Two friends and I went to Cafe Formaggio for lunch. They had a great lunch menu with quite a few lunch panini and heroes. I had the "padrino" which was chicken with broccoli rabe, mozzarella, and peppers. It was good. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. It was busy while we were there with a large luncheon going on, but we were well taken care of.

Our group of 11 went to celebrate our sons graduation from college. Our waiter was phenomenal! He made suggestions to accommodate our group, large assorted appetizers, share salads, special bananas foster dessert. The menu is vast with many choices to please any palate, and if you are gluten free the menu is incredible! Our drinks were always full and the food portions are so large it is a good idea to share. We made a reservation and even with our large group chatting away, we were in an out within an hour and 15 minutes. We were not in any way rushed and could have stayed, but we were ready to move on with our party.

We went as a group of 7 and ordered a variety of dishes. The three of us closest to each other ordered pasta dishes - frankly mine was dry and the other two did not have enough sauce. Also, CONDIMENTS. When someone asks for crushed red pepper or grated cheese, they should NOT have to be halfway through their meal before it shows up (or that matter someone to ask how things are). To me it is absurd that Italian restaurants do not keep standard Italian condiments on the table. The wine menu was good and those who ordered veal were happy.

gluten free & italian food seem like an oxymoron...but not at cafe formaggio. they have a certified gluten free kitchen and their gf menu is almost a carbon copy of their regular menu, right down to their desserts. not only that, they are so accommodating if you want to make changes to anything. for example, i order their penne e gamberi over zucchini noodles...no problem. we were there last night and our server was lenny, who had helped us before. you don't think he is paying attention, but he is. i also ordered a salad no nuts, dressing on the side. it seemed to be taking a long time and he came over and told us that the chef made my salad with nuts & with dressing so he had them remake it. one thing i was told awhile ago, if your order gf & your food comes out without a gf flag do not eat it and have them remake it. it hasn't happened to me...

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
