    This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I don't know if they changed cooks or what but the food isn't nearly as good as it used to be. Yes they have a very extensive gf menu and the staff is well educated about it but the quality of the food is no longer there. Such a shame bc it used to be wonderful!

    This is my family's favorite place in NY. Fantastic service, dedicated GF menu. All the favorites you just can't get anywhere--gluten free kids chicken nuggets!!!

    Delicious food! I love the extensive menu and dessert menu. Unfortunately it's far from where I live so this is definitely a treat. Love that they offer gluten free bread that isn't a piece of udis or Schar brand. Even my gluten eating friend enjoyed it! Hopefully they bring it out to the western part of the island! I have been there on one or 2 occasions where the food was less than optimal (sent it back to be reheated-they were gracious about it and the food came back where it was heated appropriately).

    The Pro's: the GF menu was extensive, the fried calamari was good. They offer gluten free bread. The Con's: The waitstaff was awful, you want gluten free bread? Wait a half hour and you'll get 1 slice. The chairs were hard, the lighting was harsh, the prices don't match the decor. The baked clams were fishy and gross (how can you mess up baked clams?) and the Chicken Marsala pizza was an under-cooked sloppy mess. I would rather pop a frozen gluten free pizza in the oven, than waste my time and money eating here.

    Incredible experience! Owner has been doing GF for about 15 years. Are very careful about x-contamination. Has one of the most extensive menus I've ever seen, and everything was excellent (including the desserts!). Service from all staff was great as well. Highly recommend!!!

    Tried this restaurant because of the good reviews here and it certainly did not disappoint..just about everything on their regular menu was on their gluten free menu as well. the fried calamari was delicious as was my pasta with chicken and veggies..had a nice conversation after our meal with the owner John about the steps they take for not only good food but SAFE food for those such as myself with celiac..i will be going back again and again.

    GF mozzarella sticks and gf cannoli are extremely delicious! One if the few places that serve gf bread when you sit down to eat. The gf chicken parm is great. Eat in or carry out and your tastebuds will thank you.

    This restaurant is phenomenal! Gluten free menu is off the chain! I had mozzarella sticks and pasta chicken Alfredo plus a salad. They even had gluten free garlic bread! Amazing. The lunch portion is huge and will also be my dinner too.

    Mama's has the BEST gluten free menu and the food is delicious! All of the bread is homemade and the pizza crust is awesome. The corn pasta is great! The owner Johnny takes special care of his food and makes sure that his g free menu is delicious. He absolutely knows what he is doing when it comes to g free! I will eat here all the time. I also trust Mama's when it comes to cross contamination issues, I eat here and never have an issue and I am never worried. Try Mama's and you will not be disappointed I promise!

    Seriously this place is FANTASTIC! They are VERY careful with our gluten free food, even if others at the table order off the regular menu. Monday and Tues 4-10 they have a Pasta night - even off the GF menu! includes wine, dessert, salad. everything I have ever had here was great. Kids love the small individual pizzas. Chicken Marsala is wonderful. - tried it at another restaurant and HUGE difference. They really know how to make food taste GREAT. Its not cheap, but not over the top expensive either. you will have enough food for lunch the next day! They also have a LARGE selection of Gluten free desserts, including a 7 layer cake we were very pleased with. They make their own cannolis - so good! Everyone on staff has been friendly and helpful. We used to NEVER eat out since my son is extremely sensitive with ANY gluten contamination,but i feel safe at this place. It has quickly become out GO-TO restaurant. family friendly but also is a nice place for couples.
