Oh my god - can I live at Samba?? I really mean it! this place is amazing! I am drooling just thinking about it. Anything you get is really good! Paninis are amazing (and after years of being deprived I am just drooling), chicken and steak dishes are wonderful, gnocchi is so worth it, cheese bread and just literally everything!! So Good! and no risk of gluten! I love this place!

They are now a dedicated GF facility! I mean I loved this place before they became one, but now I feel even safer! Food is excellent. Vibe is great. It’s so amazing to go to a restaurant and eat the bread they bring out at the beginning of the meal!!

Samba was one of the best gluten free restaurants that I’ve been to. The only non-gluten free item was the bread, which they of course had the best gluten free bread with cheese. The fried yuca was amazing which usually is made in the same fryer as non-gluten free food. If you’re looking for a Brazilian restaurant with incredible homemade food and amazing drinks go to Samba.

The restaurant is gluten free except for bread to start so make sure you tell them you do not want the bread but do want their gluten free bread. So a great dining experience not having to worry and to be able to prefer any appetizer is amazing.

The entire menu is gluten free. Very creative menu items made with yucca flour. Delicious GF bread. Menu items include GF meat pastries, GF gnocchi, a variety of fish and meat entrees. All GF. I’ve eaten here 3x and have not had any close calls.

My food always comes back GF using my Nima gluten tester and I've never had an issue. Brazilian cheesey bites made of yucca are amazing!!! highly recommend, however, stay away from foods made with the fryer as it's continated. The staff will let you know which meals are safe.

Menu has many gluten free choices. Just be careful as they do NOT have a dedicated fryer. Staff aware about cross contamination.

Delicious lunch! As others said the majority of the menu is gluten free but stay away from the fried stuff since the fryer is shared! Also it's byob :)

A friend and I were passing through Montclair and decided to try this wonderful tiny BYOB. We had no problem with being seated at 5:30 pm on a Friday, although we were told the place would get very busy later. The food was amazing! There were so many gluten free options that choosing took a while. Worth every penny.
