Were looking for something other than barbecue. Italian fit the bill. Good food but unfortunately we sat outside (on a beautiful evening), music was ‘odd’ and depressing g. Wish we had sat inside, where the atmosphere was completely different and very lively

We were visiting from Louisiana and found this gem. We had the olive appetizer, pepperoni pizza and an Italian hamburger. It was all delicious. The atmosphere here is awesome. The service was great. Wish we lived in the area because it would become a favorite. We highly recommend this restaurant. Free parking too!!

One of our favorite neighborhood spots. Food and drinks are consistently good. Service this visit was a bit hit and miss as we waited for a while before someone finally visited our table. After that, service picked up and all was well.

Unnecessary wait, hostess forgot about us, cold pasta, mediocre experience at best.

The food, ambiance, and value were great; however, the overall rating of "fair" is due to the server awarding herself a 30% plus tip by keeping ALL the change from my meal (I paid in cash) despite the fact that I asked for change AND sat at the table for over 15 minutes attempting to get my change back. I dined with two other guest who paid separately and each paid with credit cards. Our server collected all three checks and payments, but returned with only the two credit card receipts. She dropped them and ran and then avoided the table for literally 15 minutes as I attempted to flag her down for change. I finally had to leave to get to an appointment, but this incident left a sour taste in my mouth.

Service was poor. We were essentially ignored/unattended to for 30 minutes (when we were both ready to order drinks and food). Pretty disappointing visit overall.

I believe Hunter was our waitress. Impressive young lady. Well presented, articulate and engaging. Need more like her. We come regularly as we enjoy the food and atmosphere.

Not so enjoyable last evening. Sat on the patio and other couples had young children. Not well behaved. If I wanted to eat at Chuck E Cheese I would have done that.

Know that’s hard for you to control. Disappointing.

Thanks.

Been here for happy hour as well as brunch- everything I’ve had was excellent and the staff are very friendly and attentive. Love their fries, had the Italian donuts and breakfast pizza. Lovely patio with sail shades and lights, beautiful spot to be when the weather is nice. All reasonably priced and large portions. Will be back here for sure! Also there is a parking lot which is huge...

Extremely loud. We asked to be moved away from a large, energetic group multiple times, but it was hard to hear each other, even when we finally switched tables. It seemed as though the building was designed to amplify noise, rather than suppress it.

Our waitress was horrible. She took about 15 minutes to greet us. She was oblivious to her little section (three tables of six people total...), and spent a lot of time in the back of the house. Every other table but our section received bread and dipping oil. Our table's appetizers and water (yes, just water!) took over 25 minutes to arrive, and she never checked on us/updated us in the mean time... We're fine with waiting, just let us know that the kitchen is back-logged, rather than leave us in the dark. Another couple got up to leave due to the poor service, but the manager convinced them to stay.

While the food was good, it was not worth the terrible service. We certainly will not be coming back.

Gluten free cauliflower pizza crust is absolutely the best pizza crust I’ve ever eaten! Great food & service at very reasonable prices. I will always make an effort to return to dine more often.

It was the worst service I’ve had in awhile. It took 20 minutes for our server to show up. It took over 30 minutes to get our starter, which was olives. It took over an hour to get our dinner. As soon as we finally got our meals, our server asked us if we wanted dessert. Overall, our server showed up twice over a 2 hour period.

Excellent food on a very relaxing and comfortable outdoor deck (if it isn’t raining) in a cool neighborhood. Their menu has great choices. I really enjoy eating there for traditional and more unique Italian items. Only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star for food was the pizza crust was a little burned the last time I ate there.

We had a great time! Excellent food and service. We had a 3-year old with us and the waitstaff was extremely helpful in every way. We live in the area and plan to dine at Pomodoro again soon.

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.
