We had not ben ti Il Pomodoro in a bit; tried to go there a couple of weeks ago and discovered that they are closed on Sunday evening in the off season. So we took advantage of the dinner coupon we had received and stopped in for dinner on a Monday evening. Since it is off season we had no problem getting a table and Linda, our server, was outstanding. We enjoyed a cocktail, heard about the specials and decided to order Veal Marsala for the hubby and Lasagna for myself. Hubby ordered caesar salad, I ordered house salad. The salads were fresh, well presented, and of course the warm garlic rolls added to the mix of flavors. My hubby's plate was loaded with mushrooms, great sauce and served on a bed of fettucine pasta. My lasagna arrived and I was like Whoa!! The serving was HUGE (sound familiar folks?), but it really was huge and I promptly separated it knowing most of it was going home with me. I always hesitate ordering lasagna when we dine out at an Italian restaurant, because nine times out of ten it doesn't taste as good as your own home cooking. Well this time, I was pleasantly surprised. The gravy was not too acidic, not too sweet, just right. It had a certain 'tang' to it, but it wasn't spicy by any means. It was nice and thick, but not overly so; I don't like thin, runny gravy. The lasagna had a mix of sausage, hamburger, and three cheeses in the layers. Outstanding, just outstanding.... Of course, no room for dessert, but it was a fantastic meal, great service, no rushing since it's off-season, and has become our favorite Italian restaurant.
We used to stand in line like cattle trying to get into popular Italian restaurant located on 41, but the menu was limited and the quality was not up to par. I'm glad we've found this gem, Il Pomodora is definitely our go to place for really good Italian food. The place isn't huge, but they do have tables for 2, 4, 8, or 10 folks. It's worth the trip. Just check for hours that they are open.
