Do you want to eat a great pizza that brings you back you back Rome and Venice ? The trip to Pomodoro E Mozarella is a lot shorter but just as satisfying. The passion and skills of the master pizzero brings to the unsuspected lucky...guests the fresh flavors of Italy in St. Charles. A wonderful friendly atmosphere where every customer leaves happy and fully satisfied. This is The Best Pizza in the area if you like authentic Italian pizza with high quality ingredients and a lot of soul put into making it. We will be back time and time again. I can’t recommend just one pizza and I think no matter what you are ordering you will be happy that you did. Buon appetito !More

We are never disappointed by the quality or diliciousness of any of the dishes we have had at Pomodoro e Mozzarella. Everything is fresh tasting, none of that pre-prepped store bought taste. The owner even makes his own bread! Our favorites are of course the...pizza, but the pasta is also outstanding. My go to is the spaghetti Bolognese, and my husband will always get the fettuccine with artichokes and mushrooms in a light cream sauce, it is called Fettuccine Zio Pino. The Romano salad is not to be missed! Fresh crispy greens, roasted red peppers, artichokes, buffalo mozzarella, olives, and onions. The flavors blend together beautifully topped with homemade balsamic vinaigrette. When you add in the fresh homemade crusty bread it tastes like Heaven!More

Earlier this year in late summer my wife and I had a lovely lunch in their outdoor dining area which we recently remembered because we wanted to go back to try the pizza. Oh my, what a wonderful experience that goes well beyond good food!...Sometimes you find a place with good food but the human connection isn't there. Sometimes the human connection is in place but not so much the food. This place has the right combination of delicious home made Italian food and a family that you would love to be a part of. Just right! Yeah, it's in a strip mall on a busy street. So what? The food is excellent, prepared and served with love.More

Popped by after a friend told me about this place. I ordered the Caprese sandwich. OMG! The bread and fresh mozzarella were outstanding. I took it to go but while waiting, I saw people come and go that were “regulars” based on this is what...Italian food really is. Will be back soon!More

The owners are authentic Italian and so very friendly. Their Margaretta pizza is our go to pizza but all of their pizza is awesome. Mozzarella sticks are a must. My only complaint, and this is a small complaint, is that the parking lot is not...very easy to navigate. Tight quarters...More

Went here on a recommendation. Found a great place. Friendly service and the food was outstanding. The home made bread might have put it over the top. The pizza looked great will be going back for that. Had chicken marsala and a beet salad both...were GREAT! Wife had gnocchi and it was wonderful.More

Read an article in the paper about this restaurant and really wanted to give it a try. My expectations were way above what they were able to deliver. The establishment itself is unremarkable and basic, no frills. But I didn't come for decor, I came...for a great pizza. Unfortunately, Pomodoro did not live up to it's hype. Huge disappointment. Substandard crust, sauce, and cheese. And way too much cheese by the way. Hey, I ordered a pizza not an open face grilled cheese sandwich, but I digress. Having eaten real Italian pizza all over Italy all I can say is this was a big, big disappointment.More

We visited Pomodoro E Mozzarella last weekend at the insistence of relatives, who also insisted we order the Bruschetta & Mozzarella appetizer. The place is very small in a strip center west of Downtown St. Charles. There are only a few tables inside and out....Inside was spotlessly clean and bright with muted grey tones. We first were served a basked of wonderful sliced bread and olive oil, the then came the appetizer. The vegetables were fresh and well-seasoned and the toasted bread was crunchy and chewy, just as it should be. We ordered a "straight-up" pepperoni and cheese pizza and a spinach and sausage pizza from the wood-fired oven. The crusts were slightly different, but both were perfectly cooked and the toppings were great. No wine or beer is available, but the cooler has Italian water, tea and soft drinks, for very reasonable prices. I wish that P E M were closer to our home; if it were, we would be devoted regular diners.More

I had visited Pomodoro many times and can’t say enough about how friendly the owners are - Joseph is generally in the kitchen proudly making amazing meals from scratch and will make dishes not on the menu, like my favorite gnocchi in a Gorgonzola sauce!...Pizza is great as well - all in, Pomodoro is my Chicago area mom & pop favorite!More

My wife and I were in the mood for Pizza and found Pomodoro E Mozzarella on trip advisor. As it was on our way home and all the reviews were positive we decided to try it out. We ordered their Sicilian deep dish as well...as an order of Ravioli for our daughter. The dough was incredible as was the topping. The ravioli was stuffed with 2 types of cheese and was great. Based on our experience we will become regularsMore

Upon entering yesterday, the owner Joe greeted us and treated us like family. He said that all of the food was cooked fresh and said that he used a wood burning oven for the pizza. We could watch them prepare our food or sit and...enjoy home baked bread with olive oil and cheese. Being hungry we chose the latter. This is a small family owned restaurant that takes pride in what they prepare, cook and serve. The pizza is hand thrown resulting in a slightly irregular size with a crispy, flavorful crust and air pockets that occur while baking. The appetizers were excellent served with a delicious marinara sauce. We did not try the pasta which is probably unfortunate. However, we will be back soon to try it. There many types of pasta and specials with clams, oysters, and other sea food. Service was great, we spent time talking with Joe, and completely enjoyed our meal. We came in the early afternoon when it was not so busy. A very enjoyable dinner.More

We tried this pizza take out while at global brew down the road. It’s very good! The thin crust and sauce were yummy as were the mozz sticks. The prices were decent. Would have again!

Their pizzas are excellent. The crust is good and baked just as it should be. They're not just a pizza joint as they also have pasta, and some less common Sicilian specialties. When it comes to desert, they make good cannoli but the tiramisu is...a hit-and-miss despite following the traditional recipe. I've never been disappointed with a main. I'd recommend a takeout or delivery, because the service is so bad that it's borderline laughable, and it's been that way for a long time. The family that runs and operates the business is nice, but their waiters are mostly idiotic kids with clearly no experience or interest for the service industry.More

This mom and pop Italian couldn't be more humble. At first glance, assuming you even notice it squeezed in a busy strip, it appears to be a random pizza shop. But give it a try - the menu is extensive and everything is made in...their kitchen from scratch. The pizza is great, but the gnocchi is the best I have ever had. Lasagna, chicken parmigiana, etc is all top self. And to top it off, the owners couldn't be more friendly and attentive. We enjoy everything about this place...hopeful they move to a larger location soon!More
