“Pull Your Socks Up Pomodoro's”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

My husband and I and our boys were regulars at Pomodoros, we have been eating there at least 2 or 3 times a month for the past 3 years. Sadly our favourite family haunt has come to an end as under the new ownership our experiences have been terrible! We have still yet to be greeted by the Management even though the staff know us and chat. The food is good but the service is awful. On Friday last we waited an hour for our starter and 40 minutes for our mains - both required chasing. No apologies were forthcoming from the Management although our poor waiter was deeply embarrassed and confessed that this type of service is now normal. The atmosphere in the restaurant the last 3 times we have visited has been chaotic and unpleasant and we really don't like the old menus with the new prices stuck on in sticky tape - very tacky. All in all we won't bother again which is a real shame.

“Best pizza's in Somerset West”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

The first time we went to Pomodoro, I was very surprised, didn't even know it existed, but I got immediately hooked on the quality of the pizza and the weekly specials. If you are keen on pizza and you are sick of the other pizza houses, then this one won't disappoint, you will be back :)
