On a very untypical, chilly, wet Monday night in San Diego, when most nearby restaurants were either closed or fully booked, we were grateful to Pomodoro for managing to find us a table without a reservation. This is a cosy, genuine Italian restaurant with friendly...More

This is a wonderful small place with great atmosphere and wonderful food. The food is authentically Italian- we had caprese salad, the carbonara and a wonderful bottle of wine from Montepulciano. Can't wait for our next visit!
