Al Pomodoro Family-run Restaurant

Al Pomodoro isn’t just a restaurant; it’s a family tale woven with love for tradition, authentic flavors, and the warmth of Italian hospitality. The story begins in 2019, when Emiliano and Umberto, fueled by a shared dream, embarked on a mission to bring a slice of Sicily to Cambridge shire.

Inspired by Family, Guided by Passion:

Emiliano and Umberto knew the secret ingredient to culinary excellence: family. Their vision resonated with their loved ones, leading Umberto’s mother-in-law, a maestro of traditional recipes, to take the helm as Head Chef. Her husband Antonino, a seasoned pizzaiolo with experience across the globe, joined forces as Head Pizzaiola. Even Emiliano and Umberto’s wives stepped in, transforming Al Pomodoro into a true family haven.

From Homerton Street to Hills Road: A Journey of Growth

The year 2019 saw the first Al Pomodoro blossom on Homerton Street, Cambridge. As their reputation for delectable Italian fare and genuine warmth grew, so did their aspirations. In search of a bigger stage to share their passion, they relocated to 152 Hills Road in 2021.

The Essence Remains: A Constant Commitment to Quality and Family

While the location and scale have evolved, the essence of Al Pomodoro remains unchanged. Their unwavering commitment to exceptional customer service and delivering the authentic flavors of Sicily continues to be their guiding star. Every dish is a testament to their family’s heritage, prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients and cooked with the same love and care that would grace any nonna’s table.

More than just a meal, Al Pomodoro is an invitation to experience the heart of Italy. It’s a place where laughter mingles with the aroma of freshly baked bread, where stories are shared over steaming plates of pasta, and where every bite transports you to the sun-drenched shores of Sicily.
