Was not planning on eating here but the place we were going to had no availability, so on the walk back we decided to go in glad we did. We were greeted warmly by the owner and promptly seated on a Saturday night at 6...pm. The service was exemplary. From the moment we sat down to the time we left we were never forgotten about. The food was ok not great but not terrible. The bread and olives on the table were so amazing my mouth is watering as I write this review. The prices were very reasonable. If and when I am back in the area I will be coming back. The restaurant was kind of cramped but it was still cozy. The owner was a very personable man who greeted all his patrons and checked back on them throughout their meal this place did everything right. Very satisfied.More

The only reason I’m giving a poor review is due to payment of my bill My wife and I had a wonderful dinner at Pompdoro Rosso. The food was delicious and the service was very good When I paid the bill I used my credit...card. Instead of adding the tip to my credit charge I gave the server a $20 tip in cash on a 96.20 bill. Later when I checked my credit card I was billed an additional $15.00. I called the restaurant and explained what happened and asked the manager or owner to please call so we could receive a credit back on my card. This was over a week ago. I have not received the courtesy of a call back. I really do not like giving this review but I suggest that you keep copies of receipts like I do if you plan on dining at Pompodoro RossoMore

I made a reservation and was seated by a waiter. We sat down and another waiter came over and asked who seated us. How would I know his name? He said he had another reservation for my table. I asked him what he wanted to...do. He said we had to leave the table even though we had a reservation. He was rude and quite honestly a terrible host. We actually had to leave the restaurant. I’ll never go back.More

This was one of the worst Italian meals I’ve ever had. I order the special chicken Marsala. It should have been labeled lemon chicken because there wasn’t a hint of Marsala on the dish. Plus it was served with cheese on top…who ever heard of...serving chicken Marsala with cheese. There was a medley of over cooked vegetables and sausage…again what were they thinking? We also ordered profiteroles, another mistake. When delivered I had to ask the waiter what it was, thinking they had brought the wrong dessert. There was so much whip cream that you couldn’t see the profiteroles. Would never go back to this restaurant.More

The location is on the cozy west side and the ambience inside is lovely. The food was just good enough, but not worth the price for the quality. The eggplant parm was rubbery and super salty. The pasta was the most al dente I have...ever been served at a restaurant (and I am Italian and usually like al dente pasta, but this was just too firm). The sauce was unremarkable. Bread ok, salad good with a super salty balsamic dressing and very little of it. I've had much better eggplant at many restaurants in New Jersey at the shore. The owner couldn't be bothered to even look at me (middle aged white woman) or another middle aged white woman a few tables away. He greeted a couple who seemed to be regulars warmly, though. The rest of the staff was excellent and the service very good. Probably won't return.More

The worst attitude and discrimination on site. The waiter Goran, treats Asian guests with quite the attitude. My boys told him that it was my birthday as soon as we sat down, and Goran had no expression on his cold and stiff face, he walked...away: he only stays warm and attentive with white guests. Later he brought a birthday cake to a table where the guest is a white male celebrating birthday as well. We have been eating at that restaurant for more than 20 years, and Goran is the worst waiter. He chooses to ignore Asian guests, and only answers to white guests. He throws tabs to Asian guests and simply takes orders and leaves. The worst. Don’t think about ordering takeout from there as the restaurant Just ignores you. When you call and ask them where is the food, the guy would say “don’t put words in my mouth”, “the Wi-Fi is down, kitchen closed, we can’t cook your food.” The worst restaurant!More

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!

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
