We can't say enough great things about this restaurant... We visit, on business, about every 3 months and we eat here at least twice during out stay. The food is cooked to perfection EVERY TIME we come! The service is always fantastic, and the atmosphere is what you should expect in an Italian Family restaurant. We love eating outside on... More

We picked this Italian restaurant at random based on the menu selections on the website. The prices are in the mid range. Overall the food was excellent with a large selection of pasta, fish, chicken, etc. meals. Very fresh tasting and very good portions. We will definitely come back if we are in the area. The garlic bread was also... More

This is a MUST if you are looking for an Italian meal! Not only is the food phenomenal, the owner and staff are very friendly. I had the chicken piccata with angel hair pasta. The flavor of the piccata was exceptional. My husband had the chicken parm & he loved it. The sauce is made daily at the restaurant. Don't... More

We went for lunch and though it was pricy ( they give you a 20% discount off the dinner menu) it was really good. I had an excellent linguini and clams, my husband chicken Marsala. It comes with addictive garlic bread served with a side of house made marinara . The patio is a great place to watch life in... More

Had dinner here on a quiet Thursday evening. Really good service with top notch food, served hot and flavorful. Portions are quite generous so we suggest you one entrée and salad. Unless of course you are really hungry!

Return visit. Some of the best Italian around. A bit pricey but worth it. Staff is friendly, welcoming and very accommodating. My wife ate the left overs for lunch and she never does that! Salads are big enough to share. Save room for desert!

The meatball is amazing and huge. I had it for an appetizer. I love meatballs and this is the best ever. Entree wasn't "too bad either ". Pizza and wine great.

When I couldnt find parking anywhere near Little Italy, I gave up and headed back to where I was staying near Carlsbad. A friend recommended an Italian restaurant there but as I parked and walked toward it, I was headed off by an attractive host passing out Italian bread (yep! it worked! handsome man bribing me with carbs). It was... More

My husband and I went to have lunch Caldo Pomodoro in Carlsbad on a beautiful rainy day. From the moment we arrived Mr. Bill Lockhart made us feel very comfortable. His hospitality was first-rate! We very much enjoyed the delicious Pastas Palermo, with shrimp, and Bolognese very much, including the wine and garlic bread. Our experience at Caldo Pomodoro was... More
