Everything from our appetizers to our pasta dishes are prepared using the original recipes, taken from regions, such as Tuscany to Sicily, through Campania to Piemonte. We are proud to be also the first certified "Neapolitan Pizzeria" in Maryland since the recipe of our pizza, from the dough to the toppings, meet all the requirements requested from the European Union. We are proud to bring the real Italy to Rockville! Buon Appetito! Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Friday night the weather was mild and Oro Pomodoro had all the doors open. We sat one row back from the doors, facing the town square, and so let the people-watching begin. Service was attentive with one notable flaw - grated cheese was not offered for a pasta dish and I had to ask for it (but then it was brought promptly). The food here is reliably good and tasty. Our appetizer of calamari was cooked nicely, and came with what I first thought was a garnish of a few fried zucchini sticks but as we shared the dish we noticed it was mostly calamari, about 1/4 fried zucchini, plus a large piece of what I think was fried Asian pear. So was this an attempt to cut down on the amount of calamari served? Pasta and chicken were very good."

  • "We had one of the worst meals for $70! Fish was frozen because they had run out of their special! Chicken was so salty that my 9 year old even made a comment about the salt~ HAD A LARGE party going on and kept using that as an excuse why they were running out of things or took a long time. The bread was the best part of the meal!"

  • "Celebrated hubby's birthday with lunch. I got a pizza lunch special (included a so-so Caesar salad), he got a Panini. Both were tasty. Pizza here is a winner - great crust, tasty toppings. Lots of food (more than I could eat). Our server was great. My husband ordered coffee with lunch, and he never had to ask for a refill. It was a cold day and there weren't many diners, so the restaurant was quiet."

  • "This restaurant offers some interesting menu options, not just the usual Italian fare. However, there weren't enough menus to go around when we arrived, and then after ordering the food took a long time to come out."

  • "The pizza in this restaurant is very good (it does look and taste as a real Italian pizza, not your typical American abomination). My wife and I have dined here once, and ordered take out pizzas several times; our favorite pizza is Oro Pomodoro which is made with goat cheese and pesto."

  • "I love the food here but always get the Oro Pompodoro pizza. It's so tasty and I only need to eat half (and then save the other half for lunch the next day!). I'm always impressed with the friendliness of the staff and how quickly I get my order."

  • "The only reason we went here on Valentines day was for a really good brick oven pizza. I mean this place has the best! However upon our arrival we found out they weren't serving pizza! No one gave us a heads up that they would have a set menu for the day and someone even called us earlier to confirm our reservation. The food was good but we wanted pizza!"

  • "You would be well served making reservations for Friday or Saturday - this is a popular place for a reason. The lighting is dim enough to be romantic, the food is great, and the staff are friendly and attentive. Finer food in a nicer, but welcoming setting."

  • "We spend our diner freezing, we were in the front side. There is a big problem of ther ic isolation. The antipasti we took (4different) were good, even if crostini are not warm bread with cold food on the top, but every thing (the toast and the top ) should be done in the oven, the name of what is on your menu is "bruschette"and not "crostini". Pasta is not al dente..... the ingrediente in pasta allo scolglio are coming from feeezer, not tastee at all. Dessert (tiramisu, panna cota)were good but didn't drive us crazy."

  • "Attended a lunch with friends. Great location and overlooks ice skating rink. I ordered a Ragu which was a mistake and could only be described as a bland glob of meat in tomatoe paste. Great bar area. Good service but not crowded."

  • "The food was certainly presentable and of reasonable quality but nothing particularly interesting nor creative. I may have been more inclined to return if it wasn't so pricey. I had been there once for lunch and once for dinner. Il Positano in Bethesda or Il Pizzico in Rockville are Italian restaurants in the same overall price range and a better value."

  • "the roasted vegetables with balsamic vinaigrette and feta were so good that plan to have that alone (rather than as an appetizer for two) for lunch next time; the ravioli a bit expensive for lunch and not as good as the roast vegetables; the rigatoni my lunch companion chose might have been better than the ravioli and the price more reasonable; definitely a slightly higher grade lunch choice in Rockville"

  • "The restaurant uses very good ingredients and prepares them well, but the food was a little bland for my taste. I am not looking for strong spices, but I want to taste some enhancement to the natural flavors of the ingredients. I would recommend the restaurant to friends who want good basic preparation, but not to those who go beyond the basics at home. The wine list, while small, is well chosen and reasonably priced."

  • "I recently met a friend for dinner here on her recommendation. The service was the best thing about this restaurant. I ordered hot tea and my teapot came without a lid. The Bolognese sauce was not impressive. The prosciutto and mozzarella was not very good either. Overall, the restaurant seems over-priced for the quality of food received."

  • "We had dinner at Oro Pomodoro on a night that Rockville Town Center had a band playing. It was a gorgeous summer night and the food at Oro made it better. We have eaten there before and never been disappointed. The food is always fresh as can be and wonderfully cooked as well as presented. Our service was perfect, as always. The doors were open to the outside and the band was easy to hear and very easy to enjoy!! In short, we will be back."

  • "The food was excellent as always! The service was good too. My one issue was how hot the restaurant was. It was steamy outside so we wanted to eat in the cool inside. It turned out to be steamy hot inside as well, which was pretty uncomfortable. Otherwise the experience was great."
