True Italian cuisine

This place never disappoints. We dine here every year the evening before we head for home. Reservations are a good idea especially in high season. My husband and I have tried may dishes from the menu and are always happy with our choices. The wait staff is exceptional as well. You can order and... read more

This is the place to go if you are looking for authentic Italian food. The owner, Joe, is the best. He is always on premises and works hard to make the food the best. We enjoyed our waiter, Elvis, too!

4 of us had an ok dinner here. Service was very good and a very happy server waited on us. Wine list is heavy on reds and skimpy for whites. We enjoyed our super Tuscan red at 34$ a good buy. Caesar salads were nothing remarkable but ok. House mixed green salad the same. Baby clams , garlic and pasta... More

After reading good reviews, we looked forward to a great dinner. My Eggplant Rollatini was bland and tasteless. Sauce on the spaghetti was just OK. My husband said the meatballs on his spaghetti were rather hard and tough. Our dining companions were happier with their choices (pasta Mario and the Italian Sausage special). The garlic buns were OK, but tasted... More

My Fiancé and I wanted a nice Italian dinner. We found this adorable spot and glad we did. Food and service was fantastic. The only reason I rate this a 4 star, is because my meal was a little on the spicy side, almost too spicy to eat but it was delicious. Overall our experience was great and we'll be... More

Last night a group of 6 "girls" dined at Il Pomodoro on our way to the Barbara B Mann Performance Hall. We had chosen this place because of the menu and proximity to the concert. It did not disappoint. In fact, it was a delightful experience all around. We had reservations and were seated promptly at a nice round table.... More

This is a belated (but not forgotten) review of a disappointing first and last meal meal that my wife and had here last month. We arrived on a weekday evening. The restaurant was busy, but there were some empty tables. Our Walt White look-alike waiter (infortunately I didn't get his name) was totally indifferent or rude whether it was questions... More
