Went on a Thursday evening in August. Place was about half full, and smelled wonderful as we walked in. We were promptly seated by friendly staff. And given our requested window table. Atmosphere is warm and low key with several vintage food posters by Cappiello. Server was knowledgeable about menu and specials. Pasta fagioli had a depth of flavor that... More

Very cozy and romantic. We started with pasta fagioli. Hearty and thick with great amounts of beans and pasta. I had Chicken Florentine with marina sauce. Yummy but be warned large dish but that's great for leftovers. Melts in your mouth. Hubby ate spinach ravioli which he said was delicious. No room for dessert. Oh for got to mention the... More

My wife and I went for dinner on a Monday night. We chose this place based on reviews I read on TA but don't get the high rating. The place was virtually empty and the hostess went to seat us in the worst table in the dining room! I asked her if she was kidding and had her move us... More

I met a friend for supper. We wanted to dine at a place that we had not tried before and we were delighted with our meal and service at Il Pomodoro. I'm had the daily special: grouper, lightly breaded, and served with pasta in a butter, lemon and caper sauce. 3 asparagus spears topped the dish. It was wonderful! The... More

Excellent food. The employee at the hotel we were staying at recommended this place. We are from Boston and eat in the North End quite frequently. This place is as good as any place we have eaten in the North End. We liked it so much we went twice. You won't be disappointed. Also reasonably priced.

We have ordered takeout twice before and food was just OK. We thought we would give it another chance to live up to its wonderful reviews by dining in. Dining atmosphere is very nice. Salads were fresh and crisp. Garlic knot rolls were yummy! Then the entrees came....Veal Cardinale was good, but honestly not memorable to order again. Chicken &... More

We stopped for dinner at IL Pomodoro on a recommendation from a friend. Food was delicious, pricing seemed right, attentive staff. Only challenge was the restaurant is very open so really sense of privacy

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!
