    1221 Alhambra Boulevard #107, Sacramento, CA 95816

    This is a little place tucked off of Alhambra Blvd, hard to see from the street. It used to be one of my pre-GF haunts, and thought I'd give them a try as Mediterranean/Middle Eastern food has always been a favorite, and a lot of it is naturally GF. Sometimes with any kind of ethnic restaurant, the language barrier can be a challenge in explaining your needs. The server here was absolutely phenomenal, and explicitly understood what gluten is. They offered to change out the tabouli salad for the Greek salad. The server even offered to plate the accompanying pita bread on my son's plate separately so I could try his, too (how thoughtful!). I had a house favorite "chicken Sumac" and it was above reproach. My son had his favorite "Kefka kebab" (also GF) and he loved it, too. The Moroccan mint tea is sublime and goes well with their desserts. My son had his favorite Greek style baklava, but they had an additional kind as well. The Greek style is made by scratch, in-house and he was happy with it. (sadly, this is not GF, but your companions may enjoy). They got us in and out when they knew we were trying to make a movie, leftovers were wrapped for us (I love that!) Oh! And I love hummus, and they were more than happy to sub pita bread for some thin cucumber slices. Even though there is no dedicated GF menu or cooking area, the nature of the cuisine, and staff knowledge was impressive, and I had zero adverse reactions. I highly recomend this place. It's my #2 spot for ME cuisine in Sacramento.

    I had a wonderful experience here. I felt I had a lot of choices, both in apps, entrees, and dessert. the server was extremely knowledgeable and happy to check with kitchen staff. They happily modified a steak sauce to be GF for me, and everything I had was delicious, including the creme Brule dessert. It's on the pricey side ($145.00 for 2, but we had drinks, apps, entrees and dessert). The marina location and gorgeous outdoor seating was stunning. Can walk the river before or after dinner. Definitely a nice date night location. My NON-GF partner also enjoyed. Truly a 100% enjoyable meal out. Again, the service on all points was flawless.

    The gluten-free wraps are pretty good. I'm glad to have a deli option again. They use the "mini" sandwich amounts of fillings, overall making it pretty small. Larger appetites may not be sated by the portion size. All staff has changed gloves, knives and kept my wrap on paper wraps while making it. Some sandwich artists are better at the wraps than others by a large margin.

    I recently tried the GF wrap and it was pretty good. I was forewarned that it only came in "mini" size portions, so I got a sandwich "bowl" and built it myself at the table. The wrap itself wasn't groundbreaking, but it didn't really detract, either. Overall good for having a deli sandwich experience again. Staff was extremely friendly. Changed gloves & was careful about cc. Will come again.

    It's not listed on the menu but they DO have a selection of GF breads for their cheese plates, grilled cheese and panini sandwiches. Very relaxed, sophisticated place featuring regional wines.
