Three Tomatoes Trattoria opened on November 20th, 1990. Over the years I have traveled extensively throughout Italy in search of new ideas, recipes, and great wines to bring back to Three Tomatoes. The source of inspiration continues to be the simple, fresh, healthy and local foods of Trattoria style cooking. Eating in a Trattoria in Italy is like eating with an Italian family. The mood can be relaxed or boisterous, but always friendly. It is a home away from home and a gathering place for friends.
I have tried to capture the warmth of the trattoria kitchen with its open fire, the aroma of simmering sauces, roasted meats, grilled fish and pizza baking in our custom built wood fired oven. Our newly revised wine list has been enhanced by selections of distinction and value inspired by attending Vinitaly, Slow Food's Terra Madre and visiting vineyards throughout Italy, Sicily and Sardinia.
Three Tomatoes has captured some of the spirit that makes wine, food, and conviviality such an important part of trattoria life. Salute and buon appetito!
We have been members of Slow Food International since 1992, and share their philosophy of sustainable agriculture, and the civilization of the table . We continued to support our local farmers and producers through organizations like The Fresh Network and Vital Communities. High quality food is important to us, and sharing the pleasures of thoughtfully prepared food with family and friends has always been central to our idea of running a good restaurant.
As a cornerstone in the community, we feel the need to be involved. We support many non-profit organizations through our Sustainable Communities Calendar where each month a non-profit organization receives a portion of our sales to help with the good work they do in the community. In 2013 Three Tomatoes was voted Lebanon Chamber of Commerce Business of The Year. We are grateful for that honor and look forward to continuing to make Lebanon a great place to live and work.
