An enjoyable evening from start to finish! This restaurant group manages to do everything right in our opinion. Truly delicious food, service so good you almost don’t notice, comfortable and welcoming (if you’re tired of pretentious raise your hand), creative cocktails, and nice variety for happy hour. You’ll enjoy it!

Special thanks to Kelsey- I was having a very bad night (personally) and she ensured that I was well taken care of, and I felt her compassion and empathy. My husband was treated like a king by his favorite bartender, and no one “judged” based on my emotional state - it’s like having drinks and dinner at the home of your coolest friends .... this is why I love Pomodoro as much as I do - don’t ever change, please!

Was probably the worst dining experience we have had in Nashville. There was nothing to be positive about. The calamari was tasteless and the carpaccio was bland. The pepperoni 4 cheese pizza was terribly burned on all edges and the pepperoni overpowered the cheeses (which I could not taste). The chicken parmesan was bland and the pomadoro sauce tasted like Chef Boyardee. Won't return.

Enjoyed Pomodora East twice while in Nashville. Great pizzas! Great pasta! Fun cocktails! Having one in our party who has celiac disease and needs to have a Gluten Free option, this place fit the bill! Loved the Violet cocktail- doesn't photograph well, but tastes heavenly.

We were having dinner with a friend who has a son with a very severe peanut and tree nut allergy. The staff, especially our waitress, were very attentive and reassuring to my friend and her son. Our waitress went above and beyond to be sure everything was safe for the little guy. The food was great, as well.

The best part of the entire experience was our server Zoe. She was extremely personable and attentive. She suggested our first course, the shrimp and crab, to share and between 4 people it was delicious and a great start to our entrees. She was very helpful in communicating with what we wanted beverage wise. She inquired what our friend Amanda liked in a beverage and she worked with the bar to make is better the second round.

Kelsey and Charlee are awesome! They always make sure me and my girls are taken care of! Everyone there treats us like we are stars - because they recognize us and interact with us and are excited we came back to see them - THAT is the secret to a successful place and it’s because of them .....

Thank you so much for making our time there relaxing and enjoyable.... it means so much!

Honestly I don’t understand all of the 5 star reviews. Great little trendy spot, happening atmosphere but the wife and I felt the service was a bit off although the wait staff were nice. Delayed and missing would be more fitting. Food wise, I looked forward to the carpaccio, (dried capers?) and a good cheese plate, which was good despite the presentation. (Covered over with toast). Both of us had pasta dishes, neither were impressive.
Bottom line for me; trendy East Nashville eateries caught up in the hype of the area.

Bad service, bad food.

We were ignored by the server for so long, we had already selected our drinks, appetizer and entrees by the time he got there, so we ordered them all at once.

The beer came out, and after emptying my glass, it sat on the end of the table empty for almost 10 minutes. Then the entrees came out...yes, before the appetizer, which it turns out, the waiter forgot to order for us.

The pizza was undercooked, very doughy and greasy. The chicken parmesan had almost no sauce which was ok since the sauce was overpowered with basil. Somebody in that kitchen loves basil. We ate the food (some of it) because no one came back to check on us after the food was delivered and we were hungry.

The next time we saw the server, he was presenting the check with no attempt to upsell dessert...we stopped for dessert on the way home.

Our first visit and our last.

This restaurant is simply great. My wife and I attended before a show at TPAC. She stated that this was "the best meal I have ordered at a restaurant, maybe ever." Quite a compliment, as we've eaten at hundreds of restaurants in our long lives.... But, perhaps even better was the service. The weather was icy on that evening, and our server and bartender were willing to help talk my family through alternative routes to Pomodoro.

The appetizer was the only item fit to eat. We ordered wine from the wine list and they were out of that wine. Twi of us ordered tuna rare and specifically told the waiter. It arrived medium. My wife ordered salmon and it was so over cooked it was like jerky. We ordered a sorbet with berries for desert. We were then told they were out of sorbet. They substituted a bisket cake the consistency of a hockey puck covered with a few frozen strawberries. STAY AWAY

I love having Pomodoro East in my neighborhood. The service is always marvelous, the food is always outstanding and I love the ambiance. My biggest issue is that I have a hard time choosing between my tried-and-true favorites -- the Fig & Pig pizza and the bolognese pasta -- and trying new seasonal items. Also, they have a fantastic happy hour, which is a great time to try lots of small plates (and drinks) with friends.
