“Good value great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2012

Lovely service, fresh food. Great view over the town. The upstairs terrace is fantastic. Matt our waiter was great. All of the food was good and reasonably priced. You feel like you are eating in a very fancy restaurant but it doesn't have the same price tag. For some reason there wasn't a great atmosphere there though.

“Best Italian dishes on the island.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2011

POMODORO; we knew about it before we even go there. When we finally made it on our last night on the island, we found nothing less than an exceptional restaurant. Perfect dishes, fresh ingredients, large quantities, let alone the perfect view of Chora, friendly staff, quite reasonable prices comparing to food quality. It worths a dinner or launch with your company.

“Wow ! What a nice restaurant for our last night in Ios!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2011

Excellent Chora view,the hill,the houses and partly Aegean sea at the West .
Mediterranean cuisine with its incredible smells and flavors all around.
The service is more than sufficient,fast and polite.
We have tried our custom made pizza,salads and pastas.Totally fresh and homely tastes!
Prices are reasonable and we have nothing to complain about.
Will meet you again in the future dear Pomodoro personel!

“Great Restaurant on Ios!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2011

I've eaten at Pomodoro many times and it never disappoints. There is a downstairs restaurant, however I much prefer the roof deck. You get a view of town the the churches dotting nearby hills. The pizzas are thin crust and delicious and great for sharing, and the platter of dips is super tasty. They have really affordable pitchers of house wine. It's the perfect place to go for dinner and enjoy the beautiful weather. They have lots of different kinds of pizzas - all tasty.

“Pomodoro Italian has a brill atmosphere and great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2009

As you walk into the Pomodoro you can not only smell the food wafting your way, but also feel as you enter the place that it has a unique atmosphere.The restaurant on the first floor is very well furnished and has its own seperate bar, then you walk up to the balcony restaurant by a very old style small spiral staircase.The balcony has lots of space and tables, and part of the balcony restaurant is under cover, which is where the second bar is, where we had our first drink, before ordering opur food.The menu was full of italian dishes, and the staff were all so helpfull in explaining all the ingrediants to the dish that you fancied.Well the food and drinks all went down well, the service of the manageress, who took the orders,Helen, who is a very pretty lass from england,and all the other staff was no less than excellent.I saw the Pomodoro on this tripadvisor page, and i have to say i am so glad i read about it by another reviewer, because its the best Italian restaurant that i have ever been to abroad, or at home.Me thinks I will be back on the beautiful island of Ios late August next year 2010, let anybody try and stop me, as I love the whole island.Had a great time, apart from a silly old englishman causing trouble and a middleaged woman Ogling, wide openeyed,staring at my friend for ages, who ignored her anyway.People who stare at you like the way she did, Ogle, think they can controll your mind by staring at you for long periods, and get you to have sex with them, but it did not work.Those sort of people are sick and dangerous to children and young people.Have been reading David Ikes book on holiday The Biggest Secret, you can learn a lot by reading, and its a good read.Reguards to Ios.See you next year.
