Pomodoro, at 229 Columbus Avenue 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.

So glad my husband and I wandered in after a move. It’s become our favorite spot for a celebration or just a nice evening out. Great menu and everything we’ve had has been great. Love the friendly, unfussy warmth Pomodoro offers.

This is the last time we'll go there. Over the years, it was really lovely, but no longer. Everything has changed, even the food. Sorry Peter, but something isn't right and you're not correcting it. Having discussed this with a few friends and neighbors, they too have said the same thing. Fortunately, there are other restaurants. Having said this, it saddens us to not say it's one of our favorite places any longer. Good luck !

Excellent service. Excellent wine. Excellent food, especially the bread! A bit pricey, but probably the norm for that part of the City. Only real negatives were the crowded seating and the volume. If tested, I would get 100 on the content of the conversations of the people sitting next to us. We could hear one another okay at our own table, but it was loud. When having a nice piece of sea bass, I don't haven't to learn at what age the woman next to me lost her virginity.

Pomodoro used to be a wonderful Italian restaurant with beautiful murals and ambiance. The ambiance is the best thing about this restaurant now. The food is so mediocre and used to be wonderful. It is way over priced. We had a small kale salad with beets and goat cheese $16. I ordered lobster ravioli in cream sauce and I was handed 6 medium sized raviolis drowning in cream sauce $37. To make matters worse the ravioli tasted like I bought it in the frozen section of my grocery store. Not good at all. I sent it back and didn’t get anything else I was so disappointed. The best thing they have is their focaccia bread with garlic olive oil to dip. I won’t be going back.

I hadn't been to this neighborhood gem in a while but glad I chose it to for a dinner celebration with my friend. The ambiance is warm and cozy. The staff was attentive throughout our dinner. We both had delicious pasta dishes and shared salad and dessert. The food was great. My advance request for a birthday candle and song was honored and executed beautifully. Highly recommend.

We discovered Pomodoro Rosso on our last trip to NYC and it’s a safe bet to say it will be a must for all future visits! The service was exceptional, with the manager making several trips to our table to double check that we had everything we needed. The small restaurant was packed with what appeared to be a lot of locals- which is always a good sign. Chicken pesto gnocchi was excellent! Chicken parm was delicious!
