Pomodoro East was delicious as always, but I did have a problem with Open Table. I made a reservation but the reservation did not come through to the restaurant, even with my confirmation.

Didn’t hit the mark for me. Bloody Mary bar was small & only had one type of mix. The fries were awesome but my bolognese hash wasn’t the best. Service was good.

We have visited just a few times but this is becoming one of our favorite spots. Nice balance between indoor and outdoor dining with friendly staff. Meals have been great and staff has been positive and friendly. This time we visited with another couple whom loved the place as well. We will be back. Great experience.

Our waiter was haveing a bad night, not sure if he was the only waiter or if he just is overworked or new. Food was fine, had 2 pasta dinners, mussels and cauliflower buffalo , fruit with Italian ham. Dry not moist. We ordered simple drinks, 2 came back wrong after we told waiter just want Tito’s on rocks with 3 olives. First time it came out Tito’s with seltzer water and orange slice. Not what we ordered then second time came back the same but no olives or orange slice the third time got it right. Management needs to oversee the coustomers and staff better.

Server was attentive at first when restaurant wasn’t so busy- then we had to flag another server to refill water. Crab cakes were slightly overdone. Overall, a nice dinner experience but nothing extraordinary.

Had a great time with my wife. Nice location. Quiet all around. Outside patio was perfect. Food was good. What made the experience was our waitress Dee. Very positive. Happy. Full of energy and did not rush us. More need to learn from her. We will visit again. Thank you,

This was our fifth trip and we were very excited to take my mother inlaw. Boy what happened to the kitchen? HUGE dissapointment was the removal of brussel spouts. We can live with that as things are seasonal (Brussells are in season though aren't they)? Anyhow we ordered two chicken parmasean (2 of the party's favorite). Both were over cooked and dry basically aweful. We ordered extra sauce to hopefully revive the dish and two bowls of spagettio sauce minus the o's were brought out. I mean nasty. I ordered the pork and got two overcooked tough pork pucks which sat attop a wonderful bed of orzo. The protein ruined the dish. We ordered crab cakes to start, slighty overcooked but still tasty. Sorry do be negative again but what was the sauce...trying to get too fancy here. I never will understand this....put a great Remoulade side by side with what you are serving and taste for yourself. My guess is you have a intimidating Chef and everyone is scared to tell him the food is taking a nose dive. Good luck we love traveling to East Nashville but if this keeps up you will lose customers and staff. This was the second time Hunter has served us and he is fabulous. Hope things turn around soon.

Our waiter did an outstanding job. Very friendly but not intrusive. Food was good and we are a critical bunch of retired chefs and restaurant owners. A great, relaxed neighborhood spot. Can't go wrong.

Overall the food was good but the service was not great. The hostess checked us in and said she was setting up a table but then forgot about us. The server was nice but would forget that we asked for drinks and when we asked for bread he said they were out, then another server offered to bring us garlic bread we said sure and never saw it, just not their best night. The food was good though.

Our service seemed to be a bit slow but the service was good. We identified an allergy to garlic ahead of time but the message didn't get to the server since we were brought bread with garlic olive oil dipping sauce.

The food was good, we enjoyed the eclectic 80s music, and we'd probably go back to try the pizza and flatbreads if we return to the area. Good neighborhood place.

This was our first visit to Pomodoro East. The food was excellent. We started with the cheese plate + Charcuterie. There were parts to this that were exceptional and parts that I personally didn't care for - but I'd order it again. For my entree, I ordered 1/2 Fig & Pig pizza and 1/2 Italian Sausage Pizza. The crust was good and crispy and it's hard to decide which part of the pizza I liked the best.....but it was probably the Italian Sausage. It seems like it had a bit more flavor. I ended up with over 1/2 of my pizza to take home because the cheese plate was very filling. For his entree, my husband ordered the short ribs. Unfortunately, at 7:00 they were already out. He ended up getting one of the specials - the baked cod. He said the fish was a bit salty but still good. For dessert, we shared spiked coffee and Tiramisu.....oh my goodness!!! I'd go back every day for just these two items. It was the best Tiramisu that I'd ever had and the spiked coffee drink we selected was a dessert by itself. Our server, Broderick, was great. The only negatives we have are: Being out of one of their main entrees at 7:00 - It was very, very noisy - We were disappointed in the beer selections. We wished there had been more local beer options....plus they were out of two of the beers we ordered. We highly recommend Pomodoro East and the best recommendation is saying "We loved it and we'll be back."

Our family enjoyed our meal. The server was knowledgeable and courteous. Both he and Phil, the manager made us feel welcomed and appreciated. We enjoyed 5 dishes. All were generous, however the bolognese cause was unsophisticated and perhaps more suitable for a child's palate.
