We had been looking forward to an evening here with our two sons and their wives. The room was so noisy that we could not hear ourselves talk. The party in the next table were literally shouting at each other. We could not hear the background music except for the loud booming bass in the background. We asked the waiter... More

We have been long-term customers of Pomodoro -- it's been our place for great comfort food -- but unfortunately, we won't be back. It's as if the team has gotten complacent or are resting on their laurels or are just spread too thin with their entry into Provincetown. The bolognese, usually so good, was tasteless and only lukewarm when brought... More

I am worried that something is going wrong at Pomodoro after a visit last night. They have changed their menu eliminating some of our favorites along with limiting the entire menu. There were 4 of us and we each ordered something different. I will say that the mussels I had were very in a very tasty well seasoned broth, but... More

While on holidays in Boston recently I enjoyed a delicious dinner here. The staff were so welcoming and friendly and really helpful when I had lots of questions on the menu. I had calamari for starter which were so tasty! Really fresh and crunchy and cooked to perfection. I had a really delicious pasta with beans and tomato sauce for... More

We came here upon the recommendation of our B&B innkeeper and could not have been happier. Everything was just delicious! Meatball appetizers with garlic crisps were awesome and Burrata was melt in your mouth delicious. Both our meals were great too. Our waiter was very attentive and the atmosphere was lovely. One caveat- cash only! Highly recommend. We will return... More

After a couple of visits to this Brookline Village gem, you will become a regular, and any pal of owner Siobhan, gets plied with free appetizers and tableside visits. Hands down, the best tomato sauce I have ever tasted. My husband just wants to eat bread dipped in that divine sauce, and he doesn't even like tomato sauce. Famous for... More

8 of us had a birthday dinner on a weekday night. Brookline Village is an interesing location and parking on the street on a weekday is not terribly difficult. The ambiance of Pomodoro is both comfortable and engeretic. Nice, tame bar scene in the middle of the dining area. Our large party had a big table by the window. The... More

Went here with a few colleagues with whom I was attending a conference. It is a small restaurant, dim lights, and cozy. The food was fantastic. I had a linguine with shrimp, which was delicious. Nice wine selection. Overall a great place to have dinner with a few friends or even a romantic dinner. I wouldn't recommend it for kids... More
