We enjoyed our visit--the food was excellent. We were caught off guard in that we received no warning before the kitchen closed, and it seemed we were expected to leave right at 10, as chairs were stacked and folded around us at 10 on the dot. We would have expected someone, our server or the host, to tell us, "The kitchen is closing in a 15 minutes, if you would like to order anything else." Instead, our last few minutes at the restaurant were unpleasant.

My husband thinks Polo pizza is the best in Phoenix. If I had any concern, it was with the front desk (hostess station). They do not seem on top of things and they were not very welcoming.

Pizzas were good. They sat us on a corner 2 table person for 2 people even though tables were open. It was so hard to have a good dinner. My pizza was barely warm. Appetizers were horrific.
We have been here many times when we are in town. The Gelato place next door is outstanding.

Great for gluten-sensitive diets - the gluten-free crust is delicious and chewy.

Waitress rarely came by table, had to flag her down anytime we needed something. Waited 40 minutes for our appetizer after being told it’d be out in 5 minutes about 10 minutes into our wait. Food came out as the appetizer was being delivered. Wanted a second glass of wine but never could get waitress to come over. Planned to order celebratory dessert but instead the check was brought with no mention of dessert. It was like everyone was too scared to talk to us because the service was garbage and rather than apologize and explain what happened it was easier to ignore us.

Loved the vibe of this place. Food (pasta and pizza) was really good! We went back the next day for late lunch - salads and pizza. Dined outside - really nice lunch, good, friendly service.

We were seated on the patio, that was great! Adequate heat, space and ambiance. Ordered drinks and appetizers. Drinks arrived, then, after a while the appetizers... not so appetizing. Ordered dinner, after a exceptionally long wait it arrived. Three pastas were cool, dry and unappetizing. The gluten free pizza was reported to be inedible... We won't be back!

Popular italian restaurant with a limited menu based on pasta and pizza, some appetizers and excellent gelato. Both the pizza and pasta were very good. The service was a bit overwhelmed but delivered. A so so wine list with significant mark up

We made reservations for Dec31st.
2 out of the 4 entrees were disappointing and one was especially underwhelming
Server could not have care less and was rushing us out.
I suspect we won’t return.

The food was great! It took a long time to get our food and we had to flag down our server for drinks, refills on water and we got our salad with our pizza not before. Our server was very nice but scarce!

if the food was outstanding...we would be willing to accept the noise level and lack of ambiance...but it is not. possibly the weakest italian food in scottsdale. the pasta & fagioli soup was flavorless. the caesars salad was about what i'd expect at denny's. the pizza was so soggy that when you picked it up it hung like a wet rag. i'll give an A to their promotion department for keeping the place so busy in spite of the lousy food!

As Pomo is my sons favorite restaurant, we booked it for his graduation celebration. No disappointment, until we decided to grab a gelato next door at Luna. Two ladies were behind the counter and saw us. With that they turned towards their cash register while we were there. They clearly saw us, even looked up at us but said nothing. No greeting , nor explanation as to why they were ignoring us. So we stood at the table and let my son open his grad present while we waited for the ladies to turn around.
They didn’t , so I approached them and asked about ordering and the one just stated that they were now closed. Still no greeting or sorry you’re too late. We were late, but obviously before 10pm as it was only 10:05 when we got in our cars. We had stood around talking before all splitting up for the evening, so it had to have been before 10pm closing time.
Regardless, even if by chance they were to close at 9:30 and we all came in, they should have at the very least greeted us and mentioned they were closing now.
Pomo was wonderful and we will be back as usual. We have been devotees since at the Borgata.
Our gelato get together will remain at that’s Amore.
Have some manners ladies. I totally understand that you have to close and I know it was late. We weren’t aware of the time as we were there to enjoy ourselves. Also, our waiter sent us over and for sure he was aware of the time. (So obviously before closing is all I’m saying ) Just don’t ignore people is all I’m trying to get across.
Thanks.

It is a Family Tradition during the Holiday Season to go to Winter Wonder at Scottsdale Bible Church and then have a wonderful meal and conversation at Pomo Cucina & Pizzeria! Would recommend the food and ambience to any one.

We dine at POMO regularly. This last dinner was a disappointment. While our order was taken in 10 min, it took almost 30 min to get our drinks. Had to flag down our sever after 25 min to get her attention. Our appetizer took 20 min and it was just bread so an easy order. Pizza arrived after 40 min and it was very bland. Skimpy on all toppings so at the price point, disappointing/over charged. Not what we have been accustomed to at POMO. Had to ask for plates (we indicated we were sharing our meals) and, after dropping a knife, had to ask for a replacement twice. Poor service from a waitress we have previously been serviced by before. She clearly was overwhelmed or distracted.

I brought my parents and husband here as a first time experience and they all loved it! My parents and I had lived in Italy for several years and we were looking forward to some authentic dishes - and our meals did not disappoint! The made-in-house pasta is amazing, the sauce just right, and the Napoletana pizza crust spot on!

We prefer Pomo downtown - that location would give 5 stars hands down due to the more intimate feel and better prep of food, even though it is a smaller menu.
Went to Scottsdale location mid afternoon on a not busy Sunday afternoon. Pizza was a little soggy in the middle, pasta a little past al dente so gave it almost a pasty consistency instead of a firmer bite while eating. Flavor otherwise was good.

Pomo is the best. Best pizza and salad from MN to AZ. We love the spicy diablo pizza. We love the ambiance. Our first and last stop during our numerous trips to our AZ home. Actually I need to go now....it’s that good!

The food is generally ok;nothing special, not bad, but nothing that stands out! The ingredients on the pizza are routinely skimpy(like they've counted the number of pieces of sausage on the pizza); the best redeeming value is going next door to Luna for gelato!
