Delicious food, awesome vibe
Delicious food, awesome vibe yet still very intimate. Went with a group of 7 and it was great.

A very good restaurant. Spiedini was off the hook! The Osso Bucco was very good. Prices were extremely reasonable considering the quality. I'll be back.

Such an accommodating place
Such an accommodating place for being in the hippest place in Nashville. Warm, beautiful decorations and adorable little cast iron skillets for sides! A great, relaxing night out.

Came in with no expectations
Came in with no expectations having just drove by the day before and scrambling to find a place to eat with the family the night after graduation. I was very pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere and decor, a fine/casual vibe which was relaxed. Service was good and very friendly, though at the end I felt a little hurried, asking about dessert / checks before we were finished entrees. Overall a successful and very enjoyable experience.

Had a wonderful dinner date with my wife here. Just enough vibe and class but not out of sight prices. Food was very well put together, tons of flavor interest. It was a pleasant atmosphere to just take your time, have a couple drinks after a great meal.
We will go back for sure.

A new favorite place...
Our first time at Pomodoro East and definitely not our last! Food was incredible and the service was amazing. Can't wait to come back for another experience!

Potato gnocchi was yum
It was the first time I had tried potato gnocchi and it was great, the ingredients were fresh and the favors were vibrant. Food that first appeals to my eye then to my mouth! Tried a piece of the pizza and it too is worth the trip.

I planned another gathering of my gal pals at Pomodoro East. They loved it the first time and wanted to return. Kudos to our server, Ross! The Happy Hour menu and drinks were perfect for TGIF, and our entrees were perfect. Love this place!

Second time as good as the first
After our great meal the first time, I was prepared for a letdown. Thankfully Pompodoro East proved me wrong. The Carpaccio was delicious. The Caesar Salad was perfectly prepared. And the Braised Rabbit was a savory treat. With its convenient location in the neighborhood, we will definitely be returning.

My fiance and I wanted to local eatery with outdoor seating and ambiance. We went online to try and make a reservation, it was quick and easy to do at Open Table.
We ended up sitting out on the patio bar seating which turned out to be even more enjoyable than at a table due to the view. The food was great, try the spinach side-soo delicious! And the waiter we had, Nick, was very charismatically funny and knew the food menu, a blessing! We will be back for sure!

Great food great environment
My wife wanted something low key but good for her birthday so we choose this place. The service was fast and friendly. I ordered the chicken parmesan and my wife ordered the margherita pizza. Both of the dishes was great ! The portions were big and the food was tasteful. The sever was nice and attentive. I plan on going back with some friends.

Gem in East Nashville
Received a recommendation to go here while in Nashville for a conference so we went. Very friendly server and good service. Large deck for outdoor seating. Solid Italian food with a few interesting additions. Recommend for anyone wanting to try something off the beaten path.

Great place to celebrate. Not too noisy, great music, delicious food, friendly service. Can't wait to go back!

Nashville First Timer
Grilled peach salad and pork amazing! Pizza outstanding in taste and price. Server was knowledgable and attentive and made the experience more fun. Would definitely be here often if I lived in the area.

My girlfriend and I dined at Pomodoro East on a whim; It left us speechless. We went in around 7 and there were lots of open tables. Which we attributed to Pomodoro being off the beaten path. But once seated our server was bright and informative. It was clear he knew the menu, through trial. We started witht he calimari. It was perfectly cooked, lightly breaded, and the marinara was amazing. My girlfriend had the Veal, which was phenominal. I had the special that night, crab cake on a bed of greens with smashed squash garnished with bacon. All i can say is wow. Dinner blew us away. Dessert was thier "flourless chocolate cake", but where i come from we call that fudge! I highly recommend Pomodoro for your next night out or family event.

Personable wait staff.
The wait staff has to be one of the nicest in town. Always greeted with a smile and very helpful.
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food, slow kitchen
Our party of 6 enjoyed eating here. All the food was very good. We had a couple appetizers, salads and entrees. It was a slow pace for the meal which was fine for us since we were just chatting. But....we were there about an hour and a half with no dessert course.
The kitchen just looked like it didn't have enough room to handle a Saturday night crowd, and the restaurant wasn't even full.
Hopefully they can turn enough tables and stay open. We would definitely go back.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took out of town guests this time
And they were very impressed! The Chicken Parmesan was the consesus best, but, we all enjoyed our entree's. Desserts are big enough to share! Bring back the Duck Ravioli!!!!!!!
7/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Overall a great time
Pomodoro is always a fun time for friends. This week we brought family and we absolutely loved it. There was a bee server there and she was fantastic. The food is always amazing and the restaurant decor is lovely.

great place to dine
This place was the perfect spot to start or even end s great date
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Absolutely love this place! We got the cheese plate (a bit small portions but delicious), the stuffed portabella and the olives for appetizers. The proscuitto pizza, eggplant tortellini, and bolognese for dinner. The bolognese was the best I've had in awhile, the gnocchi in that dish was exactly as gnocchi should be (and very often isn't)-little pillows of love. I cannot wait to go again and sample more dishes, and sit on the patio, it was raining when we went. The prices were very reasonable too.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Italiano w/ a Southern Flair.......
Is that possible? Yep. Fried green tomatoes on the same menu as Spedini. The interior feels pizzeria but don't let that fool you, this place is for real. Farm to table, and I believe it. Great for just apps.
Eggplant Napoleon - mind blowing
Spedini - They used white bread instead of semolina loaf but it was very tasted once we got over it
Four Cheese Penne - One of the best we have ever had. The cheese flavor exploded
Crispy Polenta - w/ bolognese (red sauce & meatball) loved it
Wife - special tomato dish (devoured)
3 sons - Thin crust pizza, great sauce, love it
Tortellini w/ eggplant that screamed fresh
Strawberry Shortcake. Five spoons fighting for dominance, gone in 30 seconds!

