If you like classic, no-nonsense Italian dishes, without the frills but with good service, then Pommidoro is the place for you. It's a taxi ride away from the centre in the working class district of San Lorenzo. I enjoyed my pasta (carbonara) and main dish (grilled pork with sauteed potatoes) and the prize was extremely good value. Service was very friendly

Was taken here by locals, a wonderful experience, highly recommend the artichoke bruschetta and of course, the carbonara.

The raving reviews here don't match the experience at all. Yes, it's "affordable", but the food wasn't great.

I love a good carbonara, and this one was OK at best. The thick bacon was the best part, which shouldn't be the case when you make it well. My girlfriend's cacio e pepe was just boring, and I suspect the pepper was not freshly ground since it tasted kind of stale. The pasta might have been slightly under al dente as well...

Add to that the 2€ per person coperto that isn't mentioned anywhere until you get the check, and I'd say that there are better places to try, especially in this neighborhood.

I went with a group of friends for a late dinner and we were positively surprised how friendly and fast the service was, despite been super busy all the day! Tasty dishes from the Roman hunters' tradition that will definitely widen your horizon on the local food culture.

Very exceptional food, we tried pajata spaghetti and matriciana spaghetti!!! Delicious both. Very good service, the communication was a bit strange (as no one could speak English).
