Pomodoro offers great italian cuisine, good wines and great service. The folks are so frieindly and accommodating. For lunch try any of the specials, but I really like the sirloin piadine…cooked to your temperature and always perfect…tender and fresh. Now for dessert….dont shy away, everthing is fabulous and homemade at the restaurant. Hmmmm, any cheesecake, wedding cake, tiramissou, canolli, what... More

I get dinner for my group of students every time we are in town for the Florida theater conference. I call it in and the mass quantities of pizza and pasta are always hot and delicious! The prices are very reasonable too!

I ate here last week with a large group. The service was excellent. Our server even agreed to extend happy hour prices another 10 minutes since not all of our group had arrived. That was greatly appreciated, My chicken piccata was very tasty. The sauce could have used a tad more lemon, but was good. We ate on the terrace... More

Wonderful atmosphere in restaurant. This is definitely not a "chain" experience. The food and service was better than any Olive Garden we've ever visited. One of us had the seafood dinner. The seafood here was way better than what is served at Red Lobster. Light, flavorful batter. Delicious food with attentive servers makes this place worth seeking out when you... More

Hubby, two others and I went on a Friday night. Had the prime rib. Cooked just right. Food nicely presented, portions a generous size. Will definitely go back.

We live very by Pomodoro's Cafe and could be termed regulars. We find the food good, the service accommodating and the atmosphere welcoming. The menu has a variety of dishes with something for everyone. The final word- good food at a good price.

We have been to Pomdoro Cafe several times over the past few years, but are by no means regulars. We were looking for a place to celebrate a birthday, we chose Pomodoro and are very happy we did. The food was delicious. I ordered a grouper picatta -- wow! It was fresh and delicious. My wife ordered a vegetable pasta... More

We were recently in town for a softball tournament and ate food from here a few times. We went in for dinner one night to just grab pizza for the hotel but decided to stay and eat in. The dinner specials for $11 were a great value including soup/salad and desert. Two nights later we ordered a bunch of pizza's... More

My wife and I enjoy Italian food so we like two restaurants in town. We like Manuel's Vintage Room for intimate dining but we like Pomodoro's for a place to take friends and family. We've been going to Pomodoro's for several years and always find it a pleasant experience. The food is very good; so good that we've never eaten... More
