I liked the food, my wife didn't like all of it. Our waiter was a sour puss, like a neutral. I would go back

They have an extensive gluten free menu and bring fresh focaccia to the table. We'v only dined 3 times in last 4 years. But we have take out at least every other month. I'm gluten free, the restaurant is a good distance away. My husband will stop and bring home the best gluten free fried calamari, fried cappellin, calamari arrabiata.... More

We were shown to our table and the waiter gave the menus and wine list to my husband. When he came to ask what we would like to drink, he ignored my question about the wine. When the food came, he asked my husband - avoiding looking at me - if it was all OK. He came over, picked up... More

My husband and I were staying at the Holiday Inn and wanted a restaurant that was close by. Café Formaggio is about a 10 minute walk away and although we didn't have a reservation we had no problem getting a table straight away. We asked to sit away from a table that was celebrating a birthday and was rather noisy... More

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.
