My wife and I had dinner at IL Pomodoro last night. It was our first time there and it began with my accidentally knocking over a full glass of wine - and knocked over it was. My waitress (Regan) and the manager (Denise) could not have been nicer. They offered us another table (which we declined), quickly cleaned up and replaced our settings, and despite my asking to be charged for a replacement glass of wine, they would not allow it and provided a replacement complimentary. We enjoyed our meal and it was excellent. We made the reservation through Open Table and their system asks if there is a special occasion which there was; it was my wife's birthday. Despite my wine mishap, they still came out with a complimentary birthday desert. Good food, class act, and we'll be back.
Ok Pomodoro is a good local Italian restaurant that serves great food with good service at a reasonable price.
Everything was wonderful, food was excellent. Our server Lisa was excellent, very attentive and always smiling.
The owner and staff are so friendly and the food is great.
Nice date night with my husband. The food and service were great.
Great food great service just felt cramped and vert loud. Restaurant was clean and nice variety on menu.
Food, service and atmosphere were all great. We will go again.
We are from Boston and grew up in an Italian home. il Pomodoro would be a success in the Italian section of Boston, the North End. The antipasto was fabulous with a generous portion on meats and cheeses. My rigatoni dish with chicken in an arrabbiata sauce was excellent, my wife had the grouper special with was great and also a large portion. Lunch tomorrow.
Great food and service
Excellent Italian restaurant with excellent food quality. Owners Randy and Denise make patrons feel appreciated and atmosphere is very friendly !
We were looking for a place which had pizza, and this place does!!! It is probably the best pizza we've ever had . . . and my husband ordered the ravioli, which he really enjoyed. Our server, Kelli, was great. We definitely will return to this restaurant. We love Open Table in being able to find excellent restaurants wherever you happen to be in the world . . . and we found another one!
We arrived early and staff was very accommodating… excellent service and food…went home with enough left overs for next days dinner!
Great food and service. Only issue is serious lack of lighting and needed flashlight to see menu
This restaurant is family owned and operated. The husband is the chef, and the wife is the front person. The cuisine and service are always excellent.
Excellent- especially the fra Diablo mussels
The food was good..The Grouper was excellent. The chicken marsala was decent..wines were very nice. Prices are very fair..all in all a good choice.
Excellent menu and the food was wonderful! Great specials as well
Food was delicious and service by Zach was excellent. Love their Veal Parmigiana!
The restaurant is more appealing from the exterior than the interior, but still very nice. The service was very good and food was excellent -- even my leftovers were great the next day! They serve wine and beer -- no liquors, though. I will be back!
Loved the atmosphere, service, and food! Presentation of food was excellent and our waitress was wonderful! Should have asked her name but she lives in North Fort Myers. Fantastic chef!
Food and service was fantastic. Always a great meal there.
Appetizers, salads, and our meals were all delicious. Garlic rolls were disappointing. Service was excellent. Prices are reasonable!
Huge portions and friend staff. Close to where we were staying
The pasta are over cooked to much liquid and our son have to wait 10 minutes longer before he get his food.
This was our first and last time . Never ever again !!!!!
Our Waitress Jullianna was outstanding. Very Personable and Very attentive to
all our needs...when hiring is difficult make sure that you keep Julianna around
A great evening of fantastic food and a wonderful atmosphere of dinner club songs and music by Dave Powers! We always love Il Pomodoro and this was no exception!
We were looking for an Italian place at the last minute by the Barbara Mann Center. This place was quite the find. I’d driven by a few times and hadn’t thought much about it, but it came up in my search, the reviews were good, and they had availability. Boy am I glad we went. Service was great, even though they kept apologizing for the delay’s. There were none! The food was outstanding. The homemade ravioli was excellent. The wife’s rigatoni bolognese was outstanding as well. The wine list was modest, but well priced with some great values. We are definitely coming back and bringing friends.
Truly amazing. From the service to the food everything was just exceptional
Slow to get served and ne of 4 food orders was incorrect and delayed.
Very good food and excellent service. Would have liked a broader wine selection, but overall very good.
Pizza was great. Service was extremely slow. New waitress.
Dinner was delicious. Mary was our server, she was personable and quite funny. We enjoyed our food and experience.
As an Italians, I highly recommend!! The food was fantastic!
Fantastic food and service, the best meal we’ve experienced since moving to SWFL. Portions are huge, plenty of leftovers. A great find all because of OT!
Was rather noisy because of a piano player that night.
Awesome experience for our table of 8
Everything was great. Wine n beer only! So no cocktails…
Ordered the Grouper Special, nice portion served good temp. Would go back.,,
Food was excellent, service was exceptional, and desserts were to die for!
Always a pleasure to dine with friends at Il Pomodoro!
Roomy and nicely decorated Italian restaurant with plenty of parking. Food was served hot. Lasagna was large and tasty. Meatballs were tender and well spiced. Perhaps server was new. She missed the obvious steps - asking us if we we wanted water, telling us the specials, asking if everything was ok or if we needed anything else. Did not know how to pronounce the names of the dishes.
