Greatest Restaurant on the Planet

Hello,

My name is John Paul; I'm from the upper Westside of Manhattan, New York City. I am celiac. I do a lot of traveling
for work, I work for a global marketing firm.
I recently discovered the best restaurant on the planet.
It is called Pasta Pomodoro Ristorante Italiano & Catering. The restaurant is located
in South Jersey; in a town called Voorhees. Who would of ever thought that a hidden
treasure like this would be nestled in quaint strip mall.

There website www.pastapomodoronj.com features a gluten free menu, but when I
was seated at our table the host and server mentioned that 80% to 90% of the menu
can be prepared gluten free, “WOW”, not to forget mentioning that besides the offering
of the basic gluten free pasta choices of penne and spaghetti that I noticed on their website,
they also offered gluten free appetizer pierogies, gnocchi, stuff shells, and ravioli. Thank God I
was seated, “WOW – WOW” !!! Unbelievable experience, they really know what they are doing.
I started with gluten free garlic bread. Their marinara sauce should be bottled. Now I know why they named the restaurant Pomodoro. What ever the type of Italian tomato they use is top quality.
Gluten free pizza was my appetizer; soup was chicken pastina (gluten free) and my entrée
was Pollo Maximo with gluten free gnocchi. I had to have dessert, it was recommended earlier,
gluten free strawberry short cake. If you were wondering, I had plenty of left over for the next day.
My friends and family enjoyed themselves also even though they do not have to eat gluten free.

Wish they would open up in Manhattan, but Pasquale told me that my request would be put on the
list. Since many customers asked him already. Pasquale is the chef / owner whom is quiet informative about restrictive dietary needs. He told me his son, whom will be three in June, has
many a food allergies and is deathly allergic to wheat. Worse than having celiac, I don’t feel as bad now about having celiac. He tells me that people from around the globe visit him. Now I see why. Fantastic food: service and ambiance. He makes everyone feel like family.

I noticed on their front window gluten free signage, throughout the restaurant letters and photos
from various customers. Did I mention Pasquale was the winner of the 2007 NFCA Gluten Free Cooking Spree held in Philadelphia, Pa.

I recommend, no I insist everyone visit Pasta Pomodoro !!!
No matter where you live, it is worth it.

Thank you,
John Paul
Manhattan NY
