Gluten Free Valentines Day at Mama’s in Oakdale!

If you still are looking for somewhere to go tonight that offers a great gluten-free menu, don’t forget about Mama’s! Last night I had a great Valentines Day dinner at Mama’s in Oakdale.

They are having a GF Valentines day special for $26.99 a person, a Valentine's Day fixed-price package menus: Gluten Free or Regular which can be found by clicking on those links or on their website . The price fixed menu includes choice of gf appetizer (I got the fried zucchini sticks which were Delicious!! (see pic below) , choice of pasta, and choice of entrée. For dessert they have a special of chocolate covered strawberries, as well as all of their regular and gluten-free desserts. John made a wonderful creation of a cannoli cheesecake- which was two layers of cheesecake with cannoli filling in the middle, topped with strawberries and chocolate sauce, flanked with two dollops of chocolate whipped cream (in the pic, it's in a "to-go" tin, because I was so stuffed that I wanted to take the dessert to go- when I took the top off to take the pic, I ended up eating 1/2 of it!). It was absolutely mouth watering, and so decadent- I am a big fan of cannoli’s, and actually ordered the gf cannoli but then luckily the waitress brought over the dessert try just to “show me” the cheesecake cannoli dessert (pic) and persuaded me to order one- thank gosh I did, it was outstanding! I didn’t end up doing the price fixed menu because I always get the same thing when I go to Mama’s, which is the gf Ziti Montanara (pic- also showing the toothpick that they serve all their GF dishes with so you know you got the correct gf dish!)- which is gf ziti, sun dried tomatoes, broccoli and chicken in garlic and oil. It is my all-time favorite gluten-free pasta dish, and I couldn’t go there (especially on the eve of Valentines day and not get my favorite!). I was able to order the fried zucchini sticks as an appetizer even though they were on the “special” price-fix menu. YUMMY!

So, if you’re still looking for a place to take that special gluten-free someone, give Mama’s a call to make a reservation and have a WONDERFUL VALENTINE’S DAY!

And Remember, the Mama's that offers gluten-free is across from the Oakdale LIRR train station! That also makes it very easy to get to if you are coming from NYC if you don't have a car!

I found this web site this afternoon & went to Mama's in Oakdale for dinner. The food is very very good. If you review their menu on their web site, you'll discover at the restaurant that the menu has a few more options than on the web. Tonight I had a pasta dinner for $16.95 which included a salad, glass of house wine, main course, coffee & either cheesecake or cannoli for dessert. You will also be served a slice/slab of gluten free bread.
These specials are available at least Mon-Thu from 4-10pm. Not only was it good value, it was good food too.
