Tomatina is a classic Italian restaurant. This is a casual and relaxed Italian neighborhood restaurant. As a sharp contrast to fine Italian dining, this is a place to enjoy a glass of wine and unwind with unpretentious pasta dishes served in hearty portions. Tomatina is designed to appeal to as many people as possible, which is why they carry a vegetarian, gluten-free and children's menu in addition to their regular ones. Each month, Tomatina offers seasonal specials in addition to the normal menu. These offerings have included a chicken apple salad, roasted cauliflower pizza and even a proscuitto and fig piadine. Staples of the menu that guests can always count on are dishes such as the mozzarella and prosciutto sandwich, ravioli di formaggi, mini-hand tossed pizzas and a chicken spaghettini with spinach, parmesan and an onion-tomato broth.

Great for groups! Food and service were both great for our group dining. Appetizers were quite delicious as were our entrees. If any thing could use a step-up it would be the dessert. They were OK, but not as enjoyable as the rest of our meal.

Went for a nice, non-traditional Easter dinner. The food was disappointing - pretty tasteless. My friend asked for "light sauce" on her pasta -- it was swimming in a butter-based sauce when it arrived. She said, "I'd hate to see what regular sauce is." I had shrimp and angel hair pasta -- with tails on so I had to dip into the sauce with my fingers to wrestle the tails off. Strange. Also, (and this seems to be common theme in a lot of Open Table restaurants), people who greet you tell us they don't know how to check us in for an Open Table dine. It's frustrating, because we have to ask (sometimes more than once) before someone can tell us if we are actually checked in, and even then, it's not a response that gives us "warm fuzzies"! This time, we were told a "manager would have to do it (check us in)" - said manager, whomever they were, didn't come and tell us they had done it. When we asked again, the server said she "didn't see anything, so we 'must be' (checked in)." Ooo-kay. Are we or are we not? Seems very disorganized and presents an image of people being untrained and unconcerned about diners' concerns. We've dined at this restaurant before and had very tasty food and great service, this time, our server did fine (with order-taking and bringing food), but the rest of the experience, not so much.

Greeter and manager didn’t know how to answer my question about Open Table check-in. One of four orders was incorrect. Non-plastic straws were not offered.

Thank you for the great service. Our waitress was friendly and very helpful. The food was delicious. Thank you once again. Maybe you can have coupons , which can bring more people in to taste the good food.

Our waitress was efficient, she was knowledgiable of the menu and the ingredients.
The only draw back not at the restaurant but at the table next to us, had a screaming child, you think they would take that child outside to calm them down instead they just let the child scream it off.
