Welcome to Pompei!

In the heart of the old town of Tartu, there is a world where everything is made with love. House-made mozzarella made from the best local milk, hand-made pasta and limoncello made from high quality Sicilian lemons – this is just a part of our story.

Come see for yourself!

Made with love

About the menu

Erik Enula, the head chef of Pompei, is mainly inspired by Italian cuisine. However, everything that is prepared and served in the  kitchen has a little twist that makes each dish unique. Fresh and quality ingredients and good flavours will always be the most important thing for us. This way, our house-made cheeses are always fresh and made from the best Southern Estonian milk, which comes to us directly from the farm. Handmade pasta, which changes in the menu according to the season, is definitely worth trying. Our recommendation is to share the dishes between friends, because it’s always more fun together!

In addition to the food, we cannot leave out our wide drink list, which has been put together by Tõnis Nöps, representing the best finds of all around the world. Definitely don’t forget to try Pompei Limoncello!
