Mercato Pompeiano is a gastronomic project developed in Pompeii, which today counts on the restaurant (in via Sacra 13) and on the pizzeria (in via Sacra 8). It all stemmed from our passion: three old friends, Carlo, Gaspare and Giovanni, lovers of good food. Here we have realized our dream, that of embarking on a journey through the goodness of our beautiful country, comparing the territories of Italy, among wines, dishes and quality raw materials.
To do this, we were inspired by the merchants who once frequented the Macellum, the market of ancient Pompeii: those brave adventurers had only one goal, which is to bring the best of what the Empire and the world could offer to the city. In the same way, today we want to bring the best of Italian food to contemporary Pompeii.
Mercato Pompeiano, in fact, is not just a restaurant or just a pizzeria, it is the place where our design idea is realized: in the two locations, gastronomic excellence, carefully selected and from every corner of Italy, is highlighted. Meats, cheeses, pasta, wines, and even flours, oils, mozzarella, aromas, cured meats, beers, recipes, flavours and cultures: many diversities that represent the top of our country and that find their synthesis in the recipes, dishes, pizzas, fried foods and whims we prepare.
The oven, the kitchen and the pantry are visible. All the ingredients and raw materials we put on our plates can be purchased and taken home, to continue making the experience of Italian food unique.
We love diversity and we like to transform it into harmony: it can be seen in the welcoming dining room with a refined design, which also makes the contrasts between materials such as iron, wood and stone, between “ancient” and modern, coherent, or in the glasses, all different, you can find on the table.
The floors with mosaic texture and the walls with Vesuvian stone are an ideal homage to the culture of our roots, the perpetuation of tradition in a modern restaurant and pizzeria in step with the times, in which the Italian cuisine of today is exalted , also thanks to the particular types of cooking used, also of ancient inspiration.
In the restaurant, for example, we use a Josper oven, which combines the advantages of the oven with those of a grill, and the Kamado, an oval-shaped oven entirely in ceramic, which is characterized by its great versatility of use. Likewise in the pizzeria, the oven is specially designed for the type of dough that our master pizza makers prepare.
