General Info:
Where the locals go for delicious, home style, hearty Italian food. Let us host your special event or order a romantic take-out dinner for two. Evening reservations required for parties of 5 or more. Ask for Peter (owner and manager) Tell Peter which famous Seinfeld episode Pomodoro Rosso was featured in and receive a free glass of wine with any entrée on your first visit. Pomodoro, has been a neighborhood favorite for years. The beautifully prepared Italian classics and excellent service has earned this restaurant a loyal following of Upper West Siders. Beige walls adorned with decorative ceramic plates from Italy, a ceiling trellis with hanging grapes and red and white-checkered tablecloths evoke the feeling of an authentic Italian trattoria. The street side outdoor café is the place to sit and enjoy a glass of wine and savor the antipasti while watching the people stride by. The home-made quality of Pomodoro's specialty dishes are the talk of the town. As you feast your eyes on the menu selections, the very friendly staff gets you started with delectable homemade foccacia and a basket of bread. The beautifully scripted menu will entice you to try the Antipasti, favorites like Calamare Fritti, fresh Mozzarella with tomato, basil and olive oil, or the house specialty, Pappa al Pomodoro, a Tuscan stale of herbed tomato soup, which is served in a scooped-out loaf of round bread. Large bowls of piping hot pastas like Mafeldina al Sugo di Carne, a fresh fettuccine in a rich, meaty tomato sauce or Ravioli alla Aragosta, stuffed with lobster meat in a light cream sauce, keep people coming back for more. Stella seafood selections include Zuppe di Pesce and Risotto Pescatore. Traditional Italian fare like Veal Scallopine sautéed with wild Rugantino, chicken breast topped with goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes and Portobello mushrooms in a sherry wine sauce and Salmone al Capperi, salmon topped with capers. Servers will always describe the specials of the evening in mouth-watering detail. Enjoy homemade desserts with an Italian accent like with a luscious cup of cappuccino or a strong espresso for the perfect finale to a truly delightful meal. PomodoroBuon Appettito!

Best Italian in the area!!

I have always enjoyed this place and know when I have friends visiting we can go here and the food & service is always consistantly stellar. Recently, I went here solo (yes I was craving their fresh pasta) and as I walked up to the door and said ""Table for one"", I realized it was prime time on a Sat night!! I was so embarrasssed -but guess what?? They treated me as if I was a party of eight - full service & everything. I love the bread & oil here, and the daily specials never fail.

Excellent, reliable Italian

I have eaten here at least 50 times. The food is simply amazing, the service is excellent as well, the staff are extremely friendly. Unfortunately, the entire UWS also knows this, because the restaurant is always PACKED with a wait list. The Penne alla Grappa is the best dish in the house, but it's hard to choose, especially when they tell you the specials for the night. Halloween is a fun night, the waitstaff dresses up. Pomodoro even has a mention or two on old Seinfeld episodes (""Pomodoro is where you go when you break up with people""). 5 STARS, easy.

mngordo

Aside from occasionally feeling a bit ""crowded"" (and it should be) what can be said for this excellent Italian UWS favorite. Peter the host, and owner, makes you feel right at home. ALL dishes are beautifully prepared and are large in size. Wine by the glass (house wine is a really large pour, and is of decent quality). Wine list is also adequate. Mixed drinks are fine. But it always comes back to the food, the wonderful food. Several other reviewers have noted ""consistency"" as a wonderful quality of this restaurant and they are correct. The only inconsistency might be the service, but even that has improved of late and it wasn't bad to begin with.
Go there and you won't be sorry.

No frills - fab food!!

Very unassuming from the outside but inside is a warm, homey atmosphere, simple but delicious Italian classics and great service. There are tons of little italian joints like this on the UWS - but this is one of the best ones. And the price is great too!!
