“Slow start but worth the wait”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I dropped in to Pomodoro on a Wednesday evening at about 7.15. The place was about two thirds full but they managed to find me a table. The first thing that struck me was that it was almost unbearably hot
I waited for twenty minutes for anybody to show any interest in taking my order ( I was a couple of minutes away from walking out). Bruschetta, pizza picante calzone and a Peroni. At this point I was told that they didn't have a licence for the whole week - just weekends. So I went without a drink.
My starter arrived about 5 minutes later. Perfectly adequate, if unspectacular. A few minutes later the pizza arrived. It was huge. A fairly daunting prospect but worth the effort. It was slightly burnt on the outside (just how I like it) and had a well balanced filling of mozarella, sausage and pepperoni - spicy but not too hot - with a tomato sauce topping. It was so good that, despite the size, I ate the lot.
As they were busy I declined coffee and dessert as I felt that I was occupying a table that was needed.
Probably worth booking in advance but be prepared to be wait.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Called by one rainy lunch, well about 3pm really, and enjoyed a very tasty meal. Two of us shared a starter and a pizza, which was delicious and had cake and coffee to finish. All was very good. Very friendly staff and fabulous service. Have been on an evening on two separate occasions as part of a large party and enjoyed an excellent buffet. Would recommend.
