This place is by far my favourete place to eat, i know the owner and i am not leting this man belittle his hard work and effort by a rubbish review, this place has an immense feel to it, you go there and you imeaditly feel like a celebrity, as there is usualy a cupple in every pomodoro's, the food is a his own home made itailen recipes that he has been working on for the last 30 years. i highly recomend going there, I am a big itailen food fan and i have tried his restuarants around the world and i still will go there i also recomend the calzone pizza with there sparkling water it is to die for. The staff there are very pleasent and enjoy a good time.
WARNING – only the “regulars” get good treatment here. I went with my son on Father’s Day - we arrived before 8:00 to ensure that we would have a table for the entertainment, which would start at 9:00. When we arrived, only two other tables were occupied. I was shocked when the waitress told us that we would have to “give up” our table when the entertainment started. I asked to see the manager because the website clearly stated no reservations could be made on Sunday. He told me that the website was wrong and all the tables were booked. I asked him how all those people would know that they could book on Sunday, and he told me they were “regulars”. I explained to him that we had traveled across London, reminded him it was Father’s Day and asked if we could stay for the entertainment. He told me I could leave and turned his back. Will never return – there are so many other restaurants that will treat you better. Choose one of those (unless, of course you like to be treated like we were).
We ate here last Saturday as a group of 10. The food selection is what you'd expect from an Italian restaurant and not that expensive considering the location.
The quality of food and wine was good and fairly priced, service was a little a slow at times but you can forgive this as it gets very busy.
The real attraction with this place is the fact that lots of people are crammed into a small place having a good time eating and listening to live music. The musicians playing when we were there were excellent.
