This iconic Hilton Head restaurant is the vision of Savannah native, Charlie Golson.  His interest in the French language and culture took him to Paris in the early 1970s.  After a long stint in the fast-paced hotel kitchens of Washington DC. he was ready to move back closer to home.  He opened a small one-room French bistro in 1982 that showcased the food and culture he loved. He is known for offering the finest ingredients the Lowcountry has to offer with a menu that is handwritten every day.

No longer a small one-room bistro, the restaurant has moved to a spacious location on New Orleans Road.  In true family fashion, Charlie’s children now carry on the tradition.

pomodori 0052


Pomodori is truly an inspired Italian Eatery in the heart of Hilton Head.  Owner and chef Amanda Russ had a grandmother who was a chef in the 1950s at a time when all food was made from scratch.  They never opened a can.  This is the way Amanda believes it should be done.


Her goal is to build a legacy – have it always be there and mean something, a testament to the ingredients, the people, and the path that inspired her to create Pomodori.

Be sure to go there and enjoy the family tradition of great food, great wine, and great company in this quaint Italian restaurant.

Buon Appetito!
