I’m always a little wary of Italian restaurants who westernize too much. Pomodoro is authentic. The Gorgonzola gnocchi is to die for! The guys had pizza and pasta options and absolutely everyone was happy. The service is personal and caring. Highly recommended

Found this Italian restaurant all hype with little delivery. Food was served hot but with limited flavour. Had to ask for accompaniments to season our food. Not great at all.More

Welcoming and friendly whilst not pushy or over familiar. An excellent balance. Every time we've been to the Pomodoro, the food has exceeded expectation. They have a good kitchen staff so we hope they don't lose them! As an example, the Caesar salad is created...More
