I recently ate at Pompeii for the first time in months, and loved this place growing up as a kid. I was good friends with the previous owner Nick, and we shared our share of laughs together. He was the perfect owner, always entertaining

The first thing you notice about Pompeii is how unlikely its location is: a nondescript strip mall. Don't let that stop you from enjoying this gem of a restaurant. The owner, Nick L. is funny, gracious, exuberant and entertaining. He's also been in the business long enough to know when to amuse you and when to leave you alone.

Then there's the food--both northern and southern are equally represented and are brilliantly prepared. This is down-home cooking at its finest. Lots of specials, a fine wine list and reasonable prices make Pompeii the type of restaurant that is rapidly disappearing: Unpretentious, inviting and soul satisfying. Bravo, Pompeii!

Italian art songs and Sicilian love ballads play discretely from the sound system. Nick often sings with them--a hoot!

We love going to Pompeii. Pompeii is family owned, just a small, cozy Italian restaurant. They have delicious food and their pasta is homemade. Prices are very reasonable. Service is great. The owners like to walk around and visit with the patrons, sometimes they also sing.

Don't miss this great place.

WOW! Talk about a hidden gem. This place is located in a strip mall and looks ok from the outside, but don't be fooled. The food is top-shelf. I would put it up against most of the italian joints in ALL OF CHICAGO. Authentic recipes straight from Naples. And the pizza... probably some of the best I ever had (and folks, I love great food). All of this plus the entertainment of the owner. This guy has personality and will usual come up to the table to chat. I'm almost tempted to say its location is a drawback but you know, its not. I love those gems that most don't know about. Head over there immediately!!!

Pompei has been in Terramere Plaza for more than twenty years. Nick is more than friendly, and his children (adults, all) are friendly and continue the tradition he began! The food is authentic, our family especially enjoys pizza and

Pompeii is a cool and casual restaurant that you can go to with your family, friends, or even with your date. Basically you come in here give your order and get a table number. Then you get your drinks, go to your table, put your number on
