The service was terrible. We received our appetizer after a long wait and not 2 minutes later the entrees arrived. We actually had to request new entrees, not the ones they delivered kept warm.

Outstanding food, service and Ambiance. Really liked all the food- nothing negative to talk about. Make sure to save room for some amazing gelato- as this place shares room with a home made gelato maker which is equally awesome.

Keep up the great work!

Good overall experience at Pomo. Service was fine. Pizzas very good as always and salads were good. Reserve red wine whether by the glass or anew bottle was “off” not the smoothness it should have had. White was only o k as well. We’ve had better at Pomo in the past. We were with family visiting from out of town and are not used to being rushed during a special occasion. Unfortunately, the server brought a check before we were offered dessert or coffee. We corrected her and did get to have our visit as well as meal. Considering we began at 3:45 rushing us while tables are open was a mistake, especially since we tip very well. We did 20% but if not pushed it might have been more.

We've enjoyed Pomo for several years. It's not your everyday Italian restaurant, but it is authentic and good. The menu doesn't change much which is a drawback, but the specials are good and nice for a change.

As usual we did enjoy our dinner. A couple of things that could be improved upon.
1. Rimini pizza was burnt around edge. I know it is a very thin pizza but it should not burnt.
2. My mothers salad had dry chicken breast in it. When you are paying that much for a salad and a meal they really need to bring the quality up to a higher standard.
3 The gelato was served in a plastic cup with small plastic spoon. When you are eating in the dining room it should be served in regular dinnerware and with real cutlery. Not take out plastic and paper items

4. The waitress could have known the menu a bit better. I believe waitstaff should have tried everything on the menu so they can at least give their personal experiences.

We love eating here and do so often. We love the noise level (bc we have a noisy 4 yr old so he fits right in) and we love the ambience. Food is incredible. Our experience is typically great however the last three times we’ve had the same server and she is not so great! All three times we’ve been with her she has taken an eternity to even just greet our table and she has forgotten one or two items off our order - yes people make mistakes but it seems to be a recurring situation. I can even be forgiving if she didn’t have the personality of a wet mop. Not a smile on her face and always a little too eager to clear our plates. It’s almost like she can’t wait to get us out of there. On a Saturday night we want to sit and enjoy our meal Instead of feeling rushed and bothersome.

Soggy Pizza in the middle doesn’t do it for me. Are we supposed to like it because it is the real deal?
Pastas are tasty but over cooked. But the gelato is heavenly.

It's been a few months since our last visit, and I believe the last couple of times or so we have been seated outside. One thing that we immediately noticed was the dramatic reduction in background noise inside the restaurant. So, I'm not sure when the installed the acoustic treatments, but it is a dramatic improvement, to the point of actually being able to hold a conversation without yelling. The food continues to be very good, although the crust seemed a little chewy this time, but not enough to spoil another very good pizza. The change in the ambience due to the noise control increases the likelihood of more frequent visits and recommendations to others to go here.

Service and food was very good. I was very disappointed to be seated outside with our guest. It was hot, muggy and wet with the misters. We had 6:45 reservations and did not request outside. When we asked for a table inside the hostess told us we would have to wait until 9:ok or 9:15. In addition another couple came in minutes later and they were moved to inside. Very disappointed !!!

Too loud but otherwise a great experience. Really liked the pasta and mushroom bruschetta. Caprese was nothing extraordinary. Service was punctual but a tad lacking in warmth. Would definitely recommend.

We try to stop in at Pomo at least once while we are in Scottsdale.

They never let us down with wonderful salads and tasty pizzas.

The service is outstanding and luckily there is also an awesome Gelato shop in the same location.

One of our favorite pizza places!

Grilled vegie board is great. Pesto pasta was way too heavy on pesto--could not eat it. Nothing wrong with ingredients, just too strong and a bit bland. Lasagna is awesome.

This was the best gluten-free pizza I've ever had. In fact, I asked both the waiter and cook to verify that the crust was gluten-free because it tasted so much like the real thing! It's been years since I've been to Italy, but the pizza quality reminded me of what I had there. It was such a special treat for my son with numerous allergies to get to have such excellent food. Can't wait to go back.
