Two walls of windows brighten this intimate second-story restaurant in the heart of Kalaheo, where there's good authentic Italian food at reasonable prices. Begin with a Caesar salad, then proceed directly to the porcini ravioli, cannelloni, manicotti, or multilayer meat lasagna—the chefs' favorite. Other highlights include eggplant or veal parmigiana, chicken cacciatori, and scampi in a garlic, caper, and white wine sauce. It's a place to enjoy a leisurely meal prepared
by two Italian-born brothers.

If you are looking for the "real deal" while living or vacationing on Kauai, Pomodoro's is it! Italy to Kauai, via New Jersey! Tony and Rosario have been around a long time on Kauai and bring the Italian cuisine learned in the old country, via an east coast flare, to your dinner table in a great setting. Intimate, cozy, friendly and simply outstanding food! You will be greeted by Gerri, the real "Jersey housewife" and always fun! What you need to
know first off, is that will not go home disappointed or hungry. You will be rubbing your belly and ready for bed! They are located in the Rainbow Plaza (above a small pizzahut, NOT dominoes)in Kalaheo. My New York Italian opinion of most of the other Italian restaurants on the island.... Is either they are serving overpriced nuovo/gourmet style Italian (that your Italian mother sure wasn't serving at home)or some non Italian guy who supposedly "learned from" some Italian guy and is making an attempt at Italian cuisine. Pomodoro's on the other hand, has that home cooked feel and flavor. And it won't leave you broke, disappointed or hungry in comparison! Freshly made Focaccia bread is the bomb, the deep fried calamari appetizer is great, the four cheese baked penne is awesome, so is the eggplant parm, meatballs, pasta, chicken ect. and the likes; all homeruns. Peroni beer, good wine selection and everything priced reasonably for Kauai. Don't forget the canoli's, tiramisu, expresso and if you're lucky enough, a piece of Gerri's ricotta cheese cake! Go, you won't be disappointed!
