Good food, quick service

Was looking for an easy meal before an event and the staff here did a great job. Aleisha helped us and was terrific. The Chicken Parmesan was tasty (maybe a little dry), the Spaghetti was good and my son loved the garlic bread. Our order was ready exactly as promised. check # 10053. Thank you.

Really enjoyed our meal here. The service was attentive and the meal came promptly. Part of the reason for this was that we came on a Sunday afternoon when when it was mostly empty. But the pasta dishes were delicious and the salad greens were fresh so that we both had a very enjoyable experience.

We've been going to Pasta Pomodoro for years, but it has declined so much over the years I don't think we'll ever return. We went the other night and had to ask 3 times for the dipping sauce (which is yummy) and water. I had a salad w/ salmon on it which was dry on the outside and under cooked... More

We dined at the Pasta Pomodoro in Redwood City because we've always had a good meal at the Novato location. The meal and service were both very substandard. Three of us dined and we were given only ONE small foccacia bread stick with the dipping sauce. We repeatedly requested more bread however none came until we spoke to the manager.... More

The food here is delicious! The portions are a good size and everything tasted delicious! The bread and pesto dipping sauce that they give to you before your meal was the best part! The service was friendly and fast as well. The only thing negative I have to say is that I was disappointed with the atmosphere! I was hoping... More

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner one night. We order an appetizers and 2 small pasta dishes. They tasted generic and cost me almost $50 I was upset about this and will not be back for those ridiculous prices.

Wanted a nice meal on a Saturday night sitting home watching football. Decided to call and was very pleased. The bread was warm and tasty, all of our pasta entrees were delicious and the food was ready as promised, the parking was easy and convenient to the entrance. Much better than our prior sit down experience.

I am happy just ordering the bowl of minestrone soup, which is made fresh and delicious, the best I've tasted anywhere in the Peninsula or anywhere in the Bay area for that matter. Its hearty and filling and you can feel the vegetables still crackle between your teeth. This branch has a great waiter called Jose who is enthusiastic jolly... More

The place was clean and people friendly. It seemed like a fast food place, but the food was excellent.
