Upon arrival two pizzas were ready and waiting but the third had been forgotten about. While the two pizzas got cold, the third was prepared. We asked if we could have some... More

Usually not a pizza fan, but family convinced me to try the pizzas from Pomodoro's - Wow!! Absolutely delicious, with likely the best bases I've ever tried.

It was always a favourite and had many good meals there but last night it lacked something, do not know why or what. We still had a fairly good meal last night but one thing I missed was the "BUZZ" it always had.

Lovely Pizza ... I would highly recommend their Pizza, the base is not thin and not thick. The tomato on the base is yummy! However the owner or manager (thin Italian guy) is not very friendly and rather rude.

Pomodoro offers a easy menu with lots of choices. The food is always fresh and full of flavor. The gnocchi is great.

Because Jill is a coeliac and cannot eat any foods containing oats barley rye or wheat, Pizza does not figure highly in our Restaurant requirements; but a friend eats there regularly and checked that they have a gluten free alternative. This is not a Fine Dining restaurant and the tables, chairs, crockery and cutlery are all plain and simple with... More
