“Perfect food and atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We thought we'd make our last night in Wellington a little special, but we were skeptical about an Italian restaurant. So glad we took a chance. Pomodoro is not just any old Italian restaurant. We were delighted with the service, the friendly and upbeat atmosphere, and the very, very good food. We will certainly return to Pomodoro on a return trip to Wellington, which we hope will be soon.

“Great Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Ok this place did the job, a great find on the main street in Wellington, there was not one thing I could say negative about this place ( actually yes ... there was only one beer on tap...which I hasten to add was actually good and local too ) ... the service was friendly ( we probably should have reserved on a Sat night but we got well looked after )...the food was excellent, tasty , fresh and good value...the prices may be a little top end but worth it... we had pasta ( 10/10 ) and fish (9/10 ) ....the place was a great find...

“Good as Nonna's and a Full house on a Monday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We were looking for a restaurant on a Monday night, not much being open, and the owner of Angeline's, the place where we are staying recommended Pomodoro. My wife is Italian so we were a bit nervous about an Italian restaurant because not much does well when compared to nonna's food. Pomodoro pulled it off in spades. We had great appetisers including the arrancini which were delightful. . For mains we had the lamb special, the chicken, the pappardelle and the good ol spaghetti and meatballs. Everyone loved their meals. I had the pappardelle with a mushroom, white wine cram sauce and the flavouring was exquisite and perfectly balanced. Every bite slowly revealed the dish as you chewed. We had a local wine, 2011 Merlot from Huff estates that was great. Highly recommend this restaurant. Not to be missed, even if you are Italian!

“Excellent Meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

My husband and I tried Pomodoro for the first time a few weekends ago. The food was very delicious. We both agree that this meal was the best we've had in a long while when it comes to area restaurants. I had the eggplant dish and would order it again. The service was perfect...courteous, genuine but not pushy. Definitely make reservations as by the time we left, there was a small line up out the door. We hope to return!!
