Italian
Over the years I have traveled extensively throughout Italy in search of new ideas, recipes, and great wines to bring back to Three Tomatoes. The source of inspiration continues to be the simple, fresh, healthy and local foods of Trattoria style cooking. Eating in a Trattoria in Italy is like eating with an Italian family. The mood can be relaxed or boisterous, but always friendly. It is a home away from home and a gathering place for friends. I have tried to capture the warmth of the trattoria kitchen with its open fire, the aroma of simmering sauces, roasted meats, grilled fish and pizza baking in our custom built wood fired oven. Our newly revised wine list has been enhanced by selections of distinction and value inspired by attending Vinitaly, Slow Food's Terra Madre and visiting vineyards throughout Italy, Sicily and Sardinia. Three Tomatoes has captured some of the spirit that makes wine, food, and conviviality such an important part of trattoria life.

This is our favorite restaurant in New Hampshire. My wife had pizza and I had calamari. All were excellent. Place became very busy.

The service was chaotic because a crowd arrived all going to a show at the venue next door. At the same time. The food varied from good to very poor. It was 30 minutes until drinks arrived and two of our three entrees arrived but the third came 20 minutes later, and it had an off taste and was not eaten. Our waitress was very professional but we observed others around us that were not, slapping meals down loudly on tables, delivering food to the wrong tables, etc. We will not go there again.

this local spot is a wonderful place for a meal, for lunch, for a late pizza or before a show. don't overlook their house wines (in the "chicken") and thin crust wood oven pizza as well as all the excellent pasta.

We had a party of 8 for dinner before the concert. Our waitress did a great job juggling ours and many other tables so that we had an enjoyable experience and finished in plenty of time for the show! We were all pleased with our food and drinks.

Food was excellent. Service was very good. Variety of food was similarly very good. I "special ordered" Fruiti De Mar with Far Diavalo sauce extra on the side... it was a good batch! (its been a bit variable in the past. You should list that as an actual menu item

We went to have dinner before a show at the Lebanon Opera House, so the trattoria was very busy. We had to wait a little for our food, but our waitress was attentive and helpful. We enjoy the ambiance of sitting outside on the mall. We'll be coming back again soon.

Chicken parmigiana-chicken over cooked, the wait staff seemed to be very short staffed, screaming baby, younger children running around unsupervised by parents.

Always a great time there. Food very good. I had the Shrimp Scampi over linguine and it was delicious. It's not on the menu so I appreciate that they would make it for me. My husband and son both enjoyed the calamari over linguine. They offer bread and garlic dipping oil to start and everyone loved it. The beet and goat cheese salad is very good also.

We were celebrating our 21 wedding anniversary. We were seated by a window which was lovely. At our table we were greeted by a very cheerful young server. I had the chicken parm and my husband a pizza. The location and windows made the experience unique.

Three Tomatoes is the one restaurant in the Upper Valley on which we can rely to provide great food and good service. We've been loving it for decades but would be happy to branch out to other places if they existed. However, in the Lebanon/WRJ/Hanover area they one of only two restaurants that we frequent and the other one has fewer options that we like. Thank you, Three Tomatoes!

Excellent salads with fresh local ingredients, the best pizza by far in the Upper Valley, and a chocolate dessert out of this world. A great place for a casual meal.

We were vacationing in the area. Our hotel recommended 3 Tomatoes! We absolutely loved our meal. So much that we had dinner there both nights that we were staying in Hanover/Lebanon. We will now always measure other restaurants against 3 Tomatoes as the best. We ordered meatballs and sauce with gazpacho to go! We live in WI! It made it home in our cooler for the 2 days that we were travelling! Outstanding food, ambiance and service! Thanks for 2 wonderful meals! We have already told friends in MA and elsewhere about it!

Good service and food this time. It varies. My previous experience was inattentive service (we borrowed water from another table) and mushy pasta. Pizza and salads seem to be the best bet.
