POMODORO - Harvard St, Brookline

First time in - unfortunately horrifying experience - i wont even comment in for any side effects (service & decor). I'll solely talk about the product - it is a wanna-be-NO IDENTITY- italian restaurant. Whoever thinks otherwise needs to travel for at least 2 weeks to the motherland and finally understand what italian food stands for.
House Antipasto - a senseless mix of different tastes - for a minute i thought i was in a mexican eatery - literally no identity.
Entress were rushed in - as we were attempting to give this antipasto a chance in life - at some point we had 7 plates in front of us, 3 empty, 1 antipasto, 1 cheap olive oil, 2 entrees on the sides. God forbid you are allowed to DIGEST !!! It is prohibitted by POMODORO's bylaws !!! (NOTE : only 4 tables with peple all in all - no need for such rush & staff confusion).

I wanted so bad to try the pesto linguine i ordered - instead i was served a mix of green beans, potatoes, parseley and the same cheap Cannola white oil. PESTO in case anyone ever wondered comes from BASIL - the georgous flower they sell at HOME DEPOT !!!!

I have never in my life send a plate back - i did this time - pretty much untouched !!!!

And finally we were given the check in a heartbeat as if they truly know what they serve people and wanna make sure customers rightfully dont simply get up and leave :-) !!!!! And the check was forced down our throat as i was finally able to "eat" my final glass of white wine - best side of all of this !!!

If you happen to be around this joint - by chance or simply put bad luck - RUN.... RUN for your life & stomach ! Worst $100 ever spent in my life !!!

ps. better carry lotsa cash on you - or you will be shown the ATM machine accross rudely and right away !
