The food was superb, all 4 of us super impressed with our food: amazing garlic bread, shared entrees, 4 different mains and 4 different desserts - all so yum!
The drinks were reasonably priced, and the cocktails were great!
Service was with a smile, and we didn't have to wait long for our food.
We didn't feel rushed, it is a large area and probably due to COVID restrictions well spaced out - so not noisy at all.
I can't wait to come back to try the Friday afternoon happy hour!
Thanks for a great night.
Food and service were great but it was so very noisy.
Some sound insulation would improve the ambience enormously.
Such a terrific little restaurant where the quality of the food makes you feel like Nonna is in the kitchen cooking for you. Great service - attentive but not over the top. Terrific atmosphere - definitely recommend.
The entrees were delicious and the pastas amazing. Leave enough room for dessert the tiramisu is next level!
Lovely food and great service. We felt very looked after. My ravioli was particularly delicious.
Amazing food, atmosphere and staff. What more comic you ask for!!
A pre-mothers day dinner
Handmade pasta was absolutely perfect and so delicious. Garlic bread was incredible.
Very friendly service- it feels like having dinner with family and friends.
Everything we ordered was abosolutely delicious. A table of three and we had the pumpkin and ricotta ravioli and two of us had the gamberi and we shared the pear salad....absolutely magnificent
Very tasty homemade pasta selections. Gnocchi Osso Bucco was buonissimo!!! Very nice people make the experience relaxed. Nice to have a bevi outside and comfortable inside for a meal. Good value.
Excellent wine selection
Thoroughly enjoyed our night.
Had been meaning to come here for a while now and I should have come sooner! Wow what a gem! Beautiful food with amazing service and ambience!!
Lovely food and excellent service. A bit noisy but not too big a problem.
Would recommend Pompei.
Thanks Graham, We appreciate the kind feedback!
We really enjoyed the whole experience. Excellent wait staff,, Food great, a really good experience, thanks to all at Pompei. We’ll be back!!
Thank you so much Liz! We really appreciate such lovely feedback, we're so glad you enjoyed everything!
The pumpkin ravioli is the best I have ever eaten 😊
Thank you so much for the lovely review, we appreciate it! :)
We were a group of 6 and really disappointed by the food. The food was either really bland, or super salty. Whilst the food wasn’t enjoyable (aside from the antipasto), the drinks were the highlight.
Cannot fault the service of the staff. They were wonderful and great with my child.
Really disappointed as I’d been recommended to go there. Maybe it was an off type of night, but 5 out of 6 of us didn’t enjoy the food and the 1 out of 6 was a 3 year old who doesn’t like anything 🤷🏻♀️
We're so sorry you didn't enjoy your food, we take pride in having high quality dishes and this is very uncommon! Let us know if there's anything we can do to reconcile this experience :)
4 of us dined there over the weekend, food was excellent especially the homemade pasta. Fantastic and friendly wait staff, authentic Wine list with a great selection of Italian beers and wines as well as Australian offerings.
Great place for a quiet quality Italian meal. Good menu and it’s done well. Service and ambiance top class. Good mix of drinks and nice outdoor space. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.
Excellent service and the best gnocchi I’ve had in a long time. Had a really lovely young girl serve us with impeccable manners. Will be returning.
Refreshing cocktail. Home made pasta amazing. Osso bucco tender and flavoursome. Pumpkin and ricotta ravioli a good comfort food dish. Panacotta and lemon curd dessert perfect. More yummy dishes to try next time.
Thank you Anne for such a lovely review!
Not an extensive menu, however the food was fantastic. Could do with some more decor
Very good service on arrival and throughout the night. Making us feel comfortable at all times, didn't have to wait for food or drinks. Everything went smoothly and timing was spot on.
Thank you for such a lovely review, we're so glad happy you enjoyed your evening :)
Great food and a very good wine choice, loved it
We're so glad you enjoyed your dinner with us! :)
Amazing service, food everything in general, great place!
Thank you Debbie for such lovely feedback!
For a new restaurant just starting out, these guys did everything right. Food was excellent and well-priced. There's a choice between imported or homemade pasta – pay the extra couple of bucks and get homemade. Decent selection of cocktails and the staff were all super lovely. Pretty sure we met the owner too, who seemed like a top fella. All round great evening!
We really appreciate such kind words, and we're so happy you enjoyed your evening with us, Matt!
Totally lives up to it’s reputation- clean fresh and well set out with amazing homemade pasta dishes to die for. The staff couldn’t have been nicer and I thoroughly recommend this place
Thank you for the lovely feedback Sue, we're so glad you had a great experience with us! :)
Food and service was excellent. We shared our dishes so that we could experience a broader taste. Still have nany items to try!
We're so happy you enjoyed your meal with us!
Delicious homemade pasta. Just the right selection for the menu. Smallish menu so everything is done really well. Really glad I went and will be taking friends in the future.
Thank you so much Anna! We appreciate your kind words :)
Food was delicious, and great customer service, thank you
Thank you very much for your kind review! :)
With a relaxed atmosphere it is a great place to eat as it caters for all (with kids menu). By just focussing on some tasty pasta dishes they can do it well. Pumpkin ravioli with sage butter was a treat, with the pear salad as a refreshing accompaniment on a warm night. Nice outdoor eating area for the summer nights coming up too
Thank you so much Robina, we really appreciate your kind review! - Kai
Food was beautiful! Service was quick, kind and professional. We will definitely visit again
Thank you so much, we're so glad you enjoyed your experience with us! :)
Outstanding! The food was amazing, and the service was great. We will be telling friends about this place and will definitely be returning 😁
Thank you so much Hannah for your kind words, we can't wait to have you back!
