We were celebrating my wife’s birthday and chose Pomodoro because it is one of our favorite go-to restaurants in Nashville. The food as always was delicious, the service was excellent and the ambiance made for another great evening.
The service was great. The food was delicious. We all had a great time!
Best Sunday brunch in Nashville!
Ordered and the wine was not served until well after the first courses were delivered.... bread was not offered until requested. Service got better as we ramped up our interaction with the server. Food was good
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.
Really great food and wine. Our server was awesome as well! I have been going for a few years now but they have taken their game to the next level!!
Awesome service and wonderful food. Highly recommend!
Off the beaten path, and exactly what I was looking for! All fresh house made fare! Definately worth the drive! Excellent service and presentation!
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!
The fried calamari is some of the best I have had and the chicken parmigiana is tender and flavorful
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.
Zoe was our server. She was wonderful.
Food was amazing, as always! Service was excellent as well.
Great find for a quiet night out. We tried the meatball sliders, fig and pig, and the chicken parmesan! It is all good - spiced just right and very well done.
Everything was incredible! Will definitely be back.
Great food. Calamari was out of this world.
Artichoke pasta was superior.
Always lovely and delicious- our server Anika was really sweet!
Our waiter was fun and friendly. Well-executed Italian dishes. It was a really pleasant dining experience. Great if you want a romantic Italian dinner.
Great service, good food and love there Happy Hour!
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.
Service was great, but a very off night in the kitchen. Both of our pizzas were burnt beyond recognition. I usually experience better from here. Very disappointing evening.
Great server and food - really enjoyed the evening
Great food and service and ambiance
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
Great brunch! The bolognese skillet is always my go to. So good!!
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.
Ordered chicken parm and it came out burnt on the bottom. Tasted horrible! Horseradish green beans were yummy though!
Took a friend who was visiting from New York. Glad to show off our neighborhood gem.
Our server Racel was less than attentive. Never offered refills on water or anything. The restaurant was no where nearly full . My bread was burned on my entree of Italian eggs. All I could really enjoy, was the eggs. Overpriced for a poor experience
Food was pricey and mediocre. Not many options to choose from.
Lovely evening! Food was delicious and we enjoyed the outdoor patio!
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.
Food and service great. Outside patio is spacious and relaxing. Reasonable prices but the wine measure is ridiculously small. Either buy the bottle or drink something else. Pity in an otherwise good experience.
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 were from out of town staying at a B&B in the neighbourhood. We stumbled upon this place looking on Trip Advisor. It was absolutely fantastic especially for Happy Hour. Great cocktails, tasty food dishes, highly recommended!!
First time and will definitely be back. We are actually in the Boro but friends took us here before a concert and it was amazing. Be sure to hit happy hour! Speciality drinks at a great bargain and mussels to boot!
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.
