    Went in for an Anniversary dinner with my husband and had the most amazing meal since going gluten free 2 months prior. Will definitely go back. My husband ate the Gluten Free food too and he loved it. It was a wonderful treat to not have to worry about cross contamination and have delicious, varied options on the menu. I can't wait to go back - the only minus is that it is a bit pricey - but it will be our special occasion go to from now on.

    Excellent restaurant for people who eat gluten free and people who don't. I have Celiacs disease and it can often be anxiety provoking to go out to eat. The owner was really accommodating, super friendly and I wasn't worried about any cross contamination. If I lived closer, I'd go every weekend!

    I love this place. They have a completely separate GF menu. The appetizers and main course we had were excellent. I'm a harsh critic when it comes to food. The bread and dessert we had could have been better but, at least we had options. The staff, specifically Maria, was AMAZING. She suffers from Celiac and explained the menu and everything there for us with such care. I will definitely be going back.

    The best Italian restaurant period, gluten free or not. Family owned and operated, when you are there, you are family too. Maria has celiac and has "gluten free" dinners three or four times a year on Monday nights when the restaurant is closed. The food is served family style and "Pop" make the most amazing dishes ever. You will never know they are gluten free. You also get to meet other people and network information on what items to try and where to get it. Great Restaurant!!!

    I just found out that I have Celiac. Maria, the owner, could see in my face that I was scared and hesitant to start a new diet. She was courteous and explained a lot of things to me. She gave me websites and literature regarding proper care of the disease. I was seated close to her and the staff, and they explained every dish and every process taken to prepare the food. And it tasted AMAZING! I was completely surprised at how good wheat free pasta and bread tasted. I strongly recommend this place.

    I really want to like this place - I gave them three stars because they are really trying. However, I found the gf menu limited and when I asked for pasta dish on "regular" menu but with gluten free pasta they would not accommodate my request. Additionally, the prices are very high. Lastly, we didn't ordered dessert but our server brought a gf creme brûlée because we had a birthday in our party - and then charged us $10 for the dessert we didn't order.

    Excellent food, great service. Maria the chef's daughter greater us at the door and informed us of all the items on the menu that were gluten free. The gluten free muffins were terrific. I took five home with me. We had a gluten free brownie and it was very tasty. Gluten free menu was very extensive and had plenty of options. My non gluten Free friends also really enjoyed their meals.

    WOW what a wonderful experience we had at this restaurant! Not only was the food delicious, but Maria (the daughter of the chef) put together a great gluten free menu, and was very helpful with GF info. My daughter had the chicken parm and pasta from that menu. She loved it! We will definitely go back!

    I'm truely greatful for this family owned business,not only for their scrumptious food but also for their hospitality.Their gluten free menu has a plethora of selections to choose from and you are treated like royalty.I want to thank their establishment for supporting the community especially during our trying time after Hurricane Sandy hit.Not only did they give you extra food,they reduce the prices on items or your total bill.From the dainty daughter Maria,who is the reason for the g.f menu,to the father who prepares the marvelous meals,to mom,the merry maitre' d,to the buddy bartender,and to the waiting waiters/waitresses,collectively they will make you feel like kings,queens,princes,or princesses.

    Just had the best meal since being diagnosed with Celiac... The staff here is very attentive to GF needs. I had the pizza (excellent) and I'm very picky about pizza. The Veal Parm was awesome and for desert, I had pumpkin pie...! Maria was on top of things and made us feel like long time family friends. If you have Celiac, love Italian food and live anywhere near this place, you need to check it out. And finally, no belly ache!
