We have been going here since it has opened. We make it down to Sanibel atleast once a year and this place is a must eat every time. The stuffed shells are great but the pizza is even better. We usually have to go twice each trip so i can have both. Also dont pass up the soups. They are... More

We took our good friends to eat tonight. The food as usual was excellent. Our friends r strict vegetarians. They questioned the server and i hate to say he came off as a wise guy and did not treat them with respect. Like i said the food at this Italian place is always great and it was tonight. I have...

Our flight back East got delayed and we needed to eat dinner out. This place is quite simply a gem. The best pasta we've eaten since our trip to Italy. These cooks know how it's supposed to be done. Everything is first rate.

Went to Il Pomodoro on Tues with friends. Our server Inna gave us fast and friendly service. Our friends both had different pasta dishes which they said were great. My husband had one of the specials...two boneless pork chops with roasted red potatoes, and I had a cod dish with a tasty sauce on linguini. We both had huge portions... More

Food was delicious. I ordered a calzone which was huge! The only thing is that there was only one server in the whole place so service was very slow. Please add another server at lunch time.

Made our annual pilgrimage to Il Pomodoro. As always, the portions are huge; the place is busy, busy, busy, and the service is attentive. Tonight the noise was off the charts, a bit unusual, since the patrons were 90% elderly (maybe the hearing aids weren't working--I wear them myself). We both had veal piccata, served with spaghetti and smothered (literally... More

A friend introduced me to this place and I can't get enough of the Cavatelli Spinachio & Broccoli! It is a little pricey for pasta but worth it for good food. Garlic rolls come with every entrée and choice of soup or salad. Nice sized portions as well.. It is a small restaurant, so if you're visiting during season be... More

Found this place the day we arrived in Ft Myers after traveling from the cold northeast. As soon as we walked in the door we could smell all the wonderful foods. The atmosphere was warm and casual. We didn't have a reservation, but they were able to fit us in after a short wait. All the tables were filled on... More

This is our second visit to this restaurant, and each time our group raves about the food and the reasonable prices. Make sure you have a reservation, because it is very popular.
