“Overpriced food that makes you ill!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We have been at Pomodoro's twice and we had basically the same experience both times. This place overcharges you for the food which, hours later, makes you feel pretty sick. They are not very nice, either. I would not ever return to this restaurant unless I got a job with the health department and I was ordered to go shut it down! I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE!

“all-in-all bad guinea service & burnt pizza”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012

If bread comes w/ your dinner, you better ask for when you order or they'll push it aside. Also never leave there w/out looking in your pizza box first. My last sicilian pie the cheese was all burnt dark brown and they sneakily charge you full price.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We had fried calamari which was very good,then my girlfriend had the chicken cheese steak and I had a regular cheese steak which were both delicious. The pizza here is good too.

“Too many bad experiences to ever go again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

My family and I went to Pomodoro's the other evening to grab a meal. We entered and it took approximately 5 minutes for the bartender to realize we were there standing waiting to be seated. The restaurant was not busy, but the bartender clearly had no interest in seating people (I have no idea who was supposed to be doing that job). Once we were seated we waited for our server to greet us. We waited, and waited and waited...after 10 minutes, it became laughable and we gave them 5 more minutes before we were walking out. 5 minutes passed and we left. We told some woman on the way out who said she would get our server to us, but by this point we were aggravated with Pomodoro's and wanted to give them no business. This is not the only time we have had terrible service, and sadly it seems to always be the same waitress. She is AWFUL! We have even told the manager on a previous visit when she was awful and obviously nothing was done. We also sent an email to them advising of the poor service (or lack of) that we received and of course we received no response. Another sign that they don't care.

I cant say the food is terrible here, but the service is. If you are able to get a meal, it is average (nothing bad or good to really say) and is a bit on the expensive side for what you get. On another occasion we ate here and all felt sick afterwards (not sure if it was the food or something else, but still a coincidence).

After the numerous bad experiences we have had here we will never be going back. If you want a good pizza, give the other local places a shot...or if you want good Italian, give La-Conca-D'oro a chance. Its a bit more expensive, but definitely much better Italian food
