Friendly service - helpful, not overly attentive, vibe of 'glad to help',
We ordered spaghetti bolognese for him, raviola ricotta with mushrooms in white wine cream sauce and greek salad. Al dente handmade pasta, amazing mushrooms, gorgeous rich creamy sauce. Partner liked the spag bol - fresh tomatoes in sauce, not tinned. The Greek salad was crisp and fresh with a creamy feta cheese.
Bread, olives and a mayo/gherkin type dip (?remoulade) were delivered intially - the bread was fresh and yummy, the remoulade was nice, but the olives were fab - the dressing on them really complimented the olive taste well.

Carafe of house red set off the whole meal nicely.

Ambience - bare wood tables and chairs - homely, unpretentious, welcoming.

Friendly and attentive service alongside a nice atmosphere didn't make up for the terrible food at Pompa. My starter, a mixed veggie antipasti, included roast vegetables so bitter as to be inedible, and two puddles of slurry passing respectively as hummus and tsatziki, but tasting like neither. My main, lasagna, achieved the miracle of a single consistent texture: beef and noodles alike were like jarred baby food. And the whole mess tasted like ketchup - the so-called ragu was far too sweet. I was very, very disappointed.

Lovely place with fast service. We got table without reservation and were served quickly.
Food was delicious! We tried lasagne, black pasta and pasta with grilled chicken. All was served fast and hot, as pretty big portions.
Good value for money and I really recommend it :)

PS: there is cat wandering around the restaurant which was adorable for us, as she let us pet her but probably not good option for those allergic on cats
