This is a local restaurant for us. We enjoy our meal every time we go. Took 4 out of town friends and they loved the food as well.

We really enjoy pomodoro. The staff is friendly and the food is excellent. One of our favorites for local Italian food. BYOB keeps cost down and there are always new things to try on the menu. We come back often.

Caesar Salad was very good. However my mom and I had soft shell crab scampi. Arrived with three crabs apiece which was impressive however they did not taste as good as they looked. It was a very bland thick scampi sauce which didn't have much garlic or flavor. My mom who ordinarily loves soft shell crabs, didn't eat all of hers. The taste was just off.

Staying at overrated/overpriced Grand Cascades for a wedding. Booked an early lunch Sunday. 1 side is pizzeria / other side restaurant. Decent decor but half wall separates rest/piz. Waitress was perfectly attentive. We all got "lunch portions" which were delicious and filling. Veal oscar , veal piccata, lasagna, and a chicken orecchiette were all fabulous. Dessert was as well. Very reasonably priced

We went to Pomodoro' s while we were staying in the area at Crystal Springs. The pizza was tasteless (broccoli and mushroom) and they barely added enough broccoli and mushrooms to the overcooked pizza. My kids both ordered the chicken parmesan with pasta and loved it. The ceaser salad was also good. The couple sitting next to us said that the pizza was very good but we would not order it again here. The wait staff all appeared to be new and didn't really know what they were doing. We saw our waiter once and that's when he took our order for us and at the end gave us our check. The young girl who sat us at our table was more attentive and sweet but they seemed to be frazzled.

Despite late reservation, did everything possible to provide a table for 6. Extremely kind service and food was very good.

Terrific local restaurant. Food is well prepared and staff although young is friendly and hard working. We go regularly and have yet to have a bad meal. Go to Italian in Sussex county.

Really enjoyed our dinner at Pomodoro! Food was great...from the hot, fresh bread to the cappuccino's at the end! Service was great. Our server, who turned out told us she was the owner, was friendly and offered great specials! The atmosphere is loud but not in a bad way... it seemed like everyone was having a good time! I just wouldn't say it's the place for a quiet, romantic dinner! But if you're looking for good food, good service and a fun atmosphere, then this is the place for you! We will definitely be back!

disappointing to say the least. Very bland pasta and not worth the drive. Perhaps the portions need to be larger. Very disappointing experience.

The food was very good. The chef was open to changes to the specials to accommodate dietary restrictions. The staff was very attentive and worked together as a team. Enjoyed the evening with friends. Will definitely return for another meal.

Late reservation because we were at an event prior. Had the entire place to ourselves. Food was very good and service was great. Our server went out of her way to accommodate: one of us had been there before and wanted the same dish she had prior. Server asked Chef if it could be made that evening even though it was not on the regular menu and not one of this evening's specials. I can't imagine that being able to be done during a busier 7pm service, but it was a nice perk of being the only diners at 9:15pm. Most sauces were delish. Red sauce on the pasta side dish was the only negative: bland. I do have to rave about the Stuffed Artichoke: it was fabulous. A few days later I went back to pick up take-out pizza. It was good, not outstanding. There is nowhere in Sussex County that has outstanding pizza, so I would say Pomodoro is right on a par with every other pizzeria around here. The "Grandma's" was described to me as "square, thin crust with fresh mozzarella, slightly sweeter sauce." Because most of the cheese had browned and over-crisped in the oven I could not tell if in fact it was fresh mozzarella vs sliced or shredded. It was definitely a thinner crust than your usual Sicilian style pie, but definitely not what I consider a true thin crust. Anyone who has been to Nellie's or Kinchley's knows what I mean. The topping was tasty though.
