Penne ala vodka with their soft bread is what I would suggest ordering if you are at this Italian place on the Upper West Side. Their house wine is great tasting too. If you are in the neighbourhood, Pomodoro is certainly a place I'd recommend dining at.

Pros: Food, Service, location

I have eaten here at least 50 times. The food is simply amazing, the service is excellent as well, the staff are extremely friendly. Unfortunately, the entire UWS also knows this, because the restaurant is always PACKED with a wait list.

Aside from occasionally feeling a bit "crowded" (and it should be) what can be said for this excellent Italian UWS favorite. Peter the host, and owner, makes you feel right at home. ALL dishes are beautifully prepared and are large in

The service here is rather bland - the waiter being of the smirked-nose etiquette. The restaurant is one of many on the Avenue so reservations are not needed despite the impressions that you might get. The decor inside is nice to observe

Great pastas with wonderfully fresh sauces. I highly recommend the spaghetti e gamberoni. Small, but romantic in a great area...and most importantly, at a good price.

My chicken special with asparagus was just so-so, but my friend's lobster ravioli in a white wine sauce was wonderful. Great service, nice wine list. Walked right in at 8:15 p.m. on a Saturday.
