We went there many times, and we loved the pizza, but we just recently tried takeout. The calamari was soggy, and the pizza became overpriced and bland.

Looks like a strip mall pizza joint from outside but give Pomodoro a chance. Very good food decently priced with terrific staff. Have had all the different chicken dishes which are all top shelf. These guys care and do an awesome job. Bravo!

Take out is good, pizza Abd other Italian dishes are satisfactory. Italian pastries are decent, but not spectacular. Parking good, location good. Decor is average.

Pomodoro is a great little restaurant with a lot of options. Their salads are meals in themselves and their pizza and pastas are always a winner. The restaurant is always packed (the food is the attraction). Unfortunately the space is small and the tables are...More

I appreciate you taking the time in sharing with us your constructive observations. I see that you visited in November 2016 but just posted a review - and it's almost February in 2017? That seems odd, in addition, you specify that we have formica tabletops and are one step above fast food.... this is demonstrable false! Are you sure your are writing about the correct restaurant?? We have intricate architectural mahogany woodwork throughout and custom granite table tops. I believe you clicked on Pomodoro in error but visited another establishment. Nevertheless, if you are referring to my establishment ~ POMODORO PIZZERIA & TRATTORIA- On behalf of myself and the staff, please allow me to apologize for the unfortunate occurrence recently regarding your dining experience with us. I regret the disappointments that you and your guests may have experienced. We will diligently work harder to avoid repeating any dissatisfaction that you may have encountered. We value your business and I would like to personally address your concerns. Perhaps you can afford me the time to speak about your mediocre experience??? We have been established in Riverside, CT for close to 15 years {and have had - 6 other successful restaurants over the past 25 years} and while you are perfectly entitled to your opinion; this by far one of the harshest review anyone has given. In a world that thrives on negativity, wherein the social media distorts the truth, corrupts people's mindsets and seems to be getting darker and gloomier>>> the energy and manner that you took to write your review adds to the darkness. We are a family owned and operated establishment that caterers to families, nevertheless, we also appeal to corporate, business and couples. Our food is made with love, generous portions, reasonably priced with the highest quality possible. Yours very truly, Mark A. Mazzotta Proprietor
