“Just OK”
Reviewed December 14, 2012 via mobile

We just had dinner. We drove 45 mins to try this place because of the high marks on Trip advisor. Well, dissapointed. The food was mediocre. Very small portions. Price was fair, nice wine selection but I had to ask for more bread since the portions were small. We had clam luguine. There was about a cup and a half of pasta and about a dozen plus small clams. The saucee was pretty bland. I was never asked if I wanted more wine. The waitress was busy socializing with a couple she knew so our service was SLOW and she wasn't overly friendly unless she knew you.
We travel to Florence monthly but will pass on this place.

“Best Italian on the coast”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

The service was exceptional and the food delicious The menu is extensive and they have a nice wine selection. Make sure you make reservations as there are only a few tables and it is kind of tucked away off the main drag.

“Wonderful little Italian restaurant!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

My wife and I were visiting friends in Florence and were fortunate to have the opportunity to dine at this excellent little Italian restaurant. We had recently celebrated an anniversary on Orcas Island in the San Juan islands and ate at the top three restaurants in East Sound. La Pomodori beat them all hands down! The menu is varied and impressive for a small operation. We started with a warm brie and caramelized onion plate. A very generous serving which was simply delicious. All the entrees come with a salad or soup. My wife was hungry for greens so she went with the Caesar salad. Wonderful! All very fresh with again a really generous portion of fresh tasty parmesan cheese. I opted for the chicken lentil soup. (it had been a cool cloudy day) The soup was hearty and full of chunks of tender chicken. Very satisfying. Both our entrees were simply outstanding. Mine was a simple grilled halibut filet on a bed of fresh spinach with kalamata olives and tomato. Perfectly prepared and presented. My wife enjoyed a seafood pasta in a light cream sauce. she is still talking about how much she enjoyed it. The service was professional attentive and friendly. Oh yes we also enjoyed a very pleasant bottle of Italian white wine. All this, one starter, four mains and a bottle of wine came in at just over $100. I suspect it will be a while before we enjoy another meal that delivers on all counts as this one did.

“Not going back”
Reviewed September 18, 2012 via mobile

Early reservations, not many others in the restaurant but staff was trying to hurry us the moment we sat down. 3 times in 5 minutes what will you be having to drink?Actually got kinda testy with us. (Leave the bad day at home please). Food unremarkable. Ambience nice.
Won't be back, lots of other places better.
