“Lovely informal restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

We went here on the advice of tripadvisors and loved it. It is small and relaxed, with good service from the single waiter. The bruschetta was really special and the pizzas also good. Locals popped in while we were there, to collect a pizza to take home. Prices were reasonable for Helsinki.

“Charming meal in Helsinki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

My family (husband, 2 boys 9 and 12) were in Helsinki on vacation and looking for a simple dinner. We stumbled on Pompei and had a nice meal there. It's a tiny restaurant that has a mere 14 seats in it with one Italian waiter and one cook. One of my sons had the pizza margarita and the other went for the breaded fish. Both ate everything and were happy, not a small feat. My husband and I both had pasta, nicely done and tasty. The food and drinks were reasonably priced by Helsinki standards and the waiter was genuinely friendly. It was a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of touring the city. Would definitely recommend Pompei for hungary families.

owner and cooks are italian, yet this do not mean that the food is good: i got the starters and the pizza. both were pretty away from being good. the problem is in the very poor selection of the ingredients.

“The pizza is really good! Spaghetti Carbonara excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

With great pleasure to inform you that the miuo more positive opinion to this small Italian restaurant (TRUE). We were all really well. The pizza is really good! Spaghetti Carbonara excellent! Friendly service and waiting times more than acceptable. I had been on other occasions in Helsinki in various places, but I think at Pompei Restaurant last May 1, the day of vappu, we all tasted the best pizza and the best spaghetti.
