My wife and daughters were disappointed with the appetizers that they split. Restaurant was just OK. Not a lot of atmosphere. The bottle of chianti was just OK as well. Average service.

Ordered spicy pizza with their marinara sauce and jalapeños. Wow - hit the spot but not for everyone. Garlic bread too garlicky for me. Good waiter service.

The red wine our waitress... More

We sat outside on a cool evening, but the outdoor heater kept us super warm. Our server was like an old friend, the wine was perfect, and my chicken parmesan was delicious. My husband ordered the chicken marsala and said it was wonderful, and he's Italian!

Really enjoyed our visit here catching up with some friends that live in the area. Our server Stefan took great care of us as we spent a leisurely Friday night outside. Wonderful garlic bread and a nice sauteed calimari appetizer. I enjoyed an eggplant special with a side of fettucine alfredo (a really great alfredo sauce I might add) and... More

We were looking for a place to have a late lunch and came upon the Caldo Pomodoro Restaurant ... Italian cuisine. The place is quaint, but in serious need of a make-over. The food was okay... More
