Pomodoro in Brookline Village

Last night, went in for a late-night meal at Pomodoro. Entered around 10:15 and surprisingly, there wasn't a single table open. The hostess said it would be 15 minutes, so we ordered drinks and waited. I had a glass of Vernaccia, which was a good value but very light - kind of grassy.
After a little less than 15 minutes, we were seated. They brought out a couple plates of antipasta - stacked with yummy, salty items. My favorites were the hot peppers, the prosciutto, and the bocconcini.
For an entree, I ordered the steak with agro dolce onions. It was tasty - the cut was a little fatty, but the flavor was very rich - melted blue cheese and balsamic vinegar. I also tried their bolognese sauce and I liked it a lot. We ordered a bottle of Sicilian Nero D'Avola - very drinkable and good to drink with food.
After the meal, they brought out chocolate mousse - chocolatey and bitter like good dark chocolate. Not my style, but it was nice of them to bring it out.
There was no coffee offered after the meal and their addition was abysmal on the bill, but it was late and they corrected the bill quickly. The service was excellent overall - friendly a patient despite the timing.
We'll be back again although I wouldn't say we were overwhelmed. I think we would stop in again and eat at the bar. It would be nice if they added a few other wine options, but I do like that they started with reasonably-priced bottles that go well with their food.
