    Not safe for GF eaters! When I first got to the restaurant, I learned that Lidia's doesn't have a gluten-free menu, but the server can tell you what is gluten-free on the menu. However, when I asked the server about what was gluten-free, that's when the trouble started. Her first response was "well, everything on the menu is gluten-free except for the pasta." To which I started going down the menu listing out the items I knew were not gluten free, including bruscetta, calamari, fried chicken, etc. I ended up ordering mussels and emphasized I wanted no bread on the mussels. When the mussels came, they had a huge piece of bread sitting right on top of all the food. If they were this careless with the things I could tell had gluten in them, I can't imagine how careless they are in the kitchen with cross-contamination.
