Nate and his staff are committed to providing the most amazing food at a reasonably price with excellence in customer experience. Living in Toms River it seems we are surrounded by Italian Restaurants. Hot Tomato is always a certainty for culinary excellence. The ambiance is calm and serene. Bring your own is a major plus. The dedication to delivering the highest quality meal to his customers is certainly Nate's motto. I have recommended this place to everyone I know and have only received "thank you" and "perfect meal" as feed back.

A family favorite, we've been coming here for years and always enjoy great food. Being very picky about our "gravy" this is about as authentic as it gets outside of Sicily. Their bolognese sauce is especially thick and loaded with meat.

The food at Hot Tomato is consistently good.\, portions are generous and the variety of choices is good. Their home made sausage and fusilli is my favorite although we have hade many of the dishes here and enjoyed them all. Small restaurant and hard to get into on weekends but worth the try!! BYOB , so bring your favorite spirit and big appetite!

The food is consistently well prepared, portions are generous and the pricing is moderate. It is fairly close to my home and always a favorite.

I had a delicious eggplant and cappelini dish with hot cherry peppers and my husband had the grouper special, YUM!
