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

My wife and I recently visited Carlsbad, California. It is really a neat city with lots of shops, restaurants, and right on the ocean. 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

Went to this place on a recommendation from a friend for an anniversary dinner. We were met at the door with a smile and were immediately graced with wonderful and attentive service by John. He helped to make the entire stay enjoyable. If our stomachs were large enough we would have tried to eat the entire menu. Try a side... More

I then had the sausage & peppers with a hot & spicy sauce.The sauce was not hot and spicy and the sausage & peppers were just okay. My wife had the scallops with a hot & spicy... More
