This restaurant seems to always be buzzing with activity. The service was slow considering the restaurant was not too busy at the time of our visit after 2pm on a Friday afternoon. Often our waiter was nowhere to be found. The food was really good,...More

Pomodoro is one of our local favorites. Pizza and pasta is always excellent if you want "traditional" Italian fare. However, I would recommend that you also order some of the dishes from the rest of the menu. Wines are reasonably priced and they have a...More
