Ate here again last week, which makes my 7th meal here. I’m celiac and haven’t been glutened once yet. They’re careful if you let them know. Separate GF menu. They have GF flatbread breadsticks, now, so you don’t feel left out when they bring non-GF people breadsticks and dipping sauces. However, they may not have any made when you ask for them, so you may have to wait. I’ve had broiled haddock, chicken, a mixed-meat pasta, and a steak, and no problems...other than large portions (I eat serving sizes). So I always have two meals out of the one. I’ve also had a GF mousse dessert here, which was also tasty.
The staff was very knowledgeable about gluten free and celiac. There was also an extensive gluten free menu with pastas and pizzas, which is always wonderful. Great place to go!——-However, I may have gotten contaminated from here? We’re not sure and it wasn’t very badly, but we think that there could have been trace amounts of gluten. If you’re very sensitive to contamination, please avoid because you may have a worse reaction than I did. (I ate the cheese pizza just as a heads up)
I went to the one in Nashua, NH and it was a 10/10 would go again. Their gluten free menu was huge and the options were incredible. I had the gluten free flatbread appetizer and it was the best GF bread I've had, the pasta was good, and the tiramisu was fantastic. Definitely a place to go if you want to grab a bite to eat and are gluten free.
I love that they had a separate GF menu! Makes the conversation with the waiter so much easier. I had the flatbread sticks as an app. They were ok, but I find it annoying that we have to pay for them when they give regular breadsticks out for free. I ordered the seafood fra diavolo for dinner and it was delicious!
The food was yummy and so far no negative reactions (I have Celiac). I ordered the scallops for an appetizer and bbq chicken pizza as an entree. I'm 99% sure the crust is by Against the Grain (you can buy this at Market Basket). But I love this crust and often use it at home so I was happy!
My daughter has celiac and reports that this was a GREAT restaurant. They have an exclusive GF menu that is much more than just pasta. All of our food was delicious and served by very friendly servers. We will certainly return when back in this area
We went here hoping for a nice family meal - we ended up with a 2.5 hour dinner ( we sat as soon as we came into restaurant 6:15 - our food was delivered 2 hours later - my food was cold still frozen on inside - three meals were overcooked because they were sitting under a heating lamp for probably an hour - and the celiac guest was cross contaminated - one slice into pizza she knew ..... They brought our her food on the same plate as the other pizza ordered and other bread products - not placed on to table first and handled by server who handled all the other dishes - they may need a tutorial on how to serve gluten free safe. I would not recommend this to anyone who wants cooked food and no cross contamination.
I have tried both pasta and pizza from these guys and I have to say they are hands down the best I have ever tried. Their pizza crust has the best consistency and it always tastes fresh. Never had a reaction from them. If they come out with gluten free bread sticks I will be so pumped!
Fratello's has an excellent gluten free menu. They have a huge selection from pasta dishes to pizza. The food is so tasty I didn't believe it was gluten free. They don't cross contaninate, which is great because I'm very sensitive. The bbq chicken pizza is superb! Their pizza crust is the best I have ever had! The gluten free pasta is better than any other restaurant. They are the BEST! If you try them, you won't want to go anywhere else!
Angels Sang As a celiac, eating out is a ......drag. The most I can hope for at most restaurants is a salad snd some shrimp cocktail. Last night changed the game. Not only is the property elegant but the service was top notch. Diners can eat in the well appointed lounge or wait for a table. Downstairs ,a classic pianist plays dinner music. But all that pales in comparison to ....A FULL GLUTEN FREE MENU. Each signature dish was recreated with zero gluten. Cheesy bread sticks, pasta fra Diablo, Woodfired pizza.....the list goes on and on. As if all that wasn’t enough, there was one more surprise. A gluten free chocolate mousse encased in chocolate ganache. Thank you, chef, for the best dining experience I’ve had in forever.
I want to start off by saying the pizza is phenomenal. I had no problem with the pizza. The atmosphere was fantastic as well. Never had any problems with cross contamination or the gf breadsticks. My issue was with the pasta. I got the creamy broccoli chicken Alfredo and it had a really off-putting taste to it. I was really disappointed because I love pasta with some good sauce. It tasted so odd to me, as if it had been preserved or coated with a plastic tinge or had a plastic burn to it. The chicken was in whole pieces at the bottom of the dish, rather than being cut up and mixed with the pasta and broccoli. May try coming here again with friends who aren’t as big foodies as me because I’m sure the non gf stuff is good too.
Two girls with celiac. Four times we have eaten here( they love the piano and gluten free bread sticks). Each time they pick something new and enjoy the not getting sick after. Fratello’s is worth the one hour drive for us.
They had a separate gf menu which was nice... but the food was super bad. One of the dishes we ordered had raw chicken in it. They also offer more gf breadsticks, which is actually an extra $5- and it's literally plain pizza crust.
Dedicated gf menu. The pizza / bread dough was amazing!! It had almost a puff pastry consistency to it. The bread sticks were to die for!!! Atmosphere was nice with someone playing the piano on the grand piano. I'd go back to Laconia just for the food =)
Service was slow and waitress brought me a gluten pasta dish - I only questioned because I thought I remembers the menu said penne not linguini. Pasta needed seasoning once I got the right dish. The gf flatbread was decent but I had to ask for separate butter/spreads.
I am a celiac with other allergies and they have always gone above and beyond to accommodate me. Delicious! Last visit I brought my own pasta as I can't have theirs and had a fantastic seafood meal! My visitors love it too!
The gf options are great here! There's tons! I hadn't had chicken broccoli Alfredo since I went gluten free 2 years ago. It was delicious! The flatbread ap was great! The decor is interesting but I realized it was an old bank when I saw the vault with a table inside. Wish I had room for dessert!
Not the BEST pasta, but certainly alright. There was way too much marinara sauce on my pasta, and it wasn't the type of pasta that would absorb sauce well. It was dissapointing when they brought out exquisite fresh bread for everyone else who wasn't eating gf (I was the only one in my party) and they had nothing to accomodate. I also didn't understand why a regular pasta dish with sauce was $11, but alfredo and broccoli was $20 (really? double the price?). They did have many menu options though, so that was a very nice plus. They also serve gf mixed drinks and have a lowered price happy hour.
My wife and I eat here frequently. I have Celiac and have found that Fratello's pasta is among the best. I loved the seafood alfredo before my diagnosis and even though it's not on the gf menu, they always take the time to make it when I stop in.
Staff knowledgable and everyone very nice but my wife got really sick after eating here. The food was delicious so we think they served her regular pasta instead of GF! Haven't been back again yet but I think we will try it again.
Great Italian food that can be ordered gluten free. They have more gf pasta options than I have see at any other place. I ordered chicken and broccoli Alfredo. I definitely would like to go back and try their gf lasagna and brick oven pizza. For those who are dining with non-gf people, my boyfriend said his food was tasty as wll and they have large portions.
