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.
Have eaten pizza from here twice and had a great experience both times. Every pizza can be made gluten free!! The pizzas are really good and I love that I can try different kinds. They are really careful about cross contamination- I have never gotten sick and I am very sensitive to cross contamination. They have gf garlic bread and pasta on the menu that I have yet to try. Will be back again!
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.
This place was bar far my favorite stop in Boston! Our server was Celiac also and had several recommendations, all of which were fantastic! This place does GF Italian right. Get the gnocchi...you will die and go to Heaven! Word to the wise - make a reservation because it gets busy!
One of the best Italian meals I have ever had. My server has celiac herself, so I felt comfortable with her recommendations. I had a shrimp and scallop pasta dish (GF pasta of course) and it was so good. My gluten eating husband even loved my dish. We will be back!
This place is fantastic. Several types of gf pasta and pizza crust. Also, all their sauces are made to order so there are so many options! I got gf gnocchi with scallops and shrimp in a garlic butter whit wine sauce and it was divine. Definitely going back!!!
My husband and I had two gf pizzas and bruscetta. I was disappointed because per the other reviews on here I was expecting amazing house made crust. They use a frozen pre made pizza crust which is the same exact crust zios uses. It's not horrible just was not the amazing "authentic" vibe you expect for being in little Italy. The pesto sauce was also flavorless. Not worth the money if you're GF.
I lived in the North End for two years in college and came here when I didn’t have Celiacs. Now that I do, I still go back and it’s one of my favorite places to go. The shrimp scampi is unbelievable and I do not get sick! They also have gf pizza which I would like to try next time I go.
Waitress told us that “you came to the right place” went through the menu she said all sauces were gluten free. Well my sister had GF penne alfredo and got violently ill 2 hours later. Clearly glutened by her meal. I think they need a separate menu so they circumvent uneducated servers. Made us miss our concert at the garden! Be 100% careful and talk to the chef.
WOWWWW. I have had celiac for over 5 years, and I have never had gluten free Italian food this good. You can have almost any meal gluten free as they have gluten free pasta, gnocchi, and pizza. I ordered the four baked gnocchi dish and it was the best meal I have ever had! I am very sensitive to gluten and did not get sick. The restaurant is super popular and crowded, so it is great they are so good with gluten free.
Delicious food and knowledgeable staff. GF gnocchi is fantastic and so is the vodka prosciutto pizza! Only downside is that the "garlic bread" they offer costs 8 dollars and is just sliced up GF pizza crust with some garlic on top - not worth the money. Other than that the food is really great
Excellent gluten-free options. Our waitress was very knowledgeable. I had a bowl of pasta fagioli and a GF pizza. This is a 5 star restaurant but I took off one star because of two things: First, there is small print on the menu that said if you share an Entree, each person sharing will be charged $8. There were 5 of us and we were just looking to share a pizza and an appetizer or two. Luckily, I saw that before we ordered and told our waitress we were leaving because of that. She said she would not enforce that rule so we stayed but I thought that was pretty sleezy. the other thing was they got our pizza order wrong. It was supposed to be sausage and green peppers but it came out with sausage and pepperoni. Not a big deal. Pizza was good.
I think this is a very good gluten free option in the North End. I had homemade gluten free gnocchi with carbonara sauce, the gluten free garlic "bread" and broccoli rabe. The gnocchi were delicious. It's so rare to get homemade gf pasta so this was a real treat. The carbonara was good, a little salty and not traditional, as it was made with cream but still quite good. The garlic bread was crunchy and good but I wouldn't necessarily classify it a bread as it was very thin and crisp. It could have used a touch more garlic seasoning but overall it was good. I shared a side of broccoli rape and it was delicious. I didn't experience any cross contamination issues at all. The service was great and I'd likely eat here again while visiting Boston
Great food, and has worked for us in the past - however, not today. We finished our meal about 30 minutes ago and I am currently sitting outside the Park Street T as my wife with celiac disease is sick inside a local shop. If you have celiac disease be sure to emphasize this to the waitress. My wife always does this but for some reason today that didn't get through. There must have been some degree of cross-contamination on the gluten free pizza.
Felt like we had to try out this place given all the reviews. It was good but not amazing. We had the bruschetta that people raved about (it's flatbread pizza crust with chopped tomatoes on top... nothing special). My husband had the GF bolognese pasta and I had the GF pasta in vodka sauce. Both were good but not excellent. There is not a separate menu but they are accommodating and the menu tells you they have GF pasta and pizza. The staff seemed knowledgeable, it's a nice little Italian place in the North End. We would probably go back if we were in the area but not in a rush.
