    Amazing experience, amazing food! From the moment I indicated I was a gluten free customer the staff was on top of things. It was obvious that everyone is trained to handle gf and to make things even better the food is unbelievable. Such a treat to know things were under control and to have so many food options! I just wish I lived closer!!

    Never worry about finding something good to eat, always something new to try. GF mozzarella sticks +1 here as well, so good. Very large portion sizes... Dinner and leftovers. Get whatever you can in Rosa sauce... Worth it. Owner Tom is very polite and personable.

    The gluten-free menu is unbelievable! As everyone says, the mozzarella sticks are to die for - my first in 15 years, and I actually had tears in my eyes. The owner came to our table and explained the history and the gf kitchen. It's a 40-minute drive from home, but I will eat there whenever I can.

    Huge gluten free menu, great staff, my non-gluten free friends are always stealing my mozzarella sticks.

    Pretty awful-the mozzarella sticks were pretty good but other than that, among the worst Italian food I've ever had in my life. Instead of trying to make good food, they just cover huge portions in the most disgusting, jarred-tasting marinara sauce. My meal was practically inedible.

    Wow! Right when the owner heard I was gluten free he came over to my table. He sat down, explained the history of the restaurant and the precautions they take for GF diners, and offered some recommendations. Once the food came he also continued to check on us. All of the food was incredible (I highly recommend the mozzarella sticks)! It was a delicious, worry-free meal, as all of the staff were very knowledgeable about GF needs. The menu is also huge - something for everyone! Definitely worth making the trip. *Side note: I went on a Saturday night and it was very crowded. Reservations are recommended!

    Love this place! The owner is very nice & usually comes out to chat with customers. They have amazing salads, all the pasta is fantastic, I'm not crazy about the pizza crust or bread as far as gluten free ones. They're just alright. The food is fresh, sauces are excellent, good produce & variety. They have a gluten-free dessert menu too, which is rare. Good coffee, chia tea. They also have vegan options for non-dairy cheese, I think Daiya. The staff are great too. All around above par restaurant.

    The food is delicious with a vast menu of gluten free dishes from appetizers, main entrees and desserts. The owner is wonderful, friendly and understands all about having a gluten free kitchen and recreating all the Italian dishes to gluten free. I live in Colorado but found this place last February (2013) when my Mom passed away. My family and friends loved it! Every time I come home to NJ for a visit, you can rest assure I will be eating at Mama's!

    I started a gluten and dairy free diet about 2 and a half months ago, and this was the first time since that eating out was not stressful...in fact, it was the exact opposite. The food was amazing and so was the service. The owner even introduced himself and told us a bit about the restaurant (like that they've been gluten free for 10 years!) Also, I called them today to find out where they get their gluten free dairy free ivory cake from and they not only gave me the name, but told me the address and phone number and the name of the owner. I'm super excited I will have birthday cake this year =D

    They have a huge selection of GF items. All taste great and I go there almost weekly. It's wonderful to eat there as it's worry free. They often provide a sample of another GF dish. Service is impressive.

    Didn't even want to give this place one star. By far the most disgusting food I have ever eaten in my life. Gluten free or not do not here. Dirty. Gf pasta tasted so weird. Way over priced at $20 a dish of inedible food. So very upset and let down. Major waste of $. Even my family that isn't gf was completely disgusted. I felt like someone was playing a joke on us. Mamas yuck :(

    I discovered Mama's Restaurant on gluten free finder, my son has celiac and even though my wife and I frequent Hackettstown for dinner often, we never knew about Mama's. We went tonight for the first time and it was wonderful. My son was in his glory with all the choices on the enormous gluten free menu (mozzarella sticks, onion rings, garlic bread, fried calamari...). In fact we all ordered of the gluten free menu and everything was great. The owner was extremely friendly, he gave us a tour of the entire restaurant, told us all about it, the history and how his family has been running it for generations. Great restaurant, great people, we'll certainly be back.

    This restaurant is great!!! at first, I was a bit disturbed because they didn't offer to seat me right away, but when I was seated, it was great. The food was phenomenal and it appears that everything they offer on the regular menu is on the GF menu.

    Gluten-free menus usually consists of everything I can't eat, They lack knowledge about cross-contamination, And offer plain everything. This experience at Mama's & Cafe Baci Exceeded all of my expectations. The largest gluten-free menu that I Have ever found to include New York City, from Appetizers to dessert everything was top-notch. I travel an hour to get there all the time! Well worth it, Thank you for your care about celiac inflicted people

    Did not like the pizza and even though I specified I was ordering off GF menu, it was a good thing I double checked when I got there because what they made was not GF. I had to wait for them to re do it. They did give me a $5 gift card in compensation but not sure I will go back.
