The service here was so good! They were very attentive but not at all intrusive. The polenta appetizer was incredibly light, but rich. I had the fish special, and the fish was fine, but the vegetables were the star of the show! Great wines by the glass, too.

Amazing UWS Italian! Been multiple times since 2011, have yet to be disappointed!!! Lobster & shrimp pappardelle is a personal favorite! Great wine selections. Cocktails could use a little work. Service is always polite and efficient. Prices and portions sizes are very fair!

What a gem of a restaurant!! Cheerful décor, clean and welcoming. Friendly staff, fast service. It is difficult to decide what to order and the specials make it harder. Everyone at our table enjoyed their entrée. Delicious food in large servings. Nice wine list. We were planning our next visit as we left the restaurant, it was that good.

This place is fine- not great, not bad. Cute decor, if old fashioned. It gets a robust crowd- reliable southern Italian choices. Not inexpensive-

This place has a pleasant, unassuming atmosphere that seemingly contradicts the creativity and exceptional quality their dishes. This was my second visit and the food is always excellent. The staff are attentive. The ambiance has a comfortable, Italian feel that makes you relax the moment you sit down. Pomodoro has become a "must-go" place when I visit NYC.

We have eaten at Pomodoro many times. Convenient to Lincoln center, the food and service are good and the prices reasonable.

I couldn't have said it better than Zagat's review: "It's like “mama's in the kitchen” cooking up “hearty” Italian classics at this “quaint” UWS vet near Lincoln Center, a “quintessential neighborhood gem” run with “loving care”; since it's “always busy”, insiders make reservations to dodge the “wait for a table.” Insiders tip: go hungry and make a reservation. They have... More

First night in New York close to mid town Manhattan walking, so we stopped in for an evening meal and found this Italian restaurant. I must say there wasn't a lot on the menu that seemed to interest me and I like Italian food, so I had the bake ziti, my wife had the eggplant parmesan. All was good but... More

A real Italian chef would be ashamed of the generic stuff they serve here. Red sauce is diced tomatoes apparently straight from the can, and the veg is mass feeding carrots and green beans. They get you in and out fast but the resemblance to real Italian cooking is skiggy

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
