Fodor's Review

Cheap, cheerful, and fast—what's not to love about Pompei? Little Italy's only casual café with a strong kitchen specializes in square slices of pizza, each under $4, with toppings ranging from shredded onions and sausage to basil and tomato. One to two easily makes a meal. Between the University of Illinois Chicago students and the Rush University Medical Center workers, Pompei is jammed at lunch. If you can tolerate the self-serve system at dinner, the evening hours are more relaxing. If pizza's not your thing, salad, generous sandwiches, and handmade pastas are also on the menu. And keep your eye out for Pompei's Near North and Lakeview locations.
