My husband and I discovered this restaurant quite by chance and what a find! Service was friendly and welcoming. It was not busy - it was lunchtime on a Tuesday. They seem to be renovating the centre it is based in so this may in part explain this. Menu is varied and reasonably priced. All pasta is home made which makes a massive difference to the taste. I ordered cannelloni which was perfect. My husband's pizza was pronounced tasty with a lovely balance of ingredients. Can't ask for more than that! The experienced chef is from Italy, as is the rest of the family that run Pomodoro's. A happy lunch experience. Will be back if the opportunity presents itself.

We expected good basic pizza, but got excellent pizza instead. Even a medium-size is quite large and loaded with toppings. Very tasty !
The place appears a bit chaotically organized, but service is very good and friendly.

We have been going to Pomodoro for years, it was under Nigel when we became regulars and has changed owners twice, it is very very good under the present management, to us it is a very special place they also seem to know how it get it right. We used it allot when my Dad was very sick and they always found us a quiet table now my Mum is in a wheelchair they are brilliant very kind and sensitive to peoples needs. There are lots of great restaurants but a it takes a really special to get it right with a disabled person, Pomodoro does. The food and service perfecto. Sad about the other reviews, my option Pomodoro is great is a family fun place with lovely food.

Having been a regular for the last few years I've been disappointed by the new management and their inability to even acknowledge regulars. Add to this the fact that we waited almost an hour for our starters and another 40 mins for mains without a single word of apology and it made for a disappointing evening. The fact that this is the second time in a month this has happened and we won't be back.
