Pomodoros offers an authentic Mediterranean experience in the heart of Western North Carolina. Drawing our inspiration from the countries of Greece and Italy, we tempt the palate with three separate menus (Lunch, Dinner and Sunday Brunch) of diverse and innovative dishes using the freshest and finest ingredients. Pomodoros is a full service restaurant that provides an extensive wine list, a full bar, catering, and friendly service. Our three distinct menus reflect our commitment to providing only the finest fresh ingredients. Our cuisine pairs regional traditions of Greece and Italy with the diverse culinary talents of our chefs. "The basis of each dish is always in the tradition of the region, but the ingredients guide the way to new delights as well as old favorites." Pomodoros uses only the finest oils that have zero Trans-Fats and are not partially hydrogenated.

My stromboli had a tough crust and no cheese. It was basically hollow inside with the meat and 2 forkfulls of cheese.

Despite mentioning several times that it was my daughter's birthday, not a single person wished her a happy birthday, which I thought was odd. We didn't expect a free dessert, but a nice happy birthday from the hostess or server would have been appropriate.
While I felt the server was adequate, my water was never refilled, there was no knife to cut the bread, and in general, he simply was not attentive.
It's not likely we will be back, just because it felt like a quite dated, older restaurant, and there are other Italian/Greek restaurants with a more attentive waitstaff and more up to date menu offerings with local ingredients and vegan/vegetarian/healthy options.

I will give the staffs and the food 5 stars but while we were there I watched the manager walk around and approach everyone just about except for me and my husband and I was feeling some type of way because we were the only un-Caucasians there and that I didn't appreciate . Just a thought they might want to look at that a little closely.

I highly recommend it. The food was fresh, big portions and properly prepared. Very tasty. The Italian food was as good as the Greek.

The food was fine. As travelers to the area, we were looking for a place to eat in East Asheville. Pomodoro's fit the bill. I had the fish special topped over mashed potatoes and it was well prepared. My companion has the chicken marsala and it was a good value. We took advantage of the 1/2 price bottle of wine. Recommended by our server, the baklavah ice cream was delicious.

The food was delicious! The mussels and bruchetta appetizers were among the best I have ever had, and the pizza and calzone we ordered were also very good. Given that Greek is in the name, I was disappointed there wasnt more Greek cuisine on the menu.

This was our third time at this great little neighborhood Greek/Italian restaurant. This was our third great meal. Our server was friendly and attentive. While the location is not in the downtown area, the prices also are reflective of that as well. Will definitely be back for #4!

Pomodoros has undergone an much needed renovation. The restaurant is newly spiffed up with new seat upholstery and carpeting. Well done! Food and service is very good. Sunday brunch has the right “stuff”,something for everyone from sweet to savory to the classic Benedict’s. Glad we returned.

For an Italian/Greek restaurant, the bread was NOT good. I expect a much more authentic bread! The olive oil was a nice touch, but just not a good start! I saw a nearby table receive the saganaki, and again, then pita that arrived with it looked like it came from Ingles. So glad we didn't order it!
Otherwise, the food was OK. I am not sure I would recommend it to anyone simply because a good Mediterranean restaurant has GOOD bread! They need to get a real baker in there!
