Ate lunch at this place three times. Nice bright place with a good selection on the menu. Appears to have a good following. Offers outside seating.

Had a terrific dinner at the Pomodoro Restaurant. The food is very well prepared and portions are large. I really enjoyed the pasta primavera. Lots of fresh vegies were used. My husband had the pasta alfredo and he enjoyed his meal as well. The restaurant provides both indoor and outdoor seating. It's right across the street from the TRYP Centro... More

Pomodoro is a great little Italian restaurant with that will remind you of being in Italy. The food is good, staff excellent and always full after departing. Try the pizza, pastas and the cold meat appetizer and wash it down with their Sangria! You'll be pleasantly surprised and likely to return.

They moved across the street, and the atmosphere is great! The food is the same high quality, and most old favorites are preserved. "Pizza mediana vegetariano" is still available, though it is no longer on the menu; you just need to ask for it for the best vegetarian pizza in Panama City! The Wine Bar has moved along with it,...

Had dinner here a couple of nights ago. We had just arrived late in Panama and it was close to our hotel. Pasta was good and it was pleasant to sit outside. Good selection of wine by the glass. Good value.

When the gorgonzola salad arrived the dressing was spread on two pieces of sliced bread - none on the shredded lettuce. I sent it back after telling the waiter I wanted the dressing on the lettuce and NOT the bread. A few minutes later someone from the kitchen brings the salad out unchanged. Apparently nobody in the kitchen is physically... More

I have been to the new site a few times, most recently last weekend. THat confirmed my impression - the place seems to have lost its edge. The ambience in the new site is quite different - but could be fine. But the service seems to have got worse, and, although they are still working to the same menu, I... More

We stopped in for a quick drink and appetizers. Food was pretty good, beers were really cold, and service was excellent.

Greatly recommend this place for food. I had spaghetti bolognese and wife had Filet res-a filet steak with pomodora spaghetti. Also received fresh bread with oil and balsamico dip. All very tasty. Service as usual in Panama needs improvement.

Very relaxing Italian restaurant directly across the street from TYRP Wyndham hotel. Busy, but tables available both indoors and out. Never felt rushed and the staff understood our very limited Spanish. They were very patient with us as we ordered. Food and drinks were good.

Thank Debra C
