Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Randomly stopped in for a bite to eat while exploring Stirling, and was great! The owner was very friendly and attentive, and the food was great! I got a sandwich and coffee and my husband got a pastry that was amazing. If you find yourself...in need of food, definitely recommend!More

I visited this fabulous cafe today whilst in Stirling. I was met by the host who took my order and we had a chat about the cafe, he is clearly very proud of his business and so he should be, the cafe was packed!! I...ordered and my meal came in really good time, it was hot and the soup was delicious. The menu described the soup being served with bread , however it was the most delicious ciabatta I've tasted. I finished my meal with a pistachio cannoli, which was simply divine. You must visit here!!!More

Had a superb pizza and arancini for lunch, followed by a proper Italian coffee and a delicious pear cake served warm with cream on the side. All this served by friendly Italian staff. Hope to go again soon!

Amazing spot for lunch and afternoon tea with friends. The meatball dish is a must try! The dessert shelf has lots of options and it's different every week so I always get to try something new.

I was visiting Stirling for work and came previously the night before to see if the cafe was still open. I came early the next morning for breakfast and had a warm welcome from Mario who remembered me from the night previous. Mario offered me...a freshly baked pastry recommending a house special which was just delicious. I also had 2 lavazza coffees which is hard to come across. Mario and Connie made me feel so welcome they are both the nicest people I’ve met in Stirling. I would come back to the city just to come to Caffe Pompei again! Thank you again, Lauren from Liverpool 😊More

We stopped here on our way up further north and we weren’t disappointed. We had the specials off the lunch board, pesto pasta, meatballs and a beef stew, all of which were delicious and very Italian. We couldn’t resist ordering some of the cakes for...afters which were equally yummy!More

Came in to Stirling to find some lunch on the drive up to the cairngorms, had a bit of a walk around with no plan to hand, discounted a number of other places, walking past this restaurant we decided to pop in, and so glad...we did. Initially the plan had been a quick bite and back on the road, but the option of ham and cheese tortellini was to good to turn down, a good sized portion with a good cheese sauce and shavings of parmasan, then we were tempted with chocolate cake (and who's not for tempting whilst on holiday) very good food at a fair price and friendly staff.More

Caffe Pompeii is a fantastic cafe that is well worth a visit. With its great food, friendly staff, and welcoming atmosphere, it's the perfect place to catch up with friends over a cup of coffee. The best homemade Italian pastries and coffee in Stirling.
