I have visited this restaurant several times over the last 3 years. It offers good quality Italian food at a good price. Between myself and my friends we have tried numerous dishes, so far nothing has disappointed. Wine selection is good too. Always comforting, especially when seeking something that isn't Vietnamese.

We also stumbled upon the restaurant by accident and were extremely glad we did. It was very busy when we arrived but the manager very kindly found a table for us. We had a small wait for our drink and food order but it was certainly worth it. It was extremely refreshing to see linen serviettes, table clothes, excellent service... More

Good staff, good food and nice red wines. Went for dinner with colleagues. Good choice of antipasti and main dishes. Pasta with baby squids wads delicious. Quite big restaurants so I wouldn't think you need to book during the week. Seems owner is an Italian...can be a sign of true Italian taste.

We dined here twice on consecutive nights and both times we were blown away. The service and meals were infallible. Carmille' the maitre d' was the host with the most!!! He even let us into the kitchen so we could thank the chefs, who were a great crew. I highly recommend this place for any and everyone.

We had a very nice dinner here. I love the lively atmosphere, warm and welcome service here. The staffs are very nice, friendly and professional. You could talk to Chef about the food, the cooking experience anytime. It’s interesting. All dishes are delicious, beautiful and served creatively. The steak is outstanding. The others like tuna, salmon are really nice. I

Just brilliant! Fantastic food and wines. Perfect atmosphere. I'll be back! PS. Try cold cuts for starters. They have fresh home made pasta ..... It is sublime.

Made a pleasant change from local cuisine. Very comfortable and cool interior - liked the brick work and lights. Typical Italian menu, well executed. Food was freshly cooked and plentiful. Adding in a bottle of decent red meant it wasn't cheap, but we enjoyed our meal. The chef came and discussed options with a neighbouring table and was clearly interested... More

We had business dinner at Pomodoro and our guests really enjoyed the food and service. Tuna was very fresh and tasty Quatrro Formaggi pizza. Choice of wine is quite limited but enough to select. Would recommend if you miss Italian food, nice food indeed.

I believe I've eaten here every time I've come to HCM for business and the meals are always delicious. Pomodoro has a great wine list as well.

We ate there a couple of times. It is beautifully designed like the barrel vaults you see in Florence but full of light. The food was excellent! We had the tuna salad and tuna tartare both had a good helping of tuna followed by Linguini vongole... Lots of clams and the pasta was perfect.
