Best Italian restaurant in southwest Florida. They need to add more garlic to their rolls!
All 3 of us had great food! Service was spot on & not too much. Manager checked with us several times . First time here for us but definitely not our last!
Another great meal at Il Pomodoro. And we were serenaded by Dave Powers as we dined! Dave played at our wedding in Ohio, so it’s always great to hear him again in Florida. We have had so many wonderful selections at Il Pomodoro that we’re having trouble remembering everything that we’ve tried! We have never been disappointed with the food or their service, so we’ll be back again very soon!
Large menu. 2 out of 4 people not thrilled with food. Alfredo sauce was very watery.
Sucks both open table and I’ll Pomodoro. Food disgusting open table no one should use
The food was awesome and the service was, once again, incredible! We always try a new dish because there are so many enticing items on the menu. We have yet to be disappointed in any of our choices! Great Italian food with several seafood options as well. Their freshly baked bread that arrives hot to the table is another added bonus! We always have enough leftovers for another meal the next day. We love Il Pomodoro!
Nice place. Food very average. Would not go back. Service slow.
Another great meal and our service was excellent. We had Kendall as our server and she was outstanding. This was the second time we had her as our server. We were impressed with the food and service were taking other people their this weekend. Best Italian food in area and prices are reasonable compared to other places.
Chairs need to be varnish table clothes were ripped. my dinner came out burnt,cooks were arguing ,even after closing after lunch and opening for dinner the floors had food on them. the only good thing I have to say was the server was great
Excellent food as usual! This is one of our favorite spots in Ft. Myers. We brought some friends and they are ready to return again.
Stephanie was our server. She is AWESOME!
This is our go to Italian restaurant in Ft Myers, FL. We find that the service is always spot on and the food of choice is cooked your way. Drinks are not overly expensive and this year we two had Valentine's dinner for only $60-$70 dollars including tip.
Food was great as always. Our server was exceptional.
Deceptive advertising, as well as some questionable tactics regarding their specials. Food is no better than average and over priced, manager/owner refused to come out of kitchen to address our concerns after we asked three times. Trust us, diners in the Fort Myers area have much better dining options. Want great Italian food and service at reasonable prices, dine at “Two Meatballs In The Kitchen“, you won’t regret it.
This is our go to Italian restaurant in the area. It is very good. The portions are great and food is very good.
service and food were excellent
Worst service ever! Reservations at 5:45. Food served cold at 7:20.
Very good as usual.
The menu contained some very nice items. Quality was excellent, prices were great.
This is our go-to Italian restaurant in the Ft Myers/Cape Coral area. The menu is broad and we keep trying new dishes on every visit. We have loved everything that we’ve had! It’s one of our must go spots on every trip down south!
Had a wonderful meal at El Pomodoro. Food was good and reasonably priced. What made it especially nice was the waitress. She proved great service and was very delightful.
Excellent food at reasonable prices!!!
We really enjoy this restaurant.
We enjoyed our dinners and had a very nice experience. Everyone is very professional and took good care of us.
Das il promodoro hätte Spitze sein können, wenn es nicht viel zu kalt im Restaurant gewesen es wäre.
Das Essen war sehr viel und lecker . Achtung Dir 14‘ Pizza ist für eine Person sehr sehr viel.
We were there on New Years Eve 7pm. il Pomodoro is a small quaint restaurant the noise level this evening being it was busy was somewhat high. Meals came with 1 bread roll each and a Very small salad. I had the Chicken Marsala with fettuccine the chicken and sauce was very good chicken very tender that sat on a spoonful of plain fettuccine. Hubby had the Chicken Parmesan with spaghetti and set it was very good, other member of our party had the Balsamic Chicken he also said it was tasty. We brought home a order of the home made Tiramisu unfortunately that was a huge disappointment opened box and it was runny slab of marsacapone that was very gritty tasting with small base layer of ladyfingers (Not sure if we got a bad batch or that's the way it's made here?) Average price of the meals where 18-20.00pp without drinks. Wine is $8+ for a nice pour. We will probably try again when it's not a major Holiday and see if the side portions are larger for the price.
Great food but service could be better. Overall an enjoyable experience.
Christmas Eve....delicious meal!
Judy & George
I’ve been to this restaurant several times for business. Our team went for a holiday luncheon and everything was perfect! Food was perfect, great server! And a good value. We will definitely be back to Arden courts team loved it
Excellent linguini with mussels, shrimp and calamari. Tiramisu was the absolute best ever!
This is small, quaint restaurant tucked away. It is warm and always welcoming. Delicious food! Specials are always available as well. Stephanie was our server and she is awesome. She is intuitive to your needs and has a just a lovely,wonderful presence to her. Randy, manager is terrific. He is personable and welcoming. All of the staff are pleasant. This is one of our favorite spots to eat!!
Chicken piccata is way to lemony. The tables are so close together you join the next table overs conversation. Read carefully to buy one get one 1/2 coupons. They actually made me purchase a drink I did not want in order to use coupon. Not going back. New waitress on our table on a busy Saturday night. She was not bad.
Among our favorite places to go. So many wonderful items on the menu, but we usually pick the special. Never been disappointed.
Delicious meal with very comfortable service.
After two recent visits, Il Pomodoro has become our favorite Italian restaurant in the Cape Coral area. Obviously, we haven't tried them all, but given our extreme satisfaction with Il Pomodoro, we probably won't look any further for Italian fare. We have loved everything, including seafood, that we have ordered and there are still many items that we can't wait to try! We will be back when we as soon as we return to the area! The only thing that's missing is a full bar, but the food and service more than make up for it.
Food and service was exceptional. Prices were very affordable. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Service was great but the kitchen was really slow. We ended up taking our food home but Our server Angie was awesome.
This is a wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant. The staff is fantastic, it is like eating with family. Our very favorite restaurant.
Excellent wait staff , food is wonderful & very accommodating ! Very enjoyable dinner & atmosphere !
My chicken farm tasted like it was made yesterday, it was rubbery
We had a very nice experience with good food and wonderful service. We will definitely be back. The only downside was that they didn’t have a full bar, only beer and wine. Other than that, we loved it!
