Pomodoro East Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Have eaten there several times and enjoyed it tremendously, but I was very disappointed this visit. Waited 40 minutes for drinks. The cheese plate tasted great, but was very messy. I'm not a fan of sauces or glazes on the rim of the plate, but at least turn it the other way so that your girl doesn't get covered in sauce. Pizza took an hour after the appetizers were cleared. I'm glad this wasn't our first visit because I probably wouldn't return. I hope it's back up to standards next time.
We made the reservation for a friends birthday and made sure to let them know. However nothing was done about the special occasion we came for. We waited at the door to be seat for about 10min with several workers walking by without even being greeted. There was a pretty great selection of food choices, however once we ordered and received our appetitzer, the food runner nor our waitress was able to tell us what was on our meat and cheese plate. One of the entrees was spaghetti with meatballs. The meatballs were so over cooked and inedible. When we told the waitress of this she just said sorry and we were charged for them any ways. Empty glass were on our table without being offered to be refilled, we had to wave someone down. Our waitress also spilled the beer we ordered on the floor and never apologized. When we asked for recommendations for food and drink the waitress had no idea just stated well pretty much everything is good. Over all a not good experience and would not recommend to someone which was very disappointing considering the friend who's birthday it was had been waiting to go there for a long time.
Enjoyed casual dining at Pomodoro East. The tomato salad was fabulous with various types of perfectly ripened tomatoes. The entrees offer something for everyone, although the emphasis is on Italian food with pizzas made in house and various pastas. The wine selections include a special of the day, which we selected from and it was great. Service was first rate. A good value and always fun. Strongly recommended b
We had a wonderful meal here with friends from New Orleans. We sat on the beautiful outdoor patio which is well-fenced and even cozy. Food was excellent as was the service. We just moved into East Nashville and this place is walking distance for us so it will become our "go to" for Italian.
Wonderful service in this East Nashville modern Italian, from our first greeting by the host/hostess throughout the entire meal - we had a table of 6 and tried lots of different apps and meals, and all were delicious - good sized portions, tasty renditions of classics like chicken parmigiana, and several fish and vegetarian selections as well. An added bonus is wine list with several high quality wine options from Italy, Spain, US etc in the $30 range - they have the higher priced ones as well, but impressed with the variety and quality of their "everyday" wines.
I'm not sure what is going on at this place. We've typically had great experiences. One pizza was very burned, the other which was gluten free was undercooked and the base had a consistency similar to polenta, inedible. My wife didn't like her first glass of wine (personal taste, nothing wrong with it), tried to order another one and the server told her that she couldn't legally bring her another until the first was finished which may or may or may not be nonsense. Restaurant definitely needs to make some adjustments.
