Excellent little family oriented Italian restaurant. Second time I have been, and enjoyable once again. Very tasty bruschetta and nicely presented insalata mista. Pizza picante and penne al arrabiatta were certainly plenty spicy and very nicely done. Excellent espresso to round it off. Was great for kids last time we came too. Service attentive and friendly. And good value!
The menu was quite versatile and intriguing to read even though i couldn't pronounce half of it.
The service was extraordinary, they are currently doing a christmas deal 3 course set meals. Absolutely amazing for the value. The food was tasty and I almost felt as if they knew I was going to do a review on them, they never gave me a reason to doubt their ability until unfortunately i found a embedded hair in my pizza. I was horrified! and kinda put off to be honest.
I called the waiter, he took away the pizza. Immediately apologising, repeatedly and quickly organised for another pizza to be made. To my suprise when the pizza came, i could swear the size of the pizza increased, haha almost like a bribe. I wasn't complaining yummy. It was the best stonebaked pizza I had eaten.
The prep time, spot on and the dessert was a god send. But by the time we got through the main course we were too stuffed to think about our incredible tirimasui...
a nice place for the entire family...
This isn't fine Italian dining but it's extremely reasonable and I found the food quite appetizing. Thankfully I didn't have any hair in my food though like the previous reviewer!
We opted for the 3 course set menu (not available Friday and Saturday) which is so cheap its hard to believe - £10 including a beer! I had bruschetta pomodoro to start followed by a very tasty lasagne and finished eveything off with tirimisu. As I said, the place isn't top quality but the service is really good and the food is fine.
Have used this place when staying over the weekend. Fellow reviewers have already confirmed my personal opinion of this excellent restaurant. Can recommend the 3-course lunch for £11.40.outstanding!
The very attentive staff cater well for your every need, and still remain smiling!
Eastbourne has a fair few italian restaurants but this one is a cut above the others for both quality of service, value for money and quality of food. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant in town.
A fantastic restaurant. I had White Bait to start, the biggest White Bait I had ever seen, lightly battered with Tartare Sauce and it did not disappoint! I then had the Veal with Parma Ham, again a top drawer dish, absolutely deserves all of its 5 stars!
Always guaranteed a table, though not a very intimate setting. more a good place to take the family. Reasonably priced, there is often some sort of offer in the local paper that is worth taking advantage of - one of the better italians in town though deserts are nothing special and they messed up our order on a couple of occassions.
We love it at Pomodoro; it's better than other so-called 'Italian' restaurants because it serves proper Italian food as well as the usual pizza and pasta that so many places churn out. It's not the cheapest place to eat but they do have a very reasonable 3 course set menu for about £16 for dinner and cheaper if you go at lunchtime. Definitely one of the best places in town to eat out.
I have visited this restaurant quite a few times with my other half, for the particular reason that I am coeliac. Whilst the gluten free range is great (any pizza available with gf base, and gf pasta available with any sauce), we have found that the service here is perfunctory at best. I have stopped coming here, due to unsmiling waiter/waitresses, the tables being too close together, and a long wait for anyone to catch on that you just want the bill. Also, as a couple we find we seem to get a lesser degree of service than a family of four, whose screaming child is apparantly the most adorable thing in the world! Even though the prices are good, we will not be returning, which is a disappointment for us.
