Food is cooked to order, making it easier to avoid gluten ingredients. Staff was friendly and the food was tasty. I had pasta with shrimp and scallops-yum!

They had a ton of gluten free options (pastas, sauces, pizzas, GF garlic bread) that were all delicious and they were very careful about our gluten allergies. Very helpful staff.

Had a fig salad which was quite good, pasta with the GF penne. Sauce was great, penne was fine. My husband was very happy with his gluten-full pasta. I did not get sick at all. Would go again.

Several gluten-free pasta and pizza options. Lots of shellfish on the menu so be careful if you have that allergy as well (we do). That being said, the salad and pizza we had was absolutely amazing. No reactions!

We went here for Valentine’s Day after reading so many good reviews. We arrived 10 minutes early and waited outside for 20 to be seated, but I understood it was Valentine’s Day so they were busy. They seemed to be more attentive to the Uber eats drivers than to the people standing in the cold waiting for tables. Once seated, I notified my waitstaff that I had celiac and asked for a gluten free menu. She told me that I can have anything I want and they would substitute the pasta for a gluten free version. This was a little concerning as I know that some things wouldn’t likely be gluten free. There was no further explanation on options, no gluten free menu, and nothing labeled FF on the regular menu. We were not offered the option to order appetizers; the waitress only asked what we wanted for entrees. After ordering, we waited for an hour for our food. In the meantime, I used the restroom and while waiting my turn, I saw a staff member preparing food with her bare hands after shuffling around in a fridge. This made me uncomfortable, especially during an ongoing pandemic. When the food arrived, my food was not marked gluten free and no one stated that it was when they placed it in front of me, further adding to my anxiety. I ordered the chicken Marsala and thankfully, did not get sick. It was tasty but very watery. The chicken was extremely dry and tough. I was never asked if I wanted a refill on my drink and was never asked if we needed anything during the meal. When we were done eating, the waitress asked if we wanted anything else. I asked if they had any gluten free desserts, to which she responded, “we don’t have any desserts.” The bill came and it was over $100 (not including tip) for a mediocre meal with poor service. As I was leaving I noticed that the staff were not even Italian. When I come to the north end, my expectations are high that I get a quality, safe, authentic Italian meal. I will not be returning to this restaurant when so many others offer so much more.

I ordered their gluten free pizza that I had heard only good things about, with peppers and onions. I specified it was an allergy to the server. My food looked and tasted delicious. However, about a half hour later I became violently ill and was sick for the next three days. Will not be returning. Sad because I’ve heard so many good things about this restaurant.

We went here because of the previous reviews. My 6yo Celiac son ordered a gf cheese pizza. I had called ahead and they indicated they did cook the gf pasta on a separate pot and that pizzas were made on a separate tin/foil. We thought our son would get a real mozzarella and basil type pizza and warned him of this, but the pizza just looked like Udi’s. While he didn’t get sick, the food the rest of us had wasn’t amazing for the North End. Maybe if he was older he’d have been given more fresh ingredients on his pizza. We may try again and be more specific next time, but as he didn’t get sick, I’m giving this an ok rating.

This seriously is the best restaurant I have been to, I love it here. They have gf pizza and then gf gnocchi and gf penne made fresh that you can add whatever sauce you want to. I’m unsure on their cross contamination but I have celiac and have never gotten sick from this place.

Food was delicious. Had a reservation and waited about ten minutes. Well worth it. Service was fantastic. Waitress very knowledgeable. Had the gnocchi and it was delish. I did not get sick.

NO STARS GIVEN. Such rude waiting staff. Their garlic bread was a plain gf crust with garlic sprinkled on it. We moved our table, after asking the wait staff, because we had been bitten twice within 5 minutes of being seated with dirty dish buckets. A different waitress came to us and was blaming us for moving. The hostess then came down and continued to complain to us that we were messing up their night. They wanted us to move back to the table we were being hit at, so we left. The garlic bread was trash, didn’t bother to stay to try the rest. Do not recommend.

As far as food goes, I got gnocchi in an Alfredo sauce and I absolutely devoured it. Plus they have gf garlic bread (although it’s just pizza crust and not “bread” but I still liked it). The only thing I didn’t like was that I would say is don’t sit downstairs like we did since it has a weird smell down there.

Besides being crowded and most of the people there being rude, the server I had was nice and knowledgeable about the GF options. BUT, it didn’t taste good. The pasta was basic GF pasta, nothing special, and the gluten free pizza was on a frozen crust, but it really didn’t taste good. Nothing to write home about. I was very disappointed.
