The sign for Red Tomato Spaghetti House is in English and Chinese, but the menu is straight-up Italian, a nice option for San Gabriel Valley dwellers, says Chandavkl.
OK, so there are a handful of Chinese dishes, like Hainanese chicken, and you can get Japanese tofu pasta if you want it. But farfalle with crab and corn, a special, compares well with a favorite dish at Farfalla, and the owner emphasizes that they make their own sauces. The pasta selection is fairly standard—linguine with clams, fettuccine Alfredo, lasagne, ravioli, spaghetti Bolognese—about 15 choices in all.
Appetizers are a bit more eclectic, but the chicken quesadillas and smoked salmon carpaccio are pretty tasty.
Entrees are $6.95 and $7.95 at lunch, $2 more at dinner; appetizers are $4.95 to $6.95; and the portions are generous.
