about us

Welcome to Al Pomodoro, where the vibrant flavors of Italy come to life in the heart of Cambridge! Our story began with a shared vision between two cousins who wanted to create an authentic Italian experience for our customers. We wanted to transport them straight to Italy, immersing them in the warmth and charm of our beloved southern region.

Embracing the traditional family business model that thrives in southern Italy, we set out to recreate that sense of closeness and familiarity at Al Pomodoro. For us, a family business means that 90% of our employees are proud members of our extended family. It's not just a job; it's a labor of love, driven by the passion and expertise that only comes from generations of culinary tradition.

When you step into Al Pomodoro, you will find Umberto, one of our partners, working alongside his talented family members. His mother-in-law is our esteemed head chef, infusing each dish with the authentic flavors of Sicily. His father-in-law expertly crafts our mouthwatering pizzas, ensuring the perfect blend of thin, crispy crust and savory toppings. And let's not forget his wife, who delights our guests with delectable pastries and desserts that will transport you straight to an Italian café.

But it's not just our family who makes Al Pomodoro special. Our team is filled with cousins, relatives, and close friends who share our dedication to providing an exceptional dining experience. We believe that when you walk through our doors, you become a part of our extended family. Our warm and inviting atmosphere, combined with the passion and authenticity that permeates every dish, will make you feel right at home.

At Al Pomodoro, we take pride in using only the freshest ingredients, carefully sourced to bring the true flavors of Sicily to your table. From handcrafted pasta dishes bursting with rich, aromatic sauces to our wood-fired pizzas topped with the finest quality ingredients, every bite tells a story of tradition, love, and authenticity.

Our goal is simple – to create an unforgettable experience for our customers. We want you to savor each bite and feel the genuine warmth and hospitality that Italy is known for. Whether you're enjoying a leisurely lunch, gathering with friends for a hearty dinner, or indulging in a sweet treat, we aim to transport you to our living room, where the aromas and flavors of Sicily come alive.
