“Good food; tired restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012 via mobile

Bread in a basket when you sit down is delicious but real butter with it would have been nice. Don't know why restaurants trying to be good use those horrible little tubs of fake butter. Pizza was good with nice size portion of toppings. Crust good and not at all greasy but could have been better with a richer sauce.

“Best Italian restaurant experience I have ever had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

Everything is homemade and WONDERFUL!! I kept thinking it couldnt get any better, but it did. Every course was unbelievable. I was way too full for dessert so i got cannollis to go and thank goodness i did because their homemade cannollis made to order were incredible. Perfect late night snack! Aside from the food being so good, the service was just as good and very expedient! and it was all so reasonably priced! could not have asked for a better dining experience. thanks pomodoros!!

“Always good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012 via mobile

We stay near Pomodoro when visiting Durham for Duke doctor's appointments. It has become our go-to place. Food is always fresh and I have been pleased with everything. A great marinara, salads, sandwiches, and calzones. They have an extensive dessert menu but we are always too full to try dessert.

“Pomodoros - A little bit of Italy in our back yard!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Pomodoros ROCKS, pure and simple! Great Italian food, friendly service, fair and reasonable prices, and a great bar! What else could you ask for? Highly recommended for couples seeking a romantic restaurant or for a family gathering, you won't be disappointed!

“Great service good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

I've been to Pomodoro's a couple of times. The service is always exceptional and the food is always good. I have eaten pizza, a calzone, and lasagna in my visits. All of which tasted very good. The daily drink specials they have throughout the week are also very good. If you are looking for a tasty restaurant that won't break the bank, Pomodoro's offers a great dining experience.
