Excellent place to eat with outstanding service! The food is always delicious! We have dined here many times. Nick, our waiter of choice is super! He is very personable, yet professional and is always very attentive. He knows the menu and is always willing to answer any questions or recommend something. The calamari is so good and cooked just right.... More

We have eaten at Il Pomodoro twice now, and since my husband and I swap bites of each other's entrees, I have experienced several of the sauces. Tonight's pleasures were the mushroom Marsala sauce on his Chicken Toscano and the lemon basil sauce on my Salmon Martina. Both dishes were wonderful, full of fragrance and flavor. The portions are more... More

Sisters, nieces, friend and I spent a week in the Fort Myers area and ate out every day but this was my favorite. Everything about IL Pomodoro felt like a trip to Italy. Ingredients were so fresh, the pasta was cooked perfectly, sauces were full of flavor and the wine list offered great choices at reasonable prices. And finally, service... More

My wife and I had dinner on Friday night. She had the veal cardinele and I had the eggplant park. The waitress was very accommodating and right from the start she offered us a larger table. Since I am a big guy this was greatly appreciated. We were severed hot garlic bread right away which was out of this world.... More

My first experience with Il Pomodoro was good. I ordered the Tower of Pisa which is under their appetizer list. It sounded delicious. When I got back to the office I was surprised to see I got garlic rolls. They smelled great, however, they were not fresh as they were from the previous day and just warmed up. Threw them... More

Large menu and lots to choose from plus great daily specials. Wonderful service and plenty of room inside. Can be a bit noisy so go early. Ask for a cushion if the chairs are too low or hard. Portions are enough to take left overs home. Off the beaten path and mostly locals. Well worth it.

We just spent 7 nights in Ft Myers and ate at this restaurant twice for dinner. The first night we were greeted by Jersey Girl. She was an amazing waitress. She had all the intangibles you look for in your staff. My Wife, Daughter and Son had amazing meals. The food was authentic and the red sauce was divine. The... More
