My husband and I took a trip to San Diego without an agenda or any special places in mind for where we wanted to dine or visit. On a whim, we stopped at Pomodoro's one night and we absolutely loved it! The atmosphere on the patio was great, food was hot and so, so good. My husband and I actually... More

As a fan of Italian food, I chose Pomodoro for my birthday dinner. I could not have made a better choice! From the appetizer to dessert, our meal was spectacular. We started with a beet salad that was the perfect, light beginning. All our entrees were delicious, my spaghetti and meatballs, and my friends' spaghetti carbonara and pollo arrotolato (chicken...

I waited way too long to visit Pomodoro and now I am such a fan that I will make the 30+ minute drive every time hubby and I crave Italian food! I ordered Fusilli Bolognese, he ordered Pasta Arrabiata and we both were so pleased and happy for the perfect and fresh taste we couldn't stop saying "yummy" while eating.... More

My husband, son, and I visited Pomodoro per customer reviews on Yelp. We didn't have a great table (right next to the kitchen and AC vent); however, the food was fantastic. The owners/managers were monitoring every dish that went out and the service was very attentive. They don't have a kids menu; however, they will make almost any dish in... More

Close to the marina, excellent ambiance & food. We will definitely eat here again when we're in town! Also, a nice selection of wines to choose from.

We went here for a large birthday party and had the calamari appetizer and several different style pizzas. The pizzas were amazing! We live in North County but will definitely be back. They were out of the tiramisu so hopefully it will be there next time. Instead we got ice-cream with espresso poured over the top. A huge hit! Wish... More

Fresh, great tasting experience in Italian food. Friendly service, homey atmosphere. Watching everyone's food being served made you want to come back and try that! Will definately return to this quaint little spot. Kudos to the owner for such an adventure! Glad we made reservations, filled up in no time!

We're not Italian, but are originally from Brooklyn, NY. We've tasted some of the best Italian food from home cooks to great restaurants. Pomodoro rates right up there with the best. The service was superb and the food was outstanding. The feel of the place was like one of the home-style establishments in Brooklyn. We ate there twice while in... More

We liked everything about this restaurant. The location, the décor, the menu selections. Our waiter was from Northern Italy and he took great pride in talking about the food. Absolutely delicious meatballs, and the risotto was perfect. We had lunch and found it relaxing and oh so good. Spumoni for dessert, served with a flair. You won't be disappointed.
