Food very salty and not the usual standard. But normally very good!
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.
the menu was robust and our server was great. we enjoyed our meal and everything was fresh and presented well.
The manager also came over to chat with us which was greatly appreciated.
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.
Birthday. They gave a free slice of cake with a candle and sang
This Italian restaurant is as good as anywhere in the North End. Chef (owner) does a great job.
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.
Once again our meal and total experience at Il Pomodoro was amazing! The food was incredible and our service was awesome! The entire staff was wearing masks and they did a great job of spreading out the other dining parties! We love this place!!
Live the place and the food. Waitstaff is friendly and helpful. Never feel rushed. Great place to eat.

Il Pomodoro is a fabulous Italian Restaurant. Food is well prepared and wine list is very good.

Had a delicious dinner with great service. Would highly recommend this restaurant.
Absolutely superb. The two friends I took there for dinner were truely amazed at how good it was!
This place was awesome! Some of the best Italian food we have had in the area!
This Italian restaurant reminds us of the North End (Boston). Food is fabulous and service is very good.
Enjoyed the food and music!
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!
Delicious food, attentive waiter and lovely setting
We tried this for the first time and we will be back. good food with charming service.
Service and food was excellent!!
Catching up with family
We are new to the area and have eaten here on two occasions.
In both cases the food was delicious and the service excellent!
Met the owner who was awesome as well.
It's a keeper and we will be there again soon.
Great service and outstanding food!
There were 7 of us and everyone enjoyed their dinner. I had fettuccine with grouper. It was the best grouper I had in Florida! We had 3 children with us and it was a great casual restaurant! I recommend the dinner!
Not the best Italian food I’ve had. Needed some seasonings
Very good Italian restaurant at a very reasonable price. Dinner and service were very good.
The service was very good. The food was good. Where we were sitting it was quite loud, due to a loud party of four.
First time at this restaurant and the place was amazing. Food and service was great and they even had a live piano singer.
Amazing food! Everything was prepared of great quality products and had great taste. Loved all the pastas, chicken primavera and chicken piccata! Partitions are good to split.
