    A definitely must-have restaurant for Italian meals lovers! This family business prepares their foods with all the deepest love, and you feel like to be in the heart of Italy. The staff is so kind, foods are a lot of taste and made by fresh ingredients. Definitely will visit next time!

    Went to Al Pomodoro for my wife's birthday, with our daughter. Being from southern Italy, I was really interested to see what my wife would think of the food, she loved it. As part of our starter we were served, what my wife's family would call Zeppole, deep-fried dough balls, something we had never seen served in a restaurant before, they were delicious. For our main course, my wife and I had pasta dishes while our daughter had a huge vegan pizza, again, these were all great, although we all struggled to finish them, as the servings were very generous. All in all, a very enjoyable night, thanks to the lovely staff and the quality of the food. We won't hesitate to bring Nonna and Nonno next time. Chris.

    Really loved this restaurant. The staff were really welcoming and attentive. The food was so incredible and completely exceeded expectations - the main courses were pretty big so we couldn’t finish them all but the staff gave us boxes to take home the rest. The champagne sorbet for dessert was incredible, such a perfect balance of flavours. This will definitely become one of our regular dining spots!

    Great food and great service from this lovely little restaurant on the fringes of Cambridge centre. Second time we have visited and the food didn’t disappoint again. The spaghetti and gnocchi were delicious. Had such bad pizza envy when I saw pizzas going to the other tables that we will definitely be back to try out the pizza. Can’t wait. If you are in Cambridge and like Italian food definitely book a table at this restaurant. It is fantastic and some of the best Italian food I have had outside of Italy.

    We had a very good time at ‘Al pomodoro’ yesterday, Umberto and his staff are very kind and the quality of food is excellent! The best (true) Italian restaurant in Cambridge! We felt ourselves as at home, can’t wait to back there after the lockdown. Sure we’ll call them for take away food in these days. Price/Quality food 5 stars, they deserved all the best. Thanks Umberto, Stefano, and all staff of ‘al pomodoro’.

    Best meal I've had in a long time. Fish dishes were superb. Restaurant is small and cosy. Staff efficient and friendly without being intrusive. Not cheap but we'll worth it for the food quality. Highly recommend

    Pleasant setting with warm welcome. We ordered seafood pasta and meatballs. I understand the seafood pasta was fine but the meatballs were extremely salty. I'm not against salt in moderation but this was excessive. I mentioned to staff who nodded and said she would feedback to kitchen. Dessert was fine.

    Great food, quality traditional Italian dishes. Had a gorgeous paccheri with swordfish and eggplant and amazing stuffed squid. The service and atmosphere were excellent. Felt like home! Thanks to the special attitude and friendliness of the owner and the staff my birthday party was better than expected! It's worth it ...

    this is my favorite Italian Restaurant in Cambridge. Food is very good, really close to what you can find in Italy. Last time I went I had to wait to be served, it was on Friday this summer a lot of people inside. This time they were fast and staff is very friendly and available. Prices are good. Sure I'll be back again.

    Today I really felt the atmosphere of the typical Italian Sunday with family thanks to the warm welcome and service of the "Al Pomodoro" family. They have been friendly, polite and quick. The food was really good. We had some starters to share, pasta and pizza and everything was as expected... amazing! I highly recommend it for whoever misses a bit of Italy in his UK life.

    Friendly and passionate staff, an unpretentious and wholly welcoming atmosphere, and we were all in agreement that we've never eaten better Italian food outside of Italy. Will most definitely be returning next time we're back in Cambridge. If you can't decide where to go to eat, go here!
