We were there over the weekend, it was good but not great. First our reservation was screwed up, they said resy didn't put it through, but they did have an outside table, literally on the sidewalk. Our waitress was very good, and the service was...great. I got the Italian Feast, which was really good and a large portion. My only complaint, the red sauce very sweet. I would go back, but not before trying some of the other restaurants in Bristol, sorry.More

Food was good as usual. However during a heat wave 90+. Air conditioning was on low, and they opened the doors to supposedly let night air in. 6:30-7:30. It was unbearable. It is a very small restaurant. If the doors were kept shut, no problem....Would have cooled off fast, due to size. However asked for doors to remain shut, got a NO for a response. When we asked waitress to convey message to manager, we’re accused of harassing waitress. Can you believe it! This was of course after we ordered and began eating so couldn’t leave. We hurried and ate our food and left. Would have liked to eat in comfort and enjoy our friends we were with. Instead a rushed meal and no considerations.More

Pomodoro consistently serves some of the best Italian food around. We recently ordered take-out before the holidays, and we were not disappointed. My husband had the lasagna and I had the pasta bolognese, and both meals were excellent. I also was impressed with the safe...set-up for take-out. I highly recommend Pomodoro!More

Although the pizza is excellent, the Italian dishes are outstanding! You can judge an Italian restaurant based on its marinara. Theirs is fantastic and tastes homemade. The clams are so fresh! Everything we had was so authentic and delicious.

Pomodoro is so good I think I'm back eating my Italian Dad's wonderful cooking. The pasta, antipasto, pizza -- it's all outstanding. I recommend getting takeout if possible since the place is tiny (and takeout has been de rigueur during the pandemic). It can be...challenging to get through on the phone to order at times, too. That's just how good the food here is. Excellent.More

We ate outside Thursday, June 25 evening. Everything exceeded expectations from the warm greeting, pleasant table, views from our table, service, dishes. My husband had stuffed veal with pasta & sauce; I had the gnocchi in Pomodoro's excellent marinara sauce; we shared a Caesar salad...to start. Felt like we were in a cafe in Italy as we viewed the pretty neighborhood from our table. Plenty of guest having a good time, & safely 'distanced'. BYOB is a bonus. Great value!More

Sweet little (little) Italian place with outstanding service. I am working my way through the menu have not been disappointed with any items, but the warm and welcoming service sets it apart. Broccoli Rabe is always a part of my order

This is my favorite BYOB restaurant in East Bay. The food and service is top notch. A great small Italian restaurant in the heart of Bristol. The food is outstanding.

Their menu is very extensive for a small and intimate little restaurant. Food was excellent and very reasonably priced. Great atmosphere with wonderful staff. We totally enjoyed our time here and will be back.

Been there a dozen times and it is the best choice around for a delicious Southern Italian meal at a reasonable price. It doesn’t take reservations and only seats about 30, but features excellent service, a variety of tasty offerings, ample servings, and BYOB; it’s...our “go-to” place when we want to escape the kitchen.More

Their eggplant parmesan (as well as their chicken parmesan) is one of the best in the area. Recently a friend suggested the pizza so we tried it. Fabulous. They make an excellent margherita pizza and it has quickly become one of our "go-tos" when hankering...for a pizza. They do not serve alcohol so know-before-you-go.More
