I haven't been to the Roosevelt Field Mall in years, but it is nice to know if I am ever shopping there I would actually have a gluten-free lunch option right in the mall. La Bottega's offers gluten-free paninis in their Roosevelt Field Mall location. The Garden City South location (corporate) offers Gluten Free panini, soups and weekly changing gluten-free pasta. The Roslyn location offers all the same as Garden City South, plus Gluten Free Pizza! Other locations such as Floral Park, Long Beach and Roosevelt Field Mall all offer gluten-free panini only as of right now.
La Bottega Italian Gourmet was established in 2003 by Giuseppe & Marisa Ruta who started this panini trend with their first location in Garden City South, New York. Both lovers of traditional Italian cuisine, their dream was to create a store where customers would come, shop for specialty items and enjoy their most cherished Italian food… Panini!
Today La Bottega offers a menu of over 60 Panini, 25 Salads, and a weekly changing menu of dishes inspired by the cuisine in Italy. Growing beyond their expectations there are now 11 La Bottega restaurants, and 1 sister restaurant Caffe Barocco, across Long Island.
