Terrible hostess who despite our open table reservation insisted the only table we could have was outside on the patio. Will not be returning.

Pasta dish was just okay...Loved my husband’s lasagna and the bruschetta. However, it was a compete turnoff when I had to ask for cheese and waitress slapped down a shaker of processed parm. Expected freshly grated Italian cheese from such a nice restaurant. Also, bread was not included.

We tried Pomo Cucina on a whim for a birthday celebration. My entire family is vegan and originally came for the vegan pizza offerings. Not only was the waitress extremely helpful in helping us amend menu items, but we were pleasantly surprised to find that all of their homemade pasta was dairy-free and that most pizzas could be made vegan. We tried the arrabiata sauce and Pomo pizza. Both were incredible. In fact, we are going back again this week to try more menu items.

Although both couples were celebrating our anniversarie’s (49th & above) no special acknowledgement was made, even regarding seating, which was on the entrance aisle. We didn’t ask for special treatment, even tho it was noted on Open Table. We’ll still return for another fun evening!

We usually can honestly rate Pomo 5 star on all counts, but this visit proved lacking in the food area in particular. The Kale/Caesar salad have almost no kale and was very small portion (unlike other visits) and the eggplant pizza had a very small portion of vegetables that were listed on the menu on it. That said, the wine bottle special was fabulous. The other meal was excellent as usual. The patio was quite wet from the misters, but once they opened the shades and allowed the humidity to escape it was better. We dined after dark so they could have been raised earlier. Our server told us that the misters must remain on at the current setting when we inquired.

I’ve been to Pomo twice in two weeks. The first time we ordered pizza and wine... it was great gelato was excellent. The service here both times was wonderful the servers are Italian speakers and engage with their customers.


But, I brought two friends for dinner on Thursday, August 30 Th.

They had bruschetta as an appetizer... there were only two pieces. had egg plant which was good. The problem is that they both did not care for the tagliatelle. These are Italian Americans. They’re in their 80s and they know their Italian food.

They both felt that there was something not right with the tagliatele bolognese. They made it known to the waitress Jessica, and also to the staff on the way out. I paid, so I didn’t make any fuss. But, for the price, we could’ve gone to a more established Italian restaurant called Veneto five minutes away. I like Pomo for pizza and gelato.

Pomo is always consistently good. The food is fresh and tasty. We sat at the bar as the seats in the dining room they originally sat us at were too close together with others .
Not disappointed as Genevieve our bartender was excellent.

Uncomfortable- mid Scottsdale so that might explain. Server got upset after I advised him we were ready to order- he was was running from setting up tables (after we were ignored for 10mins) ... after that he seemed bothered with us... although there was hardly anyone in the restaurant...

Even when the lights went out - Monsoon storm - the dining was a delight. Excellent service. We shared pasta and pizza which were both excellent. One of the best pizza flavors and crusts in town.
New gelato looks good but they wouldn’t serve it after power went out. I guess I’ll have to go back. Great sacrifice!

Outstanding food and good wine list. We were traveling through Phoenix and loved this local Italian restaurant. We have three teenage children and they loved the food as well. It’s quiet and our waitress was very friendly and overall gave us great service. The restaurant has a gelato shop attached with a variety of amazing flavors. We loved the location and gelato so much, we came back twice to get dessert.

This is our "go to" place for casual meals, grandkids, groups, guests who don't need fancy food.
The food is excellent and consistently so. We have been going there for over 4 years.
Some excellent dishes are: any pizza, any pasta, the calamari, and be sure to have the gelato for
dessert!

Although we made reservations, we still had more than a 1/2 hour wait once we got to the restaurant. The manager ended up taking a bottle of wine off our bill as a result, which was much appreciated.
The food at Pomo is simply fantastic. We were a part of 5...my wife and I, and our 21 year old son and two of his buddies - who all can eat like horses. We ordered pizza to start, which as always, was amazing! Then each of us had our own pasta dishes which were again, amazing! We all shared salad after the pasta and then finished it all off with some semifreddo!
Great food and great night!

All courses were under seasoned. The pizza sauce was on the sweeter side and while the external crust was crisp the underside was soggy probably because it was sitting on the plate too long. The drinks were good however.

We are regular customers of POMO and love the salads and pizza. Service has always been acceptable except for this last visit. Waitress had to constantly reminded of a request, ie, extra napkin, more ice tea etc. She never asked my wife if she would like another glass of wine and never came to the table unless I waved her down. A very disappointing visit.

Food was very good. Service was below what I would expect for food prices. We ordered our drinks and an appetizer. The appetizer came out before our drinks. In fact we had finished eating the appetizer before our drinks came. We ordered at that time and our pasta dish and pizza came out at separate times but both were out within 10 minutes. We felt rushed and we were in and out within 40 minutes. When you are charging almost $20 a dish I would expect to be able to enjoy the food and not feel rushed. I wanted to get another drink but was never asked and because everything was rushed we had our two drinks ate and left.
