We enjoyed another great dinner last night at Il Pomodoro in Somerville! The food was delicious and the service excellent. The owner, John Provost, is very accomodating (i had requested a very specific table), and he's quite charming. We started with raw oysters dressed wtih caviar, and sprinkled with iced vodka (poured at the table), and sweet pistacio encrushed shrimp. The entrees we picked were very very tasty; pork osso bucco with risotto, and medallions of filet with gorgonzola & a light brandy cream sauce. The pork was perfectly cooked, and the beef tender. Dessert was a trio of crembrulee, and a chocolate tartufo // increbile (I've attached pictures) The restaurant is carefully and tastefully decorated, the santa is spruced up, the chairs are set at an angle, and candles everywhere. Still have to try the sister restaurant, Tapastre, downstairs, unique in its own right. Il Pomodoro strives to impress and delight, and doesn't dissapoint. Ummm, delish, can't wait to have my leftovers!! :)
