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!

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.

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.

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 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!

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.

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.

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.

We haven’t been here for years and really enjoyed our dinners. We had spaghetti with white clam sauce which had a lot of clams and pork Osso bucco that fell off the bone delicious. Each entree came with either soup or salad. We will definitely go back to enjoy more of there specialties.
