Kids everywhere on weekdays, but very cute kids may i add....
When I was living in the Bay Area, I often visited this Pasta Pomodoro location, because of their friendly servers and comfortable seating in the outdoor area. My friends and I had a great time this last time I visited, the waiter was extremely nice and accommodating. Although if you visit on a weekday evening, you will mostly be surrounded by families with children. We were the only ones sitting outside that didn't have any kids at the table, it makes sense I guess since it is in a suburban area.
Good for a chain restaurant.
Pasta pomodoro is good when you want predictable, "Americanized" Italian food that's better quality than Olive Garden or Macaroni Grille. The foccacia they serve when you sit down is horrible, ice cold, mealy -- don't judge the rest of the meal on that. I don't know why they bother. But the entrees are usually very good, only had one or two poor experiences in the many times I've been there. I like the Ravioli di Zucca.
