    We use to visit this restaurant back in 2010 and many years after. Decided to try again after many years and it is just not the same. The food was very tasty but the atmosphere and service is somewhat lacking. Had a 5pm reservation and let’s say after 2 glasses of wine, an appetizer and entrée, we were done and payed the bill at 5:35pm. Please leave a little time between courses. Also, the servers were rolling out the paper table settings in the middle of the room while people were trying to have a quiet meal. This should be done before they even open.

    My wife and I went for dinner last week at this nice neighborhood Italian restaurant. The restaurant is pleasant but not flashy and there was a nice mix of clientele including families there. Our server was excellent and dinner was unhurried so we could savor it. When the wine I ordered was not in stock our server made an excellent suggestion which we enjoyed. Our italian egg rolls and sauce were superb as were our grouper and pasta carbonara entrees. Overall this was a very nice dinner and we will be going back.

    This place was perfect for date night! Some of the best wine ever, nice and quiet. Frank Sinatra playing in the background. Love! The food was divine! Penne a la Vodka was to die for, as was the Mussels appetizer (which is a huge portion!), and the chocolate Gelato! I was transported to Italy! So fresh and homemade! Highly recommend!

    If you are looking for a local chef owned Italian restaurant, then il Pomodoro is the place to go to. Family owned, using nothing but the freshest ingredients, the place is great. The hostess is his wife, and she makes sure you are well taken care of.

    Il Pomodoro is our favorite Italian restaurant in the Cape Coral/Ft. Myers area. The food is outstanding and their service is consistently superior! Their portions allow for another meal the next day! That says a lot because we consume plenty during our initial seating! Lots of great dishes to try!

    When my 6 pm group (6) arrived, we were taken to a table for 5 as the hostess had us arriving at 5 instead of 6. We were moved to a larger table that had 7 place settings. It was no big deal, as there was plenty of tables available. Having dined there many times previously, we always enjoy the food and the little inconvenience about tables won’t keep us from returning.

    We found ourselves on this side of town without reservations in a Saturday night and so thankful to have popped into this place. The hostess was extraordinarily welcoming and worked seamlessly with the waitstaff to insure every table received stellar service. The waitress Olivia was smart and made great recommendations. Our table of four shared two mussels apps, and I think we could have been satisfied with just those and a basket of rolls. The entrees were all tasty and priced right. Looking forward to next visit!

    Average restaurant. Small room so lots of noise from all the conversations. Disappointed they only had wine (despite that they could carry beer with the type of liquor licenses given out). Food was good though! Two servers only for the whole restaurant and had to assist each other. It wasn’t bad, but just an average place.

    I’ve been wanting to try this place out for quite sometime, so we took a chance. Maybe Saturday during “season” wasn’t the best time for a first visit. Place was busy, short staffed. Waiter was ok not very attentive. Way too many tables he had to work though. Food was ok, nothing special. Prices seems fair considering the portions were large. Nice wine list with plenty selection, no bar/cocktails.

    Frozen rolls, bad entrees, no espresso, this is far from a good Italian restaurant. I don’t understand how this can be rated as a good restaurant? I’m from the NY area and this restaurant would have closed down a long time ago.

    We sat for 25 minutes with our menus and never got acknowledged, let alone served. Even with a reservation. We’ve dined here before and not had this experience. It will be hard to try them again…they seemed to be well staffed, so hopefully just an off night.

    First visit here in a couple of years. Food was really good and the prices are fair. Service was a bit uneven, I think our server was new and very inexperienced. Also, the place was kind of dark. Diners near us complained and they tried turning on more lights, then it was way too bright. Seems like they need a dimmer switch. We did enjoy our meal though.

    Very friendly service from the moment we entered the restuarant until the moment we paid our bill. Food was good and the portions were large. Decent, very reasonable priced wine list. We did split a Lemoncello cake which was excellent. Great place for a comfortable meal. Not fine dining but neither were the prices. I recommend il Pomodor.
