Glad We Finally Tried It!

We've been on the neighborhood for a while and tried this restaurant because they participate in a dining discount booklet sold as a fundraiser for Kiwanis. We really enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. Looking forward to making this one of our regular places.

Ours is a town which thrives during the "season" - during the summer months, however, folks in the service industry often suffer due to the decline in the sheer volume of people around. Therefore, one would think that servers would go out of their way to be extra friendly in the off-season months. Unfortunately, at il Pomodoro, this was not... More

We go to Il Pomodoro frequently, and many local people have told me they love it too. They have a huge menu - it's actually hard to choose. The chef is not afraid to venture into offering specials like osso bucco, sausage with bitter broccoli, or special canneloni. Every meal we have had at Il Pomodoro tasted like they used... More

If you have never had this pizza, you have never REALLY had pizza. This small shop is constantly busy and never fails to live up their reputation. With 3 teenagers around, we only had 2 larges-with leftovers! It reheats well, too.

I have been to Il Pomodoro several times now and the food is always wonderful. This particular night we were going to a show at the Barbara Mann theater and it was a perfect dinner spot pre-show. Elvis is always our waiter and he is fantastic. His personality is great and he has such a wonderful sense of humor, he... More

A friend and I went there for the first time last night. The ambiance and service was great. Wine had an unusual amount of tanen; ordered mussels but at 6:30 they were out. Fried calamari arrabiatta was so hot, it was inedible. After that we both ordered a salmon salad each. Big salad, nice dressing and overcooked salmon. The bill,... More

We started with house rolls which are good but a hair too garlickly for our taste. Then had fried calamari as an appetizer and it was horrible. Presentation was poor as the portion would have fit into a saucer. Add to that that however it was cooked it came out like old bubble gum. The house salad was barely average... More

We do dine at Il Pomodoro quite frequently each time we leave we find ourselves looking forward to our next visit. Il Pomodoro has a great staff, very courteous, very professional, very concerned that your dining experience at their restaurant be nothing less than perfect. Reservation time honored, you walk in and your table is waiting. A very exciting menu... More
