Almost anybody can cook pasta. That's why I don't think it is a good choice for a restaurant meal. Get something difficult, where the kitchen had to work to prepare the dish. At Pasta Pomodoro, you pay $10+ for a plate of pasta you could serve yourself at home for pennies. Ambiance does not make up for the prices. There... More

My partner of 35 years+ and I eat here several times a week. Although we like pasta, we try to watch our carb intake but have still found some hidden diet-friendly gems in the menu. Among the soups, I heartily recommend the minestrone and the tortellini. Both are made fresh; no out-of-a-box soup here! Another good bet are the salads.... More

This amazing little restaurant offers a warmth and vibrancy that is rare to find. The team is attentive and welcoming. Even after being seated the hostess walks by to check in and offer s smile. The chef and manager are attuned to each party, even offering to comp a salad if the wait seemed too long. "Con permisso" is the... More

Went for a Sunday dinner, expecting something passable and hassle-free, boring but good. The service was extraordinary and made all the difference.

Was driving around Redwood City looking for a place to eat and found Pasta Pomodoro and stopped in to try it. It was excellent food. My wife is a picky eater and she found a salmon dish that she loved. The waiter was everything you could want, he knew the dishes, made recommendations, and ensured everything was perfect. He even...

Generally we like the chain but the place was 2/3 empty for lunch during the Holiday season which may say something. Service was good but the food was poor that day - I report it with hesitation as we've had good experiences at other locations in the chain in the past but not this time ......

Called to order dinner on the way home and got great service. The food was waiting for me on the counter and Evelia was very efficient in getting my receipt. The Pepperoni Pizza was very good and the Cicken Parmesan was excellent. We enjoyed the Farro and Bruschetta. Will certainly order again.

Really enjoyed our meal here. The service was attentive and the meal came promptly. Part of the reason for this was that we came on a Sunday afternoon when when it was mostly empty. But the pasta dishes were delicious and the salad greens were fresh so that we both had a very enjoyable experience.

We've been going to Pasta Pomodoro for years, but it has declined so much over the years I don't think we'll ever return. We went the other night and had to ask 3 times for the dipping sauce (which is yummy) and water. I had a salad w/ salmon on it which was dry on the outside and under cooked... More

Was looking for an easy meal before an event and the staff here did a great job. Aleisha helped us and was terrific. The Chicken Parmesan was tasty (maybe a little dry), the Spaghetti was good and my son loved the garlic bread. Our order was ready exactly as promised. check # 10053. Thank you.
