“You gotta eat here..........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We were recently in Cabarete staying at the Cabarete Palm Beach Condos which are conveniently located minutes from all the restaurants on the beach strip. We ate at Pomodoro restaurant the first night and I remembered why I loved it. We have eaten there in past years and I was pleasntly surprised to find that the food was still as good or even better than any of the top Italian restaurants in Toronto. Everything is made from scratch and I have so many favorites that we ended up eating there 7 nights out of the 12 days we were there. The Chianti is imported from Italy and comes in the straw covered bottle just adding to our enjoyment. My husband loves the pizza and any pasta with the carbonara sauce (I bet even Rachel Ray would give it 2 thumbs up)! They do deliver, but because we were so close to the restaurant, one night when we eating in we ordered take out for some appetizers, salads (the ensalada de Deny with Arguala is a particular fav) and an order of just the carbonara sauce which we used on our baked potatoes instead of sour cream; yummy! Chef Antonio's receipes have been in his family for generations and the staff are friendly and warm; we feel like family every time we go and they are really appreciatve of your business. Compared to other places on the beach strip the prices are increditlby reasonable and there is something for everyone. I can tell you that I will be dreaming of those dinners over the rest of our cold wet winter and it will be the first place I head to on our return. Ciao

“Beste pizza we had in DR”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

We have great pizza in Eugene and this would not be a top five place here but it was by far the best pizza we had in the DR (we had in 4 other places) and it was GOOD even by Eugene standards. It was also large. One filled us up and we took a couple of slices home. Prices were quite reasonable. We would definitely eat there again. Of course you are on the gorgeous beach (if you want) which doesn't hurt.

“Pizza and pasta is amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Consistently good pizza and pasta! We have a vacation home in Cabarete and love that deliver when we are too lazy to walk up the beautiful beach. They are fast (in terms of "island time") and the food always arrives hot. The prices are very reasonable!

“Pizza,Wine, Beach, a gentle wind blowing, under a moonlit sky, what is not to like?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

Living for eight weeks in Cabarete and from Chicago area...so grading a Pizza place average is an ok grade. Server was new, first night on job but no problem...his good humor and our limited Spanish was adequate. Management helps out by listing 50 or so popular topping combo's on a large menu, allowing the diner to point if communication is a problem. Prices are competitive with other similar places such as LAX,also on the beach. Bottom line is...visit the kind people of Cabarete and if pizza is your choice Pomodoro is a good destination.
