Giuseppe Furio’s heralded Pomodoro is as engaging as it is delicious. The chef hosts regular demonstrations on cooking regional Italian, and his opera nights are the stuff of legend. Of course, so are his homemade pastas, artful presentations, endless lunch specials and fine Italian wines.
Critics Linda and Harold Gray love Pomodoro Ristorante Italiano in Little Italy for its intimacy, but the Southern Italian cuisine, especially dishes like zuppa di pesce Mediterranea or linguine all’ Astice, add to the world-class experience. Pomodoro specializes in cured Italian meats, including bresaola, smoked prosciutto and salami. Try the homemade tiramisu.
