we found a lovely little restaurant near the hotel where we were staying overnight. Never did we dream we'd find a place that served organic and locally sourced ingredients for their dishes. It was "Game Night" so we enjoyed a bottle of Benvolio Pinot Grigio...More

Super super thin pizza. Lots of toppings to choose from. Salads were pretty good too. Wish there were more pasta choices - just lasagna.

Decent little pizza place, but not not worth the price. I left "not hungry", but far from full. The wife and I each had our own pizza's, they were tasty, but portion wise felt like a slightly overgrown Pizza Lunchable.

I visited for the first time today. The pizza looked really good but I opted for a blackened chicken salad. I would not recommend the salad. It wasn't bad but was disappointing and I wish I had gotten a pizza. I will try again someday...More

We return to this place as much as any when we want pizza. The pizza is really good - and fast - salads and soups are good and prices are reasonable.

The lasagna and chopped salad at Smashing Tomato is wonderful (so is the pizza) I eat here often. Especially if you're in a hurry and low on funds and want a place where tipping is not required. I've never been disappointed. Great service Great food!

Hands down the best pizza in Lexington. I have been eating at Smashing Tomato for years and the restaurant has continuously impressed me. Their pizzas offer the perfect blend of select ingredients to create well-composed, savory combinations of flavors that offer just enough cheese. Do...More

It is also my understanding that they only serve beer and wine as noted above. It seems they could handle a large party with advance notice . This would be a great place for a large group and the space is open and service... More
