One of my favorite places to eat!

I love pizza of all kinds but brick oven is my favorite, and Smashing Tomato is one of my favorite places to eat. If you go, do yourself a favor and get the artichoke dip appetizer and a side chopped salad (original). I've never had a bad meal here and it's one of the few places I always order a... read more

My family and I are at this Smashing Tomato for lunch today and loved it. I had the 1/2 Caesar salad with the Parma single pizza and my wife had a sandwich. The location is very clean and the staff are helpful.

This is how I remember pizza from when I lived in Italy. Stone fire baked. They have thin crispy crusts and fresh toppings

Smashing Tomato is great! The restaurant is bright and clean . Staff is very friendly. The pizza is wonderful. Not the typical pizza crust. Light and chewy, great sauces, fresh toppings. The only downside was the artichoke dip. Not enough artichoke, soupy. I will definitely go again

We have been here a few times and we really enjoy it. Their pizza is really good, and their sheet music bread is one of my favorites. It is relatively affordable and the food is fresh and made right out in the open. I would recommend this place for sure.

In all fairness we got it to go and I preferr thin crust ... anyway we wanted to try something new but we wouldn't go back. The pizzas were expensive for what we got .. and the spicey sauce was too spicy for me to eat. They didn't cut the pizza which was very unfortunate since we got it to... More

My kids and I had a good experience. The quality of the ingredients was very high and the staff were very pleasant. my pizza was a little undercooked, but other than that everything was great. I would definitely return and may just ask for my pizza more well done. The manager was excellent and noticed my pouty face and made... More

When you go to get pizza you expect cripsy crust, gooey cheese, and great toppping. The crust was soggy and chewy, the cheese was non-exsistant, and the garlic was left in large cloves. I had a two full cloves of garlic on each slice of my individaul pizza.

Pizza was great, the concept is interesting as this is a place your order, do the leg work place, but all in all, the food was tasty, the salad crisp and cool and the wine was even on special the day we went in! You can choose to eat inside or carry out on to the terrace outside...Hard to beat!... More
