Pomodoro’s has been continuously serving the Mooresville community since 1991. Blake Dewey acquired Pomodoro’s in 2007 and in the spring of 2010 Pomodoro’s expanded into its larger, new location just off I-77 exit 36. With all that happened in 2020, we thought it time to shake off the old and bring in the new. Thanks to the help of local designer Al Bell the dining room now sports vibrant colors and lighting, oversized vintage prints, and a great upbeat feel. Dividers have been added between tables to help with social distancing and additional outside seating has been added. 

The Food

Pomodoro's specializes in Italian American favorites and authentic Stone-Hearth pizza and baked goods. All pizzas are made by well trained “Pizziolas” (pizza chefs) using their signature sauce, then baked in true stone-hearth ovens to bring out the nutty, toasty flavors in the special wheat flour the dough is made with. Sauces, dough, dressings, desserts and the like are all made in-house daily from the best ingredients available. Their signature Marinara sauce takes most of the day to prepare being made with 2 types of wine, onions, garlic and numerous spices & herbs.  Subtly sweet with well blended flavors it will remind you of the best Italian restaurants in the New York. Meatballs also are made from scratch and many guests say both rival those that their “Nonna” made years ago. 

The Marsala is sweet with wine and velvety smooth on the tongue with a generous swirl of fresh butter. Picattas are tangy and tart, with fresh squeezed lemons, capers & white wine. Zuppa de Pesce is an overflowing bowl of garlicy tomato broth, brimming with assorted seafood over perfectly cooked al dente pasta. While the menu is extensive, all items on the menu share one thing in common, they are made from scratch by true Chefs that know their craft. But what’s a wonderful entrée without a delicious beverage? No worries, the fully stocked bar features all the classics as well as bartender created specialties. Craft beers, exclusively from North Carolina, are on tap with an ever changing selection. The wine list features over 50 wines, predominantly Italian, all affordably priced. With all the selections it might be hard to choose, but don’t worry, they also offer tasting “flights” of craft beers, wines and locally distilled whiskeys! 

The Chef

Michael "Natty" Berridge was born in California and moved to Mooresville at the age of 14. With an interest in history and politics he acquired a degree in criminal justice in 1996. He cut his teeth in the kitchens of several local restaurants before and during college and found a passion for cooking. He soon after opened his own pizzeria at 24 years of age. Chef “Natty”, has been with the Pomodoro’s kitchen team since 2008. When Pomodoro’s moved to its current Mooresville location in 2010, Chef Natty stepped up to the plate and truly took an ownership attitude in his position, and embraced the opportunity to challenge and prove his abilities. 

He has been an invaluable part of growing the Pomodoro’s brand of quality since then. In 2016 Chef Berridge became an operating partner in the company. While he continues to oversee operations in the Mooresville location, his daily responsibilities will be at the new Denver Location. His first priority, “to serve the west side of Lake Norman the same high-quality Italian American foods that have been loved for years in Mooresville”.
