Great deals on snacks and drinks at happy hour. Salads are good as is the soup. The fold over sandwhiches on flatbread, piadine, are giant and demand to be shared. Good flatbread pizza. Seasonal specials vary the menu. Good wine at decent prices. Good for...More

Stopped by Tomatina when we stayed at the Four Points Sheraton across the road. THe food was delicious and the service was very good. The gentleman who helped us gave us free bread to take home and was very helpful.

Very attractive setting and waitpersons who really try hard, but the food just doesn't make the grade. My chicken was way over-cooked. The pasta was average. Easy mall parking.

Restaurant has stopped making their wonderful breadsticks. Dropped my rating from a five to a three. Food is wonderful but it was the breadsticks that set it apart from all the other Italian restaurants in town.

Tomatina is on our regular rotation for dinners. Our favorite thing on the menu is the Caprese Piadine, which is basically a cracker-thin pizza crust spread with pesto and piled with roasted tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and romaine lettuce. You fold it in half and eat...More

Wonderful food and service at this restaurant in Northgate Mall. Pasta and chicken dishes were excellently prepared. The breadsticks are made in house and are to die for. Our waiter, Ricardo, provided prompt efficient service.
