RIP Anthony Tomassi, a Southend on Sea legendary figure


Junior Blues Co-ordinator
Dec 27, 2007
Reports from BBC Essex this morning, that Anthony Tomassi has died. Originally on the opposite side of the High Street, partially where the Royals now stands, one of my favourite places to eat, from way back when I was young. Used to be a birthday treat to go there, have one of their delicious meals and finish off with a Tomassi's ice-cream sundae.


When I was in my teens, Tomassi's helped us out with a sponsored walk too, where we stopped there for lunch, eating spaghetti bolognaise with chopsticks, for some reason!

In later times, Mr Tomassi and his wife would still often be seen popping into the restaurant or the recently added less formal cafe, passing the time and chatting with old customers.

RIP Mr Tomassi, condolences to his wife, June and the family.
