A light evening meal

We were recommended this restaurant by our tour guide we fancied an evening meal not streetfood just for a change. I had a glass of house red to go with my Caesar salad which was really nice, another member in my party had the pesto tagliatelle it was luminous green! But tasted good. All in all... read more

Walking into Pomodoro is a delightful escape from the hustle and noise of HCMC. The menu and wine list are authentic Italian. The pizza is wonderful. Service is attentive. All together a familiar and frequent stop for me when in HCMC.

Bricks surround the walls and ceilings, which makes for a great eating environment. The food is excellent, with textures and flavors as you would expect. The service was prompt and friendly.

Conviently located in D1, this restaurant has a great ambience that allows you to feel like you are whisked away to Italy for just a few hours. A brilliant selection of wines and large choice of pastas. Pizzas are pretty good too.

We often go to vietnam (saigon) and we always eat at the pomodoro restaurant. The food, the service and the price is excellent. The staff also understands and speaks english. Try it and you will not be disappointed.

I travel to Saigon 1-2 times/year. The group that I travel with likes to go to Pomodoro as it's a great location and the food is good. HOWEVER we swore it off last year as the owner was rude and disrespectful. We went twice in a week and there was 6-12 each time. He was crabby on both visits and... More

After 10 days traveling throughout Vietnam we were thrilled to dine at Pomodoro. Luckily it was a block from our hotel and ranked well on tripadvisor. We loved our meal. Fresh crisp salad, perfect pasta. Service was wonderful and attentive. We needed a box lunch for our next day of traveling and the manager had sandwiches made up for us.... More

Being an aficionado of Italian cuisine I always tend to enter Italian restaurants even when there's a lot of Vietnamese food to chose from. This one turned out to be a good choice. The garden salad, chicken in Parmesan, and wine were good. I liked the interior made of bricks (possibly those French bricks that are so popular in this... More
