Pomodori's is known for their pizza, which is great, but I always order the pine-nut-and-pesto pasta, yum! It's a fun, casual atmosphere where lots of students congregate - but even us older folks don't feel out of place there!

It's been a while since we've been to Pomodori's and back in the day it was one of the best. There is a lot of competition now in the area so maybe that's why the quality has decreased. On the positive side, the service was excellent. The food was disappointing and I thought even Little Caeser's pizza might be better.... More

I was a little nervous coming here based on some of the bad reviews, but my sister used to eat here all the time in her college days and assured me it was good. Well, she was right! I ordered the Roma Pizza and she got the one with figs and prosciutto and we shared the apple pizza for dessert.... More

The wood fired pizzas are really good. However, the service was atrocious. The server took our drink order without writing anything down. He got it wrong then had to come back for clarification. The drinks were just sodas and iced teas. It was around ten minutes before we got our drinks. He then took our food order without writing anything... More

We arrived at 6:15 because we had an 8 o'clock show at the Conservatory nearby. One hour later we didn't have our pizzas although people who arrived later were served. We finally had to leave although they boxed our pizzas for us--and got the orders wrong. We paid although we should not have been charged but we'll never go back.... More

Let me start by saying that my husband and I have been coming here for over 20 years and had always loved it! About a year ago, we went again as usual and the service was really bad. We waited until just last night to go back, hoping it would be better and restore our faith in this restaurant that... More

Our food was good but the service was.. bizarre. First, we walked in and about 3 employees completely ignored us. I asked an older gray-haired gentleman (I got the owner/manager vibe from him) if we should seat ourselves. He rolled his eyes and said, "No, there are plenty of people around here to help you, they are just trying to... More

Celebrated Birthdays this past May (total of 6 people). Great service and food. Wide variety of beer and wine to choose from. Fresh ingredients, very tasty. Pizzas are the best deal (you will go home with left overs). Appetizers (cheesy garlic bread sticks) were a perfect touch to go along with a glass of red wine. You can click on... More

My husband & I recently visited Cincinnati after having moved away 15 years ago. When we were students at UC, “Pomi’s” was our favorite restaurant. I am happy to report that nothing has changed in that time. The copper-topped tables, the décor, and most importantly, the wood-fired pizzas are EXACTLY the same as they were then. The crispy wood-fired crust... More

Can be wonderful, can be just so-so. Brick oven pizza can be terrific but often lacking toppings volume.
