We recently dined here while visiting my parents on Long Island. They chose this restaurant because they heard it had a full GF menu and they wanted my daughter to be happy. We were thrilled, but most especially my daughter who was not limited in any way when it came to appetizers, entrees and dessert. I don't think I have... More

I had not been back since we moved 1.5 years ago. A great place for larger parties during the weekend when we were there. Great food, specialties, and $32 bottles of wine. The rest. was packed on Saturday but we were served quickly and accurately. Great service and food!

What is with that manic annoying young waiter they hired. His screaming, back slapping, and hand shaking carnival act reminds me of some play which I don't want to watch. He was extremely annoying and disruptive. He made a normally peaceful dining experience, unpleasant.

As someone who needs to be gluten-free, it's difficult to find a restaurant that has an extensive gluten-free menu as well as their regular menu. They have a dedicated GF area of the kitchen, and everything comes out with a little GF label, so there's no mistake when it's brought to the table. Many of the foods on the regular... More

Had a wonderful meal with family at Cafe Formaggio. Food was delicious and menu had many many options. It is Italian food and much more. Waiter added special effects to a delightful dining experience. Will go back soon.

I checked Tripadvisor before going out, to find good pizza near our hotel. We decided to go to Café Formaggio. When we pulled into the parking lot, there was valet parking (at lunch!). My husband thought we were going out for a slice. The restaurant was pretty quiet for noon on Thursday. The waiter quickly brought over water & a... More

Went here the night after Christmas with friends and family. Not to crowded, service was a little slow. Could not get a water refill without asking several times. The food itself is good but on the expensive side. A good choice if you eat gluten free.
