My son and I stopped by for an early dinner. We had a dog and baby with us. The weather was nice and we ate outside. We were able to put the dog on the outside of the fence and still be close. We ordered the salmon special. It was fresh and perfectly cooked. I am looking forward to the... More

The college aged kids and I went for a quick dinner, but it took longer because we were sure there were enough servers. They finally waited on us and the food was good. Noisy kids around and not great atmosphere, but typical for Tomatino.

Very good Italian restaurant. Good food, good servers, very busy on a Thursday evening, thus must be a good place to eat.

Delicious, fresh, Italian-inspired California cuisine. My husband says they make the best pizza in all of Alameda (and it's a close second in my book to East End Pizza) and they have tons of Gluten Free options for visiting family members. The salads are interesting and excellent, and their seasonal specials are almost always delicious.

We were visiting friends in the area who took us here for lunch in June 2014. There were 5 of us and everyone loved their meal. Our waiter was very attentive, and helpful with advice and frequent checks to be sure we were happy, had refills, etc. We were catching the ferry to San Francisco after lunch and his prompt... More

Very good, fresh food. Great menu. Got the June special pasta. Everything is very reasonably priced, beers included. Glad we went here before the A's game.

We had dinner on a weeknight. It was a little busy but we were able to be seated right away outside, which turned out to be perfect! It's a nice patio that has a cozy feel. (I'm pretty sure a nice size "baby" Redwood is next to it). My husband got a cheese personal pizza which was tasty and very... More

Great thin crust pizza, and really good salads. Friendly atmosphere, reasonable prices. Fun venue for after the movies at the Alameda Theater.

We have a three year old and a ten week old, so we eat here frequently. It is a beautiful space where we rarely have trouble getting a table. The food is good, not great, but good. My son loves the ravioli with cream sauce and the kids' pizzas, which also make great appetizers. We receive fair service and everyone... More
