Real Italian Pizza

This was our first visit and I went on a Monday night and did not realize it was kids night. Great value at 1.99 for pizza and drink. I had the special meatball pizza that was wonderful all cooked fresh in the wooden oven - so good. Very impressed and good value.

The pizza is so fresh and wood fired. My wife and I often split a pizza and salad. Plenty of food. Must try.

The atmosphere was very Italian and very nice. Service was good - you order at the counter. The cashier was very patient and helpful. Pizza and salad were very good. But I will say you really don't get much pizza for the price. $34 for 4 small pizzas and a couple of salads with no drinks and no tip.

My husband and I live about 1 hour away from Lexington but travel there every week to see our midwife and are always on the look out for new eateries to try when we are in town. We read some reviews about Smashing tomato and decided to give it a go. Verdict: it didn't disappoint! It's more like a fast... More

My family enjoys going to Smashing Tomato. The quality of the food is good and it is affordable. The dinner special (large salad and large pizza) is a great deal at only $12.99. The bread that is served warm out of the oven with the salads (called sheet music) is yummy. The pizza is like that served in Italy -... More

We go to Smashing Tomato every time we return to Lexington. The food is good, the staff helpful and the wine cheap. This is a comfortable place to come and relax with a good pizza and tasty salad. The young man told us on Sunday the best deal and we ended up with a pizza , salad and 2 glasses... More

Had a great quick dinner after dropping our youngest off at college. Service was excellent and the food was prepared fast and was delicious. Split a pizza and sandwich and then got an order of sheet music. Plenty of variety on their menu. We will return on future visits.

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... 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.
