Disappointing meal and service

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... read 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.

My wife and I were looking for a casual dinner after the 49'er game and stopped here on our way home. Altghout the lot has limited parking we found a space immediately. It took a while for the hostess to seat us with the restaurant less than half full. Our order was taken in a reasonable amount of time, but... More

This restaurant attempts to be a family style restaurant and a bistro. A restaurant can't be both. The portions were small, and came with nothing except bread. Salad and a vegetable were extra, which wouldn't be an issue if the portions were bigger. This is pasta after all - not steak or lobster! I counted12 quarter-sized ravioli arranged in an... More
