“Fab food and made to feel very welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

This was our first visit to Pomodoro, we normally go to La Piazza, but we have since found out it is now closed and Luca now works here, so that was a good sign when we saw him working in the Kitchen. We had a variety of different meals, all were excellent. A few of us had deserts all of which were Devine. Lovely selection of Italian cold drinks and great coffee. The only thing I would like them to add to the menu is pasta in a creamy sauce, such as Carbonara.

“Refreshing change”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

The first thing that strikes you about this Italian run place is that this is where the Italians congregate for coffee, cake and pizza. Always a good sign.
I have been here three times in a period of a month and enjoyed it everytime.
Service is friendly and quick.
Daily specials are on display along with a great display of little cream filled cakes and meringues. Pizza cooked in a proper pizza oven varying in price from 4.29 to 5.99.
Tried the Arancini which although tasty lacked a bit of seasoning.
Only one toilet which is an inconvenience for a convenience.
Main service area and cooking area has about 30 covers then more through a small hallway into what is basically the next door building.
Still a fledgling business but being run by astute, experienced Italians who have worked elsewhere in the town. Their pooled experience can't help but to produce a successful venture. I wish them every success and I shall return often. Number one spot in town for espresso / macchiato.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

I am big fan of italian food, and Pomodoros does not disappoint! The lasagne is delicious and my husband said the same thing about his pizza. They were also very good at catering for our dairy intolerant daughter. The staff is really nice and always helpful. They also have a highchair. I definitely recommend it and we will definitely go back on our next trip to Scarborough!

“Gorgeous food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

This place looks very simple and understated and now I understand why. The food is so lovely that flashy surroundings are not necessary., although the interior is modern, bright and clean. Our meals were authentically Italian and beautifully presented, It has a cafe atmosphere and although it was very busy it did not seem frenetic or congested. The service was very friendly and relaxed and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal, being tempted to three courses and leaving very full and satisfied. Will definitely return!

“First visit - we shall return!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

It was our first visit to Pomodoro but will not be our last!! We were a party of eight and we all enjoyed the experience. The food was delicious, fresh and tasty with plenty of choice - including "specials" and it was clean plates all round!! The staff were friendly and polite and knowledgeable regarding the menu and specials which was helpful. The bistro/cafe is furnished cafe style and was very busy with a buzzy atmosphere - bring your own bottle was an added bonus!! Would recommend.
