Delectable hand made pasta. Savory cannoli. Heavenly bruschetta. Tempting mozzarella cheese sticks. Rich and delightful chocolate cake. What restaurant boasts one of the largest gluten-free menus in the U.S.? On a recent quest for unusual gluten-free foods, I discovered Pasta Pomodoro’s in Voorhees, NJ. The owner Pasquale Masters prides himself on serving the tastiest gluten-free Italian food outside of Italy itself! Not only that but Pasquale himself spent a good 30 minutes with me and explained the extreme lengths that they go through to avoid cross-contamination.
Pasquale uses a very fine gluten-free rice flour to hand make all of their GF pastas and other breading products. The results of this fine rice flour are astounding. Every gluten-free meal that I sampled tasted like I was eating REAL Italian food with gluten in it, sans the pain and discomfort of course. 90% of their regular menu items are made gluten-free, so it is very easy to find something to eat! Pasta Pomodoro’s is recognized by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) and has the official approval of the NFCA. This means that the entire restaurant staff is extremely well-versed about Celiac and the dangers of cross-contamination.
The menu gives a huge selection to both gluten-free and gluten-ful eaters alike! Pasquale and his staff will also make anything for you gluten-free that you wish, even if it is not on the GF menu.
The next time you have a craving for hand-made delectable Italian food, take a road trip to Pasta Pomodoro in Vorhees, NJ at 700 Haddonfield-Berlin Road and feast upon some of the finest gluten-free food in the U.S. You can call them at 856-782-7430 or visit online at www.pastapomodoronj.com.
