We enjoyed our dinner very much. The food was great, as was the service. Unfortunately the noise level was nearly unbearable. A party of at least 20 young people were enjoying themselves to the best of their ability. Under normal circumstances it’s much quieter. They were short staffed, which unfortunately is a sign of the times. But the staff worked hard, remained calm and provided excellent service.

We have been to Il Pomodoro over twenty times and it never fails to please. A diverse menu of quality Italian dishes and a variety of expertly prepared sauces. Ambience very pleasant. Service very professional. The manager/owner/head chef is very welcoming and actively and seriously monitors the room for quality and guest satisfaction. I hope to return at least twenty more times.

Overall food was ok at best. Ordered the mussels in marina had no flavor was definitely missing something. The mama’s meatballs were heavy and dense and really not very good. Pasta was good my wife’s chicken dish she said was ok at best.

We have visited this Reataurant 3 times
Hoping that it will improve but.....
Decent service, good prices.
The pasta has always been overcooked,even after telling the server to please make sure the pasta would be al dente,way to much blend tomato sauce, huge portions with no taste.the owner and manager come to the table very nice, hope they can fix it.

First time there, went there because my friend recently started working there as a waitress. The food was absolutely amazing starting with the bread and then the Caesar dressing on the salad and then the chicken francese was delicious. My fiancé was very happy with his soup and his salmon entree as well. Both wines we tried were so good too. The restaurant is nice and small but perfect size and so clean and quiet and romantic and the staff is amazing!
