Finding this restaurant was a life changing experience for us. My husband has not had a decent sandwich or pizza of bread in over a year since being diagnosed celiac. Enter Osteria Divino. Where the girl behind the counter was 100% knowledgable. Where the GF food is prepared separately and arrives on a plate with a sticker labeling it GF. We have had panini, pizza, fried calamari, garlic bread and baked ravioli. Every item was enjoyed by the GF and non GF eaters. We will be exclusively patronizing this restaurant so all family members can enjoy it. Highly highly highly recommend!!!
Great service & great food. Sat at the bar, had a Red Bridge, GF Pizza & GF wings as an app. Would defiantly recommend. They understood cross contamination & the Mgr brought out my food, managing my order through the cooking process.
Celiac can eat here. They have a separate menu and know what you're asking if you say gluten free and need it prepared on a counter far from the bread.
Unfortunately, the food isn't amazing. Its ok for what it is, fast food BBQ.
There are only two entrees a celiac can have, and there was a lot of confusion between the staff. The only dishes are the fried catfish and shrimp and grits. No apps, maybe a couple salads without bread.
The staff had a list of gluten free items, and it was short. One thought the catfish was fried in the same fryer as other foods, the other was confident is was separate. She was convincing and said all the items on the plate, catfish, jalapeno grits, and collard greens, were prepared and stored separately. I'm a little skeptical, as the fried chicken comes with greens and I can't imagine they have a whole separate station just for two entrees.
I haven't had any ill effects. Will update if I do.
Two stars because the meal and cocktails were absolutely delicious and the staff was friendly, if only somewhat informed.

I ate at this location a couple of weeks ago. They have a dedicated fryer and were very careful not to mix my fries up with the rest of my party. Their allergen menus are available online, are interactive, and suggest alternative selections for gluten free. They assured me that I wouldn't have to worry about cross contamination on the grill either. The gluten free bun, however, was very dry and I took it off my burger. I was very impressed with how well they took care of me.
G/F options were scarce. Salad, steak, a fish and a nachos. The nachos were horrid. Good amount of cheese with a tablespoon of black beans and a teaspoon of prime rib. Worst I have ever had. Good service but we won't go back.
Note: this is called la santisma now. Wow, amazing. I wish we had good like this in Connecticut! We arrived late at night, coming directly from the airport. We were s little unsure if we were in the right place because the outside was dark and sketchy. But we went in and it was packed and the food was amazing. The horchata has pecans and fruit in it. I ordered the pork mole tacos and my husband got a steak burrito, both amazing. And they have a big salsa bar with incredible varieties. The radish and the smoked red sauce were especially good. No problems at all ordering gluten free!
We really enjoyed gf chicken tenders, burger, sweet potato fries and that's a wrap sandwich. Plantain chips were tasteless so I would get sweet potato fries next time as a side. GF and veg friendly, but my husband got a burger he loved. Highly recommend for GF!
