We enjoyed a wonderful evening of excellent Italian food and nice wine selection. Pasta made in-house. This restaurant deserves it "Excellent Award." We arrived late into town and this restaurant was recommended by our hotel. We did not have a reservation and the restaurant was...More

We went with our children to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Waitstaff was inattentive. Water glasses were never refilled. It took forever for the waiter to take our order. Appetizer plates were placed on top of our menus. Really?!? When plates came out they were put...More

Ever since it opened as Toma, this is without a doubt one of the best restaurants in SB. The restaurant is not huge and there are only about 4-5 seats at the bar, so if you walk in expect to sit at the bar or...More

The best grilled octopus I've ever had! Second dish was also good, a short rib with mashed potatoes. Cioppino is spicy but delicious.

As a local who has dined in quite a few classy places, I have to say we found Toma to be more of a tourist trap. Upon a few recommendations online and about town, I made reservations for my husband's birthday dinner for the two...More

Toma is located right on across from the beach. You can look out at the water or focus on the intimate environment inside. The wait staff incredibly friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and "present" without hovering or intruding. The food was wonderful with layers of flavors complementing...More

Hi Issabellel, I'm sorry that I don't know the answer to your question. The manager who is there is great! I'm sure he'll be helpful. His name is Russ.
