Great pizzas, pasta is average, but their meats and risottos are good. I wouldn't classify most of the dishes as particularly Italian, more like generally European, but good quality and tasty nonetheless.

The ambiance and the atmosphere are great. But unfortunately, the food isn't all that great. I dont mind paying top money if the food is good, but this felt just average, even though we tried a large variety of food. A bit disappointing

Tucked away in Shapes gym and next door to the old Karachi Race Course, Pompeii is a gorgeous place to eat. Overlooking a beautiful garden and an old colonial building, it really is a romantic place to spend ones evenings. And if you're lucky enough to be there in a Karachi rain, it's heavenly. The food is (almost) Italian, the... More

Good for lunch, good for dinner - love the ambiance. Food is just about reasonable. Staff is just Ok friendly - when you see other restaurants getting ahead on that, you expect more. Tables can be far apart than current.

Pompei, located at the old side of Karachi. Located inside Shapes gym just has something about it. The place, the food, the ambience, it's a classy place to go where you go when you're dying for an extremely heart touching meal or perfect ambience. It's my ultimate choice for any celebration with a best friend. Also, how can you go... More

Good selection of steak including imported meat. Local steak is good too and price is very reasonable, especially the one with blue cheese, yum! Wood fire pizza is good too. Ambient is good, very cosy and very dark. Outside sitting can be a bit chilly in a cold night.

Although this place is a little heavy on the pocket, their food and ambiance makes it worth it. The best place to sit is outside - has a beautiful garden view. A big fan of their Italian bread pudding, Creme Brulee and chocolate lava cake.

A relaxing afternoon late lunch. We started with the Spinach and the Feta cheese Salad, Stuffed Mushrooms and Insalata Caprese! All were delicious. For the main course the Ravioli was good along with my Red snapper. My friend ordered the Steak with Mushroom sauce on the side and he was quite satisfied. The Chocolate brownie With Caramel flavoured Ice cream... More
