I guess we'd never had an authentic Italian menu before, but they had lots to offer and were very helpful. Cute place, and we will go back next time.

We are huge fans of sister restaurant, Osteria Romantica in La Jolla so we decided to try Pomodoro. We were not disappointed, good food, friendly, prompt service, great atmosphere. My only critique is that there was no need to travel to this restaurant. It was exactly like Osteria Romantica in every way, except location. So we will probably will not... More

Enjoyed two wonderful pasta dishes in this cozy, neighborhood spot. It was very busy and we had two large groups dining near us, but we never felt neglected. The service was understandably a little slow, but we enjoyed the ambiance and just relaxed and had a chance to talk. Salads were fresh and servings generous. We had lunch the next... More

As soon I step in front of the restaurant, the hostess was very kind to accommodate me right away to be seated on the table. The restaurant has complimentary bread which I think all restaurants should have but that just my opinion. The waiter was on point on the wine selection that he recommended me to try. As for the...

My wife and I ate here twice on a recent trip to Point Loma. She had two different veal dishes (one of which I shared with a salad) and on another visit I had oysters on the half shell and eggplant parmigiana The veal dishes each had a nice side of pasta. Eggplant parmigiana is my favorite italian dish. In... More

Based on the suggestion of a stranger we visited this place and were satisfied with the meal. It was tasty enough, but nothing really special. Our waiter seemed more interested in yapping to the attractive and personable hostess than he did providing anything related to attentive service. A couple (who seemed to be locals) were seated next to our table... More

This is our favorite Itallian Resutrant in Point Loma. The lasagna is very good as well as the Eggplant Parmesan of course with a nice bottle of red wine!

Went on a Saturday night. The restaurant was crazy busy, 5 waiters walked past us and we waited a good 10 mins before being seated having booked. We were seated near the kitchen and it was very stuffy with smoke and v hot....the air con was on but it was still roasting. Nice buzzy atmosphere. Overwhelming menu....just too much to... More
