We had a wonderful dinner here. The waiter Giovanni was excellent. The food is very good and the house wine was worth the money. We will go back again soon.

We were invited to a party at Café Formaggio. Nice, clean restaurant. Food was delicious and plentiful and fresh. The wait staff was mostly male...come to think of it, I did not see a waitress. Wait staff was attentive and on the ball. When your beverage finished, they appeared with a refill without the diner asking. If the beverage was... More

Cafe Formaggio has wonderful food with lovely presentation. The service is quick and efficient. The waiters are friendly and professional. They have valet service for your convenience. The only negative is the restaurant can be noisy especially during peak hours.

Really worth a try if you're looking for italian food. Huge menu with lots of traditional and unique italian items. Gluten free menu is huge and they have many choices that you cannot get other places: clalmari, gnocchi, ravioli, etc... Fabulous bread basket. Service very friendly.

Kitchen has a designated gluten free area which has been certified by the Gluten Intolerance Group (GIG), making it safe for Celiacs, like me, without any fear of cross-contamination. I have felt so welcome and "normal" eating here all three times I've attended. Gluten Free menu is almost as long as the regular menu and all GF meals are clearly... More

At 6pm, as a party of four (two of them over 85), we entered the empty restaurant and ordered our food. Sadly, we watched parties larger than ours sit down, order, and leave before we even got our meals. The older ladies' diabetic levels went through the roof! All four entrees came out cold and one order was veal instead... More

Followed reviews and gave the cafe a try for dinner. excellent all the way around, excellent service, great food, and just a nice easy going feel. as a business traveler you sometimes feel like the odd wheel out, not here, the staff takes the time to make you feel like you have been coming in for years

The bar did not offer any draft beers, but several choices of bottled beer. There was a large choice of speciality drinks and a wide choice of martinis. I ordered a white peach lemonade and it was excellent. Once seated to a table, a beautiful basket of breads and cheese was brought to the table. We were looking for New... More
