“Great Italian cuisine but everything is a la carte!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Our second night in New York we decided to try this Italian restaurant. It was good Friday so we were searching for a meat less option. The staff was very friendly and seated us right away. We tried a glass of the rose house wine, which was very good. My wife and I both ordered lobster ravioli. The white sauce was sweet and complimented the ravioli. We thoroughly enjoyed it! The only downside was that everything was a la carte. For the cost, I would've liked a side, such as salad.

“Love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We see the Allman Brothers Band every year in March at the Beacon Theater. It's become our tradition to have dinner at Pomodoro prior to the show! The food is outstanding...and so is the service. We have never been disappointed with any of our menu choices; all were fresh and expertly prepared. Desserts look wonderful, but alas, I never have enough room to indulge!!
Do not miss this cozy, truly Italian restaurant. You'll love it!

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013 via mobile

Lovely classic Italian restaurant that we went to for lunch. We found it by chance and were delighted with the quality of the fresh food. My wife is Italian and knows good Italian food and this matched up to her high standards!!
Although the waitress we had was keen to rush us initially with our order, once she realised that we were there to take our time, everything flowed well and overall the staff were efficient and friendly and the atmosphere was welcoming. I had mussels in a tomato and garlic based sauce followed by penne pasta and sausage meat/tomato sauce. My wife had the rocket and grilled shrimp salad, followed by the rigatoni with ham and peas. She says not to be put off this dish because it says 'with a pink sauce', it basically means tomato sauce and cream. The portions were satisfyingly large and we absolutely loved our choices.
I would highly recommend this restaurant.

“NYC Italian at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

This is what an Italian restaurant should be. Not too fancy, good fresh food, great moderately priced wine list, super service, I could go on and on. This is a keeper!
