While I normally wouldn't drive 2 1/2 to 3 hours for a gluten-free meal, I happenned to be in South Jersey this weekend for a High School Reunion that is a multiple of 5 and ending in a "0." I'd always wanted to try Pasta Pomodoro, since they won a GF cooking contest back in 2007- 2008 that we volunteered at in Philadelphia for a cooking spree. Located in a strip mall in Vorhees, NJ, when I walked into the restaurant, I felt like I was tranported to South Philadelphia - with all that might conjure up for you. Let's just say, they were taking reservations for the Feast of the Seven Fishes for Christmas right now. And I'll bet they fill up, because they were quite busy this past Saturday night. We didn't bother with Pizza or easy gluten-free dishes. My wife had Gnocchi in a creamy garlic sauce with Spinach. My son had Ravioli. I had chicken over pasta. My other son had Spaghetti with meat sauce. Even though only 2 of us eat GF all the time, we went gluten-free for all four of us, so that sharing wouldn't be inhibited. Appetizers and dessert for 4 of us. This was not cheap. But, it's a meal we won't forget anytime soon. So, if you are going to be near Philadelphia or South Jersey any time soon, call ahead and make a reservation. Let them know you're coming to visit them and they'll take care of you.

Pasta Pomodoro -- I'm dreaming about the food from this restaurant, May 07, 2008

The food was wonderful and I was happy to have so many options. The food was so good that I am dreaming about it. I can't wait to go back. They do have a very nice gluten-free menu but from the regular, extensive menu, they could make almost anything gluten and dairy-free. They also had several desserts to choose from. I had pasta with meat sauce and sausage, garlic bread, salad and a brownie. It was all so delicious. The owner spoke with me at length and was so helpful. His son has many food allergies. It was such a wonderful experience and I wish everyone could get a chance to taste the food. I will definetly go out of my way every time I am in the PA/NJ area to get to this restaurant. I'm really glad that you have this website. I've been hoping to find a place to tell people about this restaurant and to find other restaurants when I travel. Thank you!

Greatest Restaurant on the Planet, April 04, 2008

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 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 entre 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
