“Great oven baked pizzas!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

They make fresh, delicious pizzas. My face is the white pizzas. Soooo yummy. Good wait staff and a nice place to dine with a fun decor.

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

With all the hype we had heard we were expecting a cozy small restaurant with great homey food. We had to wait forever for a table for four and then felt very squeezed in at the table when we did finally get seated. The food was OK but nothing to rave about.

“Loved their grilled squid”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

While I like fried calamari, grilled is the best way to go. This place was pretty unique and had grilled squid--nice big piece with arugula, excellent combination. They stopped serving that for a while--tell them to bring it back!

“solid little restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Red Tomato is a solid fallback that we eat at at least once a month. While it is not "the best" of restaurants, it has reliably good specials for a decent price and the wood-burning oven pizza is excellent.
