The staff is always so friendly here. The prices are reasonable, especially if you use the coupon in the Entertainment book. I dont even live very close to Pomodoro, yet I've been here more times than I can count on two hands, so they must be doing something right!

My favorite thing to get here is the eggplant parmesean. Its been cooked perfectly every time I have ordered it and the portion is so big I haven't been able to completely finish it yet!

On the negative side, I wish their bread was served warm rather than room temperature. Dipping it in olive oil and vinegar is still great though.

It can get a little jam packed in here too, and I would prefer booths to sit it. I realize its a small place though, so I understand.

I just went to Pomodoro today for the first time and was thoroughly impressed. I'm from Alaska and so I'm pretty difficult to please with seafood dishes but their Halibut Supreme was absolutely delicious. The service was great and friendly and the restaurant was small and classy. While it is a bit spendy, it's not bad at all for the amount and quality of the food that you get. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for some great italian style food.

I absolutely love the restaurant. It is just a small Italian restaurant off of six ave but the atmosphere and service is great. I would recommend there steak tower, but also love many things on there menu. Fresh bread to snack on and soup is amazing. I would definitely stop by and check it for dinner sometime if you are in the area.

The Best: I absolutely love this place. They always have great food, and wonderful friendly service. The chicken marsala is the best in town, I have tried it everywhere. Terry, the bartender is great at making drinks and always has a smile. They are busy so make reservations!

I had my first experience at Pomodoro recently and at first I thought I had found something special. The restaurant had a pleasant smell of roasting garlic and the many patrons were happily chatting and enjoying themselves. My friend ordered an antipasta plate. Initially, it looked impressive, however it turned out to be very disappointing. It had some kind of processed cheddar cheese and another white cheese I could not identify. It was most certainly not an Italian cheese. There was a sliced up meatball (huh?) and black olives. The waitress explained that their order of Kalamata olives had pits so they would not serve them. I eat olives with pits at restaurants all the time. The marinara sauce literally tasted like pureed Campbell's vegetable soup!
Luckily I ordered the soup instead of the salad. However, I got clam chowder with grit. There is nothing as gross as eating a sandy soup. My friends got the salad and it was surprisingly adorned with Fried Chinese Chow Mein Noodles !? I was so confused. My entree was ok, however it had tomatoes roughly chopped that still had the woody stem attached. Finally , dessert was inedible. The burnt creme tasted like scrambled eggs with sugar and the chocolate mousse was like a dense piece of sugar saturated lard. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. My ice tea was a winner. I liked how it tasted freshly brewed. The atmosphere of the restaurant was appealing at first, however when I went to the bathroom I had to maneuver around buckets of food remnants from the kitchen. Maybe I came when the cooks were having an off day. Obviously the place is a favorite of others as there was no shortage of willing eaters waiting to be seated. I doubt I'll be back.

Pros: Good ice tea, Somewhat good atmosphere

Cons: Terrible Terrible interpretation of Italian food

This is a great place for lunch or dinner. On nice days, they add seating outside on the sidewalk for overspill. The food is very good and reasonably priced. The ambiance is charming and the wait staff are friendly and efficient.Good wines.

Love Pomodoro and the prices are so reasonable we can go for almost any reason. Carbonara is my acid test for an Italian restaurant and these guys passed with flying colors. I don't know what it is these guys do that makes their garlic butter different but it is excellent. The husband loves their raspberry vinegarette and I am hooked on their in house made blue cheese. Entrees are generous and how can you argue with a menu that has nothing over $20? Wish they'd put the gnocchi on the dinner menu though. Tim is our favorite server (and he's in the pic on the site) although we've never had a bad one. They are friendly and efficient even when busy...and they are always busy. The place is usually packed but we've never had to wait more than a few minutes for a table.

There is a parking lot in the back if you just look so it's not just street parking although except on a Friday, Saturday or early on Sunday evening it's really not tough to park on the street either. I think we'll go tomorrow!

Pros: Everything?

I don't usually write reviews, but felt compelled to do so. I love Pomodoro. Whenever we go, we are made to feel like old friends, even though I'm not sure they really know our names. The food is great and plentiful. The service is friendly and quick and the drinks and desserts are fantastic. I do reccomend calling ahead for a reservation, particularly on weekends, it can get quite crowded and the location isn't all that large.

Pros: ambience, service, friendliness, desserts

Cons: parking can be a hassle - on street only. Don't be afraid to walk a few blocks, it's a great neighborhood.

Pomodoro used to be a great but has greatly changed over the years. I once ordered a creamy pasta dish, only to find a piece of plastic in it--the server was very apologetic. Orders have been messed up and food has been substandard. This spring, my silverware was filthy (like it was left from the previous inhabitants of the table). Because of previous experiences (we went there because a friend wanted to go), I only ordered soup. It arrived, I took a sip, and nearly choked. It was so salty that it was completely inedible. I'm usually the type to not make a scene, but then choose to not come back--in this case, since I really couldn't eat it, I had to say something. The waitress didn't believe me (until she tasted it) and was rude.

I ate there last night with a friend and it was great.. Very friendly staff.. Seemed like I knew them for years, they were so friendly. The restaurant has a very neighborhoody feel to it. Lots of students, young couples, and older couples. The food was great. Even though I couldn't finish even half because I was full before it even came. They don't let you go hungry. I have friends from Seattle who were down for a concert and want to find it but couldn't.. I reccommend this place highly..
