THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Pomodoro Restaurant Review

: This pasta house offers incredible deals and generous portions. The gnocchi, coated in Gorgonzola sauce and spiked with diced tomato, is better than preparations that cost twice as much. The dozen or so pastas include penne puttanesca (with black and green olives and a slightly spicy tomato sauce); rigatoni with roast chicken, cream, mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes; and spaghetti with calamari, mussels and scallops. The Caesar salad is light on garlic and anchovies, but the big shavings of Parmesan compensate. We like the pasta so much, we forget that they also serve sandwiches.
