Not so hidden among the well traversed main street in the west end is the increasingly popular provider of sumptuous Italian fare to titillate the palate, Il Pomodoro Ristorante Pizzeria, which this week Thursday December 15 celebrates its one year anniversary by offering a bevy of popular items for a mere dollar.


The name ‘Pomodoro’ literally means ‘apple of gold’ in Italian, a reference to the colour of the tomato before it becomes fully ripe, and the establishment at 19 Somerset Road has proven itself as precious as expensive metal to its army of customers, prime among these TNN’s very own Trevor Lindsay.


Emphasising quality food, using the finest produce, vegetables, grains, meats and other ingredients, owners Livio Ferigo and Filippo Vianello told of their desire to express gratitude to the community that has allowed measures of success in culinary, entrepreneurial arena.


“It’s been a year since we opened, and the support has been really overwhelming,” said Mr Vianello. “I have no words to describe how grateful I am for the local support.

“It’s finally been one year, and we’re doing this promotion to give thanks to everybody for the support by giving back to the community “And this is why we are having an anniversary party.”


“We put a lot of patience and love into what we do with the ingredients, we believe in quality, so we try to source the best product while still keeping the price very reasonable, which I believe is one of our point of strength.

“Of course, we don’t want to overcharge anybody because we want everybody to come back every day or even once a week and support each other in this way.
“You guys are supporting our business, and we are giving you a great deal so that you can look forward to getting out and eating out often.


Come Thursday the tempo is sure to rise as will many satisfied, stuffed bellies with Filippo and Alessandro offering many customer favourites for the price of $1 all day, into the night, including pizza, garlie knots, chicken wings and more.


“Thursday, December 15 is our anniversary, where we’re going to do a few specials,” continued Mr Vianello. “We’re doing one slice of pizza at $1 per slice, with maybe a limit of three slices per person, because, if people try to more promotion slices we wouldn’t be able to keep up with all the demand.


“Other than that we’ll have garlic knots, which has been very popular as well, at $1 per knot. “We’ll make some fresh cookies as well for $1, and we’re going to do $1 wings all day.

“As well I’m working on a hot chocolate special which hasn’t been finalized yet
“We plan to have this go on all day, starting at around 12 o’clock and finish at 10 o’clock in the evening.”


Those with a taste for good food are encouraged to make it a date and don’t be late for what promises to be a delicious and most heart feast in the west.
