I have eaten here a few times and the food is always excellent; tasty, hot and plentiful. The restaurant is big and can get busy especially at the weekend. This means it can get quite loud and noisy. This visit I was part of a large party who ate downstairs. The waiting staff served us all quickly and efficiently. Food was well presented and hot, no comprises for a large group. The staff were on call all evening, remained courteous and helpful, happy to join in the banter but still being professional. Well done Team PeM! We had a great time!

Used to be the best restaurant in Eastbourne but see full review for reasons why it’s not anymore in my opinion.
Firstly, a waiter that previously got our order wrong chose to make us feel awkward by firstly pointing our table out whilst I sat there watching him do it. I then smiled as did my mother in law to try and make whole thing less embarrassing to which he deliberately ignored (eye contact given and a dismissive stare).
Secondly, we ordered 2 starters of Bruschetta and we both got about a half a teaspoon worth of mozzarella - beings it cost about a pound for a whole one it seemed extremely stingy when it costs nearly a tenner.
The menu has not changed in 20+ years and we have all got a bit bored now so time to look at different restaurants for a while.
On a positive, the rest of the meals were outstandingly good and rest of staff were fab as always. The manager took time to come and say hello and goodbye.

We were in early Saturday evening, 5:30 before seeing Paul Carrack. The place was heaving but as per previous visits we couldn’t complain about anything. The food is always very good and no matter how busy they are nothing suffers as a consequence. We’ll be back every time we visit Eastbourne!!

In my opinion Pomodoro e Mozzarella is the best restaurant in Eastbourne. It is a spacious very stylish looking restaurant with eating areas on the ground floor & also basement. For me, I don’t like to eat in the basement section, the upstairs is much better. The waiting staff are friendly and always very busy. Over the years I have noticed the same staff which I believe is a good sign of staff wanting to remain in a business. There is a well presented menu with a large selection of dishes - pizzas, fish, meat and vegan. The restaurant is always full when I visit so it is worth booking a table either by phoning or popping in - it isn’t possible on their website. It can be quite noisy with everyone chatting but as the evening draws on, as people leave, it quietens down. In my experience the food has always been delicious especially the zucchini starter. I highly recommend this restaurant and I will return.

Our welcome on arrival could have been a little better, but to be honest, it felt a little bit like we were intruding. We asked if we could sit at the bar to have a drink and were politely told that we could sit at the table, we would be served there. This we did and waited for the rest of our party to arrive.
We had all chosen our meals in advance to make life easier for the staff so this was helpful with the service. The minestrone soup was nice , more like a thick vegetable soup but nice nevertheless. My lasagna was also quite nice. The overall service left a little to be desired, but for a family friendly venue it was fine. I wouldn't put this venue on my list to visit time and time again, but it was ok for one evening

We have been to this restaurant several times before going to the theatre up the road. The experience has never disappointed. Food is always good honest homely italian fare, price is reasonable and service is attentive and friendly, even when it is busy.

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant, offering excellent value for money. Menu is comprehensive, with vegetarian and gluten free options. Staff are professional and welcoming. Very good wine list. If you plan to go on a Saturday evening, I would urge booking first. Pomodoro has a lot of regular customers. On occasions when you don't want to go out, you can order a take-away pizza, which is delicious.

I had a meal with friends at Christmas time and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The set menu was excellent (both quality and value for money) and catered well for our veggie tastes - although there were lots of great meat options for those wanting it too!
The service was attentive and efficient, yet it was relaxed and friendly. All staff members were Italian and this created an authentic experience in the heart of Eastbourne.I will be back and I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting some superb Italian cuisine.

There were seven of us for Dinner. We were starved and came to Pomodoro e Mozzarella because a theatre goer met on the street recommended it to us. He was absolutely right. The food was tasty, flavorful and well presented. The service was attentive and the plates came without delay but without urgency. Just right ! A great night out in Eastbourne.

Good service and good food at a reasonable price..Atmosphere very good although can get very busy at times, but that is an indication of its popularity and how good it is.

Visited on a Friday evening, greeted with a lovely friendly service , great atmosphere , the food had incredible presentation, presentation is key as it sets the tone of the meal. Food came out fairly quickly and was hot and had lots of amazing flavours and textures.
100% recommend this restaurant.

Fantastic again! We came early evening on New Year’s Eve. They were clearly gearing up for a busy evening but were still very attentive to us and the food was excellent as always. Great service, atmosphere and price. Always know what you will get here and that’s why it’s always so well attended. Thank you for a lovely experience again.

Christmas Eve tradition we always join friends here for a post Panto meal. This restaurant won’t win a Michelin Star but never disappoints - service is super friendly, food good quality and atmosphere great. Somewhere you can laugh and joke without fear of upsetting anyone - perfect for families with children.

When another new local restaurant let us down on my wife's 60th Birthday, we came back to one of our favourite restaurants Pomodoro e Mozzarella, to celebrate again and as always, things were perfect. They are welcoming, the service is friendly & efficient and they cater for my no salt diet, without any issue. A sign of a good restaurant is the dishes are freshly cooked. The food, as always was outstanding and the waiters sang "Happy Birthday" to my wife with her desert and presented her with a card and a 10% off voucher for a future meal. This family owned business and their sister restaurant La Locanda Del Duca are a credit to Eastbourne and thank goodness they are located here. They never disappoint you and you can depend on a warm welcome, good service and good food. You cannot ask for anything more.
