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!

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 dr... view more

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.

But it always comes back to the food, the won... view more

Pomodoro Restaurant is one of the most popular places to eat on the Upper West Side. The food and service are always excellent. One of the best Italian places in the city.

A lovely place for the occasion

The service here is rather bland - the waiter being of the smirked-nose etiquette. The restaurant is one of many on the Avenue so reservations are not needed despite the impressions that you might get. The decor inside is nice to observe while you wait and wait for the food. For an Italian restaurant it is rather average with its dishes, however the creme de la creme is their own bakery. The white bread filled to... view more
