My Wife and I took my Brother to the Pasta Pomodoro at Santana Row for his 65th Birthday and had a wonderful meal and a great time. Being a Saturday evening we expected to have a bit of a wait and considering that Santana Row was packed with 1000's of beautiful people, we were pleasantly surprised that we only had... More

Pasta Pomodoro is my all time favorite! I almost always get the gemelli, which has chicken, dried tomatoes, mushrooms, and a tasty cream sauce. The tortellini soup is also very good. The clam appetizer is good, but a bit salty. The best kid's menu item is the cheesy pasta, or the easy cheesy. They always give you warm bread and... More

Classic Italian Pasta you would taste with fresh seafood. No disappointment. Espresso isn't impressive as expected You definitely need to try the chocolate cake~~~ It is so good. Sunday afternoon with great sunshine in Santana Row. Nothing is better than that.\

Family dinner here. Nice Italian ambiance, hard to carry on a conversation. Meal comes with warm foccacia bread and pesto. We had the spaghetti & meatballs, lasagna and butternut squash ravioli. Portion size is adequate, not heaping bowls which was fine with us. Ravioli was delicious, had a nice sweet sauce over the top with browned sage leaves. Spaghetti had... More

We enjoy dinning here. The place is clean, the service is good, and the menu changes from time to time. But most of all, it is dog friendly... the patio is spacious with a good airy feeling to it.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and am never disappointed. The best bruscetta around if you want a great appetizer. Their salmon with cannellini beans is wonderful . I recommend this restaurant highly.

While the pasta was not great, it wasn't terrible, either. However, the grilled chicken was excellent! This particular restaurant was located near Santana Row. Lots of restaurants, people, and cars! The annoyance lies with the parking situation. If the parking lot is full, then parking is available in the parking garage across the street. Although parking in both places is... More

Pasta Pamadoro is a great restaurant if you have a family like mine who's kids 1. Are picky, 2. Have a "good behavior" time limit of about 45 minutes before they loose their minds in a restaurant, 3. Love to color on their menus! It's also a good restaurant if you like the chain, because this is one of their... More

Though this is a chain, the food was good, portions large, and the staff very efficient. Perfect for pre-concert or other event at HP Pavilion. Walking distance to the Pavilion

Not sure how to make bad Italian food. Pasta. Cheeses. Olive oil. All yum, right? Since it is near my house, we have gone here a few times. Each time, we come out disappointed. Maybe seasoning's a little off. Some dishes are too heavy. Even bruchetta was bland. We're done. No more.
