    GREAT PLACE! gorgeous restaurant, very reasonable prices, amazing quality. very gluten free/celiac friendly. gluten free category right on the main menu, separate cooking spaces, even the pizza is super safe. cooked in a foil tray, it comes out crispy and uncut. highly recommend. safest and most delicious of all the gf places i had to eat in the area on vacation. wish we had found it sooner than the last day!

    We loved the gluten free bread with olive oil, pizza, and salmon salad! Delicious!

    Went tonight for the second time...boy was that a mistake. The sevice was horrible and after talking with the "manager" service was still bad.Took over an hour to get the food. Gluten free meal came out cold and was the last to arrive.

    I was so excited the first time that I went here because my server was very knowledgeable and they had a dedicated prep space etc but the next time I went, I was told I could have the Alfredo sauce. Took me 2 weeks to stop being dizzy and sick.

    Chef Francesco is extremely knowledgable and cautious about gluten free. He has a separate prep space and dedicated GF utensils. Unfortunately, not all of his staff is properly educated. One of the servers was sadly misinformed and told one of my readers that all the pasta sauces were safe if ordered with the GF penne and she became ill for a week :(. Please note: only the marinara sauce and garlic & olive oil sauces are GF. But they do have fantastic GF pizza and I look forward to trying their GF penne with the marinara. You can read my entire GF review of Francesco's on my blog:

    Really good gourmet tasting GF pizza! The crust tasted very buttery and the sauce/ingredients used really made it stand out from all others that I have tried. The restaurant is nicely decorated and features an open kitchen with many chefs. The part that I enjoyed the most was the fact that the GF pizza was the same price as a normal pie! FINALLY someone who isn't trying to make a buck off of us! It was well appreciated!

    They don't have a separate GF menu but they do have some great gf options. I had the skirt steak (gf and dairy free). It was fantastic ! My daughter had the gf pasta. Very good. They also have gf pizza. Great place

    Great atmosphere. Offer GF pizza, pasta and bread. Pizza and bread with dipping sauce were very good. For once it felt like a normal dining experience! I didn't have to sit and watch everyone else eat appetizers until my main meal arrived!! Thank you!
