“Pomodoro's”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

This restaurant can be like a home away from home. Yes, occasionally it's quite noisy because it's popular. But go there on a weeknight, instead of Saturday, or go on the early side and it's good. It is romantic, hip and friendly, with really good food, drinks and a great vibe. The bartender and waiters are great, particularly Sam, and will make you feel very at home. The food is delicious and portions are rather big- remember that they only take cash. They don't mind splitting dishes and sometimes even give regulars a free dessert (or used to, I know!).

“Tasty Italian Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Shared dinner with friends: 2 of us had pasta dishes, third had the sea scallops. All of us enjoyed our meals: commented that they were all rich with good cheese, truffle or mushroom flavors. Crusty bread and olive oil and olives shared over an excellent red wine. Restaurant is small and was noisy as a result; had to have conversation over nearby loud table. Service was excellent.

“The best Italian in the Boston area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

Despite its location in suburban Brookline this place has a great atmosphere. The clientele consists of locals who know that this is the best Italian restaurant in the area and makes for a relaxed unpretentious rxperience.

The food is consistently good and there is enough variety on the menu to satisfy whatever you feel liken from a one course after-work dinner to a celebration. The room is cosy and always lively.

“Good not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2013

Went with another couple ... we all got different pasta dishes --- we all felt the food was good - but super expensive - Portions are okay - not big, not small. Restaurant is very small and tight and we sat by the open kitchen and it was terribly hot.

“Great Romantic restaurant, tasty foods!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

I've been here a few times now but came for a family dinner here and was very impressed. The bread and olive oil is delicious and the food was very good!

Service here is great, and the space is very small, so that adds to the ambience (without being noisy and crowded).

One word of advice is to have cash - they don't take credit cards. Two of the times I've been here and not orded desert, they brough it anyway.

Definitely a place to go on a date and have a wonderful meal!
