About Pomodoro

Pomodoro is a charming family tratoria in the heart of the Wilderness Village. It is the meeting place of the locals and you will always find it buzzing with activity. The outside terraces offer a front row seat of the village activities which, together with the laid-back atmosphere and great food, makes it the perfect place to while away the hours.

Owner Claudio will warmly welcome you to this restaurant which they have worked so hard to make the best in the Wilderness. Pomodoro Restaurant is very serious about the quality of the food they serve. The pizzas are possibly the best on the Garden Route and the beautiful salads, antipasto, pastas, grills and seafood never fail to satisfy.

All dishes are based on traditional recipes that Werner sourced while travelling through Italy and working on private yachts on the Mediterranean for many years.

A relaxed, warm atmosphere, seriously good Italian food, great wines and friendly service make this one of the best food stops on the Garden Route

Critic’s review

Delicious well-prepared food ranging from breakfast to light meals. A wide range of pizza and pasta makes this restaurant popular with families. Also available is a range of Italian-style grills and fish dishes. For the sweet tooth – do not despair, the desserts are delicious!

Very well thought through wine list with everyday quaffing wines, medium and some very serious wines.

Welcoming, attentive and very hospitable

Street café-style with strong Italian touches and a large outside area to watch the world go by
