My meal was cold when I got to eat it made worse by the fans overhead. 4 of us ate the same thing but the portions and amount of sauces for the pasta sides were inconsistent. My dessert was inedible tonight but was wonderful the 3 previous times. They are paying too much attention to the new cocktails so the... More

My friends and I just love eating at Tomatina's! Monday through Friday, there is a special lunch pairing that is priced reasonably. The pastas and pizzas are delicious. The steak piadine is a favorite of my teenagers. Try the garlic rolls-a "splurge on carbs" but worth the calories:) The tiramisu is mouth-watering light and yummy.

This is another restaurant that fills up quickly at meal times. Arrive early or late. I always order pizza and or a salad and have never been disappointed. The pizzas are think crust and the salads are fresh and dressings excellent. Servers are attentive and check often. It's cozy inside but on warm days I try to eat outside --... More

The restaurant was clean and had a great atmosphere. All though a chilly evening they were well prepared with outdoor heaters that kept the patio amply warm. Restaurant was busy inside and out but we still got a table fairly quickly. We ordered a pesto chicken pizza and it came pretty quickly. It was made with fresh ingredients and tasty.... More

I ordered poorly here, getting the Steak Piadine. The Piadine was good, but hard to eat and was too much lettuce. I was with a large group of people however, and everyone loved their dishes. I sampled the Fettucini off my daughters plate, the Chicken Parmesagne from my boys plate, and the lasagna from a buddys plate. All of those... More

Came to Tomatina for a Friday business lunch. They have some outdoor seating but we were too hungry to wait for that. They kitchen is open to all the tables which makes the place feel cozy. The staff was very friendly and easily dealt with our special orders. The lunch specials were a nice size and came quickly. I really... More

I ordered one of their specialty items: a Piadine. Mine was a caesar. Basically a very thin wood-fired crust with caesar salad on top.Really delicious. I added anchovies which were ok but not the very best. The wine was expensive. Been here before and will go again because of the food and sneak in my own wine maybe.

The food here is amazing! Affordable, fresh and very tasty. Service was fast, staff was friendly and is located in a very cute part of town. The decor is very sleek and romantic. The bruchetta is unlike any I've ever had with notes of sweetness from the freshly roasted tomato to the natural saltiness of the fresh mozzarella. I had... More

Went to this restaurant as me and my sisters were craving for Italian food (Pasta). It was a decent meal for a decent price, I love their Strawberry Lemonade. Their Shrimp Risotto was okay, not great but not bad. Could use a lil more salt and sauce, the one they served me was a bit on the dry side. Overall... More
