Great food. Awesome service!

This is the place for Italian food on Shelter Island. Beer and wine only, but a great selection of Italian wines (California, too). Outstanding service, thanks Claudio! Try the pork osso buco. But save room for dessert. This place rocks!

This place has a small intimate dining area. The service is fast and the food is good. Not the best Italian I've ever had but portion size was good.

Great products, great service and a gorgeous, stunning waitress! To bad they don't have a little liquor to finish... I can recommend the carpacio carne and the spirelli Bolognaise.

My family and I were looking for good authentic Italian food. And we found it at Pomodoro! The calzone was on point and the pizza was truly delicious from the crust to the toppings! We will definitely visit this restaurant again when we return to San Diego! Eat in or carry out....

We visited while in the area for a quick getaway. We chose it because it was in walking distance of our hotel. Much to my surprise is was outstanding. It was very traditional. They do not have a kids menu but are accommodating in every way for our 18 month old. It felt like eating at a family friend's. The... More

The menu was large and varied, though nothing was totally unique. Of course, I state that, but was pleased with the minestrone that came WITHOUT beans -- exactly as it should be, which is... More

San Diego's Point Loma neighborhood presents a multitude of restaurant choices, including several featuring Italian cuisine. I heartily recommend Pomodoro to those looking for an authentic, reasonably-priced, quality-first option. A rustic and cozy setting and ambiance complements a diverse menu with plenty of specials, all with an Italian touch. I had the salmon piccata with roasted vegetables, perfectly done. Superb...
