“Excellent restaurant near ancient Pompeii”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

The restaurant is located a few minutes walk from the exit of ancient Pompeii. Both the service and food were very good. An English menu would have been helpful.

“Great first evening in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

After a long overnight flight from Canada, we were looking forward to our first dinner in Italy at Add'u Mimi, based on TA reviews that my wife and I had read prior to our trip. We were not disappointed. Upon arrival we were walked through the front of the restaurant to the rear, and were seated at a table near the very back under a covering of grape leaves overhead, and being dimmly lit with some stone walls, it was exactly what I envisioned. A waiter brought some refreshing water, and a basket of fresh bread. We ordered the red house wine which was quite good, and I believe it was only 5E for a litre. Our meal consisted of an order of bruschetta, a caprese salad( tomatoe, fresh young mozzarella slices 1/4" thick, basil & olive oil), a plate of grilled vegetables...and my wife ordered the fresh bass and I had the mixed seafood grill. Both were very good. While Roberto took our order, throughout the meal there were several other wait staff who looked after us, but while they spoke very little English, it was never a problem. After our meal, Roberto brought us a wonderful pear dessert (a torte?), along with 2 of his home made fennel liquers, to finish off our meal. These were both 'on the house'. Our bill for this wonderful evening was 50E. Had we been staying in Pompei a second night, we would have returned to try some other dishes. This was a very memorable first night in Italy thanks to Add'u Mimi.

“10 minute walk from the Pompeii ruins - well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I have reviewed our holiday in Ravello so on the way back to Naples airport we decided to visit Pompeii, a great experience I might add! So we look to trusted trip advisor to find us a nice lunch. We were not too sure how far it was from the ruins so got in a taxi, the tour people around and taxi driver wanted us to eat opposite the ruins and told us it was a 3km walk to Add'u Mimi....we ignored the hassle and made our way there.....

Well I can tell you that the service given to us by the one of the owners was excellent. The food, wine, everything was perfect. Good quality Italian cuisine, we had a starter each, pasta main, two sweets, some coffee and the bill was around €70. They were so proud of their cuisine they bought us tasters to the table during our meal (FOC I might add)

An absolute must if in the Pompeii area and I would advise either a taxi or the 10 minute walk (thats from the train station entrance to the ruins) is well worth it.
