I have enjoyed several meals at il Pomodoro over the years. I recently return and cannot tell you why it has been so long since I had last been there because it was a fabulous dinner!

My husband and I frequently dine at Il Pomodoro for both lunch and dinner. Arrive early for dinner on Friday and Saturday evenings and have one of their nightly specials. It is always something delicious. They have a very nice win offerings as well as house wines by the glass. The portions are very large so plan to take home... More

Found this gem on Trip Advisor last night. We are vacationing in Ft. Myers and wanted Italian food for dinner. This restaurant got 4 and 1/2 stars, so we thought we'd give it a try. The atmosphere was welcoming, romantic, quiet and lovely. The waitress was very pleasant and attentive. She brought to the table scrumptious garlic rolls right from... More

The food is becoming to predictable and full chunks of garlic. When you take a bite and you get 3 cloves of garlic, that is just a little too much. Unless you have Elvis as a waiter you will wait on everything! She wrote down the wrong order for me, I said okm I will eat it. Not even and... More

Decided to go to this place because it was close to our hotel and we were tired of seafood. So glad we did. The place is beautiful inside. Our server Thresa was excellent. We both had spaghetti with sausage and it was delicious. However, I did ask for additional sauce for mine and was brought a small bowl. The portions... More

Very nice Italian style restaurant with a varied menu to suit most tastes. Pizzas and pasta dishes are always a good choice.

We have been dining here for years, however they are under new ownership. I must say their Caesar salad is cold and crisp and we get the dressing on the side. Their small pizzas are absolutely incredible with a nice crispy crust and plenty of toppings as we get pepperoni, ham and green peppers. Karen or Ina are our servers... More

Heard about this Italian restaurant, checked out the reviews, and decided to go for dinner. The place is very small. We had reservations and were seated immediately and then the place filled up. Very, very noisy when full. Two of us ordered lasagna, one spaghetti and meatballs and the other ordered a special with fish (Grouper). Grouper looked and was... More
