Heard great things about GF options, but didn’t have that experience. I asked the waiter about GF options and he mentioned GF pasta but when I asked about apps he didn’t know. He told me the meatballs were “probably fine” and when I asked if they’re made with breadcrumbs he said “yeah maybe”. I then ordered Cacio e Pepe with GF pasta and when it came out it was with gnocchi (which was delicious if you like gnocchi, but I didn’t want that). I asked the waiter if I could get it with GF pasta instead and (after several trips to the kitchen) he told me they have penne. It took 15 minutes to get my meal and by that time everyone else was done with theirs. When my dish came the pasta was so undercooked it was inedible. I don’t get how it could take that long and they couldn’t even cook the pasta. Overall, do not recommend for GF options.

I picked this restaurant based on the other reviews but unfortunately had quite a different experience so wanted to warn others. Maybe it was just a waiter who was not aware, but I was told the eggplant parm, and all fried items contained gluten. They could not make many items GF, and I think there was significant cross contamination. They did have gluten free penne and gnocchi. The gnocchi I think are made there, but were on the table displays with regular pasta and tons of regular flour, so I steered clear.

I am not sure why my experience was so different than the others, again could be due to the waiter, but I would not feel comfortable here eating again

Celiac friends, come here. Home made celiac friends gluten free pasta. ~90% of the menu is or can be gf. From what I understand, an owner’s relative has celiac and opened this restuant with that in mind.

Just had dinner here on a beautiful night in the North End. Atmosphere was perfect, service was outstanding and the food was amazing. Most of the menu is gluten free. We had fried zucchini flowers and eggplant parm as appetizers and both were so good! I can’t wait to go back!
