    Was so excited to try this place. Not safe for food allergies, they offer a gluten free menu but i still got sick. Its a wonder how a $125 meal restaurant cant figure out gluten free but a place like torchy's tacos can. Food was great, super tasty but not worth the illness it caused. Service could be improved- its a tiny place but we couldnt find our waiter. He never checked on us once, so we kept asking other waiters for things. Disappointing last meal in SAT!

    Yummy food, good wine bar, tucked away hidden gem with lots of character. They have a gluten free menu and much of the regular menu is naturally gluten free or with slight modifications (noted on the gf menu) it is safe. They understand celiac and cross contamination precautions. Very little for gf dessert (ice cream and berries I think it was - I passed on the dessert but recall it was very limited).

    A lot of the menu is already gluten free - server was knowledgable and chef made sure to prepare my food separately. Wonderful riverwalk restaurant, was my favorite when I lived in SA.

    Bella on the River is actually on the Riverwalk and has a very GF friendly staff and kitchen. Owner David Snyder updates his menus (including GF) at least twice a year. They make an amazing eggplant appetizer called Eggplant Josephine that has fried eggplant, shrimp, mozzarella cheese and Hollandaise sauce. We had a celebration meal for the whole GF family. Everyone was happy with their choice.