Great Expectations Were Met.
Took my girlfriend to dinner here after a friend, East Nashville native recommended Pomodoro East to me. Needless to say we were not disappointed. The staff is friendly and eager to serve the customers, and our server was timely and courteous. We had the Bolognese, and the Shrimp and Crab Pasta. Both dishes were thoroughly enjoyable. For dessert we had the Tiramisu (which my friend also recommended), and it was some of the best I can remember.
The atmosphere is casual but classy and conducive for friendly conversation, and the food is reasonably priced. Pomorodoro East seems advantageous to any sized party. I am glad we went and we will be back in the near future to try the pizza!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Crowded but good
Five in our party. We enjoyed sampling each others food....everything was good. Seated on time. good experience.
Only hic cup was when one member asked for a warm up for their coffee and a waiter told her "we have 8 people waiting for this table"...but served her anyway!
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Will go back.
I highly recommend this restaurant. The happy hour drinks and menu were great. The main menu was fabulous. Great tasting food all around. Perfect place for date night and or business meeting. It has the atmosphere suitable for both. However, don't follow Google maps for directions use a GPS because if you are not familiar with East Nashville, it's hard to find.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect new Date Night find. My husband and I split a pizza.. and it was delicious! Most definitely will go back!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pomodoro never disappoints. The new olive brine is superb, my eggplant tortellini was delicious, the Limoncello Pork decadent, and the service perfection.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience!
Pomodoro East has a great vibe, excellent staff, and delicious food......
Another reason to go East in Nashville!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went around 8:30 on a Saturday night and we were one of the only groups there. The patio is big and very nice! B-Y-O-W for only a $15 corkage fee! The food was great and very reasonably prized (the pizzas we got were $10-$12). Parking was easy, service was fast- overall, I would highly recommend! Would love to try for Happy Hour, the cocktail menu looked great.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I brought my parents to celebrate my Mother's birthday and could not have been more pleased. The service was excellant and the food awesome. Hats off to the chef. I had the eggplant tortellini and it was delicious.

The Nashville Surprise
This restaurant was a gem. I was surprised by the quality and variety of food. I will eat here everytime I'm in Nashville
9/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cocktail were wonderful! My husband had a marguerita and I had a Cosmopolitan. My husband ordered the chicken parmigiana and it was delicious; however, I order the pork dish and the meat was tough. Overall, the dinner was good. We would go back.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoyed this place. We got to sit on the patio and it felt like we were at a beach with wine. It was quiet so my date and I were able to talk easily and the server didn't get in the way either. It really was perfect.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Matt server was great, Food was great, made for a memorable anniversary!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
loved the pizza
i would recommend ordering the pizza - our table had three different pizzas (chicken, sausage, fig & pig) and all three were excellent! someone in my group had the eggplant tortellini and was not impressed with the quality of the dish (menu price $19). outdoor seating was great.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We will be back!
My husband and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary at Pomodoro East this past weekend. We had never been before, but we had heard great reviews. Our server was delightful. I have a serious food allergy and he went above and beyond to ensure that we were able to enjoy our meal (without a trip to the ER!) We both ordered the grilled peach salad. I could've eaten a bucket of that salad and been perfectly happy - I just might do that next time! We also ordered the fig and pig pizza (delish!) and the gnocci bolognese (hearty!) The atmosphere was very quiet and romantic (although we intentionally scheduled late reservations). 2 salads, 2 entrees, 3 glasses of wine and dessert was approx. $80. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
We sampled a variety of appetizers, entrees and desserts, and they were all delightful. The goat cheese brulee on the cheese plate was stupid good. The fried pear pies wrecked us in the best possible way. And the bolognese stole the whole show. Our server was first class. The whole dining experience was well worth the drive from Franklin. Will definitely do it again.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great local gem, in East Nashville. We go here often and are never disappointed
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A surprise gem in a mini mall.
Pomodoro is a treat, tucked away in a mini-mall. We decided to go for our 43rd anniversary, when the Scollop Scampi, was featured on Talk Of The Town.
The food was delicious and the service stellar. The delightful, professional, and attentive server, Tamara, added humor and great energy to our experience. My date had strip steak and sautéd butternut squash, and I, Apple Braised Short Rib. We also enjoyed an appetizer of Arborio Flour Crusted Calimari, the best calimari ever. I am almost pleased that they were out of scallops.
We have season tickets to the Symphony, and will make Pomodoro a regular stop...to try everything on the menu.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The four of us had a wonderful experience Friday, October 18 2013. Our server was solicitous without hovering and had excellent wine and food recommendations. We all four enjoyed our entrees tremendously, and shared one of the best bottles of wine we'd had in quite some time.
It had been awhile since we had been to Pomodoro, and it seems to us they have improved overall.
We will be back again soon.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time. Food was wonderful and service was excellent. Not our first time there and won't be our last !!

The jewel of the neighborhood.
Wow what a neighborhood gem we found in Pomodora East. Food was unexpectedly delectable. The ambience much more than expected. Service was superb. Overall, the dining experience was one of the most matchless that we have had in quite some time. This is a MUST try.
