    We've driven by many times, but never stopped in for dinner. Luckily, we were able to get a reservation through Open Table. We were promptly greeted and loved the intimate and inviting decor. The garlic knots were amazing, along with a plentiful house salad. I had the meatballs with spaghetti and the sauce was delicious! The meatballs are tasty and huge. My husband loved his salmon entree. The highlight of the meal was the homemade Tiramisu!! Off the charts! Also, the staff was very friendly, professional, and excellent. I definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back soon!

    Chose this restaurant during our family vacation to Florida. They were able to accept an online reservation for 13 through OpenDoor, which doesn’t happen often. Can’t say enough good things about this restaurant! Our table was ready when we got there, service was prompt and attentive. Food was homemade and delicious! Definitely marking this down for return trips. Highly recommend!!!

    iL Pomodoro is a family run business and it is very good. Ingredients are fresh and the chef and waitstaff are very good. If you like a locally owned family Italian restaurant, this is the place.

    Very limited menu still recovering from Hurricane. Was just OK, nothing special. Taylor was great working with what she had to work with. So many items not available, I suggest you have a daily printed menu of what is available versus relying on wait staff to name everything that is not. Will give it another try in a month

    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.
