“Prices & Quality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

We went here with friends and they recommended it. Prices were reasonable for quality of food. We had a late lunch and could not finish it all.

“Great service”

Consistently delicious food served with a smile! Generous serving, light food, heavy on flavor. Wine specials are offered on some week nights.

“Flaming Cheese!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

My wife and I decided to check out Pomodoro's rather than brave Downtown Asheville on a Saturday night. Very pleasant place indeed. It was not crowded, but had enough diners that one didn't feel isolated. I had one of the night's specials, Shrimp Puttanesca. Nicely done with properly cooked shrimp served over house-made linguine. My wife went vegetarian with Melitzanes Papoutsakia. Again, nicely done and presented well. The most impressive dish was another special, Cheese Saganaki: Cheese baked in a skillet, flambéed with brandy and extinguished with a squeeze of lemon at tableside. Fantastic taste! House white and red wines were perfectly acceptable. Service was quite good.

FWIW, one of the diners in the booth next to us worked out a vegan meal with the server and chef. He seemed quite happy with the result.

Definitely worth a visit.
