    The two main dining rooms, Il Palladio and Le Fontane, are located aft with large ocean-view windows. There are two seatings for dinner, served by top-of-the-line Italian stewards. Guests in suites and deluxe grades are assigned seats in a quieter section of the restaurant. Dishes range from traditional and tasty Mediterranean fare, to the most refined international recipes.

    There is the "Always Available" menu, which includes spaghetti and grilled chicken, beefsteak or salmon. The alternative specialty restaurant is Kaito Sushi Bar, an authentic Japanese venue with an extensive, outstanding menu. For a quick breakfast or lunch choose the lido Cafeteria Villa Pompeiana buffet, offering the utmost quality and variety in Italian and international cuisine, or the pool-deck fast-food grill and pizzeria.
