What a pleasant surprise! My wife and I ordered salads and 2 individual pizzas. Our salads were huge. My wife ordered the arugula and pear salad, enough for 2and only comment was thT it could have used a touch of goat cheese. I had the caeser salad which was also a meal in itself and although very good could have been a little less creamy. Our pizza were the most authentic I've had in the US!!! As good as my favorites in Sorrento. My wife's was covered in arugula and Parma prosciutto and my Diablo was made to perfection

This restaurant was extremely amazing. There idea of taking your taste buds across an ocean to Italy is a complete success. There simplest foods are filled with flavor and and the taste of hand made deliciousness. They offer many choices to choose from! You can sit next to there wood fire oven and watch your food be made, which gives you an experience to cherish for a long time! There food is very delicious! We had an amazing time and we suggest you try this restaurant as well!

What a great experience. Had dinner here for the first time tonight and everything was superb, from the octopus appetizer to the panna cotta for dessert. Our server, Adrian, was the best! We will definitely be back for more.

Superb dining at reasonable prices. A delightful new eatery in our Coral Ridge neighbored. Enjoyed intimate dining with a wide selection of items on the menu.


The food was delicious but it is not fair to have one server care for the whole restaurant. That is what dropped it from a five to a four star. The server tried his best but when we left there were at least ten tables. Not fair to him or his colleague who helped clear the rables

Fantastic authentic restaurant with excellent menu of finely crafted food. One of our new favorite restaurants. Warm friendly and efficient service. Everything we have tried tasted like we were transported to Italy. The pizza and gnocchi are off the charts delicious!

Having grown up in Naples, Italy, I know good Neapolitan pizza. We started with the burrata and had a margherita pizza to finish. Really good!! The owner brought us a complimentary limoncello for dessert. Really enjoyable.

Pompei79 came highly recommended and it did not disappoint. It started with amazing fresh warm bread and fresh salad, the food, amazing. My fav was the purses with Gorgonzola and Pear in butter and Sage, oh my! The service and owner, top self. My only complaint was the portions were too large, LOL, took half of my dinner both nights this week home for a second yumola dinner!!! Thank you Pompei79, will visit ever time in town for sure!!!

Best Italian food I've had by far. Parents couldn't stop talking about it and now that i have come for the first time... Mesmerizing, everything from the in house bread to the main entrees was spectacular. Google only has five stars but I wish I could give it more!

What a neighborhood gem. My husband and I ate here for the first time tonight. We were looking for a quality place close to home and found Pompei79. We were so pleased. The service was great, the food was delicious and we will definitely be coming back here again!

We went there for the first time tonight after hearing people rave about the food. We all had the Caesar Salad which was just perfect. There were four of us and two had chicken Parm. One had the Chicken Piccata and I had the Linguini with Clams which was absolutely outstanding. Made only fresh clams. The portions were great. The others also all raved about their dishes. The service is perfect and not rushed. They could not have done any thing better. This is now one of my top five local restaurants.


It was a wonderful evening sitting outside enjoying our meal. The music was the perfect volume which added to the ambiance. We started with the caprese salad that had a nice balsamic reduction. I had the parmigiana pizza that had just the right amount of eggplant. My husband had the capriciosa that was fully loaded. The crust was tasty and cooked to perfection. Their sauce was nicely seasoned. The wait staff was very attentive and accommodating to a special request. The limoncello rounded out the meal.


we passed by and decided to try Pompei79, they seem a new site, the place is tastefully arranged, it is not cheap, but it is worth to try it, we had a nice salad and the ravioli, the wine was perfect and it is a place to return and eat the pizza that looks so good....the crusts they give you are very tasty, so I presume the pizza is done very good

Lori Vajda

Four of us came here for the first time and the experience and food we're wonderful. The restaurant is cozy and while there were not a lot of people eating here, I do believe the place will be packed as word spreads of the delicious meal the chef creates.

Steve Cochrane

The food was excellent. I haven't had pizza this good since I was in Italy. our group of 4 had aru gula salad with pears, raisins, and balsamic vinaigrette. the staff was friendly and efficient. I can't wait to go back.


The service was friendly and promt. The pasta a friend had looked delicious. Someone else at the table had soup and said it was great. I had white pizza with cheese and truffle. It was one of the best I have had. Must try. They also have a good wine selection

Dined here last night. The food is absolutely delicious!! From the fresh baked bread made in the coal fired oven to the creamy and authentic tasting cannoli, it met and exceeded our expectations... We are big fans and loyal patrons of the sister restaurant Osteria Acqua Farina, so we were eager and curious to try Pompei 79. Enjoyed the Carbonara Pizza which is an item that you cannot get at Osteria and just loved it! Another item that was ordered was the mixed seafood fra diavolo pasta that was spicy and had very tasty seafood in the dish. The service was attentive and friendly and we are already Looking forward to returning to this delightful restaurant. Congratulations on a job well done!
