The love for Italian Food


Italian cuisine is a Mediterranean cuisine consisting of the ingredients, recipes and cooking techniques. It is also about the art of creating a meal, love for the ingredients and passion for Italian products. From the quality of the ingredients to the fine wine that complements each flavor of your dish, the entire experience is made up of several key elements that contribute to the goodness of authentic Italian cuisine.


IL Pomodoro is an Italian restaurant, which offers authentic Italian foods. The restaurant was founded towards the end of 2021 and is growing strong. IL Pomodoro offers a variety of foods. With the variety they are offering here is what they had to say;

Our main focus is our pizzas as IL Pomodoro is a pizza restaurant, however, we do offer a variety of other dishes such as pasta (with pasta we offer lasagna, macaroni, spaghetti and ravioli), salads and rosticceria. Under our rosticceria section, we offer different chicken dishes as well as calzone, arancini, rollo, kebabs and French fries. We also offer a selection of vegetarian meals as well! Of course, no menu is complete without a drinks section. For drinks, we offer your standard fizzy drinks such as Coke, Fanta and Sprite. For our alcohols, we offer draft beers and wines (both red and white). If you’re not in the mood for something fizzy, or anything alcoholic we do offer coffee as well. Our menu is kept simple, authentic and affordable to everyone” ~Assistant Manager~

IL Pomodoro offers Italian foods with quality, simplicity, health benefits, affordability, variety and taste. They use the finest and freshest ingredients to create a meal. We all agree that the ingredients used in these Italian recipes are the finest and freshest ingredients that are of amazing quality, whether it’s juicy tomatoes, bread or mozzarella or parmesan, the ingredients are quality. The quality of these ingredients enhances the experience of enjoying an authentic Italian meal.

The beauty of IL Pomodoro is that their dishes are simple. With their simplicity, the focus of their dishes remains on the taste and flavors of each dish. They pay great attention to how each ingredient subtly complements each other without overbearing a dish with too many flavors. 

They also offer the healthiest diets in the world. Meals are cooked with olive oils, as opposed to other cooking fats. Olive oil is considered to be one of the most nutritious as it poses several health benefits too. Additionally, meals are made using fresh produce, from herbs and vegetables to meats. There are no artificial ingredients or processed food, their meals are made from scratch.

And to top it all off, a glass of Italian wine, to pair with your dish, completes your dining experience. When ordering at IL Pomodoro they offer pairing suggestions that will perfectly complement your dish or meal. Some being their in-house wines be it white or red wine there is a variety. 

They also offer the occasional live music at the restaurant, so keep a lookout on that on their Facebook page! You can find them on @il.pomodoro.eastparkmall.
