I've lived in the neighborhood for years but never tried Pomodoro. Five of us dined there last week, and what a surprise. Food was delicious, service was good, and everyone enjoyed the outing. Definitely worth a try!

Great food, not great service
I came here with my cousin and my sister to enjoy some company and some laughs. The restaurant definitely tries to give you an authentic Italian feel... but the table cloths look like picnic settings to me. Either way, the food was amazing, a little pricy, but welcome to New York. The service wasn't so great... really hard to get the attention of the waiter. Had to get up a few times to get their attention.

Superior Neighborhood Italian
While not a "destination" restaurant, Pomodoro Rosso is certainly a step above most neighborhood restaurants. Very, very good food, nice energy and ambience, good service.

I have lived on the UWS for three years and walked past Pomodoro many times. I finally tried it Friday night when I had friends visiting from Singapore and it was fantastic. Not only was the food great, the wait staff was really nice. When we arrived for our reservation, the host informed us that the table would be ready in a few minutes as the previous customers were just paying their bill. The host was really nice and friendly and handled the fact that our table wasn't ready really well so we didn't mind the short wait- unlike so many places that imply that you are "lucky" to be given the opportunity to wait 30 mins for your reserved table. No pretense or attitude here, just a really happy atmosphere, good vibe and great food.

Why a find
While visiting friends in Manhattan, we were on our own for dinner one night. Stumbled across this gem in our neighborhood and knew we had lucked out. Food, service and ambience were outstanding. My husband and I both raved about our dinner selections. We even managed to fit in a fab dessert. Later we found that Pomodoro was a favorite of our friends. We plan to return on our next visit! What a great place!

Even though it was a night in November in New York City, they were seating people outdoors and it was very pleasant. The restaurant was very busy, but they kept things moving and it was obvious that those who knew the restaurant were willing to wait for a table. Good sign.

My husband and I were in the city for the marathon. We were looking for a New York Italian restaurant experience.
After reading reviews, we decided to give this plan a try.
The reviews were right on. The food was incredible, the service was impeccable, and it was one of the most pleasant dining experiences we have had.
This gem is worth finding and walking to.

Decent food at a reasonable price
We had to wait for our table, but the Maitre D was very pleasant about it. Regarding the food, you get what you pay for. I was not crazy about the salmon, but the other diners enjoyed their meals. Good moderate priced wine. I'd go back again, but not too soon.

Fabulous food and great service
I love Pomodoro Rosso. It can be hard to find a casual restaurant with reasonable prices on the Upper West Side. This one is a gem. Great old style Italian food, friendly family atmosphere, great service. My daughter attends college nearby, and we will return every time I visit her. I recently took my father here, and we had an excellent experience as well. It is the kind of place you want to come back to!

We love going here as a family, and we go almost weekly. Great food, great service, and very kid friendly. It's our 4 year old that often suggests we go here! We’re so glad it's a couple of blocks away as it will continue to be our go to place for great Italian in the neighborhood.

reliable Gem on the Upper West Side
Pomodoro Rosso is a great restaurant where one can always rely on delicious food and a most hospitable staff. We have been coming here for many years, the experience is always delightful, even festive. Though bustling with big clientele, always feel special treatment by the staff, this is a component as important as the great meals there.

Great dining experience
I had a 6:30 reservation on a Saturday night just prior to attending an event in Lincoln Center. The restaurant was jam packed but the staff was very pleasant and accommodating. The food was delicious,the service was great and the whole evening was well paced leaving us just the appropriate amount of time to make it to the event. Overall it was a great experience.

Great West Side Italian Restaurant
My friend and I are repeat diners because of the great food, reasonable cost, and great service. Despite being a little cramped, we are never disappointed with the food whether it is a pasta, meat or fish dish the food is always delicious. Great sauces. The PAPPARDELLE AL CROSTACEO that my friend had was very tasty, the pasta cooked perfectly. I had the special, Lamb Shank and it was lean and came off of the bone easily. And, if you want a treat try the lemon sorbet, it is served in a lemon and I always order it. The waitress was helpful, friendly, efficient, and above all remembered us from past visits. If in the area make a reservation and you will not be disappointed.

A Lincoln Center Area Find
We were a party of six, attending a Lincoln Center performance and came for dinner before the show. We ordered quite a few dishes to share, and everything they put on the table was first rate. We will definitely return.
