Have eaten here a few times, great GF menu, I have never had any issues, but I would like to see a few dairy free items as I am also lactose intolerant. Thanks

Francesca’s had a very large gluten free menu available. They had gluten free pasta and pizza, and other entrees and appetizers as well. The food was delicious and safe for Celiac diners.

This is one of my favorite restaurants and I was very pleased to know that they have a gluten-free menu. I recently found out that I am intolerant to gluten and it has been hard to find good menus to choose from. They have a really good gluten-free bread that looks like a pita bread. And a big selection in the gluten-free menu.

Waiter had to double check if pasta is cooked in separate water (it is), so staff are not super aware. Pasta was not the best I've ever had, but not the worst either. However, dessert was DELICIOUS, I licked the plate clean. I have Celiac and did not get sick, so definitely a good stop if you're craving pasta and in the area. For sure stop for dessert, and order the Torta Lava!

The server was very accommodating in getting me a gluten free menu and making suggestions. The pasta was good, but very expensive for a very small portion.

Dinner was below average. What happened? Used to love this place. Plenty of GF options. Good GF safety. Never been sick. But wow, what happened? My wife and I both were thinking we should have just made something (anything) at home and we are not gourmet chefs.

Have been here so many times for casual dinner or big extended family dinners. They are always accommodating and attentive to gf needs. They have a gluten free menu. It's a full menu with great options, not just a few boring items. We started with the GF SPIEDINI DI GAMBERI - 3 skewers of grilled shrimp, tomatoes, and mushrooms over lightly dressed greens; then GF PASTA ALLA SICILIANA with generous amounts of grilled chicken with rapini, sun-dried tomatoes, burrata, marcona almonds. It was fresh and delish. Finally the GF BURRATA CON PROSCIUTTO E ASPARAGI which was a perfect light salad of proscuitto, shaved asparagus, and marcona almonds in a light dressing.

Love this place! They have a gluten free menu and making something dairy free basically means removing cheese most of the time. I love their Francesca’s salad (lots of great vegetables) and the braised short rib pasta (no cheese). Delish! We just went there and no one had a bad reaction to the food. My husband had the lamb shank and loved it. Great spot for some Italian food.
