I personally love their pizza. It’s exactly like the pizza I had in Naples and tastes incredibly authentic. Same with the limoncello. I’ve heard people are displeased with how the restaurant is run so many of my friends don’t go here out of principle. But for me, the food is too good to stay away.

There are two great pizza places in Durham, and Pompieri is one of them! I make sure to stop by everytimr I'm in the area.
Every time I visit it's a great experience. Pizzas are artisan, super thin crust. Not your normal blase options.
Experiment with what they offer on the menu, it's all excellent and worth it! Make sure the White Florian is one of the pies you order, a must. Local craft beers on tap are always good, too.
Plenty of seating, and place has a fun, u ique feel, set in the Durham historic downtown.
Great and friendly service, so be sure to give a tip. Then walk around town to burn of the calories, and have an ice cream at the local I e cream shop (which often has a line).

I really love this place. Their pizzas are beyond good. I ordered the araicini (Fried risotto balls with marinara) , Margherita, and their signature pizza the Pompieri. The flavor on each was really good, and would recommend them all. I am definitely coming back for more. I will have to try some new pizzas.

Ten stars. Eleven. This is the best pizza, and best service. Locals are so lucky to live nearby such a great pizzeria! In progress photos only, 'cause it was too good to hesitate for a snapshot!

Finally I have had a good true fire oven cooked pizza with quality and perfection done right.
My last visit to a place similar to this was Brix, it was horrible and I still will not go back. You should never see your crust dry anywhere near the center.
This place had it covered, and just the right amount of toppings.
Great job guys.
Bartender was very helpful and friendly.
I will be back.

Nice little pizza joint located in an old fire house. Pizzas are personal-sized (12 inches or so), and use delicious ingredients. Drinks are served in mason jars, which is fun. They also have some good alcoholic options (their margarita was pretty tasty). I would definitely return here.

Walk up counter, quick service, delicious pizza. Kids loved their red sauce pie. Wife and I were equally pleased with the shroom pie w caramelized onions and goat cheese. Cool little nook w toys for the kiddos. Pie crust charred but not overcooked. 9/10

Found after a quick walk downtown waiting for my room to be ready at Unscripted- great find. Wonderful pizza delivered to the table unsliced with a pair of scissors to cut your own and a nice cold beer. Cool friendly space. And very hospitable staff. Will be back

The food selection and beer selection were great. The server took his time with us and was extremely friendly and courteous as well as the rest of the staff. The food came out quick and was great. Was a great find!

I love this place!
The gluten-free, dairy-free (creamy cashew 'cheese)' pizza was wonderful, and looked like a work of art!
(Toppings: fresh basil, mushrooms, farm fresh egg, and chili oil)
The salad and polenta with collards were fantastic, too :-)
My husband really likes the Drunken Horse pizza
