    I was so excited by the front and back gluten free menu! I ordered the Pasta Fresco and was not disappointed!

    I came here from out of town, thinking by reading the other reviews that it would be Celiac friendly. However, they cook their GF pastas in the same water as the regular pasta! How is that gluten free?! So glad I asked, or I would have been super sick. As a Celiac who is also vegan and has a nut allergy, literally the only thing I could eat was a side of broccoli. I'd stay away!

    Amazing place! They have a designated gluten free menu from front to back. It was my birthday and they even brought out a gluten free cake for me! Best Italian in Lexington.

    I ordered a side salad with balsamic vinaigrette and Kalamata pasta and enjoyed without symptoms. The waiter confirmed that the pasta is cooked in separate water with a gf strainer.

    We specifically went to Bella Notte because of the positive reviews for Gluten Free options, but while they were kind and helpful, our experience was not good. I made reservations and told them that one of our guests is highly allergic to gluten so they would e prepared. After ordering, the server returned to tell us they had run out of GF pasta. The chef was on the way to Whole Foods to buy more (about a mile or less from the restaurant). That was nice. Did she just want her entree to go? (no...we did not). We would all wait for her entree to be prepared. She ordered the antipasto to hold her over. The food arrived after a considerable wait, and it did taste very good. They did tell us her meal was on the house and we could all have desserts, too. However, about the time we were going to order dessert, she realized she was having a reaction...don't know what caused it. The WF pasta, the preparation, or something else in the dish? We are learning that gluten is hidden in all sorts of products, and the kitchen staff has to check everything. Well, it just takes one bad experience, so Bella Notte will not get another chance with us... Miracle Bakery, on the other hand, is awesome!

    This is my all-time favorite place to go in Lexington for GF dining. They have a large GF pasta menu, and I don't feel like an outcast because I'm GF! I can eat so many things there!

    Bella Notte is my favorite place to go in town. They have a great GF menu, and the staff is wonderful. My personal favorites are their spicy tomato basil soup and chicken marsala. Not to mention their prices are great!
