In simple terms if you are after a quality Italian meal, this is the place to come to. In our group some had the Calzone, some had pizza, some had pasta – all very good. Special note that the pasta with snapper, prawns, capers, chilli...etc got a big tick of approval. Great variety on the menu so no doubt we will be back. We also hit the dessert – can’t beat a good gelato. It had great atmosphere when we were there, early on it could be a bit noisy for some but we enjoyed it.More

This is a traditional Italian restaurant with a very pleasant decor and ambience. It has a very extensive menu offering a wide range of authentic Italian food. Our group universally praised the quality of their lunches and we agreed that this was the best Italian...meal we had eaten for a long time. All our dishes were delicious, well presented and very generous in size. The wine list offers an extensive range of Australian and Italian wines and both the food and wine were very reasonably priced. The service was prompt, attentive and friendly and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely.More

Had an excellent Saturday night dinner out here. For my daughters 18th birthday dinner. Started with great gelato cocktails. All the food was excellent. The puttanesca, the snapper pasta, the gnocchi and the ravioli. And to finish with pistachio and ricotta gelato. All great. Top...service. The setting nice in a window seat to watch the passing parade of Gould St. It’s Italian food served well, presented well and tasted great.More

Gone down - sooooo disappointed. Used to be amazing. Not this time. Sloppy pizza and greasy pasta. Shame ...

We visited Pompei's on our first visit to Australia. Needless to say, we were very pleased with the warm welcome of its staff. Even more importantly, their pizza was a real Italian treat, perfectly cooked with fresh ingredients. I must mention that the dough they...make, besides being perfectly soft and crunchy at the same time, it is very light on the gut (You will only realize that a few hours later after eating) and it doesn't bloat you as other pizza's doughs do. Lastly, we could not leave without trying their gelato (ice cream), OMG, that is beyond deliciousness, made of the highest ingredients (you don't have to be a chef or gelato experts to say that...your palate will feel that right away at the first scoop). Thank you for the great lunch, and for making us feel home away from home.More

Ate there twice on a recent trip and enjoyed both times very much. Pizza was delicious, service was wonderful, and the gelati superb, especially when choc topped. MY 11 year old thought the Eton Messi was the best dessert of all time.

Great Italian food. Been there three times and every time very satisfied. They have the best gluten free pizza and pastas I have ever had. The non-gluten-free is also great, so is the kids pastas. The prosecco with lemon sorbet and vodka is the perfect...dessert!More
