Two of these locally owned restaurants in the area. One on Long Shoals Rd and the other on Hwy 70/Tunnel Rd. All meals have been superb whether eating there for lunch, early bird dinner or celebratory dinner. The owners strive to achieve quality dishes using alot of locally grown produce. And it works! The ambience is upscale with an international hip vibe.

My husband & I ate Sunday brunch at Pomodoro's during a weekend trip to Asheville. The food was amazing, most especially the calamari which was absolutely astounding. The service was also excellent. It is not located in Asheville's restaurant district so it is a bit of a drive, but well worth it.

"This was our very first visit to Pomodoros and from the moment we entered until the moment we left, it was the most pleasant dining experience. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately.
Throughout our dinner, our glasses were kept full, our empty plates whisked away - all unobtrusively. Immediately after ordering our meal, fresh-baked, still-warm-crusty on the outside, soft and dense on the inside - Italian bread was served with a nappy-dish of fine Olive Oil and herbs for dipping.
We ordered the Calamari to start. It was a beautiful, tender melt-in-your-mouth dish. The sweetness of the Balsamic reduction contrasted well with the pepperoncini (banana peppers) and diced tomatoes to create an explosion of flavor in the mouth. I could easily have eaten that as just a meal in itself.
We both chose the soup-of-the-day (rather than a salad) which was a smooth and thick potatoe and cheese soup that was well-flavored and prepared. Delisioso!
For our entrees, my husband ordered the Veal Saltimbocca which was tender to the butter knife. It had just the right amount of prosciutto and mozzarella cheese melted on top. It was served with roasted potatoes and fresh stir-fried baby spinach. I ordered the duck which was cooked to perfection! It was tender, succulent, & juicy...the skin was just crispy without any toughness to it. My dish was served with slices of tasty, cheesy polenta as well as the baby spinach.
We were quite full after our meal, and had no intention of having dessert. However, after spying a Tirimisu being served at the table next to us, we admitted to ourselves that perhaps if we shared, we might just be able to have a bit of dessert. It was THE BEST Tirimisu - short of a trip to Italy! The sponge cake was indeed properly soaked in the appropriate espresso and liquers and the
marscapone was delectible. As a side note - the coffee was the perfect finishing touch.
When we first looked at the menu, we felt it was on the pricey side...but we must admit to Pomodoro's being worth every bit of what we paid for the pure joy of exquisite food and service!
"We will be back!"

ADDED NOTE: There are now TWO Pomodoros to choose from!!!

At first glance, Pomodoros Greek & Italian cafe appears to be a chain-style restaurant, but when you get a look at the menu, you realize there is more to this place than you might expect. The menu has a great selection of appetizers, some wonderful salads and an impressive collection of pastas and entrees. Prices (for dinner) are reasonable ranging from $10 to $22. There are your traditional favorites, Pasta alfredo with broccoli and chicken, lasagna, moussaka, veal saltimboca, spanikopita, etc., and some not so traditional items like the "Filet Ricco", "Porco Farcito" and "Scallops Rosa Maria". But the real reason to show up is the wide variety of specials which change nightly. Here the chef really flexes his creative muscle and creates some truly unique and delicious treats! Fresh seafood is a common theme on the specials menu as well as seasonal vegetables, often grown locally by organic farmers.
