This Italian restaurant is smaller than many other eateries in the North End with capacity for 24 patrons but it is quite popular. Space is tight and the tables are small, but the food is outstanding and portions are large. Start with a casear salad followed by a large choice of pasta selections, including a linguine marinara. Braised pork and beef and seared salmon are also among the offerings. Serves beer and wine. Accepts only cash and no credit cards at all.
We had a great time at the Pomodoro can't wait to go back, my friends won't leave me alone about getting together to go back even my 6 year old loved it. The service was excellent, it's also in a great location
on Hanover street across from Caffe Victoria. We finished the evening off with a pastry and coffee at Modern pastry..
We made a reservation for 3 and baby. When we arrived, they said they didn't have high chairs!!?? They offered us no solutions, nothing! Not even the courtesy to try to borrow one from a neighboring restaurant. We had to eat at another restaurant. Very disappointing service.
What an amazing restaurant--food is splendid--good size portions--great presentation-simple menu- which is appreciated--less is more menu wise
in my opinion. Also very friendly hardworking staff run this tiny restaurant--keep up the good work!
The other night my wife and I ate at another restaurant in Boston (besides Pomodoro), at which the fare was considerably more expensinve than at Pomodoro. The waiter was great. But the food was firmly so-so. Afterward, we asked ourselves the question: where have we had the BEST MEAL IN BOSTON during our 15-year sojourn? The first name that came out of both of our mouths was: POMODORO. This was in spite of the fact that we actually hadn't eaten at Pomodoro in over 6 months! A few nights later, we went back to Pomodoro. We were not disappointed!
In a couple of weeks an important business associate of mine is coming to town. I know she has a bit of an adventuresome palette. I plan to take her to Pomodoro. It's certainly the most memorable eating experience I've had in Boston!
Pomodoro was actually recommended to me by the maitre'd of a fabulous New York City eatery. Because of the initial connection, I expected a big, fancy, overblown, overpriced establishment where the food happened to be ok. Boy was I off! Pomodoro is a small, low-key restaurant that gives you the sense of sitting just outside your Italian grandmother's kitchen. The food is tasty, the service is warm and friendly, and the prices are incredibly reasonable. I adore Boston's North End, and this establishment is my favorite in the area. Be sure to carry cash- otherwise you will be sprinting down the street to the nearest ATM.
Although the North End is known for it's great eats, very few places serve brunch, which usually just consists of locals. A group of friends and I opted to try Pomodoro, which recently just started a brunch menu. The menu posted in the window had few drink options, but highlighted Bloody Marys and Mimosas. When we sat down to order our Bloody Marys, we learned that they only had a beer and wine license and never had either of these things. The waitress, who sat in the corner drinking her coffee and reading magazines was really rude. The one thing that was redeemed was the food, although the steak and eggs options was also unavailable. Overall a disappointing experience.
In reading other reviews I was shocked to see the low reviews for service...then I realized SEVERAL OF THE REVIEWS ON THIS SITE ARE FOR POMODORO IN BROOKLINE, NOT THE NORTH END! We have been returning to Pomodoro on Hanover St. in the North End for six years. The salmon is to die for. The atmosphere is casual, not slick. If you are looking for the more touristy Italian North End scene like arbors on he ceiling with plastic grapes and faux frescoes on the wall, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for excellent food with a hard working staff that will not coddle you, but will serve you well, this restaurant is a great bet. Definitely one of the best restaurants in the North End. Go, and enjoy!
