Nerone is a restaurant I have visited before, but this time there were more of us and the possibility to enjoy a few different dishes from the menu.
For starters a few of us got the local bruschetta. Suprisingly delicious with the base being quite similar to a pizza. So more a”mini pizza”.
I got an assorted starter which is pictured below:
All parts of the dish were excellent. Even the olives. I find that the olives most places in Finland serve are bad, probably due to the importing and the fact that the chosen varietys are not the same ones as say the Italians or Greek would approve of. Anyway, these were good!
As the main course some chose different pizzas, which Nerone is really known for. Others chose tuna -fillet and risottos. I chose a tagliatelle with chicken, cep and naturally cheese.
After dining there was a huge difference between the happiness of our dining party. The pizza were excellent as well as the risotto and the pasta. The fish however, was very bad. The tuna was deemed as close to being cat fodder. Overcooked with a badly chosen part of the tuna.
The tagliatelle was great. The amount of food was maybe a bit too much as I was totally full afterwards. I barely had the capability to eat the dessert, eclair of excellent taste. Unfortunately I do not have a photo of the dessert as the rain outside meant I could not get a proper shot anymore.
Pompeii on pieni Italialainen Kruununhaassa Snellmaninkadun varressa. Paikka on profiloitunut pizzeriaksi ja on etenkin valtsikkalaisten suosiossa sijaintinsa vuoksi. Pompeiissä saa kuitenkin myös anti pastoja, pastoja sekä liharuokia.
Sisälle ei mahdu kovin paljon ihmisiä, joten puhelinvaraukset pöytiin ovat suositeltavia, etenkin jos on liikkeellä isommalla porukalla. Tunnelma on tiivis ja palvelu leppoisan mukavaa.
Pizzalistalla on useita vaihtoehtoja hintahaitarin ollessa hiemn korkea pizzaksi (11-14,50€). Pizzat ovat kuitenkin kohtuullisen isoja, ei mitään mammutteja tokikaan. Listalta valikoitui itselle Capriciosa perinteisine täytteineen (herkkusieniä, kinkkua, artisokkaa oliiveja).
Pohja oli hieman tuhdimpaa ja pehmeämpää kuin esimerkiksi perus pizza-kebab paikoissa tarjolla oleva ja ainakin omaan makuun tämä toimii paljon paremmin. Maku oli hyvä ja annoskoko vei nälän. Käymisen arvoinen paikka, mikäli seikkailee Kruununhaan tuntumassa ja iskee nälkä!
Pompeii is a nice and intimately small Italian restaurant which is specialized in pizzas. The restaurant is located in Kruununhaka, Helsinki. Naturally the menu also has other options such as anti pasto, pasta and meat foods. The Capricciosa (mushrooms, artichokes, ham and olives) was very good and the pizza was large enough to satisfy yet not too huge. Pompeiin nettisivut/homepage
