Pomodoro's was a fantastic find in Seattle and a perfect way to end our trip. The food was outstanding and the owner who visited our table a number of times was very accommodating. We sampled 4 dishes from the specials menu. They were all excellent. Highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

Overall really liked the place. Had a local family run feel with some solid food options. The linguine with shrimp was excellent (sauce slightly thicker than I would like)The shrimp was grilled so had a nice char to to it. The rest of the group gave thumbs up to the manicotti and linguine with chicken. Cesar salad was good..Homemade dressing... More

During a week of trying many different restaurants in Seattle, we found a true gem on East Lake. Excellent Italian food, which we expected. What was the huge bonus was our waiter. He was 60ish, like me, and was unabashedly old-school. A true professional waiter. Haven't seen one in years. My 17 year old son was quite impressed as well.... More

We had dinner for a medium sized party of 9 celebrating a UW graduate two Sunday's ago. Our ninth guest was a late add but Chef Antolin was so positive about it even though it was a squeeze. The chef took good care of us and made sure everyone got what they wanted even though it took some modifications. The... More

We were given a gift certificate to this restaurant. We made the drive across town and were not disappointed. The wonderful aroma when we walked in the door made us instantly feel like we were some place special. The service was top notch and they were very helpful in advising us on wines. They brought us a few samples before... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of dining here yesterday with her cousins, long term frequent guests at Pomodoro. I say guests because that is the way they and now us were welcomed by the Chef-Owner, Antolin Blanco. He and his staff treated us as family throughout our stay at his intimate restaurant on East Lake. I really can't... More

Our daughter led us to this quaint and intimate restaurant while visiting Seattle. The owner greeted us at the table and filled us in on his culinary training and background. He is originally from Spain and professionally trained in Italy, thus inspiring the eclectic menu offerings. Paella and pasta? It works. We were all pleased with our meals. The Caesar... More

Went there for a friend's going away dinner. It was an Italian dinner for me after a really long time. The restaurant is located in the middle of not so busy neighborhood, so you get a very good feeling of being in the mix of a city's hurly burly and a residential neighborhood's quiet. The décor of the restaurant is... More

Perhaps it had been 6 or 8 months since we'd met freinds here and I'm so glad we returned. I still like the parking being provided (In the attached building). 4 of us had an out of the way round table, so the noise level was pretty good. I ordered the special pasta with features crab and was a litle... More

This is a charming small Italian restaurant. We went with our Italian friends that are real foodies and they loved the food. The gnocchi was excellent as well as the veal bolognese. The only disappointment was the tiramisu. It was good, but not fantastic. Everything else was fantastic. They have a full bar and they make an excellent manhattan.I don't... More
