Great pasta, good price!

Came for lunch. Chose randomly and am very pleased with the pasta. We had a lunch special amatricciana. Staff very friendly. My dog was also very welcomed (small breed in a proper dog case, few barks here and there...). Will definitely come back!

Went there on anniversary. Picked it because they had a promotion, dinner for 2 for $30 -one appetizer, 2 entrees, 1 desert. Our server, Bok, was awesome!!! Best service we had in Gainesville. Atmosphere: well lit together with soothing music. Bread was OK, and the balsamic vinegar sauce was delicious. Servings were huge, we had plenty to take home. My... More

Great atmosphere, friendly knowledgeable waitress. Nice crusty bread and balsamic reduction dipping sauce delivered to the table right after you are seated. My friend had a clam dish that she stated was delicious, I had chicken and shrimp carbonara very tasty and had lots of shrimp. The only negative was when I entered the restaurant the person at the counter... More

I really enjoy the atmosphere of this place. The bread they give you before the meal is so good! And I love the cannolis!

Had a really good time at Pomodoro. The pasta and vegetables were very fresh and the sauce was delicious. The restaurant decor is eclectic and fun. We did not eat dessert, but the desserts look fantastic! We will be going back.

We visit Pomodoro Cafe often because we have NEVER been disappointed! Whether its one of the unique daily specials (often served with the most delicious sauces), or one of the tasty Italian mainstays, Pomodoro serves up seafood, meats, and pastas that can satisfy the most discerning of palate.

The title of my review says it all. First, let me be upfront: I'm a NYC transplant and an Italian-American... so, I'm an Italian food snob. I stopped comparing restaurant food to my Nana or mom. It's never going to be the same or as good. But if Nana and Mom went here for dinner, they would have enjoyed it.... More

Was headed to Jacksonville on i75 North and saw there sign on the highway. Figured I would stop and check it out. I'm Sicilian and I am always looking for Mom & Pop restaurants, as I would rather give my money to them vs a chain. I was promptly greated at the door, I decided to sit at the bar... More

My kids and I frequent this place because it has the most delicious pizza ever. Inexpensive, tasty crust, simple good ingredients. We have been going here about 1/month for years!
