Paella was good and I didn’t get sick. The waitress was very accommodating.

Not impressed and certainly not worth the money. The waitress was very good with the celiac options but none the less I was sick moments from exiting this establishment. I ordered king crab (VERY SMALL) and they made me a side of what ended up being speghetti. The side tasted good but certainly not worth running to the toilet afterwards. Regardless of being a celiac, I wouldn’t recommend this place to anyone.

We ate here, and I do not think we got glutened, but I can't say I felt confident. The host said they could accommodate us with pizza or pasta and the pizza is made on a separate pan so as not to contact cooking surface, so it started out fine. Our server was completely uninformed and we got blank looks when we mentioned celiac and that we had to avoid cross contact. He said he would let the kitchen know but as I mentioned it was not confidence inspiring. I ended up speaking with the owner and letting him know, and I he immediately went to to the kitchen to make sure they understood. The pizza and pasta were OK, and I think they got it right in the end. Just be careful and outspoken.

I'm celiac and i recommand this restaurant. I had pasta with marinara sauce and chicken. The waiter was very helpful and celiac-friendly, he told me that they have special protocol in the kitchen, they clean everything, so it will take more time but they garantee it's GF.

Many delicious items on the menu had gluten free options and the waitress assured me all separate pots and cooking area. I explained I have celiac and the waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful. Also the owner grows the vegetables which were very good. A lot of items were locally grown/sold/caught etc. Cafe Fina house Chardonnay was very good. I had the wild salmon and vegetables and creme brûlée. Amazing.

what a nice surprise to find a celiac friendly restaurant while traveling. Most all the pasta and pizzas can be done gf. Our server was very knowledgeable of Celiac dietary needs and how their menu could work for me, plus they follow cross contamination protocols in the kitchen. On top of that the food was very good.

The waitress was very knowledgeable about cross contamination! Had smoked salmon pizza and shrimp pasta with a white wine sauce, it was honestly the best pasta I have ever had!! Would definitely eat here again, didn't feel sick at all!

They were knowledgeable about GF but the food wasn't that great. I had the clam pasta and it was very salty. The others in my group had the clam chowder, crab cakes and fish and chips and they all said the food was just ok. Might want to try another one of the wharf restaurants instead.

I have celiac and thus far have not had any problems. Cafe Fina has corn pasta that they cook in a separate pot and use separate utensils on. I had the prawn scampi and it was awesome! the staff was super helpful and made super sure they were doing everything they could for me and triple checked that I was given the gluten free pasta. the options are not huge but the food was delicious. I would definitely go back.
