This is some of the best pizza in Northern Va. do yourself a favor and stop feeding yourself the overly sweet, too doughy chain pizza and come home to real NY style pizza. The crust is crispy on the outside, soft on the inside. The sauce is perfect, ingredients fresh and delicious. Cheese is melted perfectly. My 5 year old... More

I have been going to Pomodoro for many years and it is still the best pizza in Northern Va. It is consistently great and reminds me of the pizza places I grew up with in Long Island. If only they had "real" italian ices to top off the meal.

Great NY pizza is hard to find in VA. Pomodoro's does it. We love it! The crust is great, the sauce is great. The employees are friendly and the atmosphere is cozy. We mostly go for the pizza, but also enjoy their salads.

We ate here on a Friday evening, and by the constant crowd, I can see that it's a favorite spot for people in this area. We had a group of 3 and enjoyed pasta, pizza and calzone. I recommend this restaurant for a reasonably priced eat-in Italian diner.

Pomodoro offers the best pizza in northern Virginia. There are other items on the menu and they are OK, but if you not going for Pizza, you can do better elsewhere. I have been eating there every month or two for the past dozen years. I like their pizzas as well or better than those I have had in Rome,... More

It took me a long time to find great Italian food in Fairfax, Virginia, so I struck gold when I found the Pomodoro restaurant. I feel like I am back in New York City when I eat their Pizza, and other excellent made meals. So I am addicted to the restaurant, and will continue to go back. The owners come... More

This restaurant has excellent Italian food. It is owned by three brothers from Brooklyn. The red sauce and bread is homemade. My favorite is their thin crust pizza. The salads are made with the freshest produce I have ever had. The Cesar salad dressing is custom made locally. If you want something that is not on the menu, just ask... More

The Pomodoro in Faifax, Va, is s real dinning in treat of good, well- priced and authentic Italian dishes. Wide variety of pizzas, pastas, salads and many more, but surprisingly no Soups. A delicious Italian tomato soup would be a great dish to start with before enjoying other Pomodoro dishes. Services, hygiene and staff were great with full house restaurant... More

If you step away from the pizza the food can be varying in taste , I have never had anything " bad " but nothing outstanding . On this visit we ordered the veal parmigiana sub and an order of the penne with vodka sauce . An unusual twist on the pasta by adding broccoli and mushrooms was a welcome... More
