I like to think of Pomodoro as "my Italian place." It is downstairs from my home and I've taken everyone I know there. The first question is always, "What should I order?" to which I reply, "Doesn't matter, it's all amazing." And it's true.
It is the bread, however, that is Pomodoro's biggest draw. Made on the premises, it is the perfect combination of crusty on the outside and fluffy on the inside. We keep promising ourselves we'll go there and just eat bread with their rosemary olive oil and balsamic vinegar. We never manage that because we're too tempted by their extensive, delicious menu. My standby is the farfalle alla vodka or the farfalle caprino, but really, it's all good--and very reasonably priced with generous portions.
Pomodoro is tiny and intimate with super-friendly wait staff and the owner, who is always there, is an excellent host, making me feel even more so that it is "my place." There is usually a wait though so either book ahead or be patient as you wait on the sidewalk outside. There's no room to wait indoors.
