“It's not what is used to be any more..”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

Tomatina in W.C used to be my family favorite place for casual lunch or dinner for a very long time. Unfortunately in the past year it is not the same any more.I loved their Cesar salad, and always ordered my own build pizza. Lately the salad had shrink and the dressing is more watery and not as flavorful as I remember. The pizza toppings does not have the same selection any more. For example: eggplant ,and goat cheese are not available any more.
The service is disappointing: our waiters took our order and we didn't hear from her until it was time for a check... Our food was ready on the counter and it stayed there for long time so my husband soup was very cold and then he waited again for somebody to take it back to warm it. I will not go back again and will not recommend this place unless it will change back to what it use to be.

“Great food!”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

Went for lunch on a Sunday afternoon after reading reviews from Tripadvisor. Food was very good, loved the gnocchi! We had Chicken Parmigana and Lasagna, no complaints. The dessert sampler was wonderful!!

“A limited menu but very tasty”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

If you want linguine with white clams, this isn't your place, but for piadini (like a pizza inside out), salads, pizza, and other light fare in a lively atmosphere, Tomatina's is hard to beat.

“Great food and great value”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

Always packed. Authentic fresh tomato sauce that makes both the pasta and the pizza sing. Rigatoni is addictive. Salads are fresh. Great value.
