  • 5 star review  Man..... where to begin!? Well to start..... the food was amazing.... it was fresh and tasted delicious. The place was super clean. The service was excellent, the staff members and the owner treated us like family. We just moved to this area, and came to this restaurant to celebrate my daughter's birthday and I can safely say that I know I will be coming back here with my family more. Most importantly...... This by far is one of the best pizza and calzone I ever had, not just in Connecticut, but anywhere (and I consider myself a Pizza critic and a pizza junkie lol) If you are in the area..... eat at this restaurant, you will have your money's worth.

  • 5 star review  Just like dining in Italy. Great service, an emphasis on fresh ingredients and a pride in everything that comes out of the kitchen. The chicken and risotto was juicy tender comfort food goodness.

  • 5 star review  My boyfriend and I went to il Pomod'Oro last week while on vacation in the East Lyme area, to celebrate my birthday. We were blown away! Everything we ordered was amazing - a sausage and broccoli rabe appetizer, pesto gnocchi and steak. Of course we also kept eating bread! They make their own bread and pasta which makes SUCH a huge difference. Makes sense since the chef is from Italy! The only thing better than the food (and wine) was the service. Gerta and team were so kind and accommodating, especially considering all of the new rules with masks and social distancing. We had such a positive experience and we will definitely be back. Highly recommend!
