Gluten Free Italian Food & Pizza, Pizza Como in Clinton, NJ
Kudos to Pizza Como in Clinton, NJ! There is a small Italian restaurant in Clinton, NJ that makes eating gluten free seem normal. I have been gluten free for over a year now, and the one thing I miss the most is going to an Italian Restaurant and eating a great Italian meal. I live in the Pocono Mountains and I commute to work in central New Jersey a few days a week. On my way home, when I am craving good Italian food, I now stop at Pizza Como.
When looking on a gluten free website, for gluten free restaurants near my work and on my way home, I found Pizza Como, in Clinton, NJ. It said they offered gluten free meals and pizza, so I thought I would give them a try. I am glad I did. On my first visit I had gluten free raviolis, they were great. I have been there a few times now and my favorite meal is the gluten free penne vodka, I love it. I also will order the gluten free pizza as take out, even though I know I have to drive over an hour to get home and it will get cold, it is still well worth it. Sometimes I sneak a hot slice in the car.
The restaurant is a family trattoria, pizzeria style when you first walk in and a back dining room with waitress service. It is casual and has a friendly atmosphere. We spoke with the owner one day and he said one of his children’s friends that he played sports with was gluten free. He made the choice to offer him a place to come and still be able to eat pizza. Thank you to everyone at Pizza Como, you guys are great! When you are on a gluten free diet, it really is something special to be able to walk into an Italian Restaurant, sit down at a table, and order a great Italian meal, gluten free. I look forward to many more visits to Pizza Como. Mangia!!!!!!!
