“Overpriced and the smallest portions”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

This was one of the worst places at bondi beach to eat at. My family ordered a salad and it was no bigger than the size of someone's palms. The bowl they had placed the salad in wasn't even full. It wasn't as if we had ordered rare ingredients. All the salad had was cucumber and tomato, and for $13 you expect a bowl to be full not 1/4 full. Not only that, we ordered ravioli which cost $27. For $27 all we received was 8 small ravioli pieces. Although the owner said it was hand made and that she pays $45 for an even smaller amount of ravioli in Sydney, she must of thought we were born in the last rain shower. I don't care if the ravioli was hand made, to only put 8 pieces is a rip off to patrons who should be treated with more decency. I would have hated to have seen the entrée. Also the main pizzas that were $25 dollars should have been served to children considering the size being equivalent to a small plate.

“Italian up the street”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

We went to Pompeis twice during our visit once for a pizza and next pasta and veal. The resteraunt has a real family feel about it rather than being amnaaged resteraunt. Outside was nice under the gas heaters but there was alot of traffice comming an d going even in the cul de sac it is located in. Meals were great, wine list was OK but not substantial.

“Best Pizza in Sydney”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We lived in Bondi for three and a half years and Pompei's was one of our favorite restaurants in all of Sydney. The pizza, pasta and gelato are all amazing. You can not go wrong. The beetroot pasta is fantastic. You can BYO. We loved the pugliese pizza and the picantosa and usually added pancetta to kick it up a notch. The staff are all Italian and lovely.

“Expensive and "just okay"”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

Expensive with alright food. My pasta was a bit greasy and had more garnishes that I anticipated. Good location though; a walk away from the beach.
