Ok, I'm back. Haven't been for a long time because you took away the affordable lunch specials. So glad to see that you brought them back- more choices than before and fair enough prices and combinations. Nothing to complain about here- keeps customer's happy. And is it good? Yes, it's good... not like Mama's but decent enough. Good service as... More

Great place to take my (not so little now) kids. Pizza is yummy. Chopped salad really good and enough to share. Seasonal menu very good and the garlic rolls-so darn great.

I was recently one of a group of five that went to Tomatina for dinner. Although it was a Saturday evening and the place was pretty full, we received fast and very attentive service. Everyone in our group ordered something different, and all were very satisfied with their choices. There were several vegetarian selections to choose from, which was gratifying.... More

Usually drop in for lunch. The lunch specials are especially good. Love their pizzas. They actually make their own creamy mozzarella cheese. Soooo delicious.

Everytime I crave pasta and I'm in Alameda, i come here because the service is always outstanding and the food is consistently good. I love the outdoor patio in the summer, and I always enjoy their pizzas as well.

I am only giving it three stars because my pizza was soggy. I would have taken it home since I didn't finish it but it was too soggy to do so. My date said her salmon was an 8 out of 10. It appeared to be a popular family restaurant, lots of kids present. The atmosphere is very good, the... More

Food is always fresh here. My kids love it. Good family friendly restaurant. Pizza is very good and so are the pastas. Wish they would bring back the bread and tomato dip they once gave all the tables. They give breadsticks now which are good too. Service is usually fast and always friendly.

This used to be one of my favorite places for pizza and a salad. Well, something's happened. Personal pizza with kalamata olives and mushrooms was bad. Pizza was wet and the sauce was bland. Mixed salad was an expensive little pile of mixed green lettuce from Safeway. It was advertised with roquefort cheese, but it had none. And where'd the... More

The pizza here is the best, we had the Carne Combo and I don't even like mushrooms! But this pizza was too good not eat. During our trip we ate here twice and the Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo was even better! You'll love it, I did!
