Decent but overpriced

We had dinner there the other night, and the food was good (but decidedly not great), the wine was OK, the atmosphere was "casual" (read crowded old fashioned red sauce Italian) but the prices were a bit steep. The focaccia (at least, that's what I think it was supposed to be) was served with tasteless olive oil that was overwhelmed by sharp (old) garlic and tired herbs. Three pasta entrees, one side of over-garlicky spinach (and I love garlic) and a bottle of ordinary pinot grigio came to $130---plus tip!! With so many alternatives in the neighborhood, I won't go back.

Pomodoro hmmmm it holds a dear place in my heart and it always will. My girlfriend and I found it by accident years ago - lulled in by a smiling Peter as we walked by trying to find a place to eat. We went in and we were hooked - the service was excellent, the food was great and Peter was a charming host. Pomo as we call it became our spot - we made a point of coming in at least once a month. We became regulars, part of the family and we loved it. Time passed and I moved out of state. I always wondered what became of Peter and the guys. Well I found out recently on my last trip back to NYC & Pomo!! My same girlfriend and I made a visit and would you believe Peter and the guys were still there and remembered us as if it were only yesterday!! It was like coming home - we stayed for almost 5 hours at "our table" near the bar - eating awesome food, talking with the staff old & new and just soaking in the feeling of family, good people, great aura and yummy food!!!! We have already made plans for another visit soon and I will always stay in touch with Peter and the guys at Pomo! Give it a try you wont be sorry - tell them Leslye sent you LOL

My husband and i spend about 5 months of the year in NYC and this is one of our regular neighborhood places and we go there at least once a week ! Pasta dishes are large and tasty, and the fish of the day is always lovely ! My husband always has the Papa al Pomodoro which is a small loaf of bread filled with home made tomato soup ! Staff are extremely friendly,smiley and always very helpful ! Great place for lunch or dinner

The pasta was lovely and the serving size was large. Service was very caring and really quite exceptional. The house red wine was really good. However, I noticed that there were few vegetarian selections on the menu - this slight improvement would make this restaurant a 10. The dining room had a warm and cosy interior. It was very romantic. Dessert was excellent, also!

Pomodoro's - Cozy New York find!

A friend who is a New Yorker recommended this restaurant to me and I'm glad I took her recommendation. When I walked in, I thought it was a charming spot lit up with white twinkle lights and it just seemed cozy. The bread sticks are fabulous! They're soft and come with olive oil with fresh garlic and rosemary. My party and I ordered a few appetizers - mussels, calamari and bruschetta - all delicious. I had spaghetti with shrimp and tomatoes; a friend had one of the chicken dishes with sherry sauce and loved it; my husband had a special which was rigatoni with fresh seafood (calamari, shrimp and crab meat) and he thought it was fantastic! I highly recommend this restaurant which seems to be a favorite of the neighborhood.
