Oro Pomodoro

I poked around on the internet a few weeks ago, looking for a restaurant I’ve never tried before in Rockville. I’m actually not sure how long Oro Pomodoro has been around, but it’s one of the restaurants in the Rockville Town Center area, which has seen quite some development in recent years. I decided to wander in for a lunch one sunny weekend afternoon.

I really liked the interior of the place, which had great high ceilings and a very airy feel. It was a lovely spring day, so the glass wall panels had been opened up to the alfresco dining area in the front. Even though I sat inside, I could still enjoy the pretty weather and nice view.

Of course I had to try their pizza, so my main course was the Margherita, pictured above. I thought it was pretty decent. I wouldn’t say it’s the best in the area, but not too bad!

The rest:

Nice warm bread, complimentary.

Mozzarella with prosciutto and melon, with a shallot basil sauce on the side. Nice little classic mix of salty and sweet. Came with little bits of (somewhat wilted) arugula.

Shrimp, celery, arugula and cannellini bean salad, flavored with olive oil and lemon. My mom order this one, and she seemed to be pleased with it. I’m not a huge fan of shrimp in salads, though.

Fried cured tuna balls mixed with ricotta cheese, parmesan and bread crumbs. These were pretty tasty! Like tuna versions of a brandade.

In all, a pretty good experience, though nothing particularly extraordinary. I’d eat here again, but wouldn’t go out of my way to do so.

OMG, everything looks so tasty!! *___*

Now I’m craving some pizza. :(


Thanks for sharing!
