There is Italian restaurant called Pempeian Restaurant. They serve Italian food there and the interior deseign is in Pompeian style.

What is Pompei?
It's was an ancient city (and country, culture) located south of Naples, Italy. The best preserved (add Ephesus, Turkey here) of huge ancient ruins I have ever visited.

The origin of ancient Pompeii is still unknown. It is certain that the town was under Etruscan rule in the fifth and sixth centuries BC and Greek rule from 474-425 BC, until it was dominated by the Sannites who enlarged it.

During the Sannite wars, it was allied with Rome and became a Roman colony in 91 BC. It was completely buried by the gigantic explosion of Vesuvius in 79 BC which also destroyed nearby Stabia and Herculaneum.
