food was amazing and great service and the employees made you feel like you were part of the family
Fabulous neighborhood restaurant. Food is consistently delicious. Service is always prompt and friendly.
The ambiance is warm and welcoming.
God. Is delicious. Very nice atmospkeree
Never disappoints. Brought an out-of-town visitor who enjoyed it. Was even quiet at lunch enabling us to have a business discussion.
Very good Italian food. Pretty brick wall and nice ambiance. Service was friendly and excellent. Great place to spend a romantic evening.
This is a neighborhood gem. The food is always outstanding and the service excellent. They make you feel special and comfortable
The food is good but doesn’t justify the prices.
Great service , coupled with diverse selection of great dishes, with a host that makes a great dining experience and well worth the meal.
Rude manager. The reservation does not work.
New year’s eve
Pomodoro Rosso was a wonderful choice for our New Year’s Eve dinner. The service was terrific. We were warmly greeted by the maitre d’ who found us a comfortably located table. Our waitress was solicitous, as was the other dining room staff. My husband especially enjoyed his Moretti Rosso beer, a selection not offered at other restaurants. The daily specials were truly special, pork Milanese with fettuccine Alfred for my husband and sautéed chicken with artichoke hearts and mushrooms in a white wine sauce with vegetables for me. For dessert we shared the enormous Italian sundae. Portions were large enough to take home leftovers for the next day. The atmosphere in the restaurant was warm and friendly and we were happy to chat with people at nearby tables. Pomodoro Rosso is a reliable favorite of ours.
Great new year's eve dinner. Reservations promptly honored. Restaurant was busy but service was great. Having the owner there overseeing things makes for a great experience. Food was delicious. Neighborhood gem of many years.
Never, and I do mean never, disappoints!!! Have been coming here for years - am hooked on their veal. Highly recommend Pomodoro Rosso.
In NYC for a getaway. Pomodoro was wonderful. Cozy, friendly and delicious.
Quaint, authentic, Italian cuisine in a great neighborhood. Calamari was perfectly cooked and served with marinara sauce (the way it should be). Papparadelle pasta and chicken parmigiana was outstanding.
Good food. Great service. Highly recommend it.
Pasamos la noche buena y estuvo todo muy bien. Lo único flojo fue el postre Lava Cake, que podría estar mejor.
We've been coming here for years and it's always crowded, always noisy and always good. Disappointment this time with veal piccata (overcooked), but the swordfish special with scallops and shrimp was probably the best thing I've ever had, there. We always order the burrata. It's the best I've had, anywhere (and I've tried it everywhere). The tricolore salad was a little bland, but that's to my liking. I imagine it would not be everyone's favorite.
Service is always friendly, if a bit frenetic. Water glasses never have a chance to sit empty, but you might have to ask twice for another cup of coffee. It was also Christmas Eve, so I'm inclined to give some slack to staff.
What concerns me is cleanliness. The bathrooms are always dirty and a mess and obviously not looked after. Hopefully, the old adage that a restaurant kitchen is only as clean as its bathroom is untrue. There was also a giant puddle of water in front of the bar that you had to walk through, to get to your table. Nobody cleaned it up and nobody seemed concerned that someone might take a header.
The front door is a bit crazy when multiple guests arrive simultaneously and you might be ignored for a few minutes, but nobody is unfriendly.
My quibbles are not enough to stop me going back again and again (sometimes multiple times in a week). Prices are reasonable ($25-30 entrees with pizzas half that).
We had a lovely dinner here. The food was excellent as was the service and it wasn't too noisy! My only negative is that the tables are very close together and I was bumped by other visitors.
Post ballet, awesome walkable, super authentic choice. And we eat a ton of Italian. Thank you.
Family came to holidays...
Nice neighborhood restaurant. Portions are generous. Sunday afternoon brunch or early evening dinner recommended to avoid the noise.
I've never had a bad meal in 10 years. Food and bread is delicious!! Service is also very good and quick. A favorite UWS place.
This is a favorite restaurant on the UWS for me and my friends and colleagues. Having a little reunion with work colleagues, this was chosen by one of them. The food is great and so is the service. It was a great experience.
The staff were friendly and accommodating. You will love this restaurant for its authentic Italian cuisine. The zuppa de pesce was the best I’ve ever eaten. To top everything, the setting is pure Italian bistro. What a great ambience! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves great Italian food, served in a wonderful setting, by a professional and friendly staff.
Always good food at this crowded UWS spot. That's why we keep coming back.
Excellent food and service
We always eat at Pomodoro Rosso and it is always a wonderful experience. So many customers are long time devotees and are always greeted with open arms. Service is terrific, nothing is lacking. Our meals are always so good! What a neighborhood gem.
The maitre d' could not make you feel more welcome when you enter the restaurant. The service is wonderful and the food consistently delicious.
The menu offers many different and delicious options. We’ve never been disappointed by anything we have ordered. Our cocktails especially the White Peach Cosmopolitan were very good. Appetizers always seem big enough for two people to share. Entree portions are large. The host is always warm and welcoming ensuring all is well. The waitstaff are attentive and excellent. We are lucky to have this restaurant in our neighborhood.
Our meal was a birthday celebration. We were warmly greeted and seated upon our arrival. Water and breadbasket were delivered immediately. Drink orders were taken promptly. For our meals, my husband had Steak Florentine, substituting pasta agli olio for spinach. I ordered Pollo Rugantino, a personal favorite. Both our portions were delivered hot and portions were generous, the way we like them. Leftovers were enjoyed at home the following evening. For dessert we shared the enormous Italian ice cream sundae. Dining room staff stopped by to check on us several times. It was a delightful meal.
Overall the food was just not good. We will not be back and should have payed more attention to Yelp. Disappointed.
Pleasant homey atmosphere. Good food at a reasonable price. Courteous and attentive staff.
Found this gem on open table during a recent visit to NY and SO glad we did. Food was delicious, moderately priced and very large portions.
Went there for dinner. Food was delicious. Reservations highly recommended. Very busy. Table are close together. Seemed like a lot of the people dining were local and regulars.
This is great southern italian! I would have given it 5 stars but we had to send back the clams oreganato as they were spoiled. The service wasn’t great either. It’s a hectic, bustling, small place but the food in general was really good. Good for nearby Lincoln center.
One of my favorite neighborhood places. Fantastic all around!
My wife and I had dinner there for the first time earlier this week. I had one of the specials - a lamb ragout over gnocchi which was very good. My wife had the eggplant parmigiana which was good, but had too much breading for her taste. The manager (owner?) talks to everyone about their meals so we discussed the eggplant dish with him - he told us that they would happily prepare it differently (grill the eggplant instead of frying it) or do anything else possible to make the meal more suited to our tastes. The point of this story is that it illustrates fantastic customer obsession from the restaurant staff. I will definitely go back again. Very good value. Wonderful people.
Food is reliably delicious. Atmosphere and personal service is terrific. Strongly recommend.
Great food, great service, really good atmosphere. Terrific local Italian for us!
