First of all: this review is about the Il Pommodoro on Plaza Roosevelt, not the original Il Pommodoro in the student quarter nearby. Both are in San Pedro. I have been coming to Il Pommodoro for more than 2 decades, and especially appreciate the attention paid by the owners (Italians) all these years to the quality of the experience in their restaurant: waiters, cooks, ingredients, the lady at the register, seating arrangements. It is always good if not excellent. Never did I have a complaint, although I have frequently travelled to Italy and enjoyed that cuisine in situ. Even the house wine is quite acceptable.

I went a few days ago for lunch with my family. Unfortunately, the lunch did not meet our expectations. The food was very good but incredibly small. Very disappointed to have waited that long for a small dish of maybe 50-60g of pasta. They should include a warning that dishes are very small so clients can plan ahead. Maybe add a label. Also, the prices should be shown final (taxes+service).

I have visited both with the entire family as well as only with my wife. It is a fantastic place, great service and one of the best Italian food places in CR.

Delicious food and great service. Most of the waiters have been around for ages and are always very kind. The pizzas, pastas and desserts are wonderful. The portions are very good sized. Their chocolate mousse and tiramisu are delicious. My favorite dish there is the Panzanella pizza, and in second place the Capresse Focaccia. But the pastas are also very good. There is also parking next to the restaurant. The Il Pomodoro next to the Roosevelt Plaza is nicer than the one closer to the University.
