We saw a feature on the hand made burrata on the TV and though "we want to eat that "! Conveniently the restaurant is in Melbourne and the bonus is we have never eaten Sardinian cuisine. The restaurant is a lovely sleek space with clean lines. Our waiter was Italian and he recommended some really lovely wines - that was a great compliment to our meal. The burrata was excellent. We followed that with baby goat and an eye fillet. This was an excellent meal and we would definitely eat here again.

"We had such a lovely evening here. Really friendly and helpful staff. The food was fantastic, great pasta and the most wonderful Sicilian fish stew. The pizza's looked terrific too. We will definitely be back to try them.
We also loved the fact that the acoustics were good and we could talk without having to shout. This shouldn't be a big deal but it's a rarity nowadays in many Melbourne restaurants...which are so packed and noisy.
We will definitely be back.

There are plenty of CBD restaurants in Melbourne that claim to have genuine Italian food and without a doubt Pomodoro Sardo is one that ticks all the boxes.
Located in busy Lonsdale Street, the restaurant is haven away from the crowds and with an ambience that brings back memories of Nonna's best dishes, tucked away in some out of the way lane in Cagliari, the menu lives up to it's promises.
The service was exceptional!
Authentic Sardinian food at it's very best!

Just what we needed after a Comedy Festival event. We had a booking for 8.00pm on a Sunday night but arrived early and it wasn't a problem. From the way the placemat becomes the menu you feel like you are at a place that cares.

The bearded waiter strikes just the right note of friendliness and good service. We had a great moscato and a merlot and shared a pepe (potato) pizza. We added olives and with the other flavours it was the best pizza we have had in some time.

The people next to us were savouring their panacotta so we had one too. YUM! My husband was extremely happy with his coffee made by the girl behind the counter.

Trendy, relaxed atmosphere. Would be ideal before going to the theatre especially Her Majesty's. Highly recommended.
