Meditteranean Specials

Tonda is not just about pizza. We do pizza well, don't get us wrong. But we've also always given special care to our less doughy friends. Tonda has a number of new specials on the menu that are perfect for summer. For nibbling, there's Marinated Olives and Baccala Fritters. Refreshing and healthy salads like the Octopus, Tomato, Potato & Olive Salad and the Watercress Salad with Crispy Prosciutto, Avocado & Toasted Walnuts. And for dinner, we're pan searing a Sockeye Salmon with a Roast Parsnip Mash. But one of our very favorites is one of the simplest: Asparagus wrapped in Speck (pictured left), a perfect combination of flavors and textures.
