Surprise dinner with friends

After suggestions from out of town friends we dined at this marvelous restaurant. The food, service and atmosphere was great. The lasagna was the best I've had in quite awhile. We made reservations for Valentine's Day.

We ate here February 2015 and I couldn't wait to go back this year while visiting the area. LOVE everything about this place; the service, the staff, the food is outstanding w/portions large enough for leftovers and there is a $15 corkage fee to bring your own wine in. If you don't eat here you're missing out.

Good Italian food at reasonable price. Salad and garlic bun. Had enough for lunch tomorrow. Need reservations though. Wife had chicken and shrimp pasta. Worth it.

This was not our first time eating in this restaurant. Like the previous post, we have been there at least 5 times in the last few years and have always enjoyed it. Yes, there is a new owner. Apparently they have been in the restaurant business up north for several decades. They must have ironed out the problems mentionned below... More

Every year me and my wife spend a few months in the Fort Myers area, il Pomodoro has always been one of our favorite spots to dine. I was concerned when I heard the owners had changed hands but, the food is still as great as I remember. It's a shame I can't say the same about the waitresses, if... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We were seated in a timely manner. Our server was pleasant and efficient. We were brought rolls; one for each of us. We asked for more during our meal and were brought one more fo each of us. We ordered pasta bolognese and chicken parmigiana; both were good. We would come back.

This restaurant has got to be one of the best places to eat Italian food in South Fort Myers! Make a reservation for dinner during season because it can be busy.
