Nice and cozy place, very friendly and kind staff and absolutely delicious food. I had "Mascarpone gnoochi with marinated to tomatoes and parmesan cheese", and it was really great choice. Enjoy!

We did not get a table at the restaurant we wanted, but no regrets as we came across Pompier Espa! Excellent food right in the city center, and special bonus that entrecote was big enough to satisfy big hunger — and excellent taste! Highly recommended

We prebooked a table and had a lovely set dinner on a busy saturday night. The waitress was very informative and took diet restrictions well into consideration. The food in itself was also good. I strongly recommend for adults, I would leave the kids home.

If I need lunch, Pompier is always perfect. Lunchtime is 11-14. If you come at 11 the restaurant is usually full after 10 minutes, but they have fast service and office workers' lunchtime is short. Salad buffet with soup of the day is excellent and...More

Sorry - we drank wine so I'm afraid I can't help with your question. It was good food though. Hope you enjoy your trip
