Be careful here. A friend who is also celiac has eaten here several times with no issue and is more sensitive than I am. However, none of the gluten free options are marked on the menu, so you need to discuss options with the server. Like others have said, I was told almost everything is gluten free with the exception of bread items and fried items. The fryer is not dedicated gf as someone else claimed. We were told the mac and cheese was gf without breadcrumbs and asked to verify they could make it with gf pasta. Server checked with the kitchen and said, yes its gf, its made with semolina. Well thats not gluten free. Asked to verify again and we would take it if it could be made gf. It came out and looked like no gf pasta I've ever used. New server, maybe manager, said no way its gf and took it off the bill. That was nice and my non-celiac friend said it was fantastic. I had the buratta and fig which was good and a bowl of soup that was super salty. They said the chicken was gluten free, but kept saying how much butter is used. Honestly, when the kitchen and server both claim semolina is gluten free, I don't really trust anything they put out. The staff apologized and gave us some sorbet at the end, but it's not a place I'd go back to. They did have a good cider on tap and cool atmosphere. I'll give 2 stars since there appears to be some options and its a nice looking place, but hard to trust as a celiac.

The waiter was very knowledgeable about Celiac and told me that pretty much everything on the menu that wasn’t obviously gluten containing (like pasta) was or could be made gluten free! The fryer was gluten-free on my visit (the rosemary fries were awesome). Patio has great heat lamps for outdoor dining!

This is my second time trying this restaurant. Both were more or less fails. The first time I was told incorrectly by my server that nothing chicken-focused was GF. Someone reached out to me and corrected that mis-information. So we are a couple of years later, and I wanted takeout. It's a busy place, so I wanted curbside pickup, which is described on the website. So I pull up and call per the instructions. Nooooo, sorry we don't do that. And the website had listed just a couple of things that were GF, but I thought - how is risotto not GF? watermelon salad? So I called. The gentleman yessed me up and down on the phone - yes, everything "except the obvious" is GF - we have all heard that dangerous advice before. And - yes, we will update the website right away, things should be marked correctly on the takeout menu. That has not happened. Anywhoo, we ordered a chicken and the side of risotto, which cost more $66, plus a tip. Both were almost inedibly salty to our tastebuds (especially the risotto), and we are not a particularly low-salt household. So buyer beware on this one.

had a great experience! they stated “Celiac” versus just “gluten free” to communicate to the kitchen. menu isn’t marked, but they advise what’s safe and what’s not if you state what you’d like. may have just been seasonal but had an entire hard cider menu also!!

Great place!! Beautiful atmosphere. Met the manager at the WGBH wine and food fest. He said the owner is celiac and they are used to dealing with food issues. They were outstanding taking my order.

The menu is small, but much of it is GF or can be made GF. Lovely and thoughtful service. Very popular so you probably want to make reservations
