A party of five of us visited on a Tuesday night - the $10 pasta special night. It took forever for us to get our drinks - 3 glasses of wine and 2 mixed drinks. We made sure to order when the drinks finally arrived since by then we understood our waiter was slow. He asked us if we wanted bread but then never brought it! We had to ask several times. Our pasta specials were decent, but my shrimp dish only had a few shrimps - much more pasta and sauce. We wanted our water refilled and more bread. We finally got him to refill the water but had to beg again for more bread. Then, at the end of the evening, 3 of 5 of us were given checks with the wrong food on them! They included deserts and coffee that was never ordered! I won't be in a hurry to go back.

We've been patrons of Pomodoros for years and have always enjoyed their food. The menu had changed a bit since our previous visit and did not disappoint. Their eggplant was the best I have ever had! Sort of a modern day twist on an old favorite which doesn't overwhelm the palate with cheese & sauce but explodes with fresh flavors. Will continue to return

This restaurant is a great value with a very extensive menu. The butternut squash is to die for and the Caesar salad was fantastic.

This lunch was really great. I asked the waitress for recommendations and had Spaghetti Bolognese and Garbanzo & Vegetable Minnestrone soup. Both were yummy! The waitress, Sarah, was very attentive and friendly. I think this restaurant has improved a lot since my last visit when it was just okay.

We visited twice in 2 days; once for lunch and once for dinner. For dinner, I had the Melitzanes Papoutsakia - a unique eggplant-based dish with artichokes, sundried tomatoes, portabellos,
Kalamata olives, feta, pomodoro sauce and fried leeks. Beautifully presented and delicious. My wife had the lamb chops which were tasty. Service was ok,

We'll be returning.
