Stopped on our way home today, and we weren't disappointed. Yum! The bread was warm, the salad was cold, and the pasta was cooked well. Both my husband and I enjoyed our lunch and couldn't finish our meals. I brought enough with me for at least one more meal, maybe two. Restaurant was clean, servers were friendly, and the food...

It's not often I eat Italian food in San Antonio, but this is certainly the restaurant for it! Upon entry you feel you have travelled to Rome with the vividly painted copulas. The menu offers numerous Italian dishes with enough options to entice any guest. Portion sizes are large, which is likely why the prices can be a bit expensive.... More

We chose this restaurant as a family dinner gathering and a centralized location. The service and atmosphere was good and friendly. The food was good Italian, not the greatest but quite good, with good bread and oil and a dinner salad.

This was our first visit to the Pompeii Grill and we were not disappointed. Based upon a review by a local restaurant critic I had the Chicken Napolitana, others had Osso Buco, Grilled Tilapia and Linguini Carbonara. These dishes were all cooked to perfection. The Ceasar Salads were pretty bland - not sure if the restaurant makes its own dressing,... More

Went there with friends and enjoyed the food and the service was great but the place is depressingly dark even during the day. It was dark to the point I could barely see what my food looked like. Unless they brighten this place up I won't be back.

Everything here is delicious. I've never had a meal I'd criticize. I love that their tomato sauce is not overcooked or too salted/ over seasoned. The staff and owners are so friendly and accommodating. Can't believe I'm just now reviewing this establishment as, I've been dining with them since back in the day when they were cafe milanos on Nagodoches... More

This time had an individual pizza and beer at the bar. Fast and courteous service and the pizza was quite good and quite large. Had to get a doggy bag!

I had chicken Parmesan and my wife had grilled chicken.... The salad that first came was very lame.... The meal was OK; my wife's grilled chicken was better.... The best part was the bread and olive oil... The service was friendly and OK... Maybe it was an off night for them, I don't know. This was our first time here...

We ate here in a large group for a wedding and the service was fantastic. The restaurant was very clean and up kept. The food was good, but was typical Italian food.

The Ceasar Salad was terrible, tasted like dirt. The Lobster Ravioli tasted more like Krab than lobster. The seafood sauce was ridiculously cheesy. The ravioli was made in house but poorly. So thick it was like they used lasagna noodles for it. The tomato sauce was one note: tomato. No other seasonings. The service was slow.

Cassie, Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience. I will be having a discussion with the staff to discuss the issues you mentioned above with the ravioli etc. I know that is not normally the take we get on that dish, so I want to ensure that we get it corrected for the future. Thanks again for... More
