Smashing Tomato is one of our favorite lunch spots. The wood fired pizza is always well prepared and very tasty. Their tomato basil soup with roasted chicken is delicious. Add a salad and you have a very satisfying meal for two people. The restaurant is clean, the atmosphere is cozy and the staff is attentive. We'll be back.

Probably my favorite pizza in all of Lexington. I can eat an entire large-sized Margarita pizza on my own. Order it 'smashed" every time.

Found this place while making a quick overnight stay in Lexington and not finding any tables quickly available at other places. So glad we found it. Tucked away in a small mall, this place is fantastic. Great pizzas, bread, friendly staff and very good prices. The entire family loved it and were disappointed they are only located in Lexington -... More

Great pizza and affordable prices. My husband and I split the dinner deal with a small artichoke dip and Americano pizza. Very good. Wish we had one of these closer to home. Would definitely go back.

At Smashing Tomato, there are options that allow for vegan meals - pizza without cheese or meat, plant only salads. And all very tasty, too!

This is one of my all time favorites for lunch. Pizza and salad. Pizza very authentic (I lived in Italy). They have a gluten free crust option.

I had the margherita pizza with the spizy sauce and a Caesar salad. It was a great pizza that reminded me of Italy. The food was fresh and fairly quick. The restaurant was clean and well light.

We went for dinner and ordered a Quattro formaggi pizza and the artichoke appetizer. The pizza was ordered with the smash sauce which I found out I didn't care for. The appetizer was great. In general I found the pizza to be about average.

We were late arriving in Lexington, and this place was open until 10. We got there at 9:30, in plenty of time to order and eat, and the restaurant staff were mostly receptive. A busboy, however, clearly wanted us gone, so he kept noisily cleaning up right next to us, wherever members of our party of 4 happened to be.... More
