A new casual Italian restaurant, Tomatina, has opened in Santa Rosa’s Montgomery Village after months of remodeling. The location is at the former Sea Thai Bistro (which has moved just around the block, still in Montgomery Village)

Former Tra Vigne chef Rogelio Jacinto (who worked with famed Napa chef Michael Chiarello) is behind the chain of eight Bay Area restaurants.

Daily specials and an approachable menu make it family-friendly, though this is far from a pizzeria. Dishes include homemade meatballs and arancini (fried risotto balls filled with cheese), orecchiette carbonara, fettuccine alfredo, salmon piadine (a salad atop a pizza crust), as well as gourmet pizzas and “classic” dishes like spaghetti and chicken parmesan.

2323 Sonoma Ave, Santa Rosa, tomatina.com. Open for dinner, 5-10p.m., lunch service begins March 9.

  1. Can’t wait to try it, and go there soon.

    Is this the same chef who had the Mexican restaurant in Oakmont for a short while? That food was really, really good; the sweet corn tamales were the best.

  2. I’ve eaten at the Tomatina in Alameda and it was exceptionally under-delicious. Not bad, but nothing very special. It reminded me of Pasta Pomodoro, only with more high chairs.
