  • review rating 5  Il Pomod’Oro or “the golden Apple” is a new gem of a restaurant in East Lyme for those clientele who are looking for excellence in dining. One should not miss this stop for lunch or dinner. Our first experience couldn’t have been more enjoyable and satisfying. This family and all employees know how to cater to all who enter to taste their excellent cuisine. We had a special diet diner with us for whom the chef agreed to prepare a dinner for him. It was a success as he ate every bite! Although it was extremely busy, the wait staff was cordial,efficient and accommodating for all of our requests. Our choices were well prepared and served hot and delicious. One will not be disappointed to add this restaurant as “a must to repeat time and time again “ as a favorite. Kudos to the “Golden Apple “ or il Pomod’Oro Restaurant.(p s ... this is translated as a golden tomato because there is no word to describe it in Italian it except apple)

  • review rating 5  The grilled calamari had a perfect taste and texture. Nice alternative to the ubiquitous fried calamari we are used to. But they have fried too if you want it. Had the fluke special as a main course was fantastic with potatoes and broccoli rabe. Atmosphere was casual and relaxing. Service was professional and friendly. Highly recommend.
