Super service, good Italian food, reasonable prices, welcoming staff make this a go-to place for comfort food or light meal after a challenging day. Appetizer eggplant rolatini just right, homemade pasta and tasty meatballs, good chianti. We split some dishes and they are good about...More

Take out is good, pizza Abd other Italian dishes are satisfactory. Italian pastries are decent, but not spectacular. Parking good, location good. Decor is average.

Pomodoro is a great little restaurant with a lot of options. Their salads are meals in themselves and their pizza and pastas are always a winner. The restaurant is always packed (the food is the attraction). Unfortunately the space is small and the tables are...More

Just one step above fast food, with formica tabletops, fair service, and relatively poor quality Italian fare. On several occasions, I have tried their pizza, eggplant parmigiana, lasagna, and pasta and found them mediocre.More

We always return to get a pizza here when visiting The Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY. We get take out, but the restaurant always seems packed which shows what good food it is. Fast service and wonderful pizza!

I appreciate you taking the time in sharing with us your constructive observations. I see that you visited in November 2016 but just posted a review - and it's almost February in 2017? That seems odd, in addition, you specify that we have formica tabletops and are one step above fast food.... this is demonstrable false! Are you sure your are writing about the correct restaurant?? We have intricate architectural mahogany woodwork throughout and custom granite table tops. I believe you clicked on Pomodoro in error but visited another establishment. Nevertheless, if you are referring to my establishment ~ POMODORO PIZZERIA & TRATTORIA- On behalf of myself and the staff, please allow me to apologize for the unfortunate occurrence recently regarding your dining experience with us. I regret the disappointments that you and your guests may have experienced. We will diligently work harder to avoid repeating any dissatisfaction that you may have encountered. We value your business and I would like to personally address your concerns. Perhaps you can afford me the time to speak about your mediocre experience??? We have been established in Riverside, CT for close to 15 years {and have had - 6 other successful restaurants over the past 25 years} and while you are perfectly entitled to your opinion; this by far one of the harshest review anyone has given. In a world that thrives on negativity, wherein the social media distorts the truth, corrupts people's mindsets and seems to be getting darker and gloomier>>> the energy and manner that you took to write your review adds to the darkness. We are a family owned and operated establishment that caterers to families, nevertheless, we also appeal to corporate, business and couples. Our food is made with love, generous portions, reasonably priced with the highest quality possible. Yours very truly, Mark A. Mazzotta Proprietor
