My wife and I have been eating here since our first visit to Kauai in 1999. We were here in November of 2013 and on our return for a two week stay the forth week of January, we found that Jeri and her family had closed and retired. For those of us that visited frequently and got to know Jeri... More

Previous reviewer said it would close on Jan. 11, 2014. Checked out yesterday to see if this was correct, and yes , it has, and Google can no longer find its web site.

We have come here annually for the past 20 years and were saddened to learn on on this trip that we just ate our last meal here. After 35 years, they are closing :-( The food and service have always been one of our trip highlights. This a small and great atmosphere. The food has always been outstanding. Thanks for... More

In most locales, Pomodoro would be a friendly, popular, dependable neighborhood Italian restaurant that takes care to produce its own sauces for homemade pasta cooked to perfection. But in this case the neighborhood is eastern Kauai and that is the point. After several days of fresh fish and ocean views we were reedy for a different taste and we found... More

It was a great meal and the staff was superb; they really do need a better location, because this is a wonderful place to go for a nice quality meal. It is a bit hidden, and mostly patronized by discerning locals and they all get called by name when they enter.

We really like this restaurant. We come here every time we're in HI and it has always been very good. Because we remembered that the portions were large we shared a salad for the starter. I had the pizzola veal with bow tie pasta which was excellent. The sauce was rich with tomatoes, peppers and onions. My wife had the... More

We were in the mood for some Italian food, and of course, hard to find on this island. Pomodoro was suggested and I learned that the owner is from Salerno. The restaurant itself is small, but the staff are extremely kind and try to make your visit as pleasant as possible. My husband ordered the lasagna, which was wonderful and... More

We had a dinner at Pomodoro on a somewhat late on a Friday evening. Our server was very friendly and all of the staff made us feel right at home. It really seemed that they wanted us to feel like family. We ordered the veal Pizzaiola and the prosciutto with melon. The dishes were generous and delicious. I would recommend... More

We stopped in here for dinner after attending the Friday night art fare in Hannappe. The service was warm and friendly, almost like being in a relatives house for dinner. We had the Veal Pizzaiola and the prosciutto with melon. Both plates were large and delicious. The server was all smiles and was even good natured when we turned down... More
