Decent Italian fare featuring pastas and pizzas

We were staying just a few blocks away at the Day's Inn Airport and this place was recommended to us by the motel front desk people as the nearest place to get a decent meal. Well, from what we could tell, other than a Subway and a McDonalds along the way, it is the ONLY place to get ANY food... read more

Few days ago I went with 11 of my colleagues to the “Italian Tomato Restaurant”, squeezed in between the major roads toward and from the airport. The location and entrance were easy to miss. As one of my colleagues already mentioned from the style it looked rather like a Mexican/Spanish restaurant than an Italian. The restaurant was almost empty; just... More

Had a business lunch appointment here a while back. We were the first ones to occupy the table when the doors opened. Found 4 or 5 rat droppings on my plate. Decided to only order iced tea for lunch. Won't be back.

We stayed up the road and we're struggling to find somewhere treat, our hotel said to come here. It's easy to find ok it doesn't look amazing from the outside but this usually means food is better and this is very true. We got served very fast and with a smile, we both had pizza this was so so so... More

We stayed up the street from this restaurant for four days and had dinner here three times. The food is great and you get plenty of it. The pasta dishes are to die for. you will take some out with you because the portions are large. A salad and a pizza are also good.

After a busy day working a trade show, we happened upon this unassuming restaurant. Food was absolutely fabulous, I don't remember the last time having a lasagne that good. All handmade pasta, and a wide selection of sauces to choose from. Started with the Insalata Della Casa which had a lot of very fresh feta cheese. My partner had the... More

We found Italian Tomato when looking for a restaurant we could walk to from our hotel. It didn't look like much from the outside. But it was busy inside. And oh, the food! The menu is quite large with many Italian favorites. Portions were huge. And everything was wonderfully flavored.

We were staying at the Hampton Inn by the Airport and there did not appear to be much around within walking distance to dine at, and what was there was in more of an industrial area. Hotel recommended Italian Tomato - we were not expecting much - WOW - to our surprise, staff friendly and attentive, food was wonderful -... More
