To dine really well around Pompeii, you have to go into (and stay overnight in) Naples or Sorrento. If you’re doing Pompeii as a day trip, skip the so-so restaurants around Pompeii itself and pack a picnic before you set off from Rome. Of course, if you’re in a bind and need a quick bite, a sizeable food service bar within the ruins serves basic pastas and panini.
