Went here for my work Christmas party. The atmosphere was festive and the service was good. The bruschetta, spinach artichoke dip, and bread with balsamic was awesome! My entrée, however, was the mixed grill which was over cooked and inedible. My table mates who ordered pasta dishes complained that their food was under seasoned and kept reaching for the salt.

I have eaten there a few times over the last few years and I have always enjoyed the food. My favorite thing is their mango-lime dressing that I get with everything.

I was frusrated from another part of town with traffic, so I headed north on I75, went up a couple of exits and saw Pomodora advertised on one of the I75 "blue signs", so I turne off not knowing what to expect. It is off the road in a Publix shopping center. As I walked in, it did not fit... More
