Begin your meal at this Melbourne CBD restaurant with some antipasti like the calamari fritti or the buffalo mozzarella with crispy san danielle prosciutto, peas, mint & shaved parmesan. Some tasty main course choices include pizzas loaded with delicious toppings, classic pasta dishes like the spaghetti carbonara, and an array of meat and seafood options. We recommend trying the salmone croccante pelle con brodo (crispy skinned fillet of salmon served with a broth of clams, steamed potato, green beans and pomodoro).
The waitress was very accommodating in giving us our choice of seating. Our family of four enjoyed the Veal Saltimbocca, pumpkin pizza, piccante pizza and carbonara. We had a refreshing Italian-origin Pinot Grigio and beer. The desserts were wonderful. We enjoyed the peach and prossecco sorbet with it's sophisticated flavour and smooth texture, the classic tiramisu had well balanced flavours, and the perfectly creamy pana cotta contrasted with the slightly tart raspberry coulis topping. I would definitely recommend Il Pom for any occasion!
I liked the carbonara and the dessert. Lovely atmosphere. Would go back again
It was lovely food and excellent service. We went for a special mother's day lunch and were not disappointed. The Prawn Pizza was amazing. Highly recommended.
