Lunch at Pomodoro Italian Restaurant

This month’s Lunch Bunch trip took us to Pomodoro Italian Restaurant, located in Tacoma’s historic Proctor District:

3819 N. 26th, Tacoma, WA 98407
(253) 752–1111

Since we try to eat a low-carb diet, I wondered if I would find anything that allowed me to stick to my diet amongst all the pasta and pizza. I was glad to find several appealing salads on the lunch menu. I settled for this one, without the rice noodles:

Pomodoro Signature Salad

Spring mix greens tossed with baked chicken, Mandarin oranges, dried cranberries, gorgonzola, raspberry vinaigrette and topped with rice noodles

Several of my companions had the day’s luncheon special, prawns sauteed in garlic butter served over linguine, and praised it highly.

I also passed on dessert (humble brag), but the three other people with whom I shared a table had the spumoni. This received six thumbs up, plus a few more at adjoining tables. People said it was much richer and creamier than your usual spumoni.

The service was good. My only complaint about this restaurant is that, although small, it’s loud. The four of us at our table had trouble conversing across the table.

I’m looking forward to going back to Pomodoro. They have salted caramel cheesecake on the dessert menu. Since I was so good this time, I intend to splurge next time.
