This restaurant is a comfortable place for dinner, with a very good wine list that doesn't take advantage of the consumer. The food is plentiful,, enough usually for a doggy bag, and its not ala carte. Their sauces really have a home made taste to...More

IL POMODORO is on Gladiolus. Pastabilities on San Carlos and not open for lunch and used to be better when they were in their old location and had the old staff.
