    Pomo is my go to pizza place every Sunday evening. Being a creature of habit, this place provides amazingly consistent and delicious food. The Peppino Pizza and the Calizone are to die for. Once you go, you will be going weekly, at least.

    This is genuine Neapolitan pizza and other Italian delights, very much like eating in Italy. Service was great and the atmosphere was fun. No heavy meals, but excellent wood-fired oven pizza, panini, appetizers, pasta, and salads. Short but good wine list and several beers.

    We keep coming back to Pomo because of the food and service. The pizza's are the best, we have our two favs the capriocisa and principe but i am sure the others are great to. Their salads are also great, mango is our fav but the other' s are also good. We love the outside patio but indoors is also good. Its our neighborhood Gem. All servers are wonderful, my fav is Amy.

    The pizza at Pomo is good, not great. The crust was somewhat undercooked or just meant to be mushy. Toppings were good. Service was excellent - our server was helpful, not too intrusive, and had a great attitude. Sitting outside means you face a parking lot. There are much better outdoor dining venues in the Valley.

    I've been going to POMO for three years and the quality has remained superb. In my humble opinion, it surpasses Pizzeria Bianco and rivals Cibo for a red sauce pizza. Make a reservation, though--it gets busy!

    It was a hot, humid evening when we dined at POMO. But the restaurant had two of the roll up windows open for the bar. This made the restaurant uncomfortably warm and we couldn't wait to get out of there. The food has become only so-so. We will not go back.

    Pomo has been recognized as a great place for Neapolitan pizza and delivers a great product. The last time we visited, the quality of the pizza didn't meet our expectations and it was a little overpriced. We had a great server and enjoyed the time spent in the new location, at least triple in size from it's previous one. Be prepared to pay close to $100 for a dinner for two sharing an appetizer and a tiramisu ( a must have).

    ChanceVIP
    Dined on 6/29/2014
    Met some family while we where in Scottsdale for vacation. Their pizza is certified by the V.P.N. Verace Pizza Napoletana and the A.P.N. Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani, both associations are based in Napoli, Italy. We have tried several restaurants with theses certification across the country and have never anything but a great experience. Pomo Cucina didn't change our opinion. It was packed when we arrived and we had a short wait for a table of six. The wait was well worth it. As a group we had three pizzas, two salads, and a couple of pasta dishes. All the food was great, only two pieces of pizza left with to us be consumed later. If you like real Italian food you'll love this place.

    If you want a perfect comfy pizza meal - this is the place. Decent wine list by the glass or bottle. Several great salads - all of a size you will need to share. And several dozen different pizzas - all made to order and worth a short wait while they crisp them in their special oven. Can't decide? Get the Don Alfonso. ONLY weakness is a somewhat limited dessert menu selection. Instead go for a glass of Amaro!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 5/31/2014
    Pomo's sauvignon blanc was a perfect accompaniment to our meal. We began with bruschettas (plain, sorrentina, and mediterranean) and their verdure grigliate. The mediterranean & verdure grigliate were spot on. Time to sample their wood fired pizzas...so, we ordered the quattro stagioni and pizza chef. Both were tasty and had the right amount of char and chew. Without any vegan dishes featured on the menu, we requested a pasta dish for the vegan in our group providing suggestions on what to include (ie. mushrooms, garlic, etc.). However, when we received the dish, it was literally a bowl of pasta (nothing else) so she wound up taking some veggies from our pizza. Truly marred our otherwise pleasant evening at Pomo Cucina & Pizzeria.

    Food is excellent. Misters are apparently new; may need some tweaking- it was a little warm. Restaurant may also want to consider some large plants or something to improve the outdoor view. All that aside, food is incredibly fresh and options are great. Took a friend from out of town and had a nice evening out.

    No surprise that the pizza at Pomo is top notch if a bit pricy, but we had the mushroom soup as well and that was excellent. Service was a little slow but my guess is that is due to the place being packed and they can only do so many pizzas at a time.

  • Overrated - Major Hype
    DogulaVIP
    Dined on 5/3/2014
    We had high expectations, but were very disappointed. The pizza was just good, nothing special. This Naples certification just a bunch of hype. I'm Italian and have been to Italy and Pomo pizza would not even make my top 25 list. The pancetta on my pizza was all fat. All it added to my pizza was grease, because these pizzas do not spend much time in the oven, the pancetta was basically raw. Think of eating raw bacon fat slightly warm, that's what it tasted like. Also, the service was not good either. If you want good pizza go to Lamp Pizzeria (North Scottsdale), Humble Pie, Pizza Bianco, etc. If you want expensive, overrated & over hyped pizza then Pomo is for you.

    Friendly and efficient service. This is a busy place yet the service was exceptional. Water always refilled. Mango and and arugula salad was delicious and huge! Could share among 3 people! Pizzas were good though alittle soggy in the middle. Had 3 different pies...the vegetable pie with eggplant, zucchini and tomatoes was good outside crust delicious but was soggy in the middle, the filette pizza..white pie with the buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes seemed alittle undercooked. Would go back because the the service was good and even though the pies were soggy they were flavorful...
