Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant is top-class, and excellent value for money. I had lunch here yesterday with my sons, the second time we've been. It's all excellent, with a good menu and drinks, friendly people, nice decor and a relaxed atmosphere. The cooking is spot-on, and the...service is punctilious. I'd happily recommend this place to anyone, and it deserves being better known. It's got the lot, and I'm sure that more publicity would work to boost its popularity.More

Your typical warm friendly slightly chaoatic local restraunt, with some good pasta! Service was slightly everywhere but they had charm to pull it off.

We went for a meal before going to a pub for New Year's Eve. It was very very quiet and this is not the first time we have been one of only two occupied tables. Food is nice and service fine but definitely needs more...atmosphereMore

I used to live near and I have tried all the types of risotto they do! Those risottos are real masterpieces so try it! But as far as I remember I did not like any dessert so go for tiramisu to another place.

Wonderful local pizzeria which makes the most delicious pizza. They do the basics well, giving you large 14" pizzas with plenty of cheese and plenty of toppings, for reasonable prices (8.99 collection). Personal favourites: Pomodoro special, Ham and Mushroom, Garlic Bread with mozzarella. They also...do local delivery at slightly higher prices. Yum!More

Waitress was friendly Decor was clean but boring Atmosphere was non existent Food was average :( Sorry!

This is a lovely pizza pasta place, staff are very friendly, very good service actually excellent whilst waiting for my take out had a glass of wine the owner bought me a plate of olives which were delicious it was a nice unexpected touch. The...pizza and pasta was cooked to perfection and was kept warm for me whilst I was slurping my wine and enjoying the moments. I even was able to use the wi fi in the restaurant. Reasonably priced great place for friends, family etc to meet would go back there again most definitely. The guys that work there are simply lovely.More

Maybe a more welcoming hello would go a long way in this place. I didn't feel the love that much when I entered. The menu was pretty decent and prices quite reasonable. My pasta dish was a little bland however and lacking in seasoning. The...pasta was well cooked though. The salad would have benefitted from being dressed a bit better. 10% was added to the bill automatically. Overall lacking but could easily be better with a little more care.More

I've been to Pomodoro in West Norwood twice with my boyfriend. Very nice staff. They make some good pasta dishes - last time I had Tagliatelle Boscaiola (see picture) and it was very tasty. Then I shared a pizza Margherita with by boyfriend but the...quality of the ingredients didn't reach our expectations - for me the bread just didn't feel like the true Italian pizza dough I've tried in other pizzarias in London. It felt a bit like a "fast food" kind of pizza.More

For the West Dulwich/Crystal palace area I thought this was a good small restaurant offering mainstream Italian fare at a good 'value for money' price. Wines also better value than at many places. eg Verdichio at sub £20. Will go again if in the area.

I love this place as it is small but charming. The staff are attentive and the pizza and pasta dishes are really good. It is perfect for an impromptu weekday meal out.
