This restaurant is a true gem. The wait staff is super, and the food is to die for. The restaurant is small and tables are very close together. It can get noisy. I hope they have the opportunity to expand. That being said, we will definitely return again. The food and service are definitely 5 star!

This is a fun small restaurant with great food and service. You almost always need reservations. The fried zucchini is great for sharing. The homemade pappardelle pasta is worth the extra charge, I order it alla bolognese. My husband loves the orecchiette with sausage and broccoli. We've never eaten at the bar, but it is always busy. Those seated there... More

Hard to get a table so make a reservation! Best and most consistent food on HHI. Can be loud but the best Italian food. I recommend the veggie lasagna!

Once again we visited Pomodori with some of our local friends and, as always, the experience was wonderful. From the friendly way we were greeted to our exceptional waiter (Lawrence) everything was great! The food was superb (especially the Melanzane alla Parmigiana and Rigatoni alla Bolognese) and priced very reasonably. No question-this is one of the Island's best Italian restaurants!

We visited with a group of neighbors. Nice setting but not pretentious. Food was excellent and reasonably priced. Wonderful Italian menu. Waiter was first class. Well worth a visit.

This was our second time dining at Pomodori and the experience was just as great as the first time. The restaurant is quaint inside and has an old world feel. We are gluten free and they offer zucchini noodles as a substitute for pasta...genius! The waiter was very accommodating and friendly. The food was delicious! We will be back again... More

Place was packed, had reservation, people turned away @ door. Very small, including bar area. Boris, our waiter attentive, helpful, & pleasant. Entrées enjoyed, house made gnocchi w/ sausage & special: salmon piccata. Both excellent & flavorful. Bread warm w/ olive oil. Homemade cannoli Devine!!! Look forward to returning. Reservation needed!!! Nice price point for entrées.

Small place but def worth a visit. Everything is homemade. Had a loud table next to our group, that is the only negative from our experience. Great job!
