“Good food”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Ambience- quaint place with a touch of Italian inside.

Service- we went on a Monday around 630 and it was a little busy but it was pouring rain so no outside sitting. I would recommend reservations to ensure a table. Boris was personable even though he was under pressure due to the weather and the increase in guests.

Food- calamari for appetizer. It was battered lightly which was good but very bland in taste even with the sauce. Unless they change it I don't recommend. The bread was served warm with oil. The crust balanced the rest of the bread. Tasty.
Ordered the Gnocchi dish. The sauce had a light taste but we asked for it. The Gnocchi wasn't doughy and it was a perfect portion. My husband ordered the penne alla vodka. This was hands down yummy. The vodka sauce alone was delicious. It had a few shrimps on top which were larger in size. It also had bacon included. I highly recommend this dish.

THEY DO NOT HAVE A KIDS MENU. they will work with you on splitting a plate or allow you to make a plate with your entrees.

Dessert- chocolate brownie with gelato ice cream drizzled with cayenne carmel. Shared among the 4 of us. It was sinfully divine.

“Fantastic service!”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Visiting Hilton Head for the first time and made reservations at Pomodori for a Saturday night. We were seated immediately and our table had a little chalkboard marker with our name which showed they took reservations as top priority. The space is cozy but very lively with staff members that are eager to please and very quick to serve.Our own waiter was not only really friendly and knowledgeable going through the nightly specials, he was very accommodating when the wrong appetizer was brought out prompting us to go ahead and enjoy on the house while we waited for the correct one. After each course someone would quickly clear our table and refill pur drinks. Our pasta dishes were delicious, piping hot, and in perfect proportion. What really stands out is the staff's prompt responses and their genuine interest in all guests. They all seemed to be really invested in guests enjoying their experience and it shows.

Pomodori had done it again. I have certain foods that I can't eat, and Pomodori was very accommodating. The made zucchini into spirals to act as noodles, and I was able to enjoy the wonderful sauce and seafood. Always love the Caprese salad. I'm never disappointed with a meal there.
