.

We have gone by Pompeii many times over the last few years. Last night we had dinner with another couple. We had very good service and a nice dinner. The place was full on a Monday night. I had the calzone, which was huge and tasty along with a caprese salad which was great. Others had the ravioli with sage... More
