Service was great as usual. Our server Jason was excellent. The food is always top notch. The veal Parm is outstanding as was the special Grouper dish. Penne pasta was also very good. The place is under new ownership and the only difference we could see was the portions seemed to be slightly smaller but they were still very large. Prices looked to be about the same and the decor has not been changed.

Had heard about this place from a few people and decided to try it. Service was timely and friendly. Atmosphere nice but loud. Food very good and served in large portions. Three of us outa four got togo boxes. Price was fair especially considering quality and quantity of servings. I will be thanking people tomorrow for the recommendation.

We waited an insanely long time after seated. Finally someone took our drink order and brought garlic knots. Best part of the meal. The margarita pizza was good. The fettuccini Alfredo with shrimp was ridiculously overpriced and super small portions swimming in butter sauce. It tasted like buttered popcorn. Do not recommend. Long story short....long wait times, high prices and small portions does not make an establishment a "fancy Italian restaurant". It just runs off customers.

After not being here for a while we went back. Well the food was just terrible hardly any chicken in the $22.00 special way to much garlic which also make the favor very bitter and to much olive oil. The brocco;i rabe was so bitter you couldn't eat it. The salad was very small and hardly had any dressing on it. The whole pasta dish was just bitter. They seem to be using way to much garlic in their dished what are they trying to hide??

We've been to Il Pomodoro a half-dozen times and usually enjoy it very much. The ambiance is good and service is usually fine (though sometimes a little slow or crabby.) When we get the veal piccata, we always love it and have some left to take home. However, we have been disappointed in the pizza, when the crust is to thick and hard to cut or chew, and the ingredients -like sausage- are too large and have to be cut up. The pizza flavors are good, but we'd probably choose someplace else for pizza the next time. We'd recommend it and we will probably take more friends there, with a little qualification about the particular dishes you order.
