I left without having dinner. Took 20 minutes to get someone to take our order. Pizza came out uncooked, but worse was no one came by to check, so my fellow diner FINISHED their meal before I could get help. Horribly uncomfortable, and this was...our second visit that was worse than the last. We are done with this place, it has slipped too far for the pricing. Too bad, it had promise.More

We were just stopping overnight in the area and sought out a decent place to eat after 8 hours of driving. We found this through online searches. We have not been eating indoors in restaurants since the pandemic started. We managed to have a seat...on the patio enclosed by windows; a window by us was opened for us. We took what is for us a risk as we hadn't eaten since early morning. What a fantastic food experience! The salads, the bread and dipping olive oil, the entrees... This place is truly something outstanding, and the service was phenomenal as well. Everything about this place is well thought out. . Don't miss it.More

Nicely prepared and presented Italian/Mediterranean dishes served in a Comfortable, Cozy, and Casual environment. Although 'Pizzeria' is part of their name, - and I'm sure that they are good, the menu transcends that of just a 'Pizzeria' and offers 'fine dining' opportunities as well.... The...small - but lively Bar was lively with chatter and inviting with 'smiley faces' The service was 'top notch' - our Server (Suelle - if I'm spelling that correctly) was 'on it' but un-harried and displaying aplomb in maintaining an easy rapport and orderly continuity of 'flow'.....

We had great hopes for this restaurant, but it was a very very disappointing experience. First, we had booked the enclosed porch, hoping that windows would be open as we do not eat inside due to the pandemic as a rule (even though we are...vaccinated). When we arrived, the host told us that area was "full" which was extremely frustrating as we had intentionally booked far ahead to get these porch seats. Second, I once heard it said that one of the characteristics of the best restaurants is that a customer never has to ask for water. I had to ask for water for my table THREE times. That is PATHETIC. Third, the two female servers were very snotty. I have no idea what their problem was. There was zero warmth, zero kindness. They were so unfriendly and frankly hostile. (We are people who NEVER have issues at restaurants so this was frankly shocking. We routinely tip 30% if service is excellent, and we are greatly appreciated by servers at places as a rule as they appreciate our patience, warmth, and kindness.) Third, my niece asked to have the drinks menu as she decided she wanted a drink after she ordered her food. We never got the drinks menu. Fourth, we were not at all impressed with the entrees. The quality was not at all what we expected.This was supposed to be a lovely meal out with my niece to meet her boyfriend for the first time.More

This place has amazing quality of food. It's made to look and taste wonderful. This place looks small from the outside but quite nice inside. Usually some restaurants have good service and bad food or vice versa. This place had awesome food and was complimented...by the great service. I have not had a better meal in quite a long time. The server was genuinely happy to be working there and her true excitement fueled the wonderful business lunch. I had the Pizza with the same name as the restaurant, salad and calamari. Seriously loved all aspects. Bathrooms were cleaner than anywhere I have been in years. Good job guys, keep it up! So happy about this meal and will add this to my regular dinner stops! Wow so good! Thanks againMore

It was extremely busy and the pizzas we ordered for take-out reflected it. Both pizzas were extremely flaccid and the sauce on both the garden pizza and margarita pizza were more like a lukewarm tomato soup. “Cooked”, cut and boxes without any quality control. This...restaurant has officially become home of the worst pizza I have ever had the pleasure of throwing away.More

It's a good thing I don't live closer to Il Pomod'Oro because I'd be there every day. The food was fresh, tasted amazing, and the drinks were perfect. Suella took care of everything we needed, made excellent recommendations, and was fun to talk to. It...will be our regular Friday night go-to when we are in town.More

We had an amazing lunch! The arugula salad with shrimp blew me away! My husband devoured the tuna sandwich! Everything was extremely fresh and presentation was delightful. The restaurant itself is aesthetically pleasing and comfortable. Suella, our bartender, made drinks that were pure perfection! I...would not hesitate to come back here even one little bit! She was friendly and very informative about all that the restaurant has to offer.More
