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.

Food just ok and expensive. Serving size large. Service was just fair. Water/bread not refilled regularly. Asked for cracked pepper which never came. Valet parking only in the lot.

From the outside, we thought it might have been a run of the mill 30 year old local Italian place. It turned out to be delicious. The calamari was outstanding, both straight up and got style. Excellent veal, meatballs (!!), fish, dessert. Entertains waiter. Will go back in a heartbeat if ever in the area again.

My last review was a good one. Most of the same group of friends liked what they had. This last visit was just the opposite. Two,who ate off the gluten free menu, liked their dishes. The other six of us did not. Salads were pre-prepared and almost frozen. My Veal Sorrentin was tasteless mush. Fish was way over cooked. Mussels,... More
