  • review rating 5  My wife and I stopped in for the first time, and were so pleasantly surprised! From the decor, to the staff, to the food, all were awesome! Our home-made pastas were delicious, and my wife loved her special salad of tomatoes, French goat cheese and olive oil. We will definitely return!

  • review rating 5  First timer and best steak I've ever had! Perfectly done, melt in your mouth delicious. Spinach and corn were wonderful and potatoes cooked just right. Waitress was fun, and so accommodating. Everyone so nice. We will be back.

  • review rating 5  My boyfriend & I had an incredible meal here last night! We found it on a whim (looking for someplace that served a burrata appetizer) and were so happy we did. We sat at the bar, and Greta the bartender took amazing care of us. We ordered a bottle of wine and never had to refill our glasses. She went above and beyond to make us feel welcome — like we were old friends going over for dinner. We don’t live nearby but we will definitely be making the hour+ trip to visit this fabulous establishment and Greta again.

  • review rating 5  This past week we had the pleasure of eating at iL Pomod'Oro Restaurant to celebrate our son's graduation from the Coast Guard Academy. We had an outstanding meal with excellent service. Our friends from Charleston and Tampa were overwhelmed with the quality and presentations of the food. This is THE place to eat in Southern CT!

  • review rating 5  Wow! The most amazing pizza. The attention to detail is superb. Highest recommendation when visiting New London, CT. It’s even worth the drive from New York! Heck, it’s worth the drive from Charleston, SC.
