Just stopped by on my drive up to Sacramento this weekend and was really sad to hear that Stanislaus is no longer making the 28oz size. Any recommendations for using part of these #10 beasts and storing the rest? My tomato sauces won't be the same without them!

These are truly amazing. Best red sauce tomatoes hands down. Highly addicting.

Figured I need to find a lower cost alternative to Cento San Marzano tomatoes at $6.25 for a 28oz. can. Started with the Tomato Growers Association in Sac, then UC Davis then Stanislaus Foods and finally Sciabica. Bought the last two cases of 28 oz. Alta Cucina plum tomatoes (now only available in one gallon size). Today made my first batch of my sauce and it was just as thick and tasted better than the San Marzano tomatoes. As good if not better than San Marzano and a heck of a lot cheaper. Thanks everyone!

We live in California. I am from the East Coast. I have grown San Marzano, bought the canned DOP versions as well. These Alta Cucina BLOW all others away...no contest. To prove how good these are, I was eating at a very simple trattoria style restaurant in Beverly Hills...nothing fancy, but on a recommendation. I ordered my favorite, Bucatini al Amatriciana. When it is right, for me , there is nothing better. The pasta came, I tasted, and I was immediately transported to Rome, where this recipe originates. I look up, and see one of the staff carrying a case of tomatoes on his shoulder...I thought it looked familiar...upon closer examination it was a case of Alta Cucina.

I've tried lots of tomatoes, some brands highly touted, some the classic San Marzano, and these are hands down my favorite. I sort of don't even want to reveal how good these are in case there's a run on them and I can't get them anymore. I only bought a couple of cans last time and I just couldn't stop eating pasta until all my sauce ran out, it was so good. This time, I bought six and hope that tides me over for a while. I don't know what makes the magic but making sauce from these tomatoes is infinitely better than anything else I've used.

I have been buying Alta Cucina Plum Tomatoes by the case for several years. I first became aware of Sciabica's from an article in a food magazine about a top Italian restaurant in Seattle, that I've been to, that uses these tomatoes and recommends them instead of imported San Marzanos. After my first tomato basil sauce, I understood why. I have not purchased any other brand and I always have a minimum of 1 case in my pantry.

Just made my own tomato sauce last night with two cans of these tomatoes. (I was out of the pasta sauce.) Simmered it for 1½ hours with garlic, basil, and olive oil. Incredible flavor! I'm going back for a case.

I have been ordering these tomatoes for years and will not use any other. The flavor is simply the best. I have even given cans for gifts to family members so they can taste what they are missing.

I've used all brands of imported San Marzano tomatoes along with fresh vine ripe...from my own garden...and NOTHING compares to these. The quality, consistency and flavor are not to be beaten. I have them shipped all the way to Miami...and the Sciabica family are great people to do business with and theirs has been the only olive oil that we use!

I live in NY where a local favorite restaurant revealed this to me as their secret for incredible sauces. Now that I've purchased a case, I don't think I can go back to any other brand...perfect for marinara sauces, soups or any recipe that you want a wonderful tomato freshness. Beats out any top rated brand, imported or otherwise that I've ever tried.

Sweet, ripe and always produces the best sauce of anything else I've used. I won't use any other, and have gotten my Italian family hooked on them as well.

excellent very consistent product. I use for soup, pasta sauce, pizza sauce. in my opinion as good as most if not all "san Marzano" products out there...
