We ate at Pomodori's, which is a casual dining experience. It's a nice restaurant that features their wood-fired oven prominently. As Ken noted, they have really nice copper topped tables (though he didn't like the chairs).
Their pizza's come with a spicy sauce (so not the traditional Cincinnati sweet pizza sauce). They apply the sauce very lightly, which Tricia also noted had a nice garlic touch. Both Jay, Tricia, and I really liked the artichoke toppings and I noted that the figs were also very good as a topping. Tricia liked the look and taste of the crust. You can have a look at them yourself:

Since the Cincinnati Pizza Quest has already been here once, I've included both the numbers from this trip and our last visit.
|Category||Old Score (March 2010)||New Score (13 September 2011)|
You can see that this time around, the scores were a lower in general. I'll reserve commenting on that until we get a chance to compare more places to just see if the new team tends to rate lower. However, we can look at how I rated it this time versus last.
|Category||Kevin's Old Score (March 2010)||Kevin's New Score (13 September 2011)|
|Overall Taste||Didn't rate...||4.0|
So while some of the numbers changed, there weren't any big swings, except for the Specialty Pizza. However, the first time around we had a bunch of mushrooms on the pizzas, which I don't like. So that may explain it.
Overall, I'm going to say what we said last time. Pomodori's makes a good pizza and is definitely worth a visit!
