Recommended to us by a friend who lives in the neighborhood, this gem of a restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was great, and the service was outstanding. Everything we ordered was exceptional. The desserts were divine. Oh, and there was limoncello.... Fantastico!

This restaurant is located right outside of Central Park, upper westside, within walking distance. We were in the City to watch The Rockettes although cancelled, and made reservations for dinner here. We wanted a place easy on the wallet, but tasty, and this place was...just the right place. We love the covered outdoor seating option, to be able to watch the cars and people go by, which is heated by the way. The city in December is beautiful. The waiter seemed to enjoy his job, and was very pleasant. We all had dinners, and very satisfied, chicken and veal parm, T-bone and the tortellini in cream sauce. Loved the cream sauce, more of an Alfredo sauce then light cream. We topped if off with wine and dessert. Very happy with our stop in the city at Pomodoro.More

We stopped in for dinner. We had reservations but were a little late due to storms. They had our table ready for us when we got there. Our waiter took our order. Our food came quickly and was very good. The staff were back and...forth constantly with more water or for what ever we need. The bread they bring out is excellent.More

I come here often with my husband and I’m never disappointed! The owner (Peter) is so friendly and accommodating and the staff are professional. The food is sooooo good and reasonably priced…not to mention the bartender (Velto)…the best!

We love this place. The food is fantastic and the price is always right. The Tagliagette spinach pasta and shrimp is an absolute favorite full of flavor. The lobster ravioli are delicious and generous in size. Since moving to the Upper West Side we vote...this place as our favorite go toMore

Went there on a sunny afternoon on a Sunday. Little did we know that the next day all restaurants in NYC would close (Corona). The restaurant is on the cozy Upper West Side. Tree lined streets everywhere. The bar section is intimate, and has a...classic feel to it. The restaurant looks very friendly inside. We sat at the bar. Afternoon, it was perfect time for a beer, Grappa and espresso, just like it's done in Italy. the espresso came with a slice of lemon rind, which gave an extra flavor. Hope to be back soon!More

Restaurant is about 5 blocks from Lincoln Center, but in the West 70s, so there is a mix of locals and Lincoln Center visitors. Very nice. The food was wonderful. Believe it or not, the highlight (or at least one of them) was the bread....The wine was wonderful. Each member of our family had a different fish dish and each was as good as the other. The service was quite good, and a special shout out to the young man who, after one of us sipped from our water glass, refilled the glass. He was more attentive than anyone I've ever seen at a restaurant. The only negatives were that the tables are tight and, because of that, you can hear everything -- and I mean everything -- the people sitting next to you are saying. Otherwise, wonderful experience. Just try to go when it's a little less crowded.More

We were looking for a place near Lincoln center that had a comfortable, warm intimate feel. We found it at Pomodoro. Made reservations, but we did get there 15 minutes early, and table was ready for us. Traditional and some more eclectic choices were available....All choices we made were delicious. All staff were attentive and friendly. Nice wine list and dessert, although we were more than full after two appetizers and our entrees. Bread baskets with oil and older ves were wonderful, and they kindly refilled the basket for my bread- loving boys. I did have a cappuccino to the end the night and it was on point. I would definitely return to Pomodoro and we look forward to exploring the menu further.More

Maybe it was the large party of 10 who arrived just after us or maybe it was the post holiday blues.... but whatever it was, my most recent dining experience at Pomodoro Rosso can only be summed up in one word.... disappointing. Having ventured up...to the area of the Lincoln Center to see a wonderful small museum, The Museum of American Folk Art (see my review) I searched on Trip Advisor for a nearby restaurant to eat. I searched for Italian, French and seafood restaurants and Pomodoro Rosso showed up as one of the top places priced at between $$ and $$$ . Granted the restaurant was ranked at #845 of the 10,000+ restaurants in NYC , but that still placed it in the top 10% which I concluded was high enough to insure that I would have a decent meal..... but that was a bad assumption. On the positive side the interior is very warm and inviting.... it can get a bit noisy given. the number of tables squeezed in but none the less it was fine. The same goes with the service ...it was pleasant and efficient. Accept for the bread and service, the entree , the wine, the prices and the value were all disappointing... Whenever I try out a restaurant for the first time, not knowing what they specialize in, I stick to the basics . If an Italian restaurant cant prepare good basic Italian dishes I'm surely not going to venture trying their specials of the day. Consequently, I ordered the veal parmesan and my friend ordered a pasta dish with salmon. In less than 5 mins time from placing our order our dishes were served.... my guest and I looked at one another and my guest questioned how the food could have been carefully prepared so quickly ? hmmmm, I wonder <G> ....This clearly was not a good sign. The food arrived piping hot as if it had just been removed from the microwave ... although the presentation was fine, both dishes lacked any distinct flavor and the veal was just tough and tasteless and way too hot to enjoy without letting it cool down.... when they say something tastes like shoe leather this was the case with this veal. Along with our entrees we ordered two glasses of average house wine that at $14/ glass was way over priced. After finishing our wine and paying our $80 + bill for lunch , my guest and I quickly departed seeking another establishment to enjoy desert and coffee. Its really quite sad that in a city known for great Italian culture and cuisine how hard it is to find a good Italian restaurant. Although there is a GREAT place in SoHo if you look for it in my list of reviews.More

If you want delicious food and great service, this restaurant certainly delivers. We had the veal piccata and the shrimp sautéed with garlic. Our meals were cooked perfectly. The only downside to this restaurant is that it is cramped. You feel like you are sitting...with your neighbors table; especially at the tables for 2.More

We loved this restaurant! There was plenty of seating which can sometimes be tricky in the buildings in NYC. The murals on the walls were reminiscent of old Italy, but made for good backdrops for group pictures. It's on a main road in the UWS,...close to the Beacon. The food was delicious. They gave large portions and the ingredients were select. I had a bow-tie pasta, wild salmon (not farm-raised), and veggies in a garlic butter sauce. Others at my table had a seafood combination that was thoroughly enjoyed as well as the large side salads. It is a bit pricey, but for a special meal, this fits the bill. Bon Apetit!More
