The server was prompt and friendly. It was happy hour, so I had two of the house red wine, which was enjoyable. Italian music (opera?) was piped through the restaurant, which led to the enjoyment of the visit. Had the ravioli with marinara sauce, which was good. Next time, I might be braver and try the ravioli with vodka sauce.

We attended for a birthday gathering with a party of 6. Very busy and lively - food was of good standard - good portions, choice and flavour - really enjoyed the food. Less food was the service - the server made too many sexist remarks and was very slow to refill drinks and had to be asked several times. Also sadly the noise level in the restaurant was very very high and this made it very difficult for us to have a conversation between us.
Food worth it but environment needs some work to help with noise level.

Food is ok at best and not willing to offer any substitutions for potatoes with dinner without a ridiculous $2.50 up charge even to swap for vegetable medley or low cost items. Cannot recommend.

We've gone to Pomodoro several times, however, we hadn't been there in some time.
We went last night and we were not impressed. The restaurant was very warm when the 4 of us walked in. Our server, I won't mention her name in this review, was very friendly, however, we learned quickly that she was struggling. We had to ask for drink refills several times, the brought the wrong salad dressing and most of my party finished their salads before I ever got the correct dressing.
We tried the gluten free pizza crust and it was okay. The toppings and cheese were very tasty, but the crust was lacking.
