“Lovely food and service, smelly toilets!!!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

The food and service were lovely and the restaurant itself is very nice but as we were at the table at the top of the stairs, the aroma from the toilets downstairs was quite off putting. it was a shame because the rest of it was obviously very proffessionally ran, but for me this was enough to put me off returning, a real shame.

“An Italian restaurant in Riga well worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

Very nice restaurant in Old town with friendly atmosphere. Good food for a low price. It is tucked from the "mainroad" in Old town, so you don't see it so easily.

“Expected more ...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2012

I have been there with my friend! I ordered pizza (funghi& prosciuto) which cost 6,40 LVL / 9,10 EUR. The mushrooms on the top were cheap chapignons and prosciuto was more likely Latvian sausage. In addition, it was not brought slightly warm and when I was in the middle of pizza it was already cold. I also ordered a glass of wine of Pino Grigio and it was brought too warm not at 8 degrees as it should be. The servise was ok, quickly served and the waitress was nice.

“Pomodoro is a hidden gem in Riga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

I wen to Pomodoro for the first time this summer. We sat outside and had a wonderful lunch. Since then, I've been back quite a few times and it never disappoints. The food is delicious, the waitresses are wonderful and the atmosphere both inside and outside are pleasant. It's the kind of place where you can go with a girlfriend just to hang out, for a romantic dinner or with a bunch of friends for a lively evening. Pomodoro is fantastic!

“Very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

As an absolute lover of Italian food, I have to say this was quite delightful restaurant.

tasty Italian cuisine with a touch of southern Italy traditions. A lot of value for your money as all dishes were tasty and very well prepared. Very nicely decorated and the atmosphere exudes warmth.

Waiter was polite and absolutely stunning! :)

A definite place to visit again.
