WOW... I was a longtime customer from 1989-1993 during my time at UC and had come back to Pomidoris often since those years. So I come to Clifton to pick up a pizza from Adriaticos next door and it took them all of 5 minutes to get a tow truck there to tow my car out of their COMPLETELY EMPTY lot. Now they didn't get my car... but whoever was the dude that told me to watch it I thank him. You need to tell your manager though that seeing as he can't seem to resolve a petty dispute I think I will skip ever eating at Pomidoris again. Any good businessman seeing their lot completely empty and customers next door at Adriaticos needing places to park might consider the economic benefit of making a deal. Compromise it's called. By the way what's with having half the entire parking fenced off? Are you seriously that much of a selfish SOB that your blocking off an entire area? Childish....

I genuinely hate giving a restaurant a bad review, but sometimes it is well called for. I spent over twenty years working in restaurants in the front of the house, most of the time as head waiter. This means not only that I know good service, but also that I am more inclined than many to turn a blind eye to errors if the server is obviously “in the weeds,” or otherwise having a crappy night. I’ve been there, it sucks. I have to speak out concerning my first visit to Pomodori’s this evening. The food was quite tasty, but the service was nothing short of abysmal. A spontaneous dinner out with some friends became a comedy of errors in extremely short order. Sitting around for fifteen minutes waiting for a drink order is a bit excessive, but I’ve dealt with worse and still left a solid 20% as long as the rest of service went well. Such was not to be the case. One reason that a good waiter repeats your order back to you is in order to ensure its accuracy. This is especially true if the table is asking for changes to the dish, or “mods,” as most places call them. Our table had several mods, all of the simplest kind- add chicken, add prosciutto, etc. Nothing subtracted, no drastic rewrites of menu items. One would think that your average college student could get that, right? No. Well over twenty minutes after placing our order the first entree arrived, accompanied by a pizza that turns out to be for a different table. Lonely it was as it sat, unaccompanied, on the broad and empty expanse of our table of six. Another twelve minutes go by. Then four more entrees arrive. One of them is a salad, not the pasta we ordered. It goes back and our party begins to dig in, sharing what is there. If you’re having trouble keeping up that is now four out of the six entrees that are on the table. Additionally, my Alfredo was suspiciously lacking in the chicken I had requested. Absolutely famished at this point I wrote it off and began to dig in. Another fifteen or so minutes go by and the replacement for the salad, the Gorgonzola pizza we originally ordered, arrives. That still leaves us one down, a pizza that had still not arrived. I really should have called a manager over, but morbid curiosity had gotten the better of me I have to admit. I wanted to see just how far the quality of service would actually sink. You see, among the other annoyances the server only came by to refill our drinks once during our entire two hours there, when one of our party motioned to her after prolonged neglect. The entire visit was filled with this sort of thing. The check had to be redone three different times, and it would have been more if I had not decided that my time was worth more than waiting another twenty minutes while a $2.00 addition of chicken got removed. It was the first time in over a decade I left without tipping. (I tip 20% for average service so you can imagine what this took.) I want to close with a comment, so that it is fresh in your mind after reading this: The food, was wonderful. I really enjoyed the items that hit our table. All compliments to the chef, still it would have been nice if there were more resemblance to the items we ordered, but it was great eating nonetheless. Since I’m the new guy, only been in Cincy a year and a half, I’m still trying out restaurants. I have a feeling that despite the great food it will be a long time before I go to Pomodori’s rather than trying something new. Service like that is something you remember.

So after returning quite possibly one of the worst sandwiches I've ever took a bite out of, the manager or owner or whatever is going to say that his eggplant parmasean is "the best sandwich in the city" and stated that people love it and it was the first time someone complained about it. He stated that the eggplant is freshly cut and never frozen. Complete lie. They questioned if my girlfriend (whose order it was) even has eaten eggplant parmasean. We make eggplant parmasean all the time with ghetto Kroger veggies with the most basic of ingredients and our blandest dish was 100x better than this garbage. It was obvious that it was frozen beforehand. Steak hoagie was edible but mediocre at best. Excuses get you nowhere. Avoid this place like the plague... hopefully the much better Adriatico's runs this pathetic excuse of an establishment out of business.

New to Cincy. Looking around at places to eat. Parked my car in Pomodori's EMPTY lot planning on eating there but took a second to walk across the street to look at other restaurants. It took all of 3 or 4 minutes TOPS, and that's stretching it. I never left sight of the store, and turned around to head back. What do I see? them having my car towed. I honestly think the tow guy was eating there or something. Had to pay $50 bucks to get the guy to drop my car. Whole time that older dude with mustache and grey hair you see in all their pics (The owner, maybe?) is standing at the door just watching. Tried to explain that I planned on eating there but got no sympathy. May be delicious food for all I know, but terrible business practices. Their parking lot was empty and I was wondering why, considering the food looked good. Now I have an idea why.

After spending 2 weeks at local hospital we ventured out to try some food other than cafeteria food at hospital we happened upon this pizza place because of the busyness at other restraunts in the UC university area and the parking lot was fairly empty thus this should have been the warning sign we ignored when we shoulda just kept looking because upon walking in and sitting down to a table in a place that only had by the looks of it 8 other customers we sat for nearly 15 minutes without a single serveral ever offering us a menu or drinks nothing twice walked over to our area yet somehow we became invisible...after giving them the 15 minutes we wish we could have back in our lives we got up and walked out...as i walked past the counter at front of restraunt were 2 workers were leaning on counter i said sarcastically thanks for the service and the girl had the nerve to say thanks as we walked on out the door....please listen and save yourselves the time and i actually feel lucky that i didnt get the chance to review the food....never looking this restraunts way again
