On a rainy Sunday night the parking lot was quite full. We soon discovered why; the quality of the food here is very good. My wife and I share a pizza and she ordered a house salad to accompany her single slice of pizza. She...More

After a round of golf, my next-door neighbor wanted to get some lunch at Pomodoro as he had recently eaten there and liked it. It has been over 7 years since I last dined at Pomodoro. The meal we last had there was nothing memorable...More
