After a less than satisfactory dining experience the night before, we tried this restaurant. It was a cold and rainy evening and we were hungry. We were greeted at the door and promptly seated even though we had no reservations and this was Easter Saturday. Mike was our server. He provided detailed information on the specials and answered all of... More

A party of five of us visited on a Tuesday night - the $10 pasta special night. It took forever for us to get our drinks - 3 glasses of wine and 2 mixed drinks. We made sure to order when the drinks finally arrived since by then we understood our waiter was slow. He asked us if we wanted... More

We've been patrons of Pomodoros for years and have always enjoyed their food. The menu had changed a bit since our previous visit and did not disappoint. Their eggplant was the best I have ever had! Sort of a modern day twist on an old favorite which doesn't overwhelm the palate with cheese & sauce but explodes with fresh flavors.... More

This restaurant is a great value with a very extensive menu. The butternut squash is to die for and the Caesar salad was fantastic.

This lunch was really great. I asked the waitress for recommendations and had Spaghetti Bolognese and Garbanzo & Vegetable Minnestrone soup. Both were yummy! The waitress, Sarah, was very attentive and friendly. I think this restaurant has improved a lot since my last visit when it was just okay.

We visited twice in 2 days; once for lunch and once for dinner. For dinner, I had the Melitzanes Papoutsakia - a unique eggplant-based dish with artichokes, sundried tomatoes, portabellos, Kalamata olives, feta, pomodoro sauce and fried leeks. Beautifully presented and delicious. My wife had the lamb chops which were tasty. Service was ok, We'll be returning.

I visited this restaurant today for lunch, it was not busy and the atmosphere was nice. Our food was nothing special, but alright. The service, however was terrible. Our server was very slow, did not refill bread or water the entire time (we were the only table she had). Then we ordered cappuccino's to go. On the menu the price... More

We ate Chicken Marsala and Spaghetti Bolognese for dinner at the South Asheville location on Long Shoals Road. Both meals were well prepared and well served. Service was attentive and friendly. Menu is not extensive, but appears to be food the owners would fix for themselves and to serve to their customers - meaning they are not trying to please... More

Food was sub par for upscale dining. On a slow night the service was on point as was the hostess. The food came out in a timely manor but that was about the end of the good. Portions were small, and not well cooked. The only highlight were the scallops (all 4 of them). Just left me wondering when the... More

Over hyped.....just average food and not average prices. They swore my Eggplant Parmesan (?) was FRIED and I simply do not believe it. Baked is much more like it. Restaurants should be forced by the Supreme Court of the United States of America to tell the truth about such IMPORTANT things as that. The only way I can prove to... More
